 “I love the variety my role brings. Accounts and Administration roles at times can mean a lot of “behind the scenes” tasks, with not a huge amount of meaningful human connections. However, I am fortunate that this is not the case here. I can connect and form relationships with a variety of diverse individuals, candidates, and clients assisting them with their journey, answering queries and ensuring smooth transitions.”
