Meet the Team
It's Lovely to Meet You!
Managing Director and Co-Founder
Juliet Co-founder of the business started her career in recruitment and training in the 1990’s following her completion of the Diploma in Management at De Montfort university, she also attained her Certificate in Professional Recruitment with the Royal Holloway University during her time at Reed Accountancy.
Post working with Reed and Abacus, Juliet was asked to attain funding for training companies to assist others back to work, she successfully assisted many companies to gain this funding and grow.
She then took a few years to assist her elderly and ill parents in Devon but during that time she also helped establish a new team of recruitment professionals at Age UK where she successfully worked with stakeholders to significantly reduce recruitment costs and build an established professional internal team.
During this time Juliet was being approached daily to recommence her work in recruitment and training being contacted daily by professionals she had worked with and that this points she returned to this field of work.
More recently with Covid-19 it became evident working with her Senior Management Team and previous clients that there was a significant need to assist professionals who had never been in these redundancy and furlough situations and whose changing mind sets required greater assistance with CV writing, networking and transferring of relevant skills, therefore Voncap Career Consultancy was started.
