Ruth Hayes, the Director of Felix Consulting.

I have always taken an active interest in people and this is reflected in my work as an executive recruiter and career coach. Both roles are a vocation for me. I love helping organisations in the For-Purpose sector recruit great leaders as much as I love helping people move forward in their careers. I enjoy growing the strong partnerships with my clients that allow us to work together to deliver great outcomes. I also stay up to date with high quality professional development, building on foundational qualifications including a Master of Applied Science in Coaching Psychology and a Graduate Certificate in Career Development.
