Lisa O'Brien CertRP, Specialist Account Manager
I stepped in to recruitment around 10 years ago working outside of London. I worked for two busy successful independent agencies mostly within the commercial field recruiting for all sectors, HR, Sales and Marketing, Finance, Legal, Executive Assistants at board level, coupled with a range of more specialist positions.
My philosophy has always been to be an honest and professional consultant (in a sense a holistic approach to recruiting), always striving to meet clients and candidates expectations, however moving forward with the industry and keeping up to date with an ever changing workforce.
Both my previous roles, have involved in working closely with candidates, advising on best interview practice, CV advice and assistance, mentoring candidates through selections process and in turn working closely with my clients to understand their culture and environment for best possible placements.
I always love a challenge and this job certainly has it's challenges, though I always know there is a solution to every problem that arises.
On a personal level, I have perused a love of travel and I have been fortunate enough to have a sabbatical and travel with my backpack to different parts of the world which include, the Middle-East, India, Nepal and Tibet the Himalayan region. Travelling has enabled me to have an open perspective to life thus developing myself personally and professionally.
