Recruitment & Resourcing

Professional support for peace of mind


Getting to know Jennifer De Maria

You and I could be having a chat about sourcing candidates, how phone screens went, crazy ideas you have, or how bad the weather is here in Northern Ireland. I'm a generalist recruiter, working on all levels of roles from entry to C-level.  Hires I've helped make have been with domain expertise in tech, marketing, sales, consulting, finance, product, medical science, AI and consulting.  I've led recruitment consultants through complex client delivery projects, typically work on senior management roles in the area of marketing or human resources.

You can find me travelling to the ancient islands of Ireland and Croatia, or screaming at the side-lines (sorry in advance to any referees reading this) in support of my children's football and basketball teams.  Before the little devils came along I either lived or travelled in the UK, USA, Sweden, Croatia, France, Belgium, Netherlands and Italy.
