I have worked for Meridian for nearly three years now in their Industrial, Office & Professional sector. In my 24 years of commercial recruitment I have managed a Branch and been a Director of my own Recruitment Consultancy for five years. however I have always been an active, fee earning Consultant.
In 1993 I started work as a Graduate Trainee Consultant, progressing to Permanent Consultant, Senior Consultant, Branch Manager, and then left to set up my own Consultancy which grew to a 12 strong team over a five year Period. I was invited to join Meridian nearly three years ago as Perms Vacancies Manager which was an offer I couldn't pass up.
In 2016 I was awarded with Best Client Facing Customer Experience award at Meridian's Annual Conference & Awards Ceremony which was a fantastic experience.
This year I have been shortlisted for the IPR Awards which is an incredible honour. After being in recruitment for 24 years this really is the cherry on the cake. Placing the right candidate in the right job is still what 'does it for me' and it is lovely to be recognised for that.
I am looking forward to continuing to grow the Meridian Brand throughout the UK. I would like to think that Meridian could grow the brand to be more recognised in the industry as a ‘specialist’ recruiter.
