About Me

Careena joined 1st Step in 2004 as a trainee M&E recruitment consultant within the first few weeks of trading,  Mentored by Max White our former MD, Careena progressed to the position of Director whilst managing the M&E London and South Trades division until 2016.

Having been one of the six directors that came together to complete the acquisition of 1st Step in 2022 Careena now focuses on all things compliance and operational, ensuring that the ever changing landscape of recruitment compliance is navigated, whilst standards are upheld and that 1st Step remains ahead of the curve embracing new technologies.

When Careena looks up from her IR35 guidance,  she thoroughly enjoys leisurely strolls with her four legged companion, lunches and brunches (normally of the bottomless variety) and getting away from it all on a beach getaway or city break.
