What I Do
I am the Technology, Manufacturing and Engineering recruitment consultant here at Atlantic Resource. I use my Psychology Degree and research skills to find the ideal candidate and client. Understanding both the needs of the client and the candidate is my main focus so that the perfect job can be found and completed by the right person.

I have joined the expanding business development and temp team at Atlantic Resource. Our desks are refreshing and diverse, so resourcing candidates that I think are perfect for our client’s needs is my main priority at the moment. With my previous extensive experience working within retail and hospitality, I am adapting all of my skills to cater to this sector.
I love the refreshing open environment of the office and the welcoming nature of the staff ever since day one. Even though I’m new to the team, it’s crystal clear that Atlantic Resource care about everyone that they work with and engage with their clients on a personal yet professional level that is incredibly admiring.
Having grown up in Hong Kong, I’ve spent a lot of time travelling and so when I’m not in the office managing the desk; I’m often out and about with my camera – an interest I discovered whilst abroad. I’m also avid gig-goer, and often attend music events. I hope to be hitting more deadlines with my reviews on the side. As a guitarist and flautist myself, I enjoy immersing myself in all aspects of music. I have also just completed my second Mandarin course, a skill that I hope to eventually utilize.
