Here's an insight into Gene and what makes him tick...

Tell us about your role at Circuit?

I work within the Data space at CircuIT, an exciting part of the tech industry that is growing in leaps and bounds. The shape of Data is still very fluid, so on a daily basis you’ll find me speaking with Candidates and Clients about the drive into emerging tech around Cloud, Machine Learning and AI.

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

My favorite part of Data at Circuit is learning about emerging technologies in real time, closely followed by celebrating with candidates when they land their dream role and being part of a dynamic team that is reshaping the face of recruitment.

What do you enjoy the most about working at Circuit?

I love that CircuIT is dynamic, flowing with the industry in real time. This is backed by an outstanding company culture and a real focus on people, both inside and outside of Circuit.

Tell us about your proudest professional achievement?

Probably my first placement. It was a dream role for the candidate, and he has taken to it like a duck to water. I still get regular emails detailing his adventures in Data!

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

In your career, you won’t always get the role you want right away, but your persistence and hard work will see you through. Don’t be afraid to leave your comfort zone!

What do you enjoy doing outside of work?

I am an avid MMA fan and hope to get back to it soon! I spend my time reading, cooking and getting left in the dust by my friends in Forza 5!

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

The team support at CircuIT is amazing. There is always someone willing to offer a helping hand or a piece of advice, a very nurturing environment.

Testimonials – What do people say about Gene?
“I have had an excellent experience with Circuit Recruitment. Gene Collins did a fantastic job helping me to find my new role. He gave me advice and patiently helped me to prepare for each stage of my interview process.” - Yutao Chen 
“I have had the good fortune to connect with Gene Collins for an IT role. Gene articulated what the role entails very well and how I would fit in to it. While I get messages from recruiters many times a week, this is the first time that I am highly recommending a recruiter to my peers.

I was impressed by how Gene was committed to ensuring that I have a successful job offer throughout the whole interview process. He kept me informed of what to expect at each round of the interview (there were many) until I got the job offer.

Unlike other recruiters, Gene made me feel that I am not just a number but spent time to understand my strengths and how I can positively contribute to the business. I highly recommend Gene to anyone finding a job, or any businesses looking for talent.” - Kevin Ong
