Careercake – All About Aimee Bateman

Aimee-profile-6Corporate recruiter…turned job seekers champion.


Over the last decade, I have held senior positions with some of the largest recruitment companies, helped thousands of people achieve their career goals and sourced talent for global corporations as well as smaller entrepreneurial businesses.


Along with winning the 2013 Institute of Directors (IoD) Talent and Innovation Award in Wales, I was recently awarded the Canmol (Chartered Institute of Marketing) Marketer of the Year Award. I have also been voted one of 2013’s Rising Stars by Business Insider Magazine.


Finalist for the prestigious Shell Live Wire Young Entrepreneur of the Year 2007 at the age of 26, I became a Welsh Assembly Government ambassador for the ‘Dynamo’ programme, which encourages young people to start their own businesses. That was 6 years ago now but I am still actively involved in the programme…and I love it.


As the featured careers mentor on various shows for BBC One, BBC Two, BBC Learning and BBC Three, I have written careers articles for The Guardian,, The Undercover Recruiter and more. My advice has been featured in The Independent, Glamour Magazine, The Huffington Post and Jobs & Careers Magazine.
