Sommer Lindley

Managing Director

With over 20 years of recruitment experience, Sommer has worked with some amazing organisations and truly inspirational people who invested time in helping Sommer pave her career, these people she will always be thankful for.  

With a move down South when she was 19, Sommer found her way into the recruitment world and never looked back, working with clients who became friends and placing more candidates than she can remember…. to this day she is still just as passionate and driven.  

Moving back “UP NORTH” some years later after a successful career in the south a position became available at Austin Banks recruitment a role that would change her career forever. She started as a Recruitment Consultant and after a few years, the opportunity arose to take over the business, going from a consultant to a business owner overnight. She successfully ran the business for 10 years while juggling being a mum to her young son and riding the recruitment roller-coaster.  

When not working, Sommer is usually running around after her son who seems to think she is his personal taxi service! He plays rugby most weekends, so her time is taken up come rain or shine at the side of a pitch! 

Sommer loves to travel and explore new places, but her favourite place is Thailand. 

Sommer’s dream job if she wasn’t in recruitment….she doesn’t know she has done this for so long!…. Maybe something that involves travel or is near the beach and sea.
