Joanne Stanfield

Finance / Payroll Manager

My Name is Joanne Stanfield and I am the Payroll and Finance Manager and have worked for the directors since 2015 and specialise in recruitment, payroll and finance.

My work history has primarily been focused on the financial sector allowing me to gain over 25 years bookkeeping, financial consultancy and 10 years payroll experience across various sectors.

My bubbly personality is one of my best personality traits, and I keep the team smiling. I enjoy music, reading and gardening but most of all I have a huge love of the great outdoors. Most weekends you can usually find me wandering the hills with my amazing Collie Dog, Sheena and when the weather does not permit I can be found experimenting in the kitchen with my cake baking which, is of course, regularly shared with the SRS family to their delight.

I also support the community with charity work including horse-riding sessions for disabled children and even participate in sponsored activities in the local region.

Ben Sharpe

Commercial Recruitment Consultant

During my time away from the desk, I like to play guitar, both electric and acoustic, as well as writing music. This would also explain my love for live music events such as festivals which I attend on a yearly basis.

Also to many people’s dismay, I am a huge Manchester United fan. Being alone in an office of Liverpool fans also has it’s challenges, with a lot of disagreement surrounding the superiority of our favourite teams.

I also like to stay active, and have participated in many charity events for various causes that lie close to me. Up until now, some events in which I have competed in include the Chill Swim, Manchester 10k and Tough Guy as well as arranging some of my own events.

If your business is requiring support in the recruitment for commercial roles, give me a call on 01782 717766 and see what Smarter Recruitment Services can do for you!”

Laura Buyers

Care / Branch Manager

Hi my name is Laura Buyers I am Care Recruitment consultant; after working in care for 16 years I enjoy making an impact in the care industry. I have worked in a variety of job roles, including Care Co-ordinator, Training Manager, Quality and Compliance, Health and Social care trainer/assessor and a hands-on care role. I know what is important for both carers and care homes.

Whilst working as a healthcare trainer, I have written and delivered bespoke care packages for external companies across Stoke and The Black Country. I have seen many changes and developments in the care sector, and I am keen to pass this knowledge onto our carers to develop their practice and performance whilst in care homes.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time and doing crafts with my 2 beautiful daughters and walking the dog.

My focus is on candidate development, building relationships and recruiting qualified or first-time carers to join the SMarter Recruitment care desk. If you work in a care home that does or doesn't already work with us please reach out if you require any support and the team will be happy to help!
