Recruiter Biography:

Similar to many other Recruiters, my story in Recruitment began when I fell into it, after becoming bored with the lack of challenge and pace of administration and customer service roles I had been working in, since graduating with a First Class degree in Event and Tourism Management from University Campus Suffolk in 2014.

I fell in love with the target driven environment, the ability to achieve by how much work I put in, and the power to make a positive difference to candidate’s lives, becoming fully involved in their story.

After spending my first year in Recruitment as a Resourcer with an agency in the IT sector, I have now joined Eligo Recruitment and am completing training in their Eligo Academy whilst Resourcing across their various sectors. I’m excited to have access to more tools to improve my service to candidates even further!

I enjoy a challenge and thrive at putting together a Sourcing strategy, exploiting all available resources to overcome obstacles thrown at me. I curiously explore, innovate and furiously try idea after idea, with a relentless focus on the Candidate and Client in order to improve results and quality of service in Recruitment.

When I'm not Resourcing you can find me at the gym working up a sweat hitting the treadmill and regularly practising Pilates, reading books and blogs for content inspiration, learning Dutch & French, browsing for travelling ideas and binge-watching Netflix.

How to look after your mental health when job searching

It’s time to face the facts. Mental health is just as important as physical health. The lucky few of us experience long periods of good mental health, however, others will experience mental ill-health which can be caused by a chronic condition or triggered by life events. One in four people in the UK will experience a mental health condition in the next year. One in six will experience poor mental health within the next week. Triggers can include personal life changes such as a relationship breakdown, or a change at work (including happy events) such as starting a new job or dealing with an increased workload.   Hands up who of you would feel confident talking to...
