1) What made you choose Kingston Barnes as an employer?
I wanted to join Kingston Barnes as on both a personal and professional level I felt as though I wanted to be a part of this company. Coming from a much larger recruitment outfit I wanted to work somewhere more personable where I was able to manage my own workload and be more in charge of my role and career.
2) Why did you choose a career in recruitment? Where does your passion/drive come from?
I have now been working within the recruitment industry for almost 10 years and it is an enjoyable environment to work in. We spend a large percentage of our lives working so I believe it is highly important to do something you enjoy in an environment that is right for you.
3) What interests you about construction?
Construction is one of the biggest industries to work in and there is always something to relate to or have an opinion on, as you use, see and like products that are directly related to the industry every day of your life.
4) What is your favourite construction project?
The Clifton Suspension Bridge as it is the symbol of The City of Bristol. It is a grade 1 listed building with a great history.
5) When you are not recruiting what do you do?
Outside of work I spend all of my time with family and friends. I enjoy being outdoors and like to keep fit, horse ride and generally enjoy myself. Socialising over dinner and drinks is also a favourite pastime.
