"I was approached by Lucy Burrows, who was hands down the most genuine recruiter I've been contacted by while I've been looking for my next role. She didn't sound like she was speaking from a script, she listened and responded thoughtfully and asked my opinions throughout the process. Great work Lucy!"
M, Dryborough, Candidate
In this section
Lucy joined Aaron Wallis in early 2022 after a year as a resourcer as she wanted the opportunity to take charge of the recruitment process from start to completion. Before this, Lucy ran her own
business providing homemade personalised cakes to giftware firms. With a steely and stealthy competitive edge and high self-motivation levels, Lucy has rapidly become a star consultant with
clients that adore her honest and straightforward project delivery approach.
With Equine Rehabilitation and Horsecare qualifications, Lucy loves the countryside. At the weekend, she will be found walking her dog, hiking peaks and looking after her horse, Temple Ossie.
In addition, Lucy is by far the most incredible baker and cake maker at Aaron Wallis.
