Eleven years ago today I started my own consultancy, Shine Charity Recruitment. It’s been quite a journey, I have met some wonderful people – clients, candidates and associates. Many firm friendships have been made and sadly I have said goodbye to a few people along the way. Last year, when I should have been celebrating 10 years, I was not sure what the future held as the whole world looked like it was grinding to a halt. Thank you to everyone who has walked this journey with me, looking forward to the next 11 years – ha ha!

2021 – New Website, New Office Assistant

New year, new website. This is probably the longest in-development website that poor Alistair at Gleave Media has had to put up with! In the end, I decided to go with the the pared-back, less is more approach, opting for more regular mini-blogs to keep you all updated rather than masses of text about everything I think you should know about.

Let’s hope that 2021 will be an improvement on last year. We are more resilient now, we know we can adapt quickly to changing circumstances and I am sure we will need to draw upon this as we move through the year. I am looking forward to working clients and candidates both old and new, event partners, associates and friends. In the meantime, here is a picture of my new office assistant.
