I am well versed in recruitment of any sort and have a thorough understanding of the principles of recruitment, interview and selection. Good understanding of Project recruitment and life cycle. I have the special ability of finding a "needle in a haystack" and I am a keen investigator of new and innovative ways to make operations more effective.

I have a natural ability for reporting, investigating, administration systems and also keen interest in investigating developments on the internet that could be useful to the Company in terms of new marketing, searching and networking opportunities.

I am passionate about working with candidates and finding the individual that is "tailor made" for the position.
