Jen is our Senior Recruiter in Science, Technology and Innovation here at Aspire Cambridge.
Jen is responsible for driving our niche, global sectors and enjoys working with technically minded people through to world-class innovators and professors.
Outside of work Jen leads a very active social life and enjoys athletics; from competing to pleasure in running, crossFit and weight lifting. She is also a proud ambassador and on the operations team for Virgin London Marathon and Vitality Big Half. Here, Jen is proud to support elite runners like Eliud Kipchoge and Brigid Kosgei as well as wheelchair athletes such as David Weir. She also gets to brush shoulders with the celebrity runners including looking after Katie Price after she famously dropped out during the early stages a couple of years ago.
As if this didn’t fill her days alongside the demanding role as a world-class recruiter, she is also a frequent traveller. Yes, you heard us… 32 places visited in under four years (well three and a half if you count our period of lockdown!).
We couldn’t introduce Jen without recognition to Daisy. Daisy is Jen’s adorable black cat who recently adopted her on a more permanent basis as her owners moved away. Daisy has a habit of attracting the male kind. Here we introduce “Imposter”; Imposter regularly frequents Jen and Daisy’s home and has been known to often stay the night! 😸
