Tell us about your journey as a recruiter
My journey into the world of recruitment began at a pivotal moment in my career, when I was seeking a role that would be the perfect fit for me. I was completing a six-week temping assignment where I was given the task of manually conducting reference checks for a massive recruitment drive on behalf of a major retail company. It was a challenging and rewarding experience, and at the conclusion of the initial six weeks, I was presented with the incredible opportunity to begin my career in recruitment.That was a decade ago, and since then, I have never looked back.In 2021, I joined the Hallis team, where my primary focus has been to work closely with clients, gain a deeper understanding of their company culture, and identify the right talent to help them achieve their goals. I am highly passionate about what I do and consider it a privilege to assist both individuals and companies in achieving their objectives.
What changes do you see happening in the recruitment industry in the next 12 months?
I believe that the demand for work from home flexibility will continue to shape and transform the recruitment industry in the coming year. Companies that can adapt and innovate to meet these changing needs will be well-positioned to attract and retain top talent in an increasingly competitive job market.
Another change is the focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in the recruitment process. Companies are recognising the importance of building diverse teams and are taking steps to eliminate bias and increase transparency in their hiring practices.
What's one piece of advice you'd give to employers?
Focus on building a positive candidate experience. When candidates apply for a role, they are making an investment of their time and effort in the application process. Even if they are not selected for the job, it’s important to treat them with respect and make their experience as positive as possible.
