When did you join Clifton Shard Recruitment?

I worked for Clifton Shards sister company, C&D since September 2013 and fortunately was given the exciting opportunity to join Clifton Shard in October 2017 to create and develop the Trades and Labour desk.


Why did you choose a career in recruitment?

From leaving school I had my heart set on being a classic car mechanic, however within 6month in this role I realised that I didn’t enjoy this as a job. I then went into retail where I loved the people interaction so wanted to find a career where I could incorporate this into. I was then offered an apprenticeship in recruitment and since that day have been in recruitment. 


What is the most rewarding part of your job?

The most rewarding part of my role is hearing the candidate reaction when they have been informed they have been offered their dream job, nothing else comes close. 


And the most challenging?

Every job is challenging in their own way, its how we adapt and overcome situations.  


What skills do you need for your role? 

A good sense of humour, Self-driven and patience – Lots of it!!!  


What is your favourite construction project?

New Wembley Stadium was my favourite construction project, shame it is being tarnished by Spurs at the moment. 


How do you relax when you are not at work?

Like the recruiter reputation,  I participate in the occasional beer or two after work, I also enjoy spending time with my other half and my crazy dog, Teddy.
