A couple highlights of my career so far have been being part of a top-performing branch that won Silver Branch of the Year Award in 2014, and being awarded a trip to South Africa for being a top-performing consultant in 2015.

Margery Hurst was quoted as saying “I never thought for a moment that I could fail”. Her vision and belief has inspired me to always strive for new milestones, and believe that anything is possible.

My top tip for anyone wanting to progress their career in recruitment, would be to build positive relationships with both your candidates and customers based on trust and an understanding of their needs.
