Having heard David speak at an ISA conference and feeling there was synergy with their ideas and scope for a recruitment platform, Monika hunted him down (he’d only got as far as the coffee table) and plans for collaboration and forming Ed.Careers, the jobs board of the Portal, took shape with her joining the team soon after.
Monika read Law at Birmingham University and has spent the last 12 years working in education. From starting out sending supply teachers to primary schools in Greenwich, she has since headed the independent and international schools consultancy division of the TES, worked for a leadership consultancy firm advising school Boards on senior appointments, recruitment, marketing and strategy and worked independently with schools and investors on both domestic and international start up, buy out and expansion projects. Because of this, her knowledge of and network in the sector is vast.
Whilst Monika finds David’s jokes lame, she does enjoy vetoing his occasional off the wall ideas!
Outside of work, Monika’s passion is food and she is studying Nutrition with a view to specialise in nutrition and child development.
