About Emma Roberts
With over 10 years experience in the public and private sector, Emma Roberts heads up the support services team for the commercial specialist recruitment agency, White Horse Employment, overseeing marketing, finance, IT & systems, & legal compliance, providing essential recruitment and business advice to jobseekers and hirers.
Emma joined White Horse Employment in 2006 following a career path working both in the UK and Europe for the MOD having successfully attaining her degree in Computer Science. She has gained a wealth of experience in Marketing, IT, Project Management and Senior Administration. Her background of working within a large organisation has provided the company with a wealth of knowledge and understanding to help White Horse Employment work more effectively with large clients with a national presence and on-going looks at improvements in efficiency and cost effectiveness across all IT and administration functions within the company.

"Moving around the UK and Europe was very much part of my lifestyle, and when I moved to Wiltshire in 2006 I hadn't envisaged finding a role or company that I would love to work with so much.
Supporting the team I get involved with all aspects of the business and love the fast moving pace of recruitment, which is ever changing and multi faceted. Creating innovative and bespoke advertising campaigns plays to my creative and artistic talents, and researching advertising media keeps me up to date with market trends.
Never knowing what each day will bring adds a touch of excitement to the role and whether it's attending business meetings with trade associations, organising seminars, creating mail shots or reviewing and updating IT systems to ensure we remain at the leading edge of the recruitment market gives me plenty to think about.
Anything I, or the Support Services team, can do to make sure the consultants are free to focus their time and energy on employers and jobseekers means that we can continue to provide an unrivalled service."
