What 3 things do you enjoy most about what you do? 

Recruiting within Tech has really allowed me to challenge myself – I’m still relatively new to the tech world, so being able to learn something new about tech every day has been awesome. 

The best part of what I do would definitely be helping my candidates’ find their dream role! I understand that applying for jobs and attending interviews can be an incredibly stressful and overwhelming time for candidates. What I love about my job is that I’m able to guide my candidates through the whole process so that they feel comfortable and prepared from the very beginning, all the way to the end. 

I love building relationships with my candidates and learning more about each and every one of them. Getting a new and exciting opportunity can really change lives, and I love that I have the ability to be a part of that process..

My first placement for sure, and the ones after that! It makes me happy to see how excited my candidates are when they receive the good news, it never gets old.

What advice would you give to people looking for a new role?

Looking for a new job can be a little overwhelming, especially when there’s so many options. Make sure you take the time to figure out what you want to do next. Reflect on what’s most important to you – is it salary, career progression, the work/projects or the company culture? Once you know what your main drivers are, it’ll be easier for you to determine whether the job will be right for you.

What do you enjoy doing outside of work?

Outside of work, I absolutely love hitting the gym. Nothing feels better than smashing out a good gym session and being able to push my limits; staying in shape is a bonus!  

I also enjoy playing the guitar and singing. I love music, you’ll find me listening to a bit of everything, from Taylor Swift to heavy metal.

Which of the Circuit values resonates most with you and why?

Dedication – being dedicated to work is really important to me, it drives me to stay committed to getting the job done. I believe that when you put in the hard work and challenge yourself, you will achieve great results and ultimately reach your highest potential.
