What is your current role?

I’m a Specialist Recruitment Consultant covering Psychiatry across the UK and Ireland.

I have had the opportunity to really get to know my specialty and have learnt how to strategise and prioritise efficiency.

What’s your team like?

The team is really helpful and supportive in any situation whether it is personal or work related, it’s great to have that support network and it really pushes me to achieve my goals.

Every day is different, I get to speak to a lot of people and build relationships and I learn something new every day. This is my first role in sales, I have previously worked in other areas of the industry such as sales support, payroll and compliance, having the prior knowledge behind me from my previous roles really allows me to have a good understanding of the business as a whole and it’s great to be able to apply this to my job as a recruitment consultant. Being able to help my candidates find the perfect role is very rewarding.
