Sam’s strengths lie in her interviewing skills – listening and questioning to fully understand a candidates’ experience.

What is the best part of your role?

I enjoy interviewing candidates to truly understand the nature of their role and experience.  Being a good listener helps to draw the most from the candidates I talk with and ensure I thoroughly understand their experience.

What values do you look for in a candidate?

Possessing a can-do approach and a willingness to learn.  Making the move to a new company requires both for a successful hire.

What would be your best career advice?

Work hard, be willing to learn and always adapt. A career will involve many changes along the way (big or small) and having a willingness to adapt to changing circumstances will help.

Can you name one person who has really inspired you and why?

That is a hard question. Many different people inspire me for different reasons, but I tend to prefer those who have triumphed in the face of adversity.

What do you do when you’re not working?

I like to stay fit and have taken up yoga in the last two years. Good for both body and mind! I enjoy spending time with my family and mini-poodle. I also enjoy watching football! I also dream of owning a property in Majorca… maybe one day.
