What do you do for Permanent People?

I work closely alongside Gemma as a Resourcing Consultant, helping to find talented recruiters across South Wales, Bristol, Exeter, Manchester and Birmingham.

How long have you been in recruitment?

In my 9th year this year.

Favourite recruitment experience/story?

One of the best experiences was winning a company-wide award for the fastest-growing desk in my first-ever recruitment role more than doubling the plan in my first year! That was almost nine years ago now and I still get a great feeling knowing that every day we change people’s lives by helping them to fulfil their work passions in new and exciting roles aligned with their personal goals and needs.

On a funnier note, some of the excuses I heard from candidates not turning up for their placements in the morning were priceless and I once placed an exam invigilator who slept the whole day in the exam room and wondered why he wasn’t invited back to complete the placement for the rest of the week!

What advice would you give a younger you in terms of your recruitment career?

Be yourself, work hard and enjoy what you do and remember to take some time out to maintain a healthy work-life balance, recruitment can be a fast-paced role and it can be so easy to burn out.  Get outside on your lunch for some fresh air, and enjoy time with colleagues and work friends. Laugh a lot, remember to have some fun and always treat others as you’d want to be treated.

What’s an interesting fact about you?

I speak fluent Welsh and French. I’ve lived in France and Dubai and have travelled a lot! Visited most European cities, Mexico, Cuba, India and the Middle East and once went on holiday to Beirut twice in the space of a couple of months. I’ve recently started weight training and I’m loving it!

Favourite things:

  • Food? Roast dinner
  • Drink? Gin & Tonic
  • Place visited? Biarritz, France
  • Film? Murder on the Orient Express
  • Band? The Beatles
  • Would like to visit? Tuscany or Venice

Quote to work by?

Be yourself, everyone else is already taken! Oscar Wilde

Teamwork makes the dream work! John C Maxwell

Today we pay homage to Gemma Hill and celebrate her 2 year anniversary with PP!

Gem is someone the business had known a long time, and due to circumstance and the stars aligning, the opportunity came up in 2021 for her to join the team - and we've never looked back.

She has brought a fresh, fun and very detailed approach to PP and the Rec2Rec market, something which our clients and all the candidates that Gem has dealt with will attest to.

We love having her on our team, she makes us laugh and truly cares about everyone she works with and comes into contact with in her role!

So here's to Gem's first 2 years at PP, with many more to come 💜
