Meet the Team

Julia Hughes

I chose to base Working Solutions in Ludlow, Shropshire which is renowned for a high quality of life and outstanding natural beauty.  I moved to South Shropshire after living for 5 years in Berkeley, California in the 1980s and take a 'can-do' approach.

I am passionate about helping our Clients prosper and grow.  I use a consultative approach, taking time to understand needs, culture and aspirations and am driven by Quality and Professionalism, not by Targets.

I am a qualified HR practitioner (CIPD) and undertake Skills Analysis, CV advice and interview coaching for candidates.

I am licensed to use DISC - Thomas International Psychometric Personality and Ability Profiling as well as EQ.  I am trained in undertaking a Needs Analysis of your staff (using a skills matrix and other methods) where clients are considering training and development needs of their staff. This service is offered at NO COST.

With nearly 30 years in Recruitment I arrived in the outstanding town of Ludlow in 2014 from Wolverhampton.  I bring with me successful experience within many fields of Recruitment including PA, Secretarial, Sales, Customer Service, Finance, Hospitality and Education. I have an honest and ethical way of working that allows me to make the right choices for both my Clients and my Candidates, and have worked with some Clients for over 15 years.

I am always available for some advice or just a chat, and will always try to make the day as enjoyable as it can be. I’m looking forward to working with Working Solutions for many years to come and spreading the success through our Candidates and Clients.

I joined Working Solutions to run the busy temp desk in 2017. I returned to my roots after a successful decade as an Estate Agent from Worcestershire to London and back again. Fancying a change, I have jumped feet first into becoming a recruitment guru! Helping to match people to the right job is very rewarding, I love to see people happy in a job they are proud of.

No job is too small, so if you are looking to recruit temporary staff or register as a temp I am here to help.
