Recruitment Consultant
0161 233 6360

Christine made a career move into legal recruitment in May 2015 and has over 20 years’ experience of the In-house sector. She worked as part of an In-house team for 13 years and following that became Operations Manager for the Commerce & Industry Group. Christine is always looking for ways to promote the In-house legal sector and is always keen to pass on her knowledge to both clients and candidates, whether they be currently working In-house or looking to make a move into it. Over the years, Christine has built up great working and personal relationships with a number of leading General Counsel and is often a first port of call should they be looking to recruit within their teams. She has also recently been instrumental in the successful re-launch of the AWS Manchester. Christine has successfully completed the Great North Run and the London Marathon. 

"What I liked about Christine was that she kept me fully updated which seems to be rare among recruitment consultants I've worked with before, who seek you out for a job, promise the earth, get your CV and put it forward for a job, and then you hear nothing! She didn't give me false hope and a load of flannel. Christine emailed me to let me know that I wouldn't hear from the potential employer for a couple of days because the manager was on holiday - this was before I'd even got an interview - which impressed me. She then kept me updated throughout, told me when she was on leave and who I could contact in her absence. She was always quick to reply and happy to talk about the post. She raised numerous queries with the employer once the job had been offered and kept me in the loop throughout. She was very human and down to earth too and had an understanding of what I was looking for in a job and whether that would fit with what the employer wanted. 

She even offered to print off the offer letter and contract for me (which was sent to me by email from the employer as I didn't want to risk printing at my current firm)."
