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.
Responsible for all our office accounts and running the payroll for the temps, Janine lives in Tewkesbury and has many years’ experience in accounts work. She keeps a keen eye on all things financial, managing the PAYE, and most importantly making sure our temps get paid every week! Always on the ball she is the hub of the office.
We are really pleased to welcome Lisa to the Team at First Choice Recruitment. Lisa is local born and bred, she lives in Tewkesbury with her partner and their cute little dog Roland. Heading to the coast in their VW Camper to enjoy the sea is one of their favourite pastimes, which is also enjoyed by Roland who loves jumping aboard the paddle board with Lisa and getting in on the action! Lisa is a natural people person with a wealth of local knowledge and vast experience within all aspects of office support. She has got to grips with the new job very quickly and is already proving a valuable addition to the Team. We are looking to working with her and with her warm, friendly personality we can already tell she is going to excel in recruitment and fit into the office really well.
August 2021 - Sadly Chloe is leaving us to focus and develop her sport massage business, but we wish her well, as for just over 3 years she has been a great assest to our Team, organising and supporting us with all things digital and keeping our social media current and updated. We really have seen her grow both in skills and confidence and she has seen us through new system changes and has been insrumental in keeing our database and technology up to date. I'd recommend her to anyone looking for a good massage therapist, she is highly qualified, skilled and knowldgable so check out her website - https://crsportsmassage.wordpress.com
