With over twenty years’ experience as a successful recruiter, both in-house and within Executive Search as a head hunter, I set up my own business in 2016 to support both organisations and individuals as The Recruitment Coach.

About me

I started my career in HR, Resourcing and Talent roles within the retail industry. I then worked as a head hunter specialising in HR leadership roles. I now work with individuals as a coach and with organisations to help them improve their recruitment.

I am a Barefoot trained Coach and a member of the International Coaching Federation at Associate Certified Coach (ACC) level. I am an accredited Strengths Profile Practitioner. I completed the Digital Mums Social Media Management course in 2017. I can also help you use social media more effectively.

I strongly believe in taking opportunities that come your way and stepping out of your comfort zone, so I have lived and worked outside of the UK in Germany, Chile and, most recently, Singapore.

Alongside my work, which is a passion, I am a mum and a wife, a book lover, a festival goer, a builders’ tea drinker and an art, photography, fashion and social media fan.



"Ellie’s positive energy and sage advice made a dramatic difference." Slide Ellie delivered training on LinkedIn to our HR team. It was focused, fun and effective, giving the team a variety of tools to use both to enhance their own presence on LinkedIn and also develop our employer brand in the market. This was supplemented with individual coaching sessions. I would highly recommend Ellie - it was a real pleasure working with her and I thoroughly appreciated her pragmatic approach.

"I am in awe of Ellie's ability to command a room and get people on board with ideas." Slide I have worked with Ellie for many years and she always delivers a fantastic level of service. Ellie understands what I need, works quickly and always delivers what she promises. I like the fact that Ellie will challenge where she needs to but always in a constructive and balanced way. Ellie is just really great to work with!

FR - HR Director
"Ellie is a delight to work with; knowledgeable, patient, articulate and generous with her ideas." Slide Ellie worked with me when I was looking for my last role. I found her coaching extremely supportive and positively challenging. She used her experience of Executive Search and also took the time to get to know me personally. The coaching was a catalyst for making some key decisions. I am thankful for her help and I would definitely recommend her to others.

JE - Global Chief People Officer
"Ellie offered the perfect balance between listening and challenging at the right times" Slide Ellie’s coaching is warm yet professional. She has allowed me to be honest about my challenges and to open myself up to some positive changes.
