Samantha’s Smart Path

After joining Smart Solution in 2017 as part of the permanent recruitment team, I quickly moved to manage key clients whilst also growing our commercial offering. I was instrumental in the management of our largest contact centre contract. Through my success I was promoted to Senior Consultant in 2019. Working in recruitment has developed my passion for people, and finding them the right roles.  I was able to pursue my passion for talent acquisition through developing my skills in head hunting and executive search. A plan was created for my progression and in 2020 I successfully landed my first Talent Acquisition position in the HR team!

Why would you recommend working for Smart?
The family mentality! This was the first thing I noticed in comparison to other agencies I had worked. My colleagues are friendly and always on hand to help! There was clear path set for my progression and this has enabled me to pursue and obtain the role I have always wanted!

How can you help people who are currently searching for their next opportunity?
The part I love most about my job is helping place people in their dream roles. Recruitment is more than just setting up an interview, and interviews can be quite daunting prospects! I am here to offer support and guidance pre and post interview! Whether its holding mock interviews in preparation to free CV help and advice.
