During her career, Sophie has risen quickly through the ranks in a variety of management roles. In 2003 she earned a BSc (Hons) Business I.T. degree which led her to gain immediate experience in Office Management followed very quickly to an appointment as a Branch Manager within an international recruitment agency. Sophie's 10 years' experience in the recruitment industry across South Wales and England has been the foundation for the success of her company, Work Wales Ltd. As Co-Founder and Director she built the company from scratch in 2008. Today, Work Wales has developed into one of the fastest growing independent recruitment agencies and Sophie strongly believes that people are the heart of the business.
“We are a business who listens, advises and most importantly cares and in no way are we a one size fits all business. We founded our business on passion, honesty and integrity, values I live by each and every day.”
In addition to her strong leadership skills, Sophie is also an excellent Career Development coach, having undertaken the Train the Trainer course in Seattle; U.S. she has trained, mentored and developed staff for over 10 years. In 2014 she was named one of the finalists for “Female Entrepreneur” in South Wales Business Awards, and her company was awarded “Gold” in the Best For Recruitment in Wales. Sophie has been nominated and attained a variety of awards throughout her career but nothing satisfies her more than securing the perfect job for her candidates whilst ensuring an unrivalled commitment to her clients. Sophie’s focus over the years has been recruiting for multiple industry sectors of all sizes including Constructing, Engineering and Manufacturing. As Work Wales continues to grow Sophie's continued focus is on driving the business forward whilst also specialising in recruiting and head hunting senior level professionals using her natural consultative approach whilst ensuring attention to cultural fit.
