        Welcome Stephanie Ricks

        Stephanie joins Allen Lane with almost 5 years local government recruitment experience under her belt previously servicing the housing options, revenues and benefits market.

        We’re thrilled to welcome Stephanie Ricks to Allen Lane.

        Stephanie is a part of Philippa Watkins‘ Local Government team and, as Senior Consultant, she will be supporting career and recruitment needs for interim finance professionals within local government.

        Luckily for us, Stephanie traded in a potential career in law for recruitment where, after completing a Law degree at Portsmouth University, and deciding it wasn’t the career path for her, she embarked on the magical journey into recruitment in September 2019, and hasn’t looked back.

        We asked Stephanie a few questions to give you some insights into the person behind the recruiter.

        Here’s what she had to say.

        What made you join Allen Lane?

        Allen Lane being a strong, established name in the industry and having a great reputation. I had come across their name, despite not working previously in the finance industry, however they always came up as one of the market leaders within the Finance industry.

        The culture also fitted what I was looking for. A company that allows you to be independent whilst also offering you the platform and the tools to progress in your career.

        What are you most looking forward to in your new role?

        Being surrounded by people that are experts in their field, who I can learn from and who can help me progress in my career and become a more well rounded recruiter. Also learning a new industry and speaking and meeting with new people.

        Fun facts about you

        • I’m not a fan of swimming, however my favourite holiday memory is swimming with whale sharks in Mexico.
        • I’m currently trying to complete 30 countries before 30, so I’m trying to book as many holidays as possible over the next few years.

        What do you like to do in your spare time?

        In my spare time I can generally be found taste testing the never-ending list of TikTok recommended restaurants across London. If I’m not exploring the sights of London, then I can usually be found catching a flight to escape the gloomy weather of London.

        Currently I’m trying to complete ‘30 countries before age 30’, giving me an excuse to increase the number of trips I make.
