Profile written by Lucy
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 has had rapid career progression at Pod, after joining as a Senior Consultant she worked her way up to being Team Leader of our UK Supply Chain team (as well as becoming a partner along the way!). When we were launching our new strategy and structure in 2019, NJ decided to make the transition to a Client Solutions Manager role. Within this role NJ delivers senior supply chain searches within the UK, whilst ensuring that Pod is working with all of our clients in the right way. She is an account manager for some of our key partner clients, and is responsible for ensuring all of our clients are aware of all of Pod's offerings across different functions, locations and specialist services.
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.
