Ruth is a personnel recruiter for Exceed.
Her professional life has its beginnings rooted in South Africa, where Ruth worked as a PA and later qualified as a beauty therapist. Here, she ran her own business successfully. Afterwards, becoming a wife and mum, Ruth yearned for a fresh challenge and new direction.
At this point Ruth immigrated to the UK with her family, returned to studying psychology as a mature student, gaining a single honours degree. A year later, she achieved a post graduate degree in Education. All this achieved whilst juggling family life, keeping her sense of humour and running the home.
After an extended period in education, as a senior teacher and member of the Senior Leadership team, Ruth went on to supporting trainee teachers, as an assessor for Edgehill University.
A couple of years later, Ruth changed direction completely and after a chat with Andre Vermeulen (director) and assessing her own needs and priorities, decided to become a recruiter for Exceed Best People. Having worked in both the commercial and education environment, Ruth is best placed to coach and match candidates to suitable opportunities, having developed and led her own teams for many years.
