Hi, Maiya. So, tell us, what has been your career leading up to SmartCo?

After passing my BTECS with flying colours I actively chose to enter the world of full-time work rather than go to university. I soon found a position with a small recruitment company. This first role gave me a wide range of essential skills and experience. However, in time I felt the need to spread my wings and I was overjoyed to land this role at SmartCo.

What is your new role and what are the key responsibilities?

My new role as Project Resource Consultant includes the responsibilities of:

  • Talent identification for partnership clients
  • Candidate screening to qualify credibility and suitability for employment against specific requirements
  • Maintaining a pipeline of directly sourced candidates (Talent Pooling)
  • Managing the entire recruiting life cycle.

What are you enjoying most since starting?

I joined in mid-November and the whole team have been welcoming, encouraging and approachable. I particularly enjoy how the team is diverse in their characters and backgrounds and nothing is ever too much trouble when I am asking for information or support. There is a culture of professional trust which in turn makes me want to strive for the company and for myself!

What are your interests and hobbies?

Going to the gym is an essential after a day of meetings and lap-top interaction! I love to travel and socialise but equally love to return to home comforts and my dog.

Lastly, tell us a fun fact about yourself…

I played football with Brentford girls from the age of 10 – 13!
