About Ciara

Ciara joined the Founding Team at GS2 in 2023 after nearly four years in a Delivery Consultant role in central London. 

Ciara comes with great experience and is able to apply this in order to help find and support the best purpose driven recruiters to join and succeed within GS2, along with supporting clients within our interim and contract practice.

When Ciara was younger she loved tractors (John Deere's specifically) and wanted to marry a farmer, fortunately for her husband, she changed her mind and they now live in Farnborough with their Labrador, Poncho and daughter, who is full of sass!

At school Ciara loved learning French and now speaks the language fluently following living in Toulouse for two years, along with learning Italian at University.  

When Ciara’s not out scuba diving or parenting at the weekend she can be found working in her garden.
