Working in commercial recruitment is exciting because…

I’ve come from a completely different working life! I’m used to being on the floor, managing a large team and chatting to customers day to day in hospitality. Recruitment is exciting in general. I like the idea of finding people their dream job and maintaining those relationships. I’m learning so much just talking to candidates and knowing what makes the commercial and sales clients tick. It keeps me on my toes

What does it mean to be a part of the Alexander Steele team?

The team are obviously the best in what they do, you only need to listen to a few calls to know that. But more than that it’s how welcoming and inclusive every single member has been since joining Alexander Steele. There was a large focus on team bonding and getting to know everyone on a personal level, even if they’re in Edinburgh! Professional, supportive and passionate.
