I have too many years in recruitment to mention! I started out in a generalist small agency in Birmingham before re-locating to Hampshire and finding my niche in marketing, PR and design recruitment at Talent Search. I spent a year trying out different sectors such as recruitment to recruitment and charity, but nothing beats the creative industry!
It sounds obvious, but smile and make eye contact. It’s also worth remembering you need to make sure you find the right company for you, so ask them why they enjoy working there and see if their eyes light up!
