Fire & Security Recruiter
Specialises in :
Electronic Fire and Security Engineering roles (Blue and White Collar) and Technical Sales.
Experience and background :
I joined the world of Construction/Engineering Recruitment on the back end of the recession in 2010; boy that was a hard time, however, best to learn the job during tough times, right? I learned how to dig deep and go that extra mile from the get-go, which is how it should be!
Naturally, I am a ‘dig deep’ kinda person anyway so that worked out well and I love the graft, but I could not wait for the market to turn, foolishly thinking my life would become easier, but how wrong was I? It appeared that all the good candidates seemed to have gone underground, hanging onto their jobs, and rightfully so! It was like taking an imaginary crowbar to shift some of them, and when they did surface looking for something new, I started playing hardball. The clients of course needed outstanding candidates on the spot so, in a nutshell, I think it is safe to say that my recruitment life has never been a walk in the park. However, I love my job, the pace, and know and understand my market really well. I love what I do.
I am an ex-Royal Navy Warfare Engineer myself (many moons ago now) so like to think I can relate to my target audience on both sides. A girl in uniform and on the tools – what is not to love.
Since starting out in recruitment, I have successfully worked my way up through the ranks from baby recruiter to Divisional Manager of a Fire and Security team and I am pleased and extremely proud to say I did everything by the book, not one corner was cut.
I am now at Eligo working as a Senior Consultant in the Building Services Division, surrounded by supportive colleagues, great management and a great all-round working environment. Best of all, working for a company that is very passionate about what they do, always have the client’s, candidate’s, and employee’s backs – it's a very happy positive environment.
Interesting fact about me :
I have sailed through the ‘Bermuda Triangle’ several times without disappearing into the murky depths, also shot at a shark and missed of course with a SA 80 machine gun during deployment in the West Indies. Loads more crazy stories but I’ll save them for my memories.
