In 2013, after helping FE Colleges with their online recruitment strategies for nearly a decade, Sharron joined forces with Richard Lawes to launch onlyFE. Their joint expertise was the stuff of legends. Their mission, which they chose to accept: to give FE colleges a simple and sensible solution to their recruitment needs.
Prior to working in the FE sector, Sharron had a successful career that spanned pharmaceutical, niche market publishing, and advertising industries. Get her.
Richard has worked in digital recruitment for UK FE colleges since 2008. When he and Sharron launched onlyFE in 2013 he was determined to start and remain as one of the worker bees of the onlyFE hive. That’s why you are always guaranteed Richard and/or Sharron’s personal management of each campaign.
Rachel is the newest member of the onlyFE family having joined in early 2016 alongside her studies to become a personal trainer. Her varied recruitment career spans almost 15 years and has covered IT/telecoms, legal, HR and more recently (and incredibly usefully for us) education.
Since graduating from Cardiff University in 2012, Claudia has worked in digital marketing and PR for a number of small agencies and independent clients. She joined the onlyFE team early in 2015 and is the proud voice of the onlyFE brand. You have Claudia to thank for the blog, the ‘Best of the Blog’ monthly email, and more social media marketing than you can shake a stick at.
Sharron adopted Amber from the amazing Pound Puppy Rescue – which survives solely on donations (hint hint).
She’s a Border Collie cross, who had a tough start in life, but is now settling well into the onlyFE ways and is becoming a pretty hard task master.
Amber & Rosie are getting to know each other nicely and bonding over their shared love of Squirrels.
Rosie is onlyFE’s youngest employee and cannot be trusted to hold a more responsible job title, not least because of her penchant for toys, sausages, socks and muddy puddles. She has, however, been part of the team since the beginning and alongside Amber is without doubt one of the main reasons the onlyFE team looks forward to going to work.
