Meet the Recruiter - Sharon Spence

Why did you decide to enter the recruitment industry?

Whilst at University, I had a part-time retail position and was lucky enough to gain exposure to the recruitment side of things which I thoroughly enjoyed. I then pursued a career within recruitment and haven’t looked back!

How would you describe your role at Stafffinders?

I am part of the team in Edinburgh recruiting to HR, Office Support and Accountancy and Finance positions (temporary and permanent) across Edinburgh, Lothians, Fife, Scottish Borders, Aberdeen and Dundee.

It’s diverse and challenging which I need and I really enjoy the camaraderie and the team spirit.

What is the most rewarding part of being in recruitment?

When a candidate secures their ‘dream job’!

How do you spend your free time outside of work?

I really appreciate time with friends and family. I have two teenage boys and keeping them ‘busy’ is really important to me - we are quite ‘outdoors’ orientated (walking, cycling etc)

What would you say your favourite motto is?

If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always got”. (Henry Ford)

Who inspires you? 

Joanna Lumley - from aspiring actress to where she is now and her involvement with various charities.
