Role: UK Technology Country Director, Manchester
Jo embarked on her recruitment career in 2007. In 2012, Jo joined Gravitas, having worked with the founding team in her previous role, it was an easy decision to make and she believes it kick-started an accelerated career path throwing up a multitude of highlights from winning Top Biller, Top Manager, Top Team to opening the Manchester Office and being promoted to Associate Director.
In July 2023, Jo was promoted to UK Country Director for Tech. In her role, sh looks after the Manchester, Leeds and London offices. Central to her activities is her commitment to the development of leaders within the organisation. Recognising the unparalleled tenure and experience of the Gravitas UK Leadership Team, she is determined to transform this strength into a decisive competitive advantage.
Jo’s passion for the recruitment industry is unwavering, stemming from its transformative power to change lives. As a young graduate, she was captivated by the idea that merit and hard work were the cornerstones of success in this field. Jo finds those two things as true today as they were 16 years ago - as the industry continues to evolve and offer even greater diversity, opportunities, and rewards.
Having had a little boy recently - Jo’s new favourite thing to do is sleep and also watch her gorgeous little man develop and grow into what has to be the smelliest baby ever! The 'Old Jo' loved a good spa weekend and settling down with a good book (and still holds out hope that might happen again one day!)
