David Johnston – Director

About me:  I’ve had over fifteen years’ experience within recruitment with over a decade of that spent at Handle. Over that time, I’ve been able to build significant relationships with many of the key HR contacts within the media and entertainment sector.

An interesting fact: I worked on a project in house at Sony Music across all business areas to facilitate internal recruitment processes.

Best Christmas present: An Easter trip to Paris.

Worst Christmas Present: None! I had a very specific list.

Amanda Manning - Management Consultant 

About me: I began my professional career as a Dental Nurse and Radiographer in Leeds before relocating to Sydney. Back in the UK, I decided on a complete career change and have been recruiting HR professionals for six years.

An interesting fact:  As an avid cyclist, I commute by bike 25 miles a day and am hoping to do the London to Barcelona ride for charity in the summer.

Best Christmas present:  My iPad!  A complete surprise and makes me feel like a giant when I go to use my iPhone straight after!

Worst Christmas Present:  A red and white spotty wool hat… It makes me look like Noddy.

Stephanie Goldfinch - Recruitment Consultant 

About Me: After successfully completing a Graduate Recruitment scheme in 2010 and supporting the set up of a commercial HR desk, I joined Handle to combine my interest in HR with my passion for the music, entertainment, media and retail industries.

An interesting fact:  This year’s New Year’s Resolution is to do a Sky Dive.

Best Christmas Present:  The Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook.

Worst Christmas Present:  Earrings – I don’t have my ears pierced!
