"I was seeking opportunities beyond academia, searching for ways to make contributions to productive and meaningful research projects which could have real impact on people's lives. I was immediately attracted to Hunter Healthcare's expanding Executive Search practice, developing recruitment through an intimate attention to detail and striving for change in the healthcare market place. I was also struck by a focus on people and relationships and also the strong emphasis for personal and professional development.
"Above all, I was excited by the opportunity to play a role in Hunter's continued growth and contribute towards the realisation of the company's innovative strategic visions. Hunter is a unique company with an inimitable array of highly skilled people, who are each deeply passionate about what they do and it is a privilege to work alongside them."
