Regional Manager West and have been with the company for 12 years.

How did you get into recruitment? 

I fell into HR with an indigenous Irish company initially to cover maternity leave – I enjoyed the recruitment element so I applied for a recruitment role with Collins McNicholas and here I am today!

What are the biggest changes you have seen in recruitment since starting your career in 2000?

Really the changes our turbulent economy has thrown our way – ups and downs.  Unfortunately, the downs were tough in 2008-2009 but we weathered the storm.

What is the last/current book you are reading? 

The Professional Recruiters Handbook – always good to keep up to date with new techniques in our industry!

What are your hobbies? 

I love music, singing & dancing – I run a lot to keep fit.  My kids and husband are my main interests outside of work!

What is going to be the next big thing in recruitment? 

I think social media is the way forward and it will constantly evolve to bring new techniques and angles to source talent moving forward.
