Personality of the Week – Recruitment

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!
