I moved to London in September 2015 from Canada and was really excited to accept my offer to join the Finlay James London team in the October.
Currently, I am working in a 360 degree role where I help develop clients and candidates either find new opportunities, or find top talent sales professionals. I place on a global basis and have recently been having great success in the Canadian and US markets on top of the UK.
After having graduated university in 2014 with an honours degree in Psychology, I had no idea that I would end up working in recruitment - let alone live in a foreign country! I have always had a passion for traveling, however never had the time or the money during my studies. When I completed my program I decided to go on an adventure so I lived in Italy for 3 months working as an au pair.
Although I definitely ate my body weight in pasta, I had the most amazing experience and soon realized that for the next chapter of my life I wanted to continue to travel – so here I am in London!
I have just completed my first year in recruitment, it has been a challenging but very rewarding experience! I thrive working in a fast paced environment and love the social aspects of interacting and building rapport with people. I haven’t regretted one moment of my decision to move to London and I certainly haven’t regretted my decision to join the FJ team. Without sounding too cheesy, Finlay James has become my new home away from home. We have an amazing team in all of our offices and I feel lucky working with such a talented bunch and I truly look forward to progressing within the company.
If you are looking to add to your team please get in touch with me to discuss further details- I'd love to hear from you!
