Meet Melissa, one of our new consultants!

Back

Melissa joined us just over a month ago and has hit the ground running here at Connect2Staff! As an experienced Recruitment Consultant, we thought we'd find out a little more about her and what she get's up to both inside and outside of work...  

 

Why did you choose Recruitment as a career? 

I started my career within the NHS as a Mental Health Administrator.  As satisfying as this job was, I really wanted something more exciting and rewarding.  Everyone around me told me I needed to be in sales, so I went for it and never looked back!  I feel as though I have found my calling within recruitment, I absolutely love every aspect of the role!  I am 6 years into my recruitment career and cannot wait to see what the next 6 years bring.

 

What do you enjoy most about your job?

I absolutely thrive from getting to know new people, so this is the perfect job for that.  I get to speak to job seekers daily, which I love. I also really enjoy business development and building relationships with new clients.

 

What will you be recruiting for at Connect2Staff?

I will predominantly be putting my focus on finding talented sales candidates across the UK.  BUT I don’t like to put all of my eggs in one basket and have lots of experience recruiting across all business support roles, so will also be focusing on helping businesses find anything from a Warehouse Operative to a Managing Director.

 

Top tips for candidates?

My top tip would be to keep your CV current, with as many ‘Buzz Words’ in your CV as possible, without being too repetitive. A good way to do this would be to add a ‘skills matrix’ to the bottom of your CV, which is a list of your key skills and the industry you work in or are looking to work in.  This way your CV will always be nearest the top when Consultants search on job boards!

 

What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?

I am an avid gym goer, so I go before work to get me fired up for a busy day in the office!  But I also love seeing my friends & family and taking my two beautiful dogs for a long country walk at the weekends.
