• What made you join Summit Recruitment & Search?
I came to Summit a year ago looking for career development. I found out about Summit online and I was greatly impressed by the team setup and felt that it would be a great opportunity for me to enhance my HR skills. Being a fresh graduate from university, I have been able to gain a lot of skills on people management, recruitment, talent management and head hunting.

My day has a variety of duties and responsibilities required to be performed in a timely and orderly fashion. These include;

• Open, sort and distribute incoming correspondence
• Perform data entry and scan documents
• Assist in resolving any administrative problems
• Answer calls from customers regarding their inquiries
• Schedule and coordinate meetings, appointments and travel arrangements for staff.
• Recruiting, selecting, orienting candidates.
• Client relationship management.
• Handling legal division of the company such as permits among others.
• What’s the most enjoyable part of your day?
In my time spent in Summit I have come across various personalities from different cultures in and out of Kenya. I find it fascinating learning about new cultures; Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda, South Africa, Ethiopia, Tanzania, East Africa and other further afield countries. It is hugely satisfying to carry out a head hunt or executive search for a position and place the right person into the right company. I enjoy meeting different individuals and being able to provide much needed assistance in their career growth. Summit offers a melting pot of cultures that allows career development not only locally but internationally.
• Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I am a protective and humble lady who gives her all when it comes to life and work. My love for cooking is known widely (from a survey conducted by my colleagues ha ha ha). I enjoy reinventing everyday recipes to create mouth watering dishes that leave nothing but beautiful explosions of flavours in your mouth and heart. In addition to that I love shopping and visiting new places.
