My Bio

As part of our Permanent Social Care division, Laura recruits for both adults and children’s social care staff covering all areas across the UK.

Background Story

Originally from Liverpool and having just graduated from University with a 1st class BSc (Hons) Psychology degree, I have moved down “south” to Reading! I chose to relocate to Reading as it was a great way for me to broaden my career prospects as there were many opportunities to consider, especially in the Recruitment Sector.

Biggest Achievement

I studied Psychology at University which is something I really enjoyed as I have always been interested in people and how the mind works. I graduated with a 1st class honours which is something I am really proud of. In addition, I achieved a 1st for my third-year dissertation project, which has been put forward by my professor to the board of academics to be considered for publishing.

Why Charles Hunter Associates?

Charles Hunter Associates was the career choice for me as this company has many opportunities to progress. From studying Psychology at University, I was drawn to them as they specialise in social care and social work.
