In December 2017, I joined Pro-Recruitment Group’s highly respected charity and not for profit team to start a Marketing, Communications and Fundraising division to add to the existing recruitment offering of Finance, HR, Legal, Tax, and Executive Appointments. I am now delighted and excited to share, that 14 months on, I can officially introduce Pro-Marketing as the latest brand of the growing Pro-Recruitment Group family.
So where did it all begin?
Prior to joining Pro-Recruitment Group, I worked for a global recruitment agency where I specialised in permanent Marketing and Communications roles for a variety of sectors. I wanted to join a team where I could become more of a market specialist focusing on permanent, contract and interim hires in a market that would give me greater fulfilment. Being a regular fundraiser and participant in charity challenge events away from work meant that a move to recruit in the third sector was appealing and natural.
Highlights so far!
I have enjoyed starting a new division establishing some long-standing relationships with a wide range of organisations across the UK. Partnering with a variety of large international charities through to small start-ups has been exhilarating and each recruitment campaign has offered different challenges. My clients have included high-income, well-established organisations through to smaller more niche charities. It has been extremely rewarding introducing professionals equipped to fulfil each client’s requirements, for example start-ups have needed brand marketing to establish their online presence and larger organisations have needed PR expertise.
It has been enjoyable working such varied marketing, communications and fundraising roles but as the workload got increasingly busy mid-way through 2018 it was quickly apparent that I could not manage it all alone and so Loren Von Sternberg did a wonderful job in finding Ethan Bresnett to come and support me. Ethan has already contributed greatly to the rapid growth of Pro-Marketing by leading many successful recruitment processes.
Away from talent searching, I have had the great pleasure of being involved in the following:
In September 2018 I was honoured to be invited to lead and present several evening sessions to many skilled charity events professionals at the illustrious Churchill War Rooms for the Special Events Forum on the topic of Career Development as well as participate in a panel Q&A. In December 2018, I took part in the London Santa Run in Victoria Park where, as part of a team, I completed a 10k run whilst modelling a Santa outfit to help Starlight Children’s Foundation.
Focus for 2019
I looking forward to widening our client base focusing on mid to senior level roles on a permanent, contract and interim basis.
