“As a recruiter, I've raised the bar as to how successful international relocators can be in new markets. After moving from London to New York in 2019 to cover in-house tax recruitment on the West Coast, I now lead the Tax recruiting team nationally, having been promoted from Senior Consultant to Director in just 14 months.”
