After spending a year in New York, I joined Solas in April, 2019 where my role is to source top talent for the wide variety of roles and clients we work with. I decided on recruitment as a career having looked to some of my friends who are also Recruiters. They said that it would be a good fit given my personality and sales background. So far so good! I really enjoy recruitment as it plays to all my strengths and no two days are the same and I love the buzz of finding that special candidate. In my spare time, I play football three times a week and follow Liverpool anxiously!
