Before PageGroup, where were you before and what were your specialisations?
I have a unique experience in multicultural environments from working previously for Isuzu Motors Thailand, as an Engineer for over three years. I also worked within International Sales at a Swedish IT firm for about two years, and living in both New Zealand and the UK. I specialised in engineering and selling work for both clients and suppliers in the business and industry sectors.
Why did you join PageGroup and what is your current role?
I have always wanted to gain experience in a rewarding sales-based career and work in an organisation that supports employees in reaching their intellectual, creative and leadership potential. PageGroup supports these values and I believe it is a place where we are able to develop and work towards a vision of management in the future.
I am currently a Consultant with Michael Page, specialising in recruiting for Sales and Marketing.
How have your past experiences helped you in your current role?
My working experience in both engineering and sales delivered me with an excellent introduction to clients from various industries. Moreover, I have been working in a multicultural environment, having lived and worked in New Zealand, where this experience has given me a start to an international career and understanding of successful business. My Engineering and Sales background has helped me to understand my clients’ needs and my candidates’ skill sets in order to place the right candidate in the right role. Working at PageGroup gives me an opportunity to work in a different area of business within a successful international company with a well-known global brand.
