The Serious Bit

As a Lead Consultant, Jackie heads up the Professional and Business Services team. She specialises in senior appointments, and you can read more about our approach to Senior Appointments here. Jackie job shares with Moira Pierce, who works on Fridays.

With almost twenty years in marketing, from PR to advertising and into strategic marketing for the services industries, Jackie gained the Chartered Institute of Marketing Diploma and an MBA en route. Her experience is almost entirely B2B, touching on nearly every aspect of marketing and making her a true expert in the field.

Following on from a five year foray into teaching, Jackie made her return to the marketing arena in 2011 to specialise in recruiting marketers into the professional services industries at Stopgap.

The Fun Bit

When I was little I wanted to be...

… a teacher because I absolutely loved school (how weird am I?) and I loved learning and still do!

The most daring thing I've ever done is...

…hot air ballooning, abseiling down a sports centre, walking the Yorkshire Dales, black ski runs…and teaching, of course!

In my spare time you can find me...

…always skiing, often sailing, and sometimes running. I love my bike, adore the theatre, and don’t read as much as I’d like to – there are so many wonderful books out there. 

If I were a brand, I would be...

…Penguin books because they’re strong, distinctive and a continually evolving brand that has lasted through many, many years despite considerable corporate change - they have also published some of my favourite books.

Jackie really knows her business. I felt I was working with someone who listened and gave great, tailored advice. On her guidance, I updated my CV, and with her support I had confident, informed interviews with a company where I feel I'm a great fit and they think so too as they've offered me a role that is permanent. She has worked magic where I thought it was not going to happen. I can't recommend her highly enough. 

I was really impressed with the quality of candidates you submitted and with your service -  I felt like you really understood our brief and our context and the kind of person fit that we were looking for. We will certainly call on you for future recruitment needs - things don’t stand still here for long!

Just a quick note to thank you ever so much for the yummy chocolates you sent over – a very pleasant, unexpected surprise! My first week has gone really well, everyone here is extremely friendly and welcoming and the role seems like a great fit for me. Thanks for everything

Thank you all for the efforts that you all put into finding a role that suited me. You were all so supportive and helpful. I must say that Stopgap, as a whole, has been leaps and bounds ahead of most of the other recruitment agencies that I worked with, so well done you! 

I have worked with Jackie for about 3 years in relation to our marketing recruitment and would have no hesitation in recommending her. She has always been a pleasure to work with – very personable and keen to understand our requirements well so that she can source candidates who best fit our roles and also our environment/culture. Jackie is thorough and diligent and also very good at keeping in touch with me both during specific recruitment assignments and also more generally. Jackie has placed two members of our current Marketing team over the past 2 years.
