Lucy began her recruitment career in 1990 at a London IT executive search and selection firm and soon realised she had found her vocation. After moving to a large UK-wide IT recruitment agency Lucy progressed to Regional Manager before joining a Thames Valley-based consultancy as Head of UK Permanent Services. Keen to return to her native Essex, Lucy became Managing Director of an Essex-based general agency. In 2008 she decided to bring her recruitment expertise and dedication to quality to local clients and set up RecruitAbility with Wendy. Lucy is a Fellow of the Institute of Recruitment Professionals and bound by their code of ethics.
Wendy began her career in the HR department of one of the best known high street retailers in Oxford Street. She then worked for many years as a PA to Chief Executives in the City stockbroking and property sectors, giving her first-hand understanding of what it takes to be a successful PA/EA and administrator. Wendy then ran her own successful retail business before deciding that her skills would combine with Lucy’s experience to make the perfect recruitment consultancy and RecruitAbility was born!
