Susie has enjoyed a successful career in sourcing and nurturing talent for individuals and organisations from top theatre producers and artist managers to international not-for-profit organisations and private equity firms. After graduating in History, Susie began her career in HR within the public sector but for the last 6 years she has been working within a top London based recruitment agency and leading a successful team. Having also worked within account management for one of the UK’s most well established household-name charities, Susie has been able to work on-site to create strong, strategic partnerships and drive change to increase client satisfaction during the lead up to their main annual campaign.
