Why did you decide to enter in the recruitment industry?
Having gained a solid foundation in Employment Services administration, I knew I was ready to tackle the next level of the game. With over 20 years of experience under my belt, I've parlayed my expertise into a thriving career in recruitment, spanning everything from education to healthcare and beyond.
What was it about healthcare that appealed to you?
The healthcare sector is a veritable treasure trove of exciting opportunities, and I relish the chance to work with a diverse array of talented individuals. Whether it's sourcing top-notch scientists, medical professionals, or pharma gurus, I'm always up for a challenge. And with roles ranging from administration to manufacturing, there's never a dull moment in healthcare recruitment.
Tell us about your most memorable role placement. What were the challenges and achievements?
My most memorable role placement was a tough one: a Pharmacy Assistant position where the client demanded full-time availability, but the candidate was restricted to part-time work due to visa limitations. It took some serious wrangling, but in the end, I managed to find a solution that worked for everyone involved.
What education background do you have that helps you with your current job?
I hold a Certificate III in Employment Services and a Certificate II in Business Administration. These qualifications, along with my extensive experience in recruitment, give me a deep well of knowledge and expertise to draw from when helping clients and candidates.
Why a client or candidate should work with you?
When you work with me, you're getting more than just a recruiter – you're getting a partner who's deeply invested in your success. With a personal passion for improving healthcare outcomes, I'm committed to using my skills and knowledge to make a real difference in people's lives. And with a keen eye for CVs and a wealth of recruitment know-how, I'm confident I can help you achieve your goals.
Your personal Advice for Candidates
Don't sell yourself short! Even if you don't tick every box on a job description, focus on the transferable skills and experience you do have. And when it comes to your CV, remember: less is more. Keep it clean, clear, and concise, and you'll be sure to catch the eye of recruiters like me.
