Please tell me a bit about yourself

Following my graduation, I have spent the last three years recruiting for the American energy market. I specialise in EPC, Refining and Chemical Manufacturing, in and around Greater Houston. I really enjoy the culture of the States, where the consultative guidance of a recruitment consultant is valued. There is a huge energy market in North America, which offers so many opportunities for clients, contractors and recruiters!

What is your role and what do you do

I am a Senior Recruiter specialising in the North American energy, this includes; refineries, Petrochemical, LNG, and EPC. Geographically, most of the roles are located on the Gulf Coast but I recruit across the whole of the US. I handle roles ranging from graduate engineers to senior leadership.

What do you enjoy most about working with Applica?

In addition to working in the US market, I really value the expertise of the team here who technically understand the market and the life cycle of a project.

Having a deep technical understanding of the projects allows us to headhunt suitable candidates swiftly.

I also feel that I can make a real difference at Applica and that I am not just another employee here.

Why did you choose to work with Applica?

I am passionate about recruiting for the energy market in the US, the US culture and how professional it is. Due to the sheer number of projects Applica is part of, the opportunity to develop my technical knowledge is incredible. To be the best, you must learn from the best, and the senior leadership team at Applica are second to none.

Tell me something not many people know about you

I graduated from university with a degree in Law and had intended to practice as a lawyer in the UK.
