Sue Penman


Having been at the helm of Bridge Recruitment for almost 22 years, Sue still relishes everything about Recruitment and running a busy office.  She enjoys the fact that no day is ever the same and there is never a time to stop learning in this industry. Sue has always believed that coming in to work should also be fun and that there should always be a great work/life balance.  It is her ethos that an engaged team is a successful and happy team and she strives to make sure that this will continue for the future. In her spare time, Sue is a member of a local running club and has a busy social life.  Cooking for her husband whilst drinking a good G&T is a rare perfect night at home.
