What did you want to become when you were a kid?

When I was a child I desperatly wanted to be a spy and did have an obession with James Bond, which has continued through to today.

Can you name a book, podcast, or article that has influenced your approach to work?

When I started the Woman In Design Blog series my aim was to showcase brilliant woman creatives, but after having done a few of them, I’ve realised it’s changed to my approach to recruiting woman designers and what’s truly important to them.

Can you share a fun fact or two about yourself?

Fun Fact I probably spend more time in water than on land, I’m very passionate about cold water swimming (Which is a bit mad, I know) and basically any watersports.

What my candidates say

  • Olivia was amazing to work with in helping me find a new role! Friendly and easy to get along with, whilst always being available to provide support when needed. Made the whole process of finding a job much easier and less stressful. Highly recommended.

    Joshua Brettell

    Designer at Loqbox

  • I have been working with Olivia for just over 6 months now and in that short time she has been hugely supportive of my career ambitions. It has been a pleasure to work with Olivia, she is always a joy to speak to and clearly knows what she is doing. Olivia has recently helped place me in a role which she recommended for my direction and it has turned out to be a great fit! I have always appreciated Olivia’s high and clear communication throughout. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone needing support in the world of recruitment.

    Zara Weston

    Creative Producer at Motability

  • Working with Olivia was an absolute pleasure. Within 12 days of our initial call I had landed an incredible job that she had found for me. For each stage of the application process she would call before and after to answers any questions and to find out how it all went. There was not a moment within this process where I didn’t feel supported and that was greatly appreciated. If you want someone that’s easy to talk to, incredibly helpful and simply wonderful, I could not recommend Olivia enough.
