My background

Prior to starting my role at ATA in August 2021 I had no previous experience within this sector. The month prior to joining the team I graduated from the University of Exeter in sports and exercise science and upon speaking to friends that work or had previously worked in recruitment had a new insight into a role I had never previously considered.

I can help you with

I specialise in the recruitment of maintenance engineers within the engineering sector. Part of the service I provide is an in-depth screening process to evaluate candidates on personality, skillset, and motivations before putting them forward for a role. This enables me to fully assess the suitability of a candidate for a role and therefore offer the client an insight some of the candidate’s key features that may not be displayed on their CV. On the candidate side of my role this screening process allows me to appropriately match engineers to roles that they may not have considered themselves but suit their skillset and ambitions.

The best part of my job

The best part of my role is being able to talk to new people everyday and regardless of their situation be able to help place them in life changing roles to further develop their career.

What I do when I'm not in the office

When I am out of the office, I spend most of my time training in a sport called CrossFit. I do this 6 days a week often after work and have recently started competing with the hope to become competitive on a national level. Outside of participating in sport, I am a lifelong supporter of Leicester tigers and whenever I can attend home games with family and friends. When I’m not participating or watching sport, I like to relax by spending time with family and friends.
