I started my journey with STR in 2016, joining the UK Architecture team to hire contract professionals in the London market. Within my first 2 years, I built a successful contract desk and achieved multiple promotions from a Level 1 Trainee Recruitment Consultant to a Level 4 Lead Consultant in May 2018.
The opportunity for urban to take their first step into an international market became available, and as a professional who enjoys a challenge, I took it upon myself to start the next incredible and career-altering journey at the STR Group.
New York, New York! In 2018, I began to develop an architecture desk within the New York market, I also began to hire, train and grow my own team of recruitment consultants. I realised at this stage I not only had a passion to succeed but to help others achieve their career goals through mentoring and management.
By the end of 2019, the New York team had hit our first milestone and I achieved my first management promotion to Operations Manager.
Although 2020 saw the architecture market take a hit, the rebuild and development of the US team over the past 3 years has gone from strength to strength. I am now very proud to have a team of 8 highly ambitious recruitment consultants working alongside me to continue growing the American dream!
We now operate a successful architecture and interior design recruitment business within multiple cities in the US including New York, Chicago and Miami. Going on multiple trips over the years to these amazing cities for work has been a huge highlight for me personally!
The biggest career achievement and milestone happened for me in 2022, when I achieved promotion to Operations Director for urban’s US division.
I am extremely proud to have achieved the career I have so far at the STR Group over the last 7 years as a female leader in a company that believes and invests in me. I look forward to growing a long, successful career with the business and to the next adventure ahead!
