Associate Director, Creative/Account Handling

Laura has been at Blue Skies since 2009, always recruiting within the creative and agency space and is now proud to head up the Creative and Agency teams – consisting of creative, account handling and PR. She also still specialises herself, in senior level creative recruitment, with a focus across the West Midlands, Nottingham, Derbyshire and Gloucestershire. This spans Senior Designer and Artworker level roles, through to Production and up to Executive Creative Director level, across both client-side and agency.

When not at work, Laura likes to spend quality time with her young daughter and partner or in the great British outdoors, walking her beloved border terrier. Other interests include socialising with friends, various exercise classes and travelling the World, exploring different cultures. Countries visited so far include Australia, India, China and Fiji.


Big prize to Eagle Eye Mercer for spotting and delivering a candidate that was right for us in every way. It only took one go and she delivered bang on. Unbelievably refreshing amongst the competition, she passionately understands our company’s needs and when my time is so limited that makes me happy.

I have found three jobs through Blue Skies and none through other recruiters. They are always there when needed and Laura is happy to talk about the roles with honesty.
