Get to know Hannah

What is the most important skill as a recruiter?

Consistent communication is key to understanding the needs and ambitions of a candidate. Having a strong grasp on these then enables an efficient process from initial contact to post placement.

What are the values that drive you?

Positivity. I’m always wanting to go the extra mile in everything I do and am driven by an ambition to only make decisions that will bring positive action whilst always keeping a smile on my face. Positivity is the key.

What’s the most sought after skill set in your market at present?

With the current MDR transition due to come into effect very shortly, regulatory affairs candidates are highly desired by many of my clients. This will also continue in the coming years with the IVDR transition quickly approaching, so if you require or have this skill set please get in touch to see how Hannah can be of assistance to access her exclusive roles and candidates.

Your 3 ideal dinner party guests would be?

Meryl Streep, Gordon Ramsay and Barack Obama.
