Meet Carole

Carole Hepburn

Northern Wisdom is run by Carole Hepburn who has 25 years’ experience at the sharp end of recruitment.

She is the former Global Director of Permanent Recruitment for Adecco, Board Director of Adecco UK and Ireland, and Operations Director for Healthcare Locums. Not bad for somebody who started as a graduate trainee and spent the first 3 years of her career struggling with the whole concept of how to do recruitment well.

Though her own personal battle to become a top biller, to her journey through team leadership onto Senior Management and Global board positions, Carole brings insight and credibility based on actual experience. She is a regular speaker at recruitment events such as Expo, Global Recruiter Conference, Online Recruiter Conference and APSCo
