Gemma is an integral part of our growing Legal division, she works with clients in Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire.

What is your background?

In my last role I worked as a Fitness Instructor at a local gym, helping to teach classes to support members with their fitness goals and assisting with the development of the company. So you could say I have a mix of customer service and sales.

How long have your worked at Kirkland Associates?

I joined Kirkland Associates in November 2016 so I have been with the team for 2 years, with many more to come.

What is the best thing about your job?

It’s definitely when you get a job offer from a client to a candidate you have been working with. It’s the best feeling in the world when you know you have helped someone find their dream job!

What is the first job you ever had?

I started my first job at the age of 18 as a barmaid at Revolution clubs. It was fun at the time, but I certainly couldn’t cope with the late nights now.

If you could pick your last meal, what would it be?

It would have to be a Roast Dinner with all the trimmings and an Apple crumble with custard for dessert.

Where is your favourite place in the world?

Definitely Florida, although I’m sure if I got the chance to go to New York my decision would change.

What is your guilty pleasure?

Drinking orange juice straight from the carton.
