Senior Talent Manager

LinkedIn Profile

As Talent Manager on the Marketing and Digital team I am responsible for sourcing marketing and customer talent across a range of disciplines from broad Marketing and Brand Management, to niche roles such as CRM and Email Marketing, to eCommerce and Product Marketing.

To date I have worked across many industries from telecommunications and banking to FMCG and travel/leisure. More recently however I focused on customer centric marketing within the Retail sector in a top marketing agency in London. Speed to market was essential as was having a great knowledge of the market and available marketers. Some recent assignments included Senior Category Manager (FMCG), Account Manager (Agency) and Senior Marketing Manager (Retail).

I have a Masters in Marketing from DCU, after which time I worked in industry focusing on market research. I moved into talent management and recruitment with Alternatives in 2010 and enjoyed working across a wide range of sectors, marketing disciplines and levels. A move to London followed where I worked with a similar boutique marketing recruitment agency. Having moved back to Ireland recently I am glad to say I am back at home with Alternatives, working with my lovely colleagues and clients once again!

What you say

"I've undertaken a number of roles via Alternatives Marketing Talent Agency and have worked with a number of different business managers through various agencies in the past…Truly, I couldn't rate Kristin highly enough. She placed me in my current position and I'm extremely grateful for the constant diligence, attention, insight and foresight she has shown throughout the process.

Kristin demonstrates a genuine understanding of the business world, how to leverage commercial opportunities whilst always keeping the people at the centre of the organisation in mind and how to make the right decisions at the right time. She exudes a very calm, capable and gracefully confident manner that puts everyone around her immediately at ease. She is - as they say - a people person - who can connect with all kinds of people from all kinds of industries and that talent is one that I've witnessed on many occasions.
