What are your thoughts on the recruitment sector attracting the next Generation and how can Qui Recruitment help?

We are very excited about placing the next generation of recruitment consultants. We are doing what we can to assist any credible, intelligent professionals who have a good standard of education, ideally up to A levels, combined with some very relevant work experience into our partnered client base. Those who have always been naturally competitive whether that be through sport or hobbies if their work history is limited. Our advice is conduct your research, speak to relevant people in your network, know YOUR strengths. Pick up the phone and be discerning when it comes to making a decision. Oh- and don't give up!!

 

As Qui celebrates its 10th anniversary during 2005, what does the future look like for Qui R2R?

I am extremely proud of all that I have achieved in the last 10 years as Qui Recruitment, maintaining the core principles of why I set the business up in the first placed. Offering a discreet and bespoke service to the candidates who can see the benefit and value in choosing a respected R2R exclusively to find them their next career move. Laura and I worked together 2003-2005 albeit in different offices and Laura has always provided an exceptional service in the London area. When she approached me this year, it seemed a natural and symbiotic transition for Qui R2R to add London to its portfolio. I have many clients who have London offices already and Laura is someone I have always respected and enjoyed working with. The future is exciting as we are both keen to build the brand further and hopefully recruit new talent ourselves when the time is right.

 

What do you do when you are not running Qui R2R?

Qui Recruitment is like my 3rd child however when I am not in "work brain"mode (which is rare!), I spend my leisure time with my daughters, aged 10 and 8- and am a very proactive and supportive social manager for them, so they can enjoy their hobbies such as horse riding, gymnastics, dancing and baking. I live in a rural location so when I get "me" time, I love to take my miniature schnauzer, Scooby, on long walks. I am an avid cook and foodie and I love to create my own imaginative fusion dishes, combining my love of all cuisines when I am allowed. I love to eat out too. I am secret book worm and have even joined a book club! I am a fair weather runner and amateur ballroom dancer too. I am the very patient wife of the master brewer of a microbrewery, Rammycraft, so I am also his official taster too!
