A little about Georgina…

I am currently Operations Manager at The Work Shop. I started here in 2012 as a Recruitment Consultant and then progressed to Branch Manager – I’ve now been here for 11 years!

I originally worked in sales and marketing for a large holiday resort in southern Spain for 8 years. I then had a brief stint in IT Recruitment – I loved recruitment, but IT was the wrong industry for me.

How (and why) did you get into recruitment?

When we decided to move back to the UK, I put a lot of thought into what I wanted to do. I love working with people, and also enjoy a fast-paced environment that involves working towards targets, so I kept coming back to recruitment – and it seems to have been a good idea!

What does your day-to-day role entail?

I oversee the smooth running of both branches, get involved in training and some HR, but still am very much a hands-on recruiter, working with some really interesting and long-standing clients and managing a candidate talent pool. I also work with clients for individual career coaching sessions.

Are there any qualifications you may have – or working towards?

I have recently qualified as a licensed career coach. I have loved working with clients to help them realise their career aspirations or focus on their goals.

What do you like best about recruitment/your job?

So many things! No two days are the same, I get to meet so many interesting and varied people at different stages of their career and learn about so many different businesses. After so many years I’m now starting to see some of the candidates I placed get into high level management – and even become clients. I work with such a great team and love watching people come into the job and grow into the role.

And not work related…Who’s the most famous person you’ve ever met?

My Mum worked in the music business, so I’ve been lucky to meet a few famous people over the years. One incredible moment was going to Kate Bush’s house and listening to her play her beautiful white grand piano!
