Director / Recruiter in Pharmaceutical
Over five years' experience recruiting for SMEs and international corporations across various industries but with a particular focus on manufacturing and the pharmaceutical / life sciences sector, both permanent and contract.
Skills and personality traits
I am resilient, driven and personable which are invaluable traits when working in this industry. I excel at account management and building strong working relationships. I've worked in various recruitment companies including a start-up, an SME and a large corporate, all of which have given me transferable skills and extensive knowledge of different ways of working. I'm now utilising this experience to help run Quay and it's going pretty well!
I love music and I've played guitar for over 20 years and also some bass and piano. I am a Beatles obsessive and bore people senseless with “fun” facts about the Fab Four. I'm also a football fan; I live close to Fratton Park and I'm almost unbeatable on 1990s football trivia.
What makes you tick?
Success and knowing I've done a good job. It's very rewarding placing hard to fill jobs that solve a client’s problems. I love building and maintaining relationships; I am still working with my first clients from over five years ago and have worked with clients who have since become candidates and vice versa. With regards to Quay Recruitment, seeing the company grow and our staff develop is also very satisfying.
We have created a fun company to work for, where progression is possible and where the directors are hands-on with the running of the company and development of the staff.
