Anna has been recruiting since 2008 and has always been heavily involved in the not-for-profit sector, including time as a fundraiser.

She specialises in recruiting fundraisers from assistant to director level and has more LinkedIn recommendations than you can shake a large stick at!

An active fundraiser on behalf of several charities and some of her clients, raising thousands for good causes over the years. When she isn’t doing that, Anna enjoys being captain of her netball team and looks forward to seeing her 90 year old friends, Betty and Kathy at the Contact The Elderly tea parties once a month.

"Anna has been a real pleasure to deal with in placing me in a new role. She is incredibly personable, responsive and more than happy to help and offer advice. She has gone above and beyond in make sure that I have had everything I need throughout the whole process - from applying right up to starting in the new role."

"Anna is a great listener and a very intuitive consultant. In the past, I’ve had recruiters constantly call and send me job descriptions for roles and causes I’ve made it clear are not for me. Anna is very sharp and quickly understood what I was looking for and has a very strong understanding of what major donor fundraising involves and it was no surprise to learn she has a background in the frontlines of fundraising.
