Jessica’s enormously successful career as an Assistant spanned just over a decade. During that time, Jessica supported prominent employers within various industries, including investment banks, hedge funds, retail and residential property and high-profile individuals throughout the UK and Asia.
Jessica understands that superb operational support has the capacity to transform a business’s bottom line. As a highly experienced Assistant, Jessica grew frustrated with the restrictive service provided by traditional secretarial recruitment agencies and shocked at the lack of understanding of the nature of her role. As a result, Jessica founded Sidekicks in 2015.
Jessica has been an Affiliate Member of the Institute of Recruitment Professionals (IRP) since 2015, and writes about current employment issues in her column for the Huffington Post.
