As the CEO of CIRCLE Recruitment & HR, my role involves overseeing all of our sectors as well as managing the entire organisation.
A key part of my management approach is having a very high priority on training. Working across many industries it is very important that the team is properly trained and remain up-to-date on industry trends and best practice.
By placing such a strong emphasis on training it means that our team is ready to assist any client at any time and know how to properly understand businesses and their needs.
Being the founder of CIRCLE recruitment & HR (originally Nine2three Employment Solutions) and having so many years experience, one of my specialties is creating strategies for clients, specifically Human Resources Strategies.
Having a solid HR strategy in place is crucial for any organisation, as it builds the foundation from which a business can grow and succeed. Devising strategies for clients, includes developing strategic HR objectives, aligning objectives to business needs, implementation methods, monitoring and evaluation tools and envisioning the future.
Anyone who knows me, will tell you I love my work and go above and beyond all the time. I have a wicked sense of fun and a knack at getting people to do what is needed. I’m highly energetic and always on the move.
I get a real kick out of driving economic outcomes from people management. It is one of my favourite sayings! Let the team at CIRCLE Recruitment & HR drive those economic outcomes for your organisation!
