Rachel Eggelton AIRP – Principal Consultant
What made you choose a career in recruitment?
After completing University I was unsure on what I wanted to do. I knew I didn’t want to continue with Psychology. I had a couple of friends working in recruitment and they were doing very well for themselves! They said that it was a great career move and it was the type of job that the more you put in, the more you get out, so I thought this was something I could progress with.
What do you enjoy most about your role?
My job is very rewarding; not only financially. When you get hear from a candidate and they are so positive about their experience with you it makes the hard work worth it.
What is your proudest achievement so far?
I’ve just won our company’s Employee of the Quarter, which is just incredible especially after being here for less than a year.
What’s the best thing about working for Compass Associates?
I love my team; even though we manage our own desks everyone works together. The management are also fantastic; my manager Stuart Cousins is so supportive which I personally have found to be so important as I was new to recruitment.
What are you passionate about outside of work?
Travelling; I absolutely love visiting new places.
