Title: Senior Recruitment Consultant
Region: Skellefteå, Sweden
Time with company: Since January 2023
What do you do at Energy Resourcing?
I started at Energy Resourcing at the beginning of this year as a Senior Recruitment Consultant. I was the second person ever located in Sweden with the business! Since then, I’ve worked on learning about all the different engineering roles that I’m looking to fill. I’m steadily getting there.
How did you get into your current career?
I started out in finance years back but found, after a few years, that I enjoy interacting with people more than numbers, so I made a career change. Around the new millennium, I entered the recruitment industry; it was love at first sight. I’ve had the privilege to work in companies that has offered development and interesting opportunities. Which I feel is the beauty of the recruitment industry.
Are you working on any specific projects at the moment?
In Sweden, we are mainly working with Worley to fill their different projects with relevant resources. At the moment this means filling several roles.
What’s the best part of your role?
The interactions with individuals. Having the privilege to be able to help candidates find a new job as well as being a part of helping organisations in finding talent who will make a positive impact and difference. I will never grow tired of placing good-quality candidates with our clients.
What is the most challenging part of your role?
Given the complexity of the projects, it’s often hard to find candidates with the right skill set for the required roles.
Any words of advice for young graduates?
Be a professional, but don’t forget to have fun. And develop your networking skills!
What do you like to do outside of work?
Since I live in Sweden, it can depend on what time of the year it is, but something that is consistent is me working out in the mornings – CrossFit mostly. In Wintertime I love to downhill ski. In summer I enjoy being outside to have a picnic or barbecue or just chill in the sun. I like to travel with my friends and/or family. I get my energy from meeting and socializing with other people, so hanging out with people I love and sharing a meal or drink is something I enjoy very much as well.
What was the last book you read?
‘Bear Town’ (Björnstad) by Fredrik Backman
Film you watched?
John Wick 4.
Music you listened to?
I listen to music all the time, so it’s hard to be specific. My taste in music ranges from 90s boybands, RnB, pop, dance and rock. Both older music as well as more contemporary.
