Why did you decide to enter in the recruitment industry?
My entrance into the recruitment industry was not a calculated decision, but rather a fortuitous occurrence that has proved to be an incredibly rewarding journey. As I began exploring the field, I was struck by its fast-paced nature, dynamic environment, and opportunities to work with diverse candidates and clients. The challenge of matching the right candidate with the right organisation, contributing to their mutual success, proved to be a fascinating and fulfilling experience.
What was it about healthcare that appealed to you?
My interest in healthcare recruitment stems from several factors. Firstly, I find that the hiring managers in this industry tend to be warm, approachable, and focused on helping their patients, which creates a positive and uplifting work environment. Additionally, I find the medical field fascinating, particularly in terms of its constant innovation and research. The ability to contribute to improving people's lives through the placement of skilled and compassionate healthcare professionals is incredibly gratifying, particularly in underserved areas where access to quality healthcare is limited.
Tell us about your most memorable role placement. What were the challenges and achievements?
One of my most memorable placements involved pitching an exclusive assignment to a CEO and board members, a daunting task that required significant preparation and confidence. However, with my in-depth knowledge of the industry and my passion for helping people, I was able to successfully place a psychiatrist in a community that had been struggling with a shortage of mental health professionals for years. It was an incredible feeling to know that I had helped improve the lives of the people in that area by providing them with access to critical healthcare services. While the process was challenging, the ultimate achievement made it all worth it.
What education background do you have that helps you with your current job?
My commerce degree in Banking and Finance has proven invaluable in my recruitment career, particularly in understanding the needs and perspectives of hiring managers. By understanding their goals and objectives, I can provide insights into how the right candidate can help them achieve success. My background in finance has also been helpful in discussing topics such as ROI, operational efficiency, and value proposition with clients, ensuring that we are both on the same page and working towards the same goal.
Why a client or candidate should work with you?
With over 18 years of experience across HR recruitment, business partnering, on-site agency recruitment, and in-house recruitment, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the table. My customer-centric approach, passion for helping others, and dedication to realising their full potential make me a valuable partner for clients and candidates alike. Whether it's providing guidance on resume preparation, conducting interview preparation sessions, or offering career advice, I am committed to helping people achieve their goals. Furthermore, I operate with the utmost honesty, transparency, and integrity, ensuring that everyone involved in the recruitment process is treated with respect and fairness.
Your personal Advice for Candidates
My advice for candidates is to focus on their strengths and be confident in their abilities. It's essential to highlight their skills and experience in a clear and concise manner, tailoring their application to the specific job they're applying for. In addition, candidates should always prepare thoroughly for interviews, researching the company and the role they're applying for and practicing their responses to potential questions. Finally, I would encourage candidates to remain patient and persistent in their job search, staying open to new opportunities and networking whenever possible. With the right mindset and approach, the right job opportunity will come along.
