Why did you decide to enter in the recruitment industry?
I thought it was a great opportunity to use my customer service skills to work in an industry that was outcome focused every day. I love that no two days are the same!
What was it about healthcare that appealed to you?
The work that I do has a direct impact on peoples lives and I love that I am a part of that.
"I placed the perfect candidates for both roles and they are still there to this day!"
Tell us about your most memorable role placement. What were the challenges and achievements?
My first placement in Supply Chain.
I was new to the sector and previously recruited Administrative roles. I met a client to pick up an Executive Assistant role, he also asked who could help with a Supply Chain Manager and I said I could work with both roles. I took the brief like any other role and went to market as this was a new area for HPG. I placed the perfect candidates for both roles and they are still there to this day!
What education background do you have that helps you with your current job?
My degree is in Publishing Media which sounds very unrelated to what I do however it helped develop my people skills, presenting abilities and organisation skills.
"I genuinely have my candidate and clients best interest at heart..."
Why a client or candidate should work with you?
The financial results from placements make a small part of my role. I genuinely have my candidate and clients best interest at heart and it's imperative for me to guarantee every candidate has the tools they need to get the right role for them.
"...specific achievements and projects you have worked on are all super relevant to future employers!"
