Contribution Compass Profile

Catalyst

Value Proposition:

Introduction:

I decided to re-engineer my life’s journey and become an Enshrine Agent to place the right talent in the right position within the given time frame, and to continuously expand and improve my knowledge to add value and provide and deliver excellent service, to ensure the optimal recruitment process and experience for candidates and clients in the Engineering and Technical sectors.

This meant taking a decision to leave behind a career in the media and television industry of nearly four decades where I held the positions of Fashion Editor, Senior Fashion Editor and Fashion Director, working on magazines; I have worked both locally and internationally as a Fashion Stylist in television, advertising, commercials and fashion shows.

I have been nominated for and received several awards for my contributions to fashion.

I am a professional, self-motivated, high achiever and I value integrity and respect. My track record serves as proof that I am a creative thinker with an eye for detail, able to work under pressure and to meet deadlines. I enjoy working in a challenging and competitive market. I have excellent interpersonal, organising, budgeting, leadership and communication skills. I am a good listener and a clear communicator.

Being a recruitment agent, sourcing and recruiting engineering and technical talent, not only resonates with the above mentioned, but also allows opportunities for self-development and places me in a position where I continually meet new people, be they potential candidates or clients. In addition, it also affords me the opportunity to learn more about the different industries, disciplines and positions available in the marketplace.
