What made you want to join HRC Recruitment?

The different company values were something gave me indication that HRC cared about their employees, as well as investing the time into them. This made me feel like it was somewhere I could start to build a career. During the interview process, everyone that I had met was extremely welcoming and all spoke highly of everyone else in their teams and other teams. This was a positive sign that it was a great place to work.

What career path did you follow before getting into recruitment?

I worked within retail for five and half years doing various roles within Sainsbury’s.  I started as an assistant and then became a merchandiser. I then moved into recruitment within transport and warehousing in October until I gained a position within HRC.

What was your dream job as a child? 

To be the next Indiana Jones.

What’s been your biggest success so far?

Gaining my degree which, throughout the final part of fourth year, was extremely difficult due to the pandemic, where the support was not as strong as it would have been prior to this. I still managed to get a 2:1 which I am extremely proud of myself for.

Holidays (both beach and city breaks), cinema, going for walks/to the gym, nights out, going out for drinks, cooking.

What is most important to you?

A bit of a mix, it would primarily be family (I have a large extended family) along with building a career so I can save to move out.
