I have spent 30 years now running Property Personnel and I am extremely proud of the high standards that we set every day, and also of the reputation we have built over the years for honesty and integrity. As a recruitment consultancy, we are only as good as the team working here and I firmly believe ours is among the best in this industry.
As a team, we have worked together at Property Personnel for well over half a century, and I strongly believe that this demonstrates we are as serious about our careers as we are about yours!
With Property Personnel continuing to go from strength to strength we have ambitious plans to grow the business organically and to raise the standards within the industry. As a consequence we are constantly re-evaluating our services to continue this development.
On a personal note, I have been married for nearly 25 years and have three grown up sons. My boys and I are all Portsmouth FC season ticket holders, following Pompey home and away. My other passions include skiing, mountain biking, hill walking and sea fishing.
Allison commenced her career in estate agency on the Isle of Wight before moving to London in the late 90’s, joining one of central London’s leading estate agents as a Lettings Negotiator in their Knightsbridge office. She also worked in their Mayfair office before being promoted to assist in the opening of a new office in 2000.
Allison commenced her employment with Property Personnel in early 2001 where she was given the sole responsibility of their Lettings & Management division. Breaking all departmental records along the way, Allison and her team continue to take this division to new heights.
Allison started a family in 2010, but couldn’t keep away from Property Personnel Towers, returning to work after 3 months. Having now had two sons, Allison continues to work closely with the Property Personnel team. Outside of work she continues to play badminton for a local league, as well as Berkshire County. Whilst fitting in her boys’ activities and interests as a family, they are also actively involved with their local golf club.
Having dedicated 16 years of her working life to Property Personnel, Allison’s loyalty, along with her consistently high performance level, was rewarded in January 2015 with a well-deserved promotion to Director level.
Georgina joined the Lettings & Management Division of Property Personnel in 2011. She graduated from the University of Sussex with a degree in Media and Cultural Studies, and has since worked within the hospitality industry. Having decided that this was not the career path for her, Georgina decided to focus on a career in Recruitment.
Georgina loves dealing with people and thrives in a challenging environment. She is very competitive, and her strengths are her communication and time management skills. She particularly enjoys the variety involved in meeting new people, and in building a lasting relationship with them.
In March 2016, Georgina and her husband Sam (an estate agent!) had a beautiful baby daughter called Isla who now keeps them both incredibly busy. On the rare occasions that she has any spare time, Georgina loves socialising with friends and shopping!
Having returned to work following her maternity leave, Georgina settled back into her role seamlessly, and in January 2017 was rewarded for her achievements and her loyalty with promotion to Associate level.
Maddie lived abroad on the Mediterranean island of Cyprus until the beginning of 2017. It was in Cyprus where Maddie started her first job in recruitment and quickly discovered that she wanted to start a career in this industry. Maddie loves the variety the job offers, as well as working with people, and thoroughly enjoys being busy. Maddie did also gain experience in Financial Services working in a customer service role, although she quickly realised that this was not the right path for her.
Although Maddie enjoyed living in such a relaxing country, she did start to crave the hustle and bustle of the UK which led her to make the decision to move back. Maddie arrived back at the beginning of 2017 and started working as the Office Manager here at Property Personnel, one of the UK’s leading specialist recruitment agencies.
In December 2015 Charlotte left her job in the airline industry to travel and experience working abroad. Having spent 4 months travelling around South East Asia, Charlotte flew to Australia where she based herself for the following 2 years. During her time ‘down under’ Charlotte lived in two major cities, Sydney and Melbourne, where she worked in both hospitality and telephone sales. Whilst she enjoyed both roles, neither were a career choice she wanted to pursue back in the UK.
Having enjoyed the experience of working with customers and clients in various industries, Charlotte identified that recruitment would be a great profession to work within, and she is now enjoying utilising her previously developed skills in her new career with Property Personnel.
Gemma previously worked for a technology recruitment company in Central London, but she decided that the sector was not for her. Having not been put off the profession, Gemma decided to further her recruitment career in the estate agency field with us at Property Property.
Before this, Gemma started up her own garden design and maintenance business, Garden Gems. With her passion for planting design she helped create a floral marquee stand at the Chelsea Flower Show in 2016, where she appeared on TV and in magazines.
Outside of work, Gemma spends much of her spare time playing hockey. Having played the sport since the age of 8, she currently plays for Staines Hockey Club. She has also represented South of England and played in the National West Conference. Most evenings, Gemma can be seen dashing out of the office to get to training or matches after work.
Gemma is very much looking forward to building a successful career with Property Personnel and within the recruitment industry.
