Why did you get into recruitment?

Before I ventured into recruitment, I was in a weird place career-wise. I used to be a developer, but I had no drive for a future in writing code and following someone else’s dream. I wanted to do something for me. I found recruitment to be the perfect way to make it happen. You have the opportunity to manage your own desk, you can build your brand however you like and most importantly by succeeding, you get an excellent commission. The question is why I did not get into recruitment earlier.

What do you enjoy most about the role and working in .Net Development?

About the role as a recruiter, there’s nothing like the thrill of a candidate’s enthusiastic “Yes” to an offer, and an equally pleased hiring manager who just landed a top performer. Operating the .NET desk has helped me meet some wonderful developers and being specialised at what they do, leads me to have interesting conversations with them and understand exactly their needs. Developers always greet a call when they see it’s from me.

What is your favourite quote that you live by and why?

“There is no scarcity of opportunity to make a living at what you love. There’s only scarcity of resolve to make it happen”.

What tips would you give for someone considering a career in agency recruitment?

Are you looking for something new and challenging? If yes, go for it!

Are you a goal-oriented person? If yes, go for it!

Are you motivated to work and get what you deserve? If yes, what are you still doing, go for it!

I’m not saying it’s an easy job, but what you get to direct your career path and it’s definitely rewarding!
