1. What initially got you into recruitment?
I didn’t go to university, instead, I looked on job boards and saw loads of recruitment jobs that said that you can gain a lot of experience and opportunities, so I started applying and landed my first role as a Talent Consultant in the FJ Birmingham office.
2. What are your favourite things about working at FJ?
The culture, everyone is so fun, so it is easy to get along with everyone. Everyone has similar personalities and are genuinely friends both inside and outside of work.
Lastly, I love having the opportunity to speak with people from all over the world on a day to day basis!
3. Describe your perfect, non-work day.
My perfect day would be chilling at home with my boyfriend Ant and fingers crossed for the future to get a puppy to talk on walks in the countryside. I have always wanted a Shiba Inu and I want to name him Jeff. As you can see from the photo above, I am a huge dog lover and cannot wait to get my first dog!
4. What goals do you have for the next 5 years?
For professional goals; I want to work my way up to be in the ‘Top 10 Billers’ list! I would also love to earn a promotion to get into Management – running a small team, feeding team roles; mainly sales and within the European region. So, my small-term goals are to get established as I can be in the company and then take the right steps to get into managing a team.
Personally, I want to earn enough commission, so I am in the position to buy my first home.
