I joined Kiwi in 2017, having worked in the Recruitment sector locally for 4 years. Initially I fell into Recruitment, however, I have stuck with it because I genuinely enjoy it, there is such a thrill when successfully filling a position, the pressure, the competition, it all motivates me to do better, each day.
It all appears to have worked, too! I have now expanded the temporary placements desk to include a new Recruitment Consultant to assist in managing the hundreds of employees we place, daily. A temporary placement can be anything from 1 day to up to a year.
An absolute highlight for me has been helping a homeless man who was staying with Stone Pillow for 6 months. Once we had found his first placement, he was hooked and worked solidly to get back on his feet. Last Christmas he flew out to enjoy the festive season in Miami! I have had a few people in a similar situation and it really does make all the difference to know you have truly had a positive impact on someone’s life.
In 2018 I am focusing on further developing the temp pool to acquire more talent and be established as the best Temporary Recruitment Manager in West Sussex.
If time and money were no object, I would travel the world, it is one of the things you need to do. There is so much more to life.
