Angela Cripps is currently Chair of the Midlands region of The Recruitment Society helping to organise local events and presentations. Angela has worked within the recruitment industry for nearly 25 years. Her career started as a recruitment consultant, where she recruited both temporary and permanent staff for Blue Arrow in Catering, Industrial, Health Care and Commercial sectors.
After managing their Maidstone branch for four years (increasing turnover from £150k to £3.3million in 18 months), she then fulfilled her ambition of becoming a training consultant. She joined their award winning training team in January 1998, which achieved two National Training Awards.
In the last 10 years, Angela has worked in-house with over 100 SMEs, helping them to achieve their key objectives through the development of their staff – from back office to Directors. Her focus for The Recruitment Society is to bring together all involved in the recruitment process and share information and ideas in a friendly relaxed environment, that benefits all. When not working to better recruitment, Angela is an animal lover and can be found in the Derbyshire Dales walking her dogs or you may spot her anywhere in the UK on the back of a vintage scooter!
