We welcome Bridget to the Impact team!
Bridget is an experienced recruiter and has joined Impact as our Principal Talent Partner. We are delighted to have Bridget on board and are in no doubt that she will have a fantastic career at Impact.
I moved to London from New Zealand and fell in love with it. Told Mum I would be back in 6 months and almost 10 years later I am still here. I now live in Berkshire with my partner and our kitten Toby. I love to travel, love a rainy Saturday spent in the pub even better if there is a game of Rugby on. Fell into Recruitment and went on to become top biller on both temp and perm desks whilst at Tate. Now looking forward to building my desk at Impact!
I chose Impact because I met the team and instantly felt like I was a part of something. Everyone is so warm and friendly and I knew I wanted to be a part of that. I also love working with Creative clients and that is where my experience lies so it felt like a perfect fit.
I am a Principal Talent Partner recruiting for permanent office support roles within Creative.
It has been fantastic so far! Already have jobs on and getting a hang of the system!
As corny as it sounds I hope to be able to place the best talent in the market and help people find their dream roles.
