Senior Recruitment Consultant

Specialist Sector: Public-sector, Corporate Services West Midlands

I moved to the UK in 2015 and took a year out to learn English while working in coffee shops and bars. Shortly after that I decided to apply to Medical school as a joke to prove to I could do it. After 3 and a half years, I just couldn’t see myself working as a medic. Like many others, I got into recruitment without knowing what it actually was and clearly – I now love it! I love all the clients and professionals I work with and their passion toward the industry. No two roles are the same, and that's what's so exciting.

My advice to anyone looking to get into recruitment would be get your head down and work hard, listen to what people have to say and learn from them. Be resilient.
