The daughter of entrepreneurs, Jo Mortimer is the second generation of Angela Mortimer PLC, the international recruitment consultancy founded in 1976. Her first class degree in Experimental Psychology from Cambridge has been the foundation of her success in her professional life and her interests, with a passion for personal development at the core of all she does. Having thrived as a teacher in her early career, she has risen to the top of her company via the graduate trainee route and proven her leadership. Jo now leads a highly successful division within the company, specializing in placing board level executive assistants across a wide range of industries.
When not recruiting, Jo performs as a folk singer, has run community choirs and entices many to balance their lives via her teaching of Tai Chi – maintaining balance and developing self-awareness being essential to the success of her clients, her candidates and of course herself. Understanding what ‘best’ is and not settling for ‘OK’ remains her goal for candidates and clients alike.
