After a 10-year, overseas, career in aviation, literally spanning all four corners of the globe, Toni entered the world of recruitment, on her return to the UK. She has built over 10 years’ experience and expertise as a senior consultant and resourcer. Over that time, she developed a successful niche connecting graduate and apprentice candidates with blue chip clients across the UK. She is particularly proud of her work championing often overlooked candidates from diverse backgrounds and women returning to work.
Building relationships is a key strength. She understands how to talk to candidates and is passionate about keeping everyone informed through the recruitment process. This is vital in her new role as a researcher and resourcer for our busy public sector team in the Midlands, where she offers the best possible experience for candidates and clients, whilst lending research support to the lead consultant. Her work ethic is second to none. From mapping the market to collating longlists and organising interview schedules to advising on equitable remuneration packages, she oversees everything.
When asked why Seymour John, she said: “I share the same values. I believe that the candidate is just as important as the client and that listening, communicating and supporting the candidate, throughout the recruitment process, is essential – up to the point where they have started their new role and beyond.”
In Toni’s world, there is no such thing as ‘spare’ time. When she’s not recruiting, she is running her own business as a makeup and body-paint artist, and is vying with P&C’s Jo Boichot for title of Queen Fundraiser, through her role as Chair of her local school’s fundraising committee. Toni also enjoys running and taking the dog out with the children on long muddy walks.
