About me

Poppy joined Collingwood as an Executive search resource, supporting our Executive Consultants finding the best available talent. Coming from a personal banking background she has extensive customer service experience.

“I have always been interested in the recruitment world but have never been given the opportunity to start a career in this. I enjoy helping people inside & outside of work, and I am hoping to continue this in my new career at Collingwood.”

Having completed sixth form I had no idea what I wanted to do, I knew university just wasn’t for me!

I was taken on as a supervisor at the restaurant I had worked at since I was 16. Following this I was given the opportunity to pursue a career in banking, where I worked as a personal banker for 8 ½ years.

Outside of work

I love spending time with my family, especially my grandma as she makes the best Sunday Roast! 😊

I enjoy taking my 2 dogs out for long walks, their favourite being a trip to our local forest. My partner plays golf each week so we usually end up going on a golf ball hunt each weekend to replace any lost balls!!

Other than that I do like to try and get in the gym 3-4 times a week & I enjoy winding down by going for an evening swim.

What do you like most about your job?

So far, I really like the people I work with and how helpful they have all been, I feel I’ve been made most welcome and it’s a really positive setting. I’m looking forward to learning more about the industry and seeing how I can apply skills from my previous job to my new role.
