“I’d recommend Karen very highly as a recruiter as she was able to understand ‘gaming’ very quickly, with no prior knowledge of the industry. With her many years of HR generalist experience, Karen was also willing to offer her opinion on areas of HR outside of her recruitment remit. Karen is easy going, hard working, dedicated, self-disciplined and able to hit the ground running.”

Provided OnStream with their fluctuating staffing requirements, and developed a suite of assessment and training criteria.

Her experience and knowledge of HR recruitment, including selection, recruitment, induction and training was second to none. In addition, her ability to work at all levels from CEO to shop floor and the attention to detail she employed on every assignment was an enormous asset in achieving challenging targets, both in terms of timescales and budget.”
