Our enthusiasm, friendly approach, personal service and industry knowledge make us stand out from the crowd. We have a total of over 50 years’ recruitment experience gained in Guernsey and the UK, covering a huge variety of fields in the finance, legal, commercial and public sectors. We’re members of the Recruitment & Employment Confederation UK and our Consultants are all professionally qualified. We also take time to support the local business community, schools and various Guernsey charities.
We listen to your needs, keep in touch and build strong relationships with both our candidates and clients to ensure the best match for both sides.
If you’re looking for a permanent, contract or temporary role, we’re here to help.
I joined Situations over 16 years ago, having worked previously in business to business public relations, marketing, travel and administration, in the UK, Guernsey and abroad, all of which helped me gain very relevant, transferable skills which prepared me well for a career in recruitment and business management. Together with my fellow director Melissa, I’m responsible for the day to day running of Situations, which keeps us pretty busy, but I still love to recruit and I place candidates at every level and in every business sector. I’m a Fellow of the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC).
When I’m not working, I’m happily running around after my young daughter Daisy, spending time with my boyfriend, family and friends. I travel when I can, love cooking, meals out, walking and motorbiking and I try and squeeze in some yoga when I find the time. My daughter Daisy says I like ‘mummy juice’ (that’s wine for us grown-ups) and ‘wine with bubbles’. She’s very perceptive!
Before joining Situations my background was in law; I was a Paralegal and Company Administrator at Collas Day (now Collas Crill) for 13 years. I was also Membership Secretary of the Institute of Directors for 8 years. I’ve been at Situations for over 15 years now, I became a Shareholder in 2011 and I can honestly say I’ve never been happier in a role. As a Director, I enjoy the business management that my job involves, supervising staff and placing permanent and contract candidates at mid to senior level. I’m a Fellow of the REC and I also hold ILM and CMI management qualifications.
At the weekends I love spending time with my daughter Amelie, my husband and friends, swimming in the sea (in the summer and sometimes on Boxing Day!) and walking around the Castel lanes. I also enjoy travelling, good food and wine and I love trying new international cuisine.
Having spent over 10 years in the Human Resources function for various commercial, government and financial companies, including major Guernsey organisations such as Sure and PWC, and gaining my Masters in Human Resources Management, I decided it was time to follow my passion - Recruitment!
My role at Situations includes working with candidates who are looking for permanent roles, liaising with clients to fill vacancies, as well as assisting Situations with operational requirements such as policy review. In December 2016 I was promoted to Associate Director, reflecting the fact that I'm Jenny and Melissa's right hand woman.
At the weekends you can find me out and about, walking the beautiful cliffs of Guernsey and stopping off for a coffee at the cafés along the way, or swimming, cycling or running. I also enjoy baking and meals out- trying new things along with a nice glass of bubbles!
I believe: “Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving!”
Before relocating to Guernsey I gained experience in various sectors including FMCG, Retail, Hospitality and Recruitment, in Latvia and the UK. I spent 5 years as HR & Payroll Administrator at Procter & Gamble where I gained great transferable skills for my current position. I joined Situations over 4 years ago where I manage the Temp Desk, oversee temp payroll and screening, and place permanent and contract staff at all levels. As well as people, I love numbers. I am a Member of the REC and a Certified Recruitment Practitioner.
In my free time I am learning to use Interior Design programs, I like to catch up with family and friends, to draw, and at the weekends I enjoy running Jerbourg Kiosk with my partner over the summer. We've also opened a café in town; as you can tell I like to keep busy!
I joined Situations in April 2016, initially on a contract basis in order to cover a maternity leave, and they must have liked me because I was made permanent in October 2016. I worked in HR roles since 2000, prior to which I worked in Securities and Fund Administration. This background in the finance industry is very useful when dealing with candidates as I have a good understanding of the types of roles they undertake. Recruitment has been part of my generalist HR roles for many years, so it is very interesting for me to see how things work ‘from the other side’. I gained my Certificate in Personnel Practice in 2000 and have also now passed the REC Certificate in Recruitment Practice.
My husband and I recently purchased a camper van so we have been pottering around Guernsey with the intention of taking it a bit further afield in future, maybe to the UK or France. I really enjoy having a reason to be outdoors and love living in such a beautiful place.
