Ellie in Singapore

With twenty five years’ experience in HR, Recruitment and Talent, and within Executive Search as a head-hunter of HR Leaders, I founded my business in 2016 to support both organisations and individuals as The Recruitment Coach. I help leaders land their perfect job and be brilliant in it by playing to their strengths.

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 am now a Coach, helping leaders land their perfect role and being brilliant in it, by playing to their strengths.

I have studied at both Durham and Oxford University. 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 am a ‘Digital Mums’ qualified Social Media Manager and I help my clients use social media more effectively to network and raise their profile.

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

I believe in giving back and paying forward and do a range of pro bono work as CoChair of the British Chamber of Commerce in Singapore’s Leadership, Talent and Development Committee, a Mentor for Protégé, and an Ambassador for KidsOut.

Alongside my work, which is a passion, I am a mum to an energetic seven-year-old. I am a book lover, a festival goer, a builders’ tea drinker and a house plant nurturer. I enjoy art and photography.

                  

 

"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.

AC - Head of HR Projects
"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.
