Marie has almost 15 years’ experience in the Recruitment & Talent Acquisition sectors with a further 10 in Sales & Marketing within the Hotels & Aviation industries.

The main tale.

Growing up in Mauritius, Marie describes her childhood as beautiful, stating “we didn’t have much but when I look back at it, it certainly didn’t feel like at that time.”

It was part of this childhood that she credits as a defining moment of her life, where after her father was made redundant & she saw the struggle her family was going through she decided then & there she would never sit back & watch, but help wherever she could – including travelling by herself at the age of 15 to town to sell Christmas merchandise on the street to ensure her family was okay. She describes it as “a terrifying experience, it was desperation, but I was determined to make it work.” From then on, she knew that whatever life threw at her, she would be okay.

This determination to help & resolve to be successful has carried through her career & forms much of her philosophy towards recruitment. She enjoys “finding the diamond in the rough and making sure that it has all it needs to keep shining,” and balancing the need to be of service to both candidates & clients to see all the hard work come together like a puzzle.

In a nutshell she believes good recruitment is about “adding value, creating partnerships, challenging the status quo, and doing the right thing by each other.” Her ultimate goal is to provide a holistic recruitment and retention offering, where clients can come to me for recruitment as well as strategy and advice on hiring, retention, equality and diversity initiatives.
