- Permanent Recruiter of the Year - Debra Fong & Christina Giakou
Finally, two of our life-changers, Debra Fong and Christina Giakou, have been nominated for permanent recruiter of the year.
Debra joined the Edinburgh office shortly after it opened in 2018 and had some great success off the bat, securing two 360 deals in her first 6 months. Debra has received praise from her candidates for taking a patient, friendly and professional approach to recruitment, making people feel supported every step of the way.
Debra is always willing to go the extra mile for her candidates, for example, when one of her clients was hesitant to sign a new contract because they were struggling to find appropriate housing, Debra took the time to help her client find a home, so they could accept their dream job without stress!
In 2020/2021, Debra changed 46 lives, and we think she's an excellent candidate for permanent recruiter of the year. Best of luck Debra.
Christina works in a niche area of the Life Sciences sector, but this hasn't held her back at all. Over the past year, she's placed 22 people in their dream jobs!
When talking to some of Christina's clients, you will learn that she's a proactive, supportive and helpful recruiter with an excellent ability to understand people's requirements and match them to their dream jobs.
Christina also started a book club at HRS to bring people closer together and to help relieve stress during lockdown. Everyone involved in the book club is especially grateful to Christina because she's made a huge difference to their well-being and mental health.
Christina's dedication to her job, and her proactive approach to making the HRS workplace a better place, is certainly deserving of an award. We have our fingers crossed for you.
We can't wait to attend the REC awards later in the year, and we'll be sure to share the results with you all! In the meantime, we wish everyone who's been nominated the best of luck.
