My current one! It is varied, I get to work with lots of different people at different levels throughout the business, it is fast paced and I learn something new everyday!

I am a mummy first and foremost to the loveliest 6 year old girl (and Golden Retriever pup!).  I am married 10 years and I am working almost 23 years!

I enjoyed my early 20's living and working in Spain before coming home and working in some temporary roles before starting with British Airways.  I loved dealing with customers and selling holidays to them (and I really enjoyed the staff travel perks!) but sadly the offices in Belfast closed, leading me to property sales for a short time before I discovered recruitment.

I had a great career with Randstad, working almost 8 years there however, shortly after returning from maternity leave, I decided it was time for a change.  

I am now working at AMS and feel I have finally found my home.  The clients, candidates and people (internal and external) I work with, the variety of work / projects and opportunities for progression keep me driven and motivated every day.

Don't be afraid to make mistakes - they only add to your learning.
You can't know everything about everything! Find out who does know and ask questions.
Get involved in different projects - this will give you exposure to other areas of the business, to other people you might not otherwise have the opportunity to work with and allow you to develop - and follow through on your commitments.

I had no idea! I liked languages but didn't know what else I could do with them other than teach - and I didn't want to teach! I went to University and spent 2 years in Spain - now I don't use my languages at all.

I had very limited advice or guidance and my choice to study languages was quite restrictive so if I could do it all again, I would opt to do a language with Business - I think this would have helped get me to my destination sooner.
