Britt Reiss

How would you describe yourself?

Determined, loyal, kind, optimistic, fun!

What interests you about your role at Eliot Partnership?

I am passionate about using a holistic approach to understand our clients’ requirements – drilling down to comprehensively understand their strategy, ethos and vision for success whilst also facilitating impactful career moves for candidates. I especially enjoy the exhilarating challenge of working on Board hires finding established leaders but also being creative to identify diverse and up and coming talent.

What would you like to explore and learn?

I would like to learn to sail. My father tried unsuccessfully to encourage me in my youth, but I rather fancy it now, especially living in Bermuda.

What is your most pertinent life hack/lesson?

It’s never too late to start the day over, one of the best mottos I have come across. No matter what the day has turned into, pull your socks up and turn it round.
