Tell us a bit about yourself
I have been working within the recruitment industry for over 10 years. My roles have included Office Manager, Technical Build Manager and Senior Customer Care Administrator. I live in Urmston with my husband and three children. I love eating out, shopping and going on holiday.
How long have you been with Linear and how has your role changed in that time?
I joined Linear back in 2019; initially the role was temporary cover but within a couple of months I was offered a permanent role as Manchester’s Office Administrator. There’s always lot to do and I’m definitely kept on my toes. The role is varied day to day, although it's
guaranteed there will always be a CV to be tailored and a question to be answered on payroll or compliance.
What do you like most about your job at Linear?
I can honestly say I like all aspects of my job. I work with a great team and enjoy supporting them in their roles. I’m also glad I can manage my own workload/diary in order to get my jobs done.
What does a typical day look like at work?
Busy, you have to be a great multi-tasker and forward thinker in this role. Organisation is key and the ability to prioritise is always essential. The typical day usually consists of dealing with initial queries when people ring in, formatting CV’s, payroll of some description, booking candidates out and chasing compliance and any other jobs the team want to throw at me 😊
What advice would you give to someone starting a career with Linear?
Build good relationships with everyone as you don’t know when you may need them. Be consistent and trustworthy and communicate often.
What do you like to do outside of work?
Chill, although this can prove quite difficult with three kids! I do like going for country walks if it's followed by a nice meal in a country pub with a few glasses of vino to wash it down.
