Lauren originally joined Pod as a researcher, but her natural flair for working with people and great fit with the team meant she became a fully-fledged recruitment consultant in October. Lauren sits within our UK procurement team and focuses exclusively on the food and food retail market.
Lauren made a great impact straight away at Pod, working on our high-profile multi-hire project with the Co-op and successfully delivering results on several roles. This has begun what we hope will be a long and successful career with Pod!
Lauren is our resident Ozzie, after graduating from Queensland university she spent several years working her way up the retail ladder, finishing in a senior management position, she then moved to London and after a short stint at Deliveroo, she found her London home at Pod HQ.
Lauren loves to use her new base in London to make the most of our close proximity to Europe and can often be found jetting off on weekend breaks to various cities. She quickly became renowned in the office for her random Australian colloquialisms and soon had the team using all her favourite phrases! Her biggest achievement in life so far is building a robot as part of her final year art project at university, but it didn’t win because her tutor didn’t understand her abstract vibe (apparently!).
