Olivia has spent the last twelve years recruiting HR & Change professionals and now focuses at the senior end of the market, searching for HR leaders and their teams. She spends every day networking within the international HR marketplace, and draws her energy from honing her knowledge of the wide-ranging skills, capabilities, and priorities within the ever-changing landscape of Human Resources. Key to her success is the unrivalled network of HR professionals which she and the Tucker Stone team have nurtured and grown over the years, and which gives them the best opportunity to find the right person for each of their clients. She is engaged and stimulated by the challenge that every one of her searches is unique.
Olivia has championed the role that Tucker Stone plays in the HR search space – as a valued and challenging partner to clients, and a loyal and proactive advocate of their candidates. All of Tucker Stone’s work comes from referrals from within their network, and that is something that Olivia is most proud of. She also embraces the fact that Tucker Stone is called upon when there is a critical need for their search service. The reasons vary but it is frequently because of a highly confidential search, a rare set of skills, a reputational challenge, or the need for an agile, fast-paced approach.
Life before setting up Tucker Stone involved reading English at Magdalene College, Cambridge. After graduating, Olivia worked at BBC Worldwide, before being persuaded to join OrtusHR, where she met Hugo Tucker, and was bitten by the HR recruitment bug and her fate was sealed.
Olivia lives in Suffolk with her husband, Adam, an archaeologist, and their two children, Florence & Theo, and their dog, Juno.
