I have been within the Recruitment Industry since 2009 and have certainly grown in this time.

Since April 2016, I am employed at Headcount Personnel as a Recruitment Consultant specializing in the Engineering and Technical sector.

My passion for people challenges me everyday and for me interacting with people strengthens my abilities.

Besides my profession within Recruitment and Selection, I am a freelance PR Consultant and Blogger.
