What’s your career background?
I have six years’ 360 recruitment experience, which is a mixture of internal and agency recruitment. The bulk of my experience comes from the financial services industry. I have a NQF level 5 Higher Certificate in Business Management, and I am currently studying through IDR to become a Certified In-House Recruitment Consultant.

What’s been your biggest accomplishment at IDR so far?
Being able to study through IDR to thrive in my role whilst also juggling a full-time job and parenting. IDR really does encourage and cultivate a culture that pursues personal growth alongside business growth.

What is the best piece of career advice you’ve ever received?
“If you don’t know how to do it, say yes and then learn how to do it” – Richard Branson. A previous director once told me this and it has helped me to push myself to do things I never thought I could.

What do you enjoy doing when you’re not working?
I love reading and spending time with family and friends. I especially enjoy being creative with my son.
