​What is your specialism at Cooper Lomaz?

Engineering – Manufacturing

What interests you most about the industry you recruit in?

Recruiting into manufacturing is like no other. Being able to support such innovative businesses in a diverse industry who play a huge part in the country’s economy really is interesting!

What do you do when you are not in the office?

I’m originally from Romford Essex so when I get a chance, I spend a lot of time with friends and family who are all based down that way.

What do you love most about recruitment?

Working in a role where the more you put in, the more you get out. I’ve always wanted a role where if you strive more and overachieve the opportunities afterwards are available to you, whether that’s being financially rewarded for my efforts or even being part of the ‘one team one dream’ vibe we have in the office.

What’s the best bit of advice you’d give to somebody looking to get into the industry you recruit in / recruitment?

Always look to further develop your skillset. The industry is constantly changing/improving and it’s best to stay ahead of the game.

What did you do before recruitment?

I worked as a Customer Advisor in a bank. It was a great job but I knew I wanted to be part of something bigger and find a job where I’m in charge of my own success.

Who inspires you and why?

My parents. Hardest working people I know, starting a business from nothing and teaching me a lot of lessons along the way.

An interesting fact about you…

Love playing the guitar. Play acoustic most of the time now but back in the day the hair was down below the shoulders and was very much a wannabe rocker!
