Working as a Candidate Consultant for Lawrence Dean Recruitment has been my first experience of working within the recruitment industry.
Before starting at Lawrence Dean Recruitment I worked in Grimsby as a Site Secretary within the construction industry. I had decided to move to the Hertfordshire area and started looking for suitable jobs. I applied for a few roles online and got asked to come and register with Lawrence Dean in person which I found quite refreshing. My first impression of Lawrence Dean Recruitment was really positive, everyone was really personable and professional. They really got to know me, my work experience and career aspirations and were genuinely interested in helping me find the right role. I was offered a few opportunities but after finding out there was an opportunity to work at Lawrence Dean as a Candidate Consultant I was sold! After reading the job description and experiencing first-hand the benefits of registering I was really interested, applied and was thrilled to be chosen.
My role as a Candidate Consultant is to get to know a candidate in great detail, fully understand their experience as well as what they are looking for in their new role and importantly the type of environment they would like to work in. The teams approach is very consultative and we only talk to candidates about suitable roles that we genuinely believe they will be interested in so I play an important part in this process. I love the diverse range of people I get to meet and think nothing is more satisfying then helping someone find their dream job!
Outside of work I enjoy visiting my family in Grimsby and try and go to the gym a few times a week.
