Gabby Symons

Managing Director

Buzzing around in the retail recruitment industry at a million miles an hour since 2000, it’s no surprise that Gabby was a passionate runner. Now a yoga convert; Gabby’s mindful, trusting and passionate leadership of People Equity is what keeps her team inspired every day of the week. She makes it her business to provide them with bucketloads of energy, positivity, support and flexibility so that they can be peak performers. These qualities naturally flow through to her relationships with clients and candidates where she is committed to delivering well beyond their expectations every time. Let’s face it: Gabby’s got raving fans everywhere she looks. Her vice: Chocolate - Haighs or Cadbury, she’s not fussed.

“Working with Gabby and her team was by far the best experience I have had working with an external recruiting firm - we all truly considered them an extension of our team. We would have NEVER achieved such a daunting talent acquisition strategy without this level of partnership. As an HR executive, I have worked with my fair share of recruiting firms. I cannot recommend People Equity highly enough - they are by far and hands-down, the best in the business”

Chief People Officer, Major Retail Brand
