Rochelle Bennie - Candidate Consultant
I am fairly new to the recruitment industry having only joined Lawrence Dean in 2013. Prior to this I graduated from University with a Law degree and have always worked within customer service focused roles. I have worked within a variety of different sectors including financial services and retail. So why recruitment? I really enjoy helping people and making a difference to their everyday lives and working for Lawrence Dean enables me to do just that! I was always slightly sceptical about recruitment companies as I felt they were all about sales and targets, my career to date has been a truly refreshing difference.
There are many different aspects of my role but the main focus is on candidate care. As a Candidate Consultant my main focus is on the candidates who need our help in finding their ideal job. From the initial meeting I like to build strong relationships with all candidates to ensure I get to know them on a personal level and truly understand their job requirements. This all helps in securing them their ideal job! I am passionate about working with a brand that is focused on people and I am very grateful for Lawrence Dean in giving me this rare opportunity as an introduction into the recruitment world. I focus on providing an exceptional service to the candidates I come into contact with, offering them advise and solutions to ensure I make the daunting process of looking for work as simple as possible.
Away from work I am busy trying to keep fit in the gym trying all sorts of new exercise classes, along with being a black belt in karate. I love to bake (sometimes more successfully than others) and have recently started my own home versions of Come Dine With Me!
