Firstly, how long have you been with Service Care?
I joined in June 2013.
Give us a brief overview of your professional background...
From 2008-2011, I was a BSc psychology student at Manchester Metropolitan University obtaining an upper second class honours degree. After then working in a full-time retail sales position for over 2 years, I decided that my skillset was be much more suited to this type of working environment and therefore opted to pursue a career in recruitment. I joined SCS in 2013 as a recruitment consultant specialising in the supply of mental health professionals to the NHS, private and not for profit sectors. I have since progressed through the management ranks at SCS and now operate as a Senior Divisional Manager managing a team of specialist team leaders and consultants for the Healthcare and Legal sectors.
And what does your day-to-day role involve?
I am responsible for the management of a team of over 25 personnel which consists of divisional managers, team leaders and specialist consultants. Through the day to day training, development and mentoring of my team members, I ensure that we offer the best possible service for each of our public, private and not for profit sector clients.
I also account manage a master vendor service for Derbyshire Healthcare NHS Trust which involves the management and the fulfilment of all temporary healthcare vacancies within the trust. I specifically ensure that we meet the trusts minimum service level requirements whilst measuring and managing the performance of all our subcontracting agency suppliers.
If you weren't in recruitment, what would you be doing?
A Professional Golfer (although I’d probably need a bit more practice).
Lastly, when you're not in work, where can we find you?
Playing golf/football, going to the gym and taking trips travelling around the world. (Love Asia!)
