My Role at Interlink

I am an International Legal Recruitment Consultant at Interlink Talent Solutions. I place candidates in their dream positions around the globe. 

I specialise in finding Partners and experienced legal professionals roles in South-East Asia as well as in Hong Kong and China. I gravitated towards these markets after studying Law with Chinese Law at university and travelling Asia after university. My understanding of the vast network of growing Asian economies helps me to find the perfect candidate and place them at international law firms.

I also work directly with firms to locate experienced legal professionals in roles suited to their specific area of law.

 

Why Interlink

At university, I studied LLB Law with Chinese Law which equipped me with basic essential skills required in the legal recruitment industry. I was the university’s commercial pro bono clinic group leader which helped me to develop a basic understanding of a firm's daily operation and commercial awareness. I also worked in the hospitality industry at an Italian restaurant & bar, a role which helped me to develop interpersonal skills.

After graduation I decided to apply my social skills and base knowledge of global legal systems to help practitioners in finding the role of their dreams. Interlink was the obvious choice for me as the fastest-growing independent legal consultancy in the UK. After meeting with some of the team I was made up with the move.

 

Outside of Work

Outside of work, I like to stay active. I run and you can often find me at the local Parkrun, that is if I have not been out with friends the previous evening. I enjoy watching sports and regularly play golf and cricket in addition to swimming and running. I am sociable and love to spend time with friends and family alike whether that be watching films at home or the cinema.
