Favourite part of the job: Speaking to new people and learning about them. If I can offer them the opportunity to further their career, I find that particularly rewarding.

How long have you been working in recruitment? Since April 2016. Recruiting on behalf of a variety of clients such as; luxury retirement villages, a background screening company and a FTSE 250 technical facilities management provider.

One random fact: Massively obsessed with houses made using shipping containers.

Bonus Question

The best career advice I’ve received: Following on from finishing university and deciding that I wanted to pursue a career in a sales based role, I spoke to a friend who already worked in the industry to see if they had any advice for me. The best advice they gave me was to try and get a job in cold calling and door to door sales. They said if I could stick this out, handle the rejection and bounce back, then I could be successful in anything.
