Derek – January 2012

Derek – Dedicated, Determined and Down Right Charming Although Derek’s CV depicts 36 years of experience as an aircraft engineer, during registration he made it clear that he would consider any type of work, temporary or permanent. We were able to test Derek’s determination and placed him with a client in the food industry, a role completely outside of anything he would have ever experienced in his career. Testimony to Derek’s attitude, flexibility and reliability, we were delighted to inform him recently that our client wished to make him a permanent member of their team. Thank you Derek, you really did mean it when you said – offer me any type of assignment so that I can earn a wage!

About the author

I oversee all parts of the Octopus machine. From registering candidates to site visits with clients, I love the fast-paced challenge of it all. Leading by example, we are not just recruiters; we are sourcing advisors, which means we are able to act as a friend who can efficiently guide you through productive recruitment drives.

I love being a crazy cat lady, whilst taking mindful moments and balancing on my head! Check out my blog about using mindfulness to drive productivity. Yoga anyone?
