We pride ourselves on the value that experience and different approaches can bring. She joined us from a global recruitment organisation, and she can't wait to work in a smaller environment, where her ideas and creativity can be given space and life in a team that has real passion and drive for doing the job well.
Whilst we already 'do office staff', Sasha’s understanding of office dynamics will enable us to make even better matches. Her approach is to truly understand the team fit, knowing how much impact the right or wrong person can have in an office space, from a social and business perspective. Top Job's bespoke approach will allow her to spend the time she wants, getting to know each client and candidate in order to get the fit exactly right. That way, people tend to stay in post and grow into the new teams. She hopes that new vacancies are created by their promotion rather than people leaving because they aren’t happy!
An office team is vital to the success of any business, requiring teamwork that promotes hard work and loyalty. You need to ensure that new additions to a team fit in with the business and colleagues which often mirrors the success of the business. I feel that close knit relationships motivate employees and align them to work harder, cooperate and be supportive of one another. My specialism is finding the perfect match for the business and the individual to promote growth and progression for both parties. Her old slogan was "Don't let your recruitment be risky; choose Sasha Comiskey!" We just know she'll live up to it!
