Hi, what is your role at Concept?
I’m a consultant in our technology division specialising in the hiring of contract employees into large technology organisations.
Tell us about your journey at Concept so far.
I started in 2015 after graduating with a business management and marketing degree. Concept was my first job out of university but I’d had a year's experience in the industry which set me up really well for full time employment. I joined as an associate consultant and have since been promoted as a result of my success growing and developing our division’s supply of niche skill sets within the technology sector.
Why do you love recruitment?
Every day in recruitment is full of surprises. I like the dynamic and ever changing aspect of my role. It keeps things interesting and opens doors for me to learn new skills. You meet a lot of people in recruitment, especially in the contract market. I enjoy having positive dialogue with my candidates and clients and building an initial conversation into a long standing relationship.
It’s a really friendly office, what makes our business is the people. You can get different recruitment companies to work for but the most important thing for me is the people I get to work alongside, there is always a smiling face to greet me when I walk in the office.
What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
I like sporting activities, tennis is a big passion of mine. I also enjoy skiing and other outdoor activities when I get the time. I love cooking and entertaining my family and friends with good food and plenty of wine or champagne.
What would you say is your best feature?
I’d say determination. I have a can do, never give up attitude which I try to apply to all areas of my life.
Finally, if you were a film character who would you be?
Lara Croft because like me she is determined, driven and always gets the job done.
