It’s a new year and by now I hope you are over the hangover, you’ve finished off the ham in the fridge (does it ever end?!) and you’re more than likely back at work. Recruiters are out in force as many of us think about another year in our current jobs and if its what we really want to do.
For me, I love what I do. I seriously enjoy recruitment and the challenges and rewards recruitment gives me as a career. Recently I have been working in the banking industry as a recruitment business partner. I thoroughly enjoyed it and got exposure to a global corporate – very different from the start up environment I was used to! However, to start 2016 I made a big jump. A jump across the ditch to Australia. It’s been a bit of a culture shock in some ways – I actually need a translator (who knew what a milkbar was?!) – but so far, so good. I’ve moved back into a management position, leading a medium sized team within financial services.
I’ve got a couple of blogs on the go for 2016 including one on my candidate experience coming to Australia, one about bias in recruitment and the last one about my New Years resolution – to give up alcohol for a whole year. Yes, a recruiter without wine. Talk to me in 6 months and I might be feeling different, but for now, I’m feeling great.
So, cheers to 2016! With a glass of Appletizer for me of course…
