Abi Robertson

Recruitment Consultant

Abi on the recruitment industry:

The recruitment industry is an interesting and dynamic business. Building relationships with candidates and clients and being able to use your own empathy and initiative to help people is a very rewarding process.

You should speak to me because:

  • I love helping people and understanding their situations
  • I am very methodical
  • I put a lot of effort and passion into everything I do

Interesting fact about me:

I’m a proper foodie and always have an array of snacks around me… I’m also a dog lover but unfortunately I’m not surrounded by those all the time.

In 2017 I spent some months travelling down the east coast of Australia and I’ve also been to the likes of Iceland, Canada, Egypt, Portugal and America.
