What made you join Summit Recruitment & Search?

Around 4 years ago, I saw a vacancy advertised. Having a background in HR, I was excited at the opportunity to work for one of the top Recruitment Agencies. I was able to research on the company and its operations and was immediately impressed by the thoroughness in the recruitment process and also the success rate of their placements. I knew I wanted to be part of the Summit Team, so I applied…and the rest is history.

What does your day entail?

Well, are we talking Mondays or Saturdays? 😀 my typical day at Summit entails attending to clients’ needs, interviewing, shortlisting and of course advising candidates where need be… you know? Recruitment stuff.

What’s the most enjoyable part of your day?

Walking into a beautiful space early in the morning is easily the best part of my day. There is a wonderful garden that provides just the kind of ambience that gears me up to start my day. However, I also enjoy getting to interact with candidates with different personalities, experiences and backgrounds. And getting to learn something new every day, both from my colleagues and the candidates.

Tell us a little bit about yourself (hobbies, likes, dislikes, fun facts)

I’m a lover of nature… well, mostly… Some insects and creepy crawlies scare the daylight out of me, and I would outrun a professional marathoner just to get away from one.

I enjoy a little bit of both the outdoors and indoors, a mix of physical activities and chilled hangouts with close friends.

I live by the quote “don’t let success get to your head and don’t let failure get to your heart.”
