Tell us about your role at Circuit?

I am a recruitment consultant that specialises in the Java market here at Circuit. I work as part of a team that identify amazing roles within the Java space (both backend and full stack) and then fill those roles with amazingly talented Java developers looking for the next step in their career. Whether you’re a client or candidate of mine I pride myself on my customer services skills, ensuring I always provide a timely, honest, and enjoyable experience for everyone I work with.

What 3 things do you enjoy most about what you do?
  • Helping people find the best role for them.
  • Helping clients find the best candidates for them.
  • Everything thing else about the role that helps me, help people!
What do you enjoy the most about working at CircuIT?

The culture & environment! I am surrounded by fun loving, energetic and like-minded people who are always willing to collaborate and most of all have fun together. There’s nothing like rocking up to the office in the morning and seeing everyone’s smiling face or attending a quarterly celebration with the Circuit team. The environment gives me the freedom to practice recruitment in a way that aligns to my values as a human, rather than a money grabbing machine. At Circuit, I feel like I’m given the space and freedom as well as the guidance to help people with honesty, transparency & integrity.

Tell us about your proudest professional achievement?

I don’t typically like to blow my own horn when it comes to this sort of thing and some of the achievements I’m most proud of consist of receiving feedback from candidates and clients who’ve had positive experiences with me. In saying this though, breaking the company’s resourcing record in my first quarter of working with Circuit felt like an amazing feat. Straight off the bat, I was provided with expert training and support to be able to not only achieve my goals, but also surpass them. In that first quarter, I managed to set the benchmark for myself and learn more than I ever thought was possible.

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

Be tenacious and work with recruiters that you can develop a trusting relationship with. Tenacity will take you a long way in your job search. I’ve seen candidates who have gone through the process with upwards of five companies and each and every time they interview, they are able to take what they’ve learned, improve and build their confidence and before you know it, they’ve got an offer. The key is not to give up and surround yourself with support, some of which can come from working with the right recruiters. Build a network of recruiters that you trust and can get quality advice from, having these connections will be invaluable as you navigate your career as we hold the keys to open the most exciting doors for you.

What do you enjoy doing outside of work?

COVID has given me the perfect opportunity to hone in on my favorite hobbies which consist of, singing, makeup, nail art, water color painting, cooking (and spending my money on fancy cooking equipment) as well as, managing my family dogs Instagram account (follow @thatssoroman_ for loads of cuteness)! If you want to get me going on a tangent, then feel free to bring up music too, I’m always curious to know what other people listen to.

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

Transparency – I resonate with this value so much because I’ve always lived my life by being honest and authentic and it’s my experience of life has always been so vibrant and positive when I live this way.  I think when you’re transparent you have the best chance of helping people through building trusting relationships. The core of what I want to achieve is to help candidates and clients achieve their end goal in the most efficient and enjoyable way possible, keeping it real is the best way to do that in my opinion.

Testimonials – What do people say about Natalie?
“Natalie has been by far the best recruiter I have ever worked alongside. She listened carefully to my requirements, was no-nonsense, and made me feel cared for. I would never use another recruiter after having worked with her.” - Tom Gardiner 
“Natalie is by far the most personable recruiter I have come across. She has excellent interpersonal and communication skills, and most importantly, if she tells you that she's going to get back to you, she will! She was spot on with evaluating whether or not the role was suitable for me, even though I was initially unsure. The most important thing that Natalie displayed that made my experience enjoyable was how she really took the time to understand my situation and not write off my unconventional background like many other recruiters did. She understands that though volume and numbers are important, that this is a people business at the end of the day. I would wholeheartedly recommend Natalie to anyone job hunting, or to any businesses looking for talent.” - Ryan Kwan
