I originally hail from South Africa where I studied Hospitality management and worked in five star hotels for many years until deciding that a change of pace was needed. I then joined a small recruitment company that specialised in the hospitality industry where I could utilize my industry knowledge to find the right personalities for a demanding sector. After 3 years I decided that it was time for a new challenge and so I moved to a larger recruitment company within the Finance sector. I enjoy dealing with different personalities on a daily basis which is why upon moving to the UK earlier this year I looked to continue with my career in recruitment and joined Astute.
Why I love recruiting...
I enjoy speaking with people from different backgrounds whilst helping them to achieve their career goals.
When I'm not working, I love to...
Watch Football, go to the gym, and spend time with family and friends.
Mathew took time to look into my career which is very diverse and other agencies ignore and just look at one part of my career He explained what the role was and how I could be a good fit
Also held a practice Teams talk as I had never interviewed like that before. So that was a great help and made my interview easier
Mathew has been excellent throughout and it has gave me encouragement to use Astute if needed again as over the year other agencies have been so poor compared to my experience with Astute
