⭐ The Your People Partners Story

In the early years of my recruitment career (backing the 1990s 🥸), I grew tired of the outdated methods most recruiters still use to find candidates. That was in the first week of my first recruitment job in Bristol, England.

🇺🇸 After being headhunted to a recruitment start-up making full use of the new-fangled world-wide-web, I moved to Chicago, USA to launch a new recruitment office.

The timing wasn’t quite right though as the new office opened one day before Sep 11th 2001. Back in the UK in 2002, and after another interesting recruitment start-up experience, marriage and motherhood came knocking. Along with this came some rather challenging years with our child, who had cancer at the age of 3.

💕 Being out of work and unemployable, the universe shouted at me. I could hear the universe saying that I needed to finally stand on my own two feet.

Start your own recruitment company.

The time is now to do recruitment your way.

And to start-up, then scale-up your own vision of a modern day recruitment comapny focused on human beings and less on CVs, keywords and AI selecting candidates.

The Universe

😄 I realised I had an opportunity.

Use what I had learned about my tenacity and ability to get through some challenging times to start my own company. After dabbling and learning loads about business, recruitment and myself in two new start-ups, I finally decided to do it for myself!

I fully leant into my vision of fundamentally changing how recruitment is done.

Fed up with the traditional recruiter way of ‘ticking boxes’, I created Your People Partners to help you find the perfect employee to help your business grow whilst saving you time and money.

I also strive to reduce the stress involved in hiring for the people looking for a new job and the business owner we help.

➡️ We understand that recruitment isn’t easy.

➡️ With the right guide helping you along the way, finding and hiring the perfect person for your business doesn’t have to feel overwhelming.

➡️  With decades of recruitment experience, my team here at Your People Partners and I care about helping your business thrive, whether that’s when hiring your 1st or 50th employee.

Greatest success in recruitment: Being asked to open a recruitment office in Chicago at the age of 26 and helping to grow a company to meet their vision and goals from 22 staff to 36 over the course of 18 months (and all staff are still there and doing brilliantly).

Most embarrassing moment: Stepping on Elton John’s big toe. If you want to know the rest of the story, you’ll have to buy me lunch.

Favourite food spot: OXO Brasserie, London. I took my mum there for Mother’s Day and the combination of jazz, fine food and great company made it a fantastic place for lunch. Swiftly followed by Brasserie Ruhlmann in Rockefeller Plaza, Manhattan and again, my mum and I went there on our trip to NYC.

Famous for: Being the first female football commentator with BBC Radio and also doing voiceovers for Capital Radio, London from the age of 14.

Recruitment Career Success: Well, if you take being part of the Your People Partners team aside, then it would the success I have had building and developing relationships with both candidates and clients who have gone on to grow some of their business’s to be global successes.

Most embarrassing moment: On day 3 of moving to Spain to play football in Gibraltar, I lost my passport (you require ID to get in and out of Gibraltar)… I, therefore, had to smuggle my way back into Gibraltar to visit the Embassy or it was a 4-hour journey to Malaga! If Immigration Control is reading this, I am sorry, I didn’t cause any harm.

Favourite Food: Has to be Pizza… although I do make a very good Homemade Crispy Shredded Beef.

I know what you’re thinking:

‘what’s the recipe?’… nice try it’s a Robinson specialty.

Famous For: My Homemade Crispy Shredded Beef… see, you’re even more intrigued now!

Greatest success in recruitment:

A highlight for me has to be helping a hospitality business to grow its team from 300 to over 700 employees. I was also proud to be part of the team that helped Rick Stein to open his first four restaurants outside of Cornwall.

I learnt a lot, including that some roles can be notoriously difficult to recruit. However, I met some lovely people and also had the opportunity to try some amazing food!

Most embarrassing moment:

I once got stuck on a train from Bath to London when I was helping my grandparents on the train with their luggage (I wasn’t due to get on the train!) Luckily there was a stop not too far from Bath, but it was quite embarrassing.

I also got chased by a bee on a train.

Perhaps I should stay away from trains!

Favourite food spot:

I love food and I’m generally easy to please with food.

A special place for me is Zeffirellis in the Lake District. It is an amazing Italian vegetarian restaurant and also has its own jazz bar and cinema. Definitely worth a visit for their awesome pizza and tasty cocktails that taste even better after a hike through the Lake District.

Somewhere closer to home has to be The Seafood Restaurant for very special occasions (the Indonesian Seafood Curry is a must!).

Famous for:

Random film trivia, weekend family hiking adventures (usually getting lost), taking too many photos, family zoom quizzes and epic Mega Blok building.

Most embarrassing moment:

Spoiler: not one for vomit… I suggest you stop reading now.

For many years as I was EXTREMELY travel sick on planes.

Being a big lover of Disney parks, I would travel every year to Walt Disney World which although magical, the 9 hours of air travel was nothing but awful.

One year, after one of those lovely flights I had just convinced myself and my family that I was feeling my normal self. We arrived at the Pop Century resort and checked in with one of the loveliest of Cast Members. At this moment, I realised I wasn’t feeling as peachy as I thought and in a mad panic managed to throw up in the lobby, all the way to the other side of the building, outside around the pool before sticking my head in a trash can. It was at this point a passing woman asked if I wanted a napkin…

I did ask for some chicken strips straight after though!

Favourite Food:

Of course, I’m going to voice that Disney food is the best (slight theme here) so I’m going to say corndog nuggets and a Night Blossom slush from Animal Kingdom. Look it up it’s beautiful!

Famous For:

Eating nearly all foods with a side of mayo… and of course (you guessed it) Disney!

What is your greatest success in recruitment?

Over the years, I was tasked with recruiting individuals for various divisions within the company. From admin-related roles in the fast food industry, sous chefs in the hospitality industry to travel experts in the travel industry. I would say that my greatest success in recruitment has been to successfully fill multiple vacancies in various industries. In addition to this, most of the vacancies I have filled, have celebrated many years within the particular company.

What is your most embarrassing moment?

I studied hospitality after school and had to intern at a Hotel where I had to spend a few weeks in the Food & Beverage division, a few weeks in the Housekeeping division and a few weeks in the Front of House division. I was not feeling too well on my first day in the Front of House division, I was feeling rather queasy and nauseous. To get to the embarrassing moment, we had an introductory meeting that morning that included our Front of House Manager, Assistant Front of House Manager, Head of Concierge and Guest Liaison Officers. The purpose of this meeting was to introduce me to the team and to discuss the previous evening’s arrivals and departures and to discuss the current day’s arrivals and departures. The first thing my Manager asked me was whether I was feeling fine, my intention was to tell him I am feeling rather ‘fragile’ and that I will be just fine. On the contrary, I answered (in front of the team) that I was feeling rather ‘fertile’, but I will be just fine. I did not realise at the time that the team was staring at me in a rather peculiar manner and the Manager responded by saying that I am rather lucky to feel that way so early in the morning. I did not quite understand his response. Only a few minutes later, did I realise, after being told by one of our Liaison Officers, what I had said. I said fertile instead of fragile! From then on, I think rather hard about what I am about to say.

What is your favourite food?

I do not have a favourite food spot, however, I do enjoy Indian cuisine, especially ‘Butter Chicken’. I will not look further, if my eye catches Butter Chicken. From a dessert aspect, I absolutely adore macarons.

What are you most famous for/known for?

Firstly, I was born with teeth…two to be exact and secondly, I can communicate perfectly with liquid in my mouth, whether water, a soft drink, or even coffee.
