My role at Keele is to help companies attract and recruit Keele Talent into Internships, Placements and Innovation Projects. 15 years commercial experience (Sales and Marketing) and 18 years in Higher Education/Public Sector, I support our students to gain meaningful work experience, and our graduates to get permanent work. Having spent 15 years in the commercial sector working for companies from micro to multinational, I feel I can bring a good understanding of business and the benefits (and challenges) of recruiting talent into your organisation.

I have a degree in French and Italian, have lived and worked in Italy for several years, and have a postgraduate qualification in the "Management of student work experience" which supports my more recent roles. During my six years at Keele University, I have been able to work with many organisations in Staffordshire, with a particular focus on SMEs. I am a focused, target driven person, and enjoy connecting and supporting people into work.


Area of expertise: Business Engagement for Student Recruitment, Internships and Innovation Projects, Student Support for Internships, Project Management.
