I started my recruitment career by complete accident. I was made redundant from my current job and literally applied for every job advertised. I remember being sat outside the interview room and hearing them say “This is the one I was telling you about zero experience BUT huge personality!”. At the time I didn’t know if that was a good thing or bad.

19 years later and I’m still loving EVERY minute of my role, so I guess it was a ‘good’ thing!

I’ve been part of the THOMAS team for 8 years and during this time, I’ve progressed from Senior Consultant to Business Manager and created one of the most successful branches in Blackwood, winning multiple awards over the years.

Our success is credited to our talented team and versatile recruitment solutions approach. We know that the ‘one size fits all’ approach doesn’t produce results for both clients and workers. We also make working with us a lot of FUN!

Our team is passionate about welcoming candidates into our business. We know that taking that first step into an agency can be daunting and we are here to get them past the initial uncertainty.

What I have come to realise during my time in recruitment is, it’s all about relationships and the service you provide. I’m VERY particular when it comes to the service I receive in my day-to-day life, and for that reason, I always pressure myself to get things 'Right First Time' in the service I provide.

I’m known for being a ‘people person’ which helps me to build STRONG relationships. And with a proven track record in FMCG contracts, high-volume clients, and higher-level placements, you know you’re in safe hands.

Recruitment isn’t for everyone - you must be resilient, target driven, focused, and above all competitive. BUT what recruitment IS…. is VERY rewarding, fun with outstanding money-making and career-progressing opportunities.
