My recruitment career started in December 2014 soon after completing my Masters. At the time a career in recruitment wasn’t an obvious choice, but after speaking with two fantastic recruiters who helped me identify what I wanted to achieve with my career, I elected to pursue a career in recruitment. For my first foray into recruitment, I joined a local recruitment agency were I learnt the ropes as a Recruitment Consultant focusing on the Telecommunications industry bringing candidates and clients together, across the EMEA region. However, I realised my real passion was resourcing and helping candidates through the recruitment process. I therefore made the move to Blue Pelican in February 2017, joining as a Resourcer to the Commercial Pharma team. My focus is now to help our clients find the best talent and help our candidates realise their career aspirations.
