Now retired, Philippa was one of the financial world’s top headhunters for many years, with her legendary boutique firm, The Rose Partnership, whose main office was in the City of London. Known the world over in the Executive Search industry, she has advised many of the largest investment banks on their most senior and expensive hires. She had a reputation for being forensic in her research to find the best people, super-challenging as an interviewer, and scarily accurate in her assessment of her candidates. Now she has turned her beautiful 53 acre home into an events venue and I can tell you, it really is quite something! Renowned for saying it as it is, she demonstrated her straight talking style in the first episode of the Job Interview series, on ITV last May, in which she hired, live, her assistant for her new business: Events at Wickham House. Not surprisingly she got it very right, and Isabel Stewart has turned out to be everything Philippa wanted and more. Isabel now runs the business day to day with Philippa dipping in and out whenever she can. We thought she might be up for giving you a few tips for being interviewed yourself, and to our delight she has accepted. Come and be inspired!
