In that time Cooper has grown the business from an SME to a medium-sized enterprise, developed an outstanding leadership team and built the organisation’s brand and reputation as the trusted public services recruiter.

More recently, Cooper has been shortlisted as Recruiter’s Recruitment Leader of the Year with her organisation shortlisted for 5 Awards at the 2016 Recruiter Awards for Excellence.
