Five minutes with Lorraine Shine
- What are the main job sectors you recruit in? I recruit primarily for Finance, HR and In-House Recruiter roles across all levels
- What is the best thing about your job? Our approach to recruitment at Allen Recruitment is very much relationship driven. This is something that I really enjoy – connecting with candidates and clients and understanding the nuances of each individual client and vacancy. There’s never a dull moment in recruitment and it’s constantly changing and evolving.
- What’s your favorite industry to recruit in? I enjoy working with clients in the tech sector as it tends to have an entrepreneurial feel and many of clients within this sector tend to look for employees that are creative and able to think outside of the box. I also enjoy the financial services and funds sectors as this is where I started out many years ago!
- You dial the phone, who is the ideal person who could answer your call? Well I’m a big fan of the Huffington Post so I’d love to have the opportunity to speak with Arianna Huffington herself – very interesting lady! Or my ideal candidate is someone who truly knows what they are looking for in their next role and in their next employer.
- Tell me something interesting about you? I am the only female in my house as we have two young sons and in my spare time you will find me playing Spider Man and Captain America figure games and trying to avoid being hit by Star War Lightsabers! I’m also a qualified Career, Personal and Executive Coach since 2009 and am very passionate about helping people to help themselves.
