Here to help you find the next step in your career
You spend an awful lot of time at work so if your job isn’t making you happy then maybe it’s time to look for a new one.
There are lots of recruitment companies out there and I promise you that we aren’t all created equal! Especially if you’ve had a negative experience in the past, using a recruitment agent may not be at the top of your list.
When I place a candidate I try to focus on who they are and what they are interested in. I work hard to get to know my candidates so that I create great matches whereby people fit the companies I’m working with as well as possible. Sometimes, that means that I can’t find you a job right away, but I always have a number of roles up my sleeve for the right person.
It’s not in anyone’s interest for me to place candidates in places where they won’t be happy. The first step in working with me will be for us to meet for a cuppa or to have a phone conversation and for you to tell me all about you, what you do and what you’re looking for.
That will mean that I get a sense of what you want from a new job and the kind of atmosphere you will thrive in. If I don’t think you’re the right person for a vacancy that I have then I’ll always be straight with you!
I will ask for your CV to pass onto relevant companies, but I won’t edit it like some recruitment agents do – your CV is your front window and it’s not for me to amend as it reflects how you want to talk about yourself. I don’t just send CVs over though – I will only put someone forward for an interview once I’ve met with them and I know what they are looking for as this saves time for everyone. Again, there’s no point in putting candidates up for interviews if they are never going to get (or take) the job, and I don’t want to waste anyone’s time.
I work with some great companies and I always try to work for companies that have a positive, can-do culture and that value people and their skills.
There are some great people running some fantastic businesses in Lancaster, Morecambe, Heysham, Carnforth and the surrounding areas and it is a real pleasure for me when I get to know a candidate and can place them somewhere I know they can be happy and fulfilled, and where the company can benefit from their skills and attributes.
So, if you are looking for a new job, drop me a line! I always have a list of current vacancies and I often have a number of ‘when I find the right person’ roles in mind, so it’s always worth getting in touch.
I tend to specialise in office based roles, with a focus on graduate roles for people who have some experience in skills such as sales, marketing, web development, SEO, IT, management and consultancy. However, it’s always worth enquiring if you are looking as I get to know about all sorts of roles that are coming up!
If you are new to Lancaster, welcome! Having a coffee with me is a great place to start in your job hunt and if I don’t have anything immediately for you, it’s always worth us staying in touch as you never know when great jobs will come up.
