If we’re sitting here a year from now celebrating what a great year it’s been for you in this role, what did we achieve together?
I think it’s an achievement for other people to think you’re capable of taking on more responsibility. So as long as I’m aiming for that, I’m happy.
When have you been most satisfied in your life?
When I’m eating cheesy chips…
Who is your role model, and why?
My mum and dad – are both working parents and they have worked really hard so that me and my sister could do the things we wanted to do.
What things do you not like doing? Be it professionally or personally.
Being bored. I hate not having anything to do, sometimes I like having nothing to do and it’s a nice break, but I want it on my terms.
What is your most significant accomplishment in your career?
I’m currently smashing this quarter, which is still ongoing!! Hopefully, I will make it a lot more!!!
If you could do anything, just once. What would it be?
Be invisible for the day.
How would your team describe you?
That’s quite a hard question to answer without trying to sound big headed, I’d probably say I’m a bit of a fruit loop…a motivator, kind, supportive and willing to go the extra mile to help anyone that needs it.
How would you describe your favourite colour to someone who is blind?
Orange: Warm, happy, soft and welcoming.
If you could speak to your 5-year-old self, what would you say?
DON’T chop all of your hair off in Year 8 to look like Frankie from the Saturdays, it will take 7 years to grow back!
What makes you a great recruiter?
My attention to detail, the time I invest in each candidate and the strong relationships I build with the clients I work with.
Life can be tricky, who or what is your biggest motivation?
My family and myself – being able to do the things I want to. Whether it’s a nice holiday or a day trip out, spending money on myself and friends and family for a nice present, feels much better to have earned those things for yourself.
Onwards and upwards!
