Senior Recruitment Consutlant

Like most recruiters, I fell into my job. Unlike most recruiters, I love my job! My story begins when I completed a Technology Degree in GMIT and then went travelling to Australia where I started working in an Architect’s office in Adelaide, SA. From there I travelled up the east coast and back down to Sydney where I changed career paths working in HR and recruitment roles. 

5 years later I came home to sunny Mayo and applied for a HR job that CCP Recruitment (now HERO) had advertised and after the toughest face to face interview to date with Michelle Kilcar, here I am, 6 years later in a job I didn’t apply for.

I believe recruitment is a marmite game, you either love it or you hate, having been in technical recruitment for just over 7 years now every day is still faced with a new challenge, it is a fast-paced environment, and you need to be on the ball. Having a genuine interest in engineering for me is half the battle, to understand the hiring managers requirements in a candidate and really dig deep into the type of person that will fit on their team. The key to success in this game is building relationships. Your candidate could become your client, your client could become your candidate. I still have much to learn and lots to practice.  As I’ve been told from day one, Work smart not hard and Listen, then Listen some more.
