This week our Personality of the Week works in recruitment . Recruitment is a very diverse role which involves client / candidate management, business development , attending presentations, meeting and interviewing candidates, organising interviews and the best bit of all is letting candidates know when they have received a job offer!
Not for the fainthearted, the rewards are second to none although it is a role that always requires passion and commitment. This week our personality feature is based on one of our most passionate recruiters working within our digital team.
