My Role at Interlink 

As a Principal Legal Recruitment Consultant here at Interlink, I mainly focus on Senior Lawyer and Partner moves in all private practice areas, across the London region. 

I deal with mainly top tier clients, these include US, Magic Circle, Boutique and Silver Circle Firms. I really like to get to know my clients on a personal level as I find that this helps to recruit candidates that suit not only the skill set required but also the culture of the office, leading to a long and successful career at the firm. 

Why Recruitment?

I started my career working in a Barristers’ Chambers, after spending 5 years at the firm I made the big decision to alter my career and move into recruitment, I started off working in-house at large law firm before joining Interlink in 2019. My previous experience provides me with an excellent grounding in all things legal which I use daily in my role. 

I chose Interlink because, from day 1, I was bought into the businesses’ consultative approach and have always enjoyed the work environment and culture, working with people I enjoy spending time with. That, in fact, is something I always advise my candidates whenever they are looking for a new position, if you want the role to be long term, make sure you get on well with the people you are working or meeting with, as you see them more than your family! I also love London, and as I recruit for this region, I get the opportunity to visit most weeks which is a great bonus! 

Outside of Work

Family is the most important thing to me so in my spare time I try to spend as much time as possible with my partner and infant daughter (who loves to give me the run around!). I want to make as many memories as possible so you will never find me passing up any opportunity for a good day out!  

I’m a Manchester United fan and I enjoy watching them (most of the time) and I never miss a game, I especially enjoy watching these with a beer in my hand, surrounded by my friends and family.
