International Women's Day 2022

‘‘I have always had an interest in people and problem solving, and so recruitment was the right career for me! I joined Apleona in 2011 as an HR Advisor, and in 2016 I was given the opportunity to progress, by joining the in – house recruitment team as a Recruitment Consultant. Six years later, I now oversee the entire recruitment and selection process for Apleona in the UK.

When a vacancy comes through to me, I have a briefing with the hiring manager to understand more about the role and what they are looking for. I then tailor the job adverts accordingly and I advertise the role on job boards. I then sift and short-list CV’s, present them to the hiring manger and schedule interviews.

I truly enjoy speaking to candidates and getting to know them, - of course my favourite part of the job is calling the successful applicant and making that all important offer. It is always a great feeling on boarding our new starters and being part of their journey - and then seeing them flourish in the business as they progress.

An Apleona highlight for me was being nominated and winning an All-Star Award in 2019 for exceptional work. The thing I love about working here is that hard work and dedication is always recognised.

In terms of employment trends - I have certainly noticed a change over the years. There are more women than ever applying for senior/director roles and I think in part this is to do with employers being more flexible with roles and hybrid working really taking off since the pandemic - allowing that greater flexibility and choice. As a recruiter, I believe having a diverse workforce only makes a business stronger.

I am proud to be a female working at Apleona. There is so much opportunity here to progress, with plenty of training and development options. Having been with the business for a long time, I have seen for myself the positive growth employees have made since they joined the business."
