Tell us about your career progression to date.
I have been at Protocol “all of my life”, having started at 18 as a stop-gap before going to University to study Sports Coaching & Development.
Having deferred my entry for 2 years, I realised I had embarked on the start of an exciting career in Recruitment. My background in sports coaching and the love of any competition saw me thrive in this new world I found myself in. Over the next few years, I started to develop myself as a coach, mentor and manager. I am naturally a people person and team player, this was something I knew I wanted and needed to be.
Fast forward 14 years, leading the FE divisions at Protocol for the past 4 years, I can honestly say I love my role… It’s not just a job for me!
What job roles have you held since being at Protocol?
- Recruitment Consultant
- Senior Recruitment Consultant
- Team Leader
- Client Services Manager
- Head of Recruitment
What do you enjoy about working at Protocol?
Mentoring and coaching others is a passion of mine, and ensuring others are happy, satisfied, hungry, motivated, and successful is a top priority that I love! Seeing staff excel within their roles and grow, seeing people progress and better themselves is a feeling like no other.
Why would you recommend us to a potential candidate?
Protocol was the first company to give me an opportunity where others weren’t willing. I believe we all work too long and too hard in our lives to be working for a company that doesn’t appreciate and value you. I can say that at Protocol, you have all the opportunities for a lengthy career with support every step of the way.
