Why did you become a recruiter?
It was a good way to use my industry knowledge while at the same time appealing to my preference for a very outcome focused role with a very direct relationship between effort and results! Plus, it’s a lot of fun to be able to offer people a job!
What is your biggest piece of advice for job seekers?
Find a recruiter that really knows the industry your career is in, one who is open and honest and takes a genuine interest in working with you to progress your career, not just fill a job! Don’t be afraid to ask a recruiter to take your details off their database if you have had a poor experience with them
What’s your secret talent no one knows about?
Despite what my interview notes look like, I can actually do calligraphy!
Choose a movie title for the story of your life + why.
So many choices – Pulp Fiction because my life is such a crazy ride sometimes, Star Wars because I’m in the battle of good vs evil, Monty Pythons The Meaning of Life, because ultimately you just have to laugh! But if I had to choose one, it would be Dead Poets Society – Carpe Diem!
