Architecture & Design - South West

Carla moved to the UK in 2015 and took a year out to learn English where she worked in coffee shops and bars. She then decided to apply to Medical school as a joke to prove to herself that she could do it. After 3 and a half years in Med school she couldn’t see herself working as a medic.

This is where she then got into recruitment without knowing what it actually was and clearly – she now loves it!

Carla is now a consultant specialising in all Architecture and Design recruitment within the South West Region.

What do you like about your desk?

“I love all the clients and professionals I am working with and their passion toward the industry. I like the fact that I cover Bristol which is a beautiful part of the world. Why I fell in love with my desk? It’s always different and it always changes. There are no 2 roles the same, that’s exciting right?”

What advice would you give to someone coming into recruitment?

“If you are coming into recruitment I would say put your head down and work hard, listen to what people have to say and learn from them. Be resilient.”


Best recruitment moment? 

Changing someones life by getting him the dream job with an £150,000 pay cut. In the end it’s not all about money

I’ll probably be in the country side doing some nice walks or cooking

If  I wasn’t in recruitment I would be a… 

Probably be an Army Medic

Favourite place in the world?
