About me

I strongly believe that a company's greatest asset is it's people. I have dedicated my career to helping agencies and in-house teams to recruit and retain the best talent through improving and implementing meaningful processes. My experience within the creative industries is predominantly within Talent and Resource Management. These roles have required an ability to present solutions to problems that are cost efficient and produce tangible results. I'm currently working at Portas in the Talent Team. If you are interested in working with us please do not hesitate to get in touch jobs@portasagency.com
