Hazel Gillespie


Hazel leads our recruitment team, sharing her extensive experience and expertise across this industry sector and is a recognised expert at delivering key Senior and, Executive level recruitment assignments.

Over the last 10+ years of running her own, highly successful business, Hazel is delighted to have established Gillespie People Solutions as the leading Rec2Rec consultancy in Scotland and the north of England and, the expert to go to for genuine, honest and truly valuable advice, for employers and recruiters.

Back in 2011, after running award winning teams and coaching and developing colleagues and helping them enjoy successful careers of their own, Hazel decided to make a change and launch her own business identifying and developing new talent in the industry. Hence, Gillespie People Solutions was born and, she hasn’t looked back...!

Hazel confidently demonstrates her skills and wealth of expertise in the Rec2Rec marketplace providing consultancy advice to a long list of business leaders, large and small, in the recruitment industry across the UK. Hazel enjoys working with leadership teams, sharing her knowledge and working closely and collaboratively to get the right results. The Rec2Rec industry is a niche market which Hazel loves working in and, she genuinely enjoys making a tangible difference to her clients' businesses.

Outside of work, Hazel is a self-confessed foodie who loves trying new restaurants. She also enjoys experimenting in her own kitchen from time to time, entertaining friends and, still partying like it's 1999... now and again! Hazel’s greatest passion is her family though and she loves to spend time with her two boys - three really! As a result, she has now been forced to start enjoying football, learning how to play the Xbox and how to build the best Minecraft world and invite people to your 'realm'!
