Keen hand-eye coordination for executive and non-executive recruiting

I usually wield a hockey stick for Blackheath & Elthamians Hockey Club on weekends but, in the off season, I enjoy tidying up the garden where I’m equally as handy with a rake and shovel in hand. Outside of work, I love to stretch my legs on a country walk to find a local pub and even go on the occasional run with Mrs Earnshaw – our last being the 10km perimeter of Lago Albano in Castel Gandolfo, Italy.

Having recently joined Peridot Partners, I bring over 12 years’ recruitment experience spanning across healthcare, local and central government, not-for-profit, charity and commercial sectors.

Prior to working in executive search, I led on candidate attraction and searching strategies for the EMEA outsourced recruitment division of a major global recruiter. This involved training recruitment consultants in how to find and attract candidates as well as developing advertising strategies for a broad array of commercial clients including GSK, Honeywell, Bausch + Lomb, Societe Generale and Nestle.

I’ve gained industry recognised qualifications in online searching techniques, developed strong networks across a broad landscape of industry sectors and act as a subject matter expert at Peridot Partners with regards to executive search research and methodology.

I have appointed senior board and executive leaders in the UK, Europe, Middle East and Australasia.

My main specialism is executive and non-executive director healthcare in general and senior medical roles such as medical director, director of public health and director of nursing as well as those hard to find technical positions.
