I have worked in recruitment for over 18 years and I still find one of the most amazing parts of my job is knowing I’ve helped someone to change one of the biggest parts of their life, their job.
I recruit for senior level roles and run three teams across our business.
Work in partnership with your recruiter to gain your ideal role. You should have open dialogue and see the search process as a joint effort. Work out a plan of action, companies and hiring managers to approach and then keep in contact for progress updates. It’s important that you know what is being done on your behalf and that you keep a record of this for future reference. I would also advise anyone to prepare for every interview, even if you think you are a pro. You should tailor your responses to focus on what you have achieved that pertinent to the role you are interviewing for, not just showcasing all your talents.
I grew up in a small village on the South Coast of England. A few years after university I decided to head off travelling for a short break, 15 years later I still call Australia home.
