The First Choice Team
I started a career in recruitment because I wanted to be different from typical Employment Agencies, focusing on being approachable, friendly and providing an honest, ethical and transparent service. My background is in Hotel Management and people have always been my interest and inspiration. It seemed fairly logical to go into Recruitment and I am proud of the high standards and the dedication of my wonderful staff. Introducing employers to job seekers and fulfilling the needs of both parties is very rewarding and we're good at it too!
Lorraine is an experienced recruitment and resourcing specialist. She had been at First Choice Recruitment for 13 years but took 9 months out to pursue a career in HR in 2014. She gained valuable insight and knowledge working for a large Electronics company, which has really honed her skills and understanding of technical positons in a safety critical environment, including defence and aerospace. Lorraine missed the buzz of recruitment, interviewing and matching candidates to jobs and resourcing the right people for Employers. She ultimately decided HR was not for her (and she missed us all too!), so we are pleased she decided to come back to the team bringing with her lots of new and updated ideas.
