Helena joined Ethic Recruit as a Trainee Recruitment Consultant in October 2020 after relocating from London to Cornwall. By the time she had completed her degree in Business Administration at the University of Bath, which included an Exchange Programme in Norway, Helena had already experienced work placements across the spectrum, from high profile, to start-up companies. She first got a taste of recruitment as a staffing manager, after a former colleague recommended her for a job, due to her exceptional communication skills. Focusing on temporary staffing, Helena’s exceptional client relationships were reflected by the distinguished clients she managed, such as the Royal Palaces, Royal Academy of Arts and Twickenham Rugby Stadium. After making the decision to relocate to Cornwall, in order to change her lifestyle, Helena was attracted to a position at Ethic Recruit.

Emily joined Ethic Recruit as a Trainee Recruitment Consultant in October 2020 after completing her Teacher training. Following a 1st class degree in Archaeology from the University of Reading, Emily undertook a Primary PGCE to train as a Teacher. Although she passed this with a distinction, Emily knew that she wanted to be involved in Education, but not as a classroom teacher. Therefore, knowing from experience what makes an outstanding teacher, she pursued a reputable recruitment consultancy to use this knowledge, in order to provide outstanding candidates to client Schools. After coming across Ethic Recruit on her search, she knew instantly it would be the right fit for her, as she, like the company, believes in providing exceptional staff for the benefit of the Schools and it’s students. Emily was a mentor at University and plans to use this experience as she progresses at Ethic Recruit, supporting the future newcomers. Outside of work Emily still has a keen interest in archaeology, going on camping excavations with friends. She also likes to hang out with her beloved Golden Retriever, Oslo, keep fit and bake.
Jordana joined Ethic Recruit as a Recruitment Consultant in October 2020, following a move from Devon, so that she could move closer to her family and friends, having grown up in Cornwall. Prior to Jordana’s move, she had established herself as an incredibly successful Field Sales Manager within the competitive hair industry. Working for brands such as Loreal and GHD, covering the South West of England, Jordana built positive relationships with all her clients, for whom she always went the extra mile. After working away from home and having to travel solo for many years, she decided she wanted to look for a role where she could use her extensive interpersonal skills, but work as part of a team. She hadn’t wanted to consider recruitment, due to the bad name many companies have for how they treat staff, but after researching into Ethic Recruit, she felt this was the type of company that would value all stakeholders, so got in touch. After a successful interview, due to the COVID pandemic Jordana had to wait eight months to be able to start her position with the company, however, she has expressed that she wants to settle here until she retires, so it’s been worth the wait! Outside of work, Jordana loves to spend time with her husband, three step-daughters, wider family and friends along with her cocker spaniel, Lacey. She also has a keen interest in holistic therapies and crystals.
