‘What led me into recruitment?

My past work history on paper looks a world apart from Education recruitment, but in reality, it is this experience that has enabled me to find a role at a great company and succeed.

The Army taught me discipline, time management and good organisation. Whereas my time as a custody officer gave me great interpersonal skills and diversity.

I worked with juvenile’s and young adults in the prison system and built up a picture that they tended not to of had a good education or role model within a school setting. I wanted to help to change that which is the reason Education recruitment stood out. Secondly, my skills and personality mean that recruitment and sales are not areas I struggle with or see as a barrier. I am able to be confident around peers and can be influential without coming across as arrogant which in recruitment and sales, always puts you in good stead.

I am now able to be the maker of my own future and can hopefully make a difference in some way to helping young people and educational system in my local areas.’
