Why did you decide to enter in the recruitment industry?
I ventured into the recruitment industry because I have a strong passion for building connections with people. Establishing new relationships is a key aspect of my personality, and as a Recruitment Consultant, I have the opportunity to develop meaningful connections while helping individuals achieve their career goals.
"Being able to combine my love for creating relationships with my passion for the healthcare industry was a great match..."
What was it about healthcare that appealed to you?
The healthcare industry has always been an integral part of my family's history. My grandmother, a nurse, established her own aged care business called Options For Seniors, and my mother also works in the industry. Combining my love for creating connections with my family's passion for healthcare felt like a natural fit, and it is a career path that I cherish and eagerly anticipate every day.
"...it was amazing to be able to provide that assistance, which benefitted both our client and candidate."
Can you share a memorable experience of a role placement you facilitated?
One of my most notable placements was for a part-time contract role. I successfully matched a skilled consultant who had been independently consulting and looking for a role in the Pharmaceutical industry with a client seeking a candidate for a six-month, four-day-per-week position. It was a perfect fit, and the candidate expressed gratitude for my assistance. It was a satisfying experience to be able to provide help that benefited both the candidate and the client.
"With my background, I am able to leverage my communication skills to best suit the needs of both our clients and our candidates."
What education background do you have that helps you with your current job?
During my university years, I pursued a degree in history, which honed my skills in both written and verbal communication, key skills necessary in the recruitment industry. I also took elective courses in business ethics, finance, economics, and advertising, which have aided me in keeping up to date with current events in healthcare, geopolitics, and world economics. My diverse educational background and experience allow me to leverage my communication abilities and knowledge to meet the needs of clients and candidates.
Why a client or candidate should work with you?
Transparency and honesty are integral values that I bring to all my interactions with clients and candidates. I genuinely enjoy assisting people and believe in treating them as I would want to be treated. I approach every situation from an ethical standpoint and work tirelessly to fulfill the needs of our clients and candidates.
