About Sharri Plimbley
I have worked in the Scottish Legal recruitment market since 1998, after returning from Hong Kong where I started my career in investment banking recruitment. Over that time I have worked with all sizes of private practice law firms from sole practitioner to large international and have also extensively recruited for in-house legal teams in commerce and industry, local authorities, government and quasi government organisations. I have predominantly recruited and assisted qualified solicitors from newly qualified stage up to Partner level and Paralegals. Since setting up on my own, I now offer a complete recruitment service to my clients with the ability to source any position within their firm or team.
Outside of work my husband and 3 kids keep me busy and the addition of our pet westie Mac to the team this Xmas brings us all together. I got the running bug a few years back and ran my first marathon in the summer of 2015, an amazing achievement for me, apart from that I love the outdoor life and family and good friends keep me sane.
So why have I decided to set up my own recruitment firm now, well having been in the business for almost 20 years, I’ve got to know alot of people and have lots of connections. I believe nowadays, within the professional markets in particular, it’s the person you deal with and the service you get, as opposed to the size of the company that makes the difference. I also like to pride myself on offering everyone I deal with a personal service. The biggest criticism I hear when people work with an agency is ‘they never got back to me’. I make a special effort not to be the norm and manage my clients and candidates expectations as much as I can. I also want to work with people who want to work with me. I offer a professional, knowledgeable and honest recruitment service for both my clients and candidates and as such repeat business and referral is a high percentage of my work.
I’m very approachable, so get in touch to find out if I can help you with your next move or next hire.
If you like what you have read or have heard about SP Associates on the market and are looking to make a move from your current recruitment role then give me a call. There’s no harm in a chat to find out what it may lead to.
