I have been part of the team at Alpha Recruitment since April 2015, at this point I was not only new to Auckland but also to the world of recruitment. I feel that joining the Alpha team was a warm and welcoming experience to New Zealand life. As my unusual name may indicate, I am originally from Ireland but set off travelling in 2013 to discover the world outside of my tiny little Island. I have quite a varied background initially beginning my career as a physiotherapist and pilates instructor. Although my direction has changed quite a lot, my main passion has always been working with people in a way that can be of true value to them and recruitment really helps me to fulfil this. I work within the Commercial team running a busy temp desk focused on office support and administration based roles. My working day is always hectic but I love the buzz of working in a fast paced environment. I find it so satisfying carrying out the recruitment process out from end to end – from sourcing the best candidates' right through to placing them in their ideal roles. As I am relatively new to the industry I am still learning new things every day and I feel I am so lucky to have been given the chance to work with such a talented and motivated team to inspire me.
