Jo Cook

I joined Cactus Search in May 2008 and the past 8 years have flown by. I have just over 10 years recruitment experience altogether and having worked in High-street recruitment for a short stint I interviewed with Cactus and loved the culture and opportunity to work for a truly credible brand.

My passion is building relationships with my partners and candidates alike, which over the years has proven invaluable. I love that every day is different at Cactus and we have an amazing team! I would describe our team as a family (very corny I know!!!) Lots of laughter & support which gets us all through challenging times. Out of work I'm a step-mom to two amazing girls and my husband and I love nothing more than spending time together and walking our crazy Springer Spaniel. I'm also a keen runner and ran the Edinburgh Marathon (2016) and raised £2000 for two incredible charities. It was a great achievement and running with my two brothers was incredibly memorable.

I'm officially part of the furniture here and look forward to what the future brings!
