Profile written by Erika
NJ became a welcome addition to the Pod Squad in September 2013. She brings two years of recruitment experience with her, including time spent at Randstad where she focused on the food and beverage sector. Here she was extremely successful and started to make waves in the FMCG recruitment space.
NJ sits on the supply chain team, managing the recruitment of entry to manager level appointments in the FMCG food space. She possesses an excellent knowledge of this candidate pool with a strong network of high calibre individuals. She possesses a genuine interest in her industry and as an avid reader of The Grocer, she quickly became our resident FMCG market knowledge guru. She manages the accounts of many of Pod’s partner clients including KraftHeinz, Danone and innocent.
One of the things we really loved about NJ at interview was her values driven attitude towards recruitment, dedicated work ethos and determination to provide an unrivalled service to customers. She continues to display these qualities on a daily basis.
NJ is a champion multi-tasker – within just a few weeks of taking up her new post with Pod she completed the dissertation for her MA and got married – any one of those three things no mean feat on its own! For those of you wondering, her MA was in Medieval Cultures and her dissertation was on ‘The Cosmography of Giants in Old Norse Poetry’. She is so far known at Pod for her love of Vikings and shooting people with Nerf guns in the office.
