    ​I started at WRS almost 12 years ago with only a years’ experience in recruitment and zero knowledge of the energy sectors. I was given a PC, a phone, and a directive to go and explore the contract hire market in the Oil & Gas sector. Fast forward 12 years on and I am the Global Business Development Manager for the WRS Group, working across all our Energy divisions. I’ve spent time working in and developing all of our international offices. I am the client lead for most of our major accounts and more recently I have become a Director of our Joint venture businesses in East Africa. One of the key factors of my success is the autonomy the business has allowed me whilst constantly supporting the development work I have produced. Every step of the way our CEO and senior management team have been behind me to assess the opportunities coming to the table and make the right decisions on which to pursue. Together we have built and developed the international side of the group from a starting point of 10 people in South Manchester to our current standpoint of 5 global offices and a headcount approaching 100 people. I couldn't imagine working for another company. This is my home; this is my business, and this is where my heart is. Who we are and the work we do here at WRS defines us. The key to our success is the level of service we provide to our customers and candidates. Our reputation precedes us, and our client testimonials continue to verify this.

    ​I have always had an interest in the Oil & Gas sector, it’s something I’ve had an ambition to get into. So, I was delighted when I saw the position advertised and even more delighted when I was asked to join the Contractor Care Team at WRS. On my very first day, I received a great training plan from Emma Upton (HR) and my manager Richard Baillie-Gray. The guidance and support within my role have enabled me to learn new things each day about the sector and I felt confident operating in my role very quickly. I genuinely enjoy my job and all the people that work here. I look forward to developing myself here at WRS.

    ​Being part of WRS has been one of my greatest experiences. As soon as I arrived it felt like home, everybody was and still is so friendly with me. The way they are always looking to improve, to learn and to support each other as one is what I love the most about working here. It’s incredible that WRS gives me the opportunity to connect with so many amazing people all over the world, with different languages, cultures, and backgrounds. We speak about work of course, but also about their life, their experiences, their families (when we have the chance) and where they are looking to go. It is really motivating for me to know that I can change people’s lives on a daily basis and being able to give them the support they need through the process is something I feel really passionate about. For me is not only about coming to work every day, but also about enjoying every day and every moment during my time here. I am here to make the difference for the candidates, for my colleagues and for myself. Thanks, WRS for being a big part of my path!
