Gemma BouldingMD of People Factor Recruitment

Gemma is the Managing Director of our recruitment arm, People Factor Recruitment, established in 2021.

A recruitment specialist for more than a decade, she brings a wealth of diverse experience from her time in both in-house consultancy and high street agencies. In fact, her success ratios for placing people are pretty high: whilst working in-house, every 5 in 6 candidates she put forward were offered the job, and every 2 in 3 when she was in high street recruitment. Long may that continue for our TPF Recruitment clients!

Gemma acts as the single contact throughout the entire process to guarantee continuity, as well as being the quality control behind successful placements: industry insight into what’s needed and actually works from a business perspective; unrelenting emphasis on quality over quantity; a refusal to play a numbers game (and saying no if needed); and representing clients and candidates equally to ensure it’s the right fit for both parties – and investing the time to recognise that.
