Laura Phillips - Recruitment and Training Manager

No two days are ever the same!

Laura joined the Wise Recruitment Group almost 3 years ago and hasn't looked back!

Laura started in recruitment in 1996. She worked her way from Office Temporary Consultant to Industrial Consultant, to a successful Permanent Recruitment Consultant and then on to Branch Manager.

Having successfully managed a team, to billing almost half a million turnover, the Directors' of her previous Company asked her to take on more of a training and mentoring role. Laura loved it! Whilst successfully managing her branch, she assisted with the training of new starters from Consultants to Managers, and here began the training bug!

As all good recruiters do, Laura was looking for leads one day, and looking through the web pages, when she came across an advert with the Wise Recruitment Group for the Recruitment and Training Manager position. In Laura's words the role "ticked all of her career boxes". She applied and the rest is history.

Laura's passion for recruitment is well known and she loves the role that she carries out. "I have that rare opportunity of finding a potential Candidate, speaking to them for the first time, to meeting them and thinking "Oh my word, they are fantastic!" I offer them the role and then get to train the new recruit, giving them all the tools they need to become a well rounded and successful Consultant. The next stage is watching them become an integral member of their team and be successful at placing Temporary and Permanent Candidates into their local market place."

Asked why Laura has worked in recruitment for the past 18 years:

"I have a real love of recruitment. You never know what's going to happen on any one day. The variety is vast. You learn something new every day."

Asked why Laura works for the Wise Recruitment Group:

"I like the fact that we are independent and that we are a large independent. It's great to have a full understanding of the whole Company, to share the vision and to know every person that is employed in the Company."

"My role allows me to have that wonderful feeling of being able to contribute daily, a positive influence within the business. There's nothing quite like it!"
