Areas of expertise: 

Jo started her career in recruitment after graduating from the University of Bristol.

In her first role, she was the temps consultant for the accountancy and finance sector, before being promoted to perm recruitment.

Her friendly and knowledgeable approach made her stand out in a highly competitive industry; she was tasked by one her clients to set up an accountancy recruitment agency in Bristol, which she ran successfully for eight years. She then expanded her experience further by working for a large regional agency in Bristol.

After the birth of her son, Jo relocated to Exeter and continued to work in the same sector for independent recruitment agencies. When the opportunity came up to join forces with Lisa and Katie, she jumped at the chance to become a Director and work with the rich variety of businesses in the West Country. 

Jo’s recruitment style is transparent and thorough; our candidates and clients value her due diligence. 

Outside of work, Jo is a keen Latin ballroom dancer. She’s also an accomplished flute player, and has performed at weddings and events. Her favourite meal is a steak and salad, accompanied by a nice bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon. At the weekends, Jo can be found on a Cornish beach with her son enjoying chocolate ice cream.

Jo took the time to fully understand the finance roles that we were recruiting for, as well as the needs and culture of the department and business.  Jo submitted two candidates in total for the two roles; I questioned if there were more to come but Jo advised advised me that these two candidates were perfect – and she was right in every way.  Both candidates were the best we interviewed and have now joined our finance team. The follow-up service has also been excellent – Isca Recruitment clearly cares about both clients and candidates.”
