Sophie joined TPP in 2008 as a consultant within our finance team. Having been promoted several times throughout her career, she now holds the position of Divisional Director. Directly managing TPP’s Office & Specialist Support team and overseeing Human Resources, Education & Training and the Finance, IT & Facilities teams.

Sophie’s experience and wealth of knowledge ensures that she can offer both operational and strategic input as part of the Senior Management Team. Following a management buyout, Sophie became an equity shareholder of TPP in 2019. Sophie drives a principled approach through her dedicated and long-standing teams, who all understand that their roles in recruitment are truly transformational, not only to the candidates but to the non-profit organisations we support.

Sophie enjoys volunteering within the sector in a variety of roles that she mixes up throughout the year, with a wide-ranging focus from the environment and health through to international aid. Sophie loves to travel and has done so extensively across Asia, North America, Africa and Europe. Some of her adventures include; canyoneering around Utah, camping in the Sahara, snowmobiling in the Arctic and stand up paddle boarding a large stretch of the Mississippi. At her happiest in the water, Sophie loves to snorkel and surf as she travels across the world.

Why did you join TPP?

Because of Tracey and Nicky! I met with Tracey and Nicky back in 2008 and knew straight away that I wanted to work with them. Well over a decade later, I am still learning so much from them both.

Your greatest achievement? 

Making an edible birthday cake… once.

Unusual fact? 

The UK has the world’s longest country name. The UKs official title of The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland makes it the longest recognised country name in the world.

Favourite film or book? 

I LOVE to read...Mario Puzo’s Godfather series (especially The Sicilian) are firm favourites, as are Stieg Larsson’s Millennium series, but then there is The Reluctant Fundamentalist by Mohsin Hamid, A fine balance by Rohinton Mistry… I could go on and on, it is impossible for any true bookworm to have just one favourite!

Tea or Coffee? 

Yuck to both. I don’t like hot drinks and prefer my beverages to be ice cold, no matter the weather.
