She was born in New Zealand and grew up in Ireland where she studied her law degree at the National University of Ireland in Galway before moving to Sydney in 2010.
She began her recruiting career at a leading global recruitment company, where she was instrumental in the growth of its Australian legal arm, managing a successful team for four years.
With over 9 years in the industry she is regarded as one of the go-to legal recruiters in Australia. She works closely with key personnel at a range of national and international commercial law firms across Australia.
Outside of work, Laura loves to travel and try out new restaurants (one of her favourite weekend delights). She is a keen exerciser and typically has a running, cycling or swimming event in the calendar.
Laura was an absolute delight to work with and I cannot recommend her enough.
I wasn’t looking for a job change when Laura first reached out, however, after a brief meeting with her and discussing my career aspirations, it became clear that she was honest, diligent and was looking out for my best interests. She has provided on-going support by ensuring I am happy in my new role and providing advice when required.
She is personable, knowledgeable and takes the time to understand her client’s needs and aspirations. I would highly recommend Laura to anyone considering a change.
