I am a Senior Recruitment Consultant for leading facilities management recruitment company, Maxwell Stephens. I have been with the firm since 2015 and my role within the business is to ensure the smoothest delivery of end to end recruitment support to both clients and candidates.

Having graduated from Northumbria University at Newcastle with a Human Resources Management degree in 2013, I very quickly landed myself a great role as HR Assistant at the Community Campus based in Stockton upon Tees. Within a couple of years, I joined Maxwell Stephens, originally as a resourcer – in recruitment consultancy. In September 2016, I was promoted to the position of Senior Recruitment Consultant.

My role is complicated but it gives me tremendous professional and personal satisfaction. I’m in charge of the recruitment process for client vacancies based in the UK and overseas. I have a proven aptitude for finding, greeting, and building relationships with some of the best white-collar FM staff in the industry. Maxwell Stephens has always been known for the quality of its candidates, particularly at mid-management, senior management, and board level, and I continue to play a significant role in growing and curating the company’s large database consisting of this talent.

I have a keen eye for detail, showing a real understanding for sometimes complex client job briefs. With my in-depth knowledge of the candidate database, I can create a shortlist very quickly of just the right candidates to recommend for interview. I also manage the interview and offers processes, work with candidates who were unsuccessful at interviews including providing feedback, and keep in regular contact with candidates I’ve placed.

For me, the most enjoyable aspects of her work are helping candidates win their dream job and helping clients improve their businesses by providing them with the right person. Because we’re a small company, we care much more about quality than quantity. When you fill the types of job we fill, it’s a much more involved, intimate, and managed process. You’re with them every step of the way and, to be honest, most clients and candidates aren’t used to that and they really like it.

I see my future firmly at Maxwell Stephens and when thinking about the five years ahead, I want to help the company win more business, build upon its already highly-regarded reputation, and visit clients more often to further strengthen the bond between the firm and its customers.

Robyn was a true professional during my recent job search activities. Moving from the other side of the world is stressful enough but the recruitment activity was always under control and I received regular updates and recommendations. I am sure that, if it had not been for the skill and tenacity of Robyn, that the process could have fallen over at any point. I now have a position matched to my skills in the area that I wanted. I would recommend Robyn to any professional looking for that ideal position.
