Sophie Shakeshaft

Digital Marketing - UK

I am very passionate about matching the best talent with my clients not just on a technical basis, but also on a cultural one. I believe that recruitment is all about listening and understanding the needs of both clients and candidates, and that culture plays a huge part in this! If you want a recruiter that advocates for rough diamonds, and has never said the phrase “let’s circle back” I’m your girl! If I’m not at work, you can find me walking my dog, reading a good book, or in the pub with the girls.
