About me

Joining Collingwood in September 2018 as a Business Support Executive, Angel is now heading up the Marketing here at Collingwood.

Having enjoyed a varied career beginning at the Chamber of Commerce, doing an apprenticeship within Business Administration I progressed to managing B2B events, supporting with export and providing support to the CEO. I later went on to work within marketing, sales support, and procurement. I initially joined Collingwood mostly based on their values and culture. It has opened my eyes to the world of exec search and recruitment and how recruitment isn’t just about securing someone a job! Collingwood really do care about what they do, and how they do it, and it shows not just throughout the culture of the company but within every single assignment we undertake – our clients are the heart of everything we do.  

Outside of work 

Outside of work I love to visit National Trust & English Heritage sites, going for countryside and forest walks with my family.  I do like to keep fit and although I prefer to be in the gym, I am currently trying to master yoga! I also love to listen and try new mindfulness techniques.

During the pandemic I decided to try something new and enrolled on an Open University course which I am thoroughly enjoying studying. I love to learn new things!

I like to relax in the evenings with a good book and have read a wide array of genres. I often find myself reading real life stories (not an autobiography), usually of people in interesting jobs, such as a Prison Guard or Doctors stories, or accounts of historic events – these insights fascinate me! But when I want to get away from ‘real life’ I delve into a captivating crime thriller.

What do you like most about your job?

Although I no longer work within a client support / facing role I do get to liaise with Collingwood’s partners, and very much enjoy being part of the background work. Marketing is continuously evolving so I am constantly learning within my role and looking for ways to improve and build on what we already have here.
