Tell us about your career so far?

I began my career working in a Primary School but, after a few years, I decided that I would like to venture into something different. I then moved my career into the hospitality industry where for 4 years, then COVID struck, lockdown happened, and it was during this time being home with family that I decided I had done my fair share of unsociable hours and was ready to start the next chapter in my career that was more suited to my family life at home.

This is when I started my career in the Merchant industry, working at Buildbase for nearly two years on the counter, I really enjoyed the Merchant industry and learned a lot about the sector from my time there.

Why did you join GCS?

After working in the Merchant sector for a few years, I was looking for a new challenge within the sector where I was still able to work with people and use my customer service skills. I joined GCS, the Merchant Specialist recruitment agency, to dip my feet into something slightly different but still working with the merchants. It was an exciting change, and I am loving every single minute of it!

What’s your role at GCS?

My role at GCS is Recruitment Consultant, specialising in the Construction Supply sector. We are based in a brilliant office in Corby, Northamptonshire .

In general, my role is all about finding people jobs and providing the best shortlist of talent possible for our clients. I assess the job specifications from our clients and then, using my network & our database, source and evaluate potential candidates.

Finding great candidates for our clients is the best part of my job! I also really enjoy getting to know our candidate. I can help job seekers by being able to talk from experience and help them to understand the next steps in their career – helping with interview and presentation prep etc.

What do you do outside of work?

When I’m not at work you can find me around Northamptonshire dressed as a princess and attending children’s birthday parties as a princess entertainer or out and about exploring with my partner.
