As a Co-founder and Director of ISE Partners, Susannah, has over the years, developed a specialist network of leaders, founders and senior hiring professionals within the investment sector, for whom she has provided an often unrivalled recruitment service. Understanding the demands of delivering within this high-expectation industry, has made Susannah one of the leading figures to partner with to receive a reliable and tailored recruitment service. Having launched her recruitment career in a leading City-based office support recruitment firm finding top-tier support staff for Investment Banking clients, she found her passion for the Investment industry, and moved to a larger Banking and Finance recruitment business, gaining more exposure to City institutions. Inspired to continue operating in the investment sector, but in a more tailored style, she co-founded ISE Partners in 2007.

Since then, Susannah has honed her expertise in placing exceptional Senior Assistants and EAs within investment banking, private equity and hedge fund businesses. Additionally, she has carved out a niche in the discreet and tactful placement of Private Assistants for Ultra-High-Net-Worth Individuals and Family Offices.

Fuelling Susannah's success is a genuine passion for creating and nurturing strong, meaningful relationships with both her candidates and clients. She takes immense pride in ensuring the recruitment process is not just efficient, but also a positive, enriching journey for everyone involved with ISE Partners.
