What drew you to recruitment in the first place?
Ana: I love meeting new people and providing advise and support. Recruitment allows me to meet new people everyday and to give out advise and support.
Ravi:One of my personal motivators is to support others and help them to get to where they want to be. What other great way to do this than to support individuals into amazing careers.
Richard: I will talk to almost anyone, especially if there’s a drink on offer! I enjoy finding out what makes people tick, what clients’ problems are and finding solutions for clients and candidates. Plus there’s always a good networking session to be had with a drink or two.
Describe your personality in three words.
Ana: Creative, Outgoing, Supportive.
Ravi: I am a rebel.
Richard: Individual, out-going, adventurous.
