This journey made me learn new skills and made me stronger in facing challenges. I learned how to talk to job seekers, understand their goals, and work with employers to understand their hiring needs.
The culmination of these efforts resulted in a substantial accomplishment—billing nearly £60K in 2023. This success reflects the harmonious integration of acquired skills, resilience, and effective communication in navigating the dynamic recruitment landscape.
