Whilst heading up the recruitment partner team in full, Nel is also involved in decision-making and planning for ACR, working closely with Anne and Karen to ensure the company embraces the latest techniques and technology.
Talking about our team of recruitment experts, Nel said: “Collectively we achieve brilliant results for candidates and clients. There is no expectation for us to conform to a certain way of working – we each bring our own unique loveliness to the team and everyone supports each other. That’s right down to the fact that Anne is still very much operating as part of the team, it’s so important for our sense of inclusivity.”
Having worked in an internal recruitment role, heading up graduate recruitment for a management consultancy, Nel appreciated the support, guidance and mentorship of her manager. Joining ACR after moving back to Peterborough in 1997, Nel now provides the same to the ACR team.
Her passion for recruitment has been unwavering in that time, she explained: “We make a really positive difference; we find the best person and the right fit. As a team, we celebrate each and every one of those successes.
“From helping someone who has recently been made redundant regain their confidence, to then go on to secure a job at the first interview, right through to helping an ambitious individual make their next career step, it’s hugely rewarding to have been a part of that journey.”
Nel holds the Recruitment and Employment Confederation Certificate in Recruitment Practice and is a Fellow of the Institute of Recruitment Professionals, as well as holding leadership training.
Driven by people in her job, Nel loves being surrounded by people outside of work too – she even heads to the seaside with a whopping 33 friends and family once a year!
