About Me

Freelance writer specialising in HR, HR technology and recruitment, writing research focused articles, content and whitepapers on current issues affecting HR and recruitment professionals. 

After 18 years working in executive search, I made the transition into the world of freelance writing 6 years ago. Since then I've developed a niche in the HR and staffing sectors, covering a range of topics addressing employer challenges in areas such as the candidate experience, the impact of technology, the importance of employer brand and the future of work. 

Specialities : Talent acquisition, hiring solutions, artificial intelligence, big data, careers advice, recruitment, HR & HR technology.

My blog for HR tech company Advorto (now Kallidus) is included in the Top 100 HR/Recruitment Blogs listed by Feedspot.
