Having graduated from Middlesex University with a genuine interest in Marketing and after careful consideration of what I wanted for myself, I decided to pursue the path of marketing recruitment! A few career leaps later, I’m now a Consultant here at Allexo Search watching myself achieve my goals one placement at a time!
What is your area of specialism?
Here at Allexo Search I’ve really taken over recruitment for all FMCG brand marketing roles mainly within food and beverage, personal care and alcohol; however what’s really enabled me to flourish as a recruiter has been the exposure I’ve had in recruiting across various functions from brand marketing to category and insights, through to a diverse set of commercial roles!
How is life at Allexo Search?
Life here at Allexo Search is busy, but we do know when to take a break, let loose and celebrate achievements. It’s always very important to have a good balance between being hardworking, proactive and doing all you can to deliver beyond expectation but also being able to recognise accomplishments and acknowledging when we all need a pat on the back… Allexo definitely has a good balance between the two!
Best moment in recruitment?
Making placements consecutively (that was a good quarter!), which in the end set the foundations of victory… (In other words I hit my target for a lovely, sizeable quarterly bonus!). What could be better right?!
Any advice for a new starter?
Just keep going!!! We all know recruitment isn’t always deals coming through left right and centre with daily celebratory drinks and dinners out… Some obstacles are JUST out of our control… BUT, if you stick it out and work through the “lows”, you’ll definitely achieve the “highs” and get to experience all the fun that comes with it!
