Elise Ogden

Elise grew up in the quiet countryside of North Wales moving to Manchester in 2006 to study Civil Engineering at UMIST. Having graduated during the height of an economic downturn, she decided to take a job in recruitment in order to bide her time until construction was back in demand. What began as a short term fix quickly turned in to a long term career. Elise realised that building long lasting relationships and matching talented professionals to their ideal role was something she genuinely enjoyed and gained great satisfaction from. A rather fortunate result.

Fast forward ten years and Elise has established herself as the go-to recruiter for Actuarial contractors in the UK General Insurance market. She has always prided herself on high quality service ensuring her clients receive the best candidates out-there who can truly add value to their teams.

Elise now has two young children, William and Beth. Family is Elise’s number one priority with the Actuarial world coming a close second. In 2018 Elise left the corporate world of recruitment to focus on her family, however the peace of homelife wasn’t to last long, with clients of old asking for help with their recruitment. With much encouragement from old friends Elise set up Ogden/Scott offering a high calibre and tailored recruitment service.

Ogden/Scott is a small boutique recruitment company offering a personalised service. Elise’s network allows clients to receive a truly bespoke service with a candidate pool akin to a large international recruitment company. Her long-term goal is to build a recruitment company that offers an inclusive environment to talented recruiters that know their industry and simply need the resources and environment to do what they do well.
