Having joined the recruitment team at HR Search in September it’s still fresh in my mind all the trials and tribulations that come with changing jobs, but the benefits will always outweigh any of the challenges. Trust me!

Don’t get me wrong, there’s always a settling in period, I’ve had to wrap my head around new systems and procedures which is always fun. Most importantly you’ll need to get to know a whole new team of people, everyone at HR Search has been so unbelievably welcoming. They’ve managed to surprise me every day, their energy and passion for what they do is unwavering. When you join a new company it’s so important you take the time to get to know your new colleagues. It’s been said to take as much as six months to settle into a new role but if you’ve made the right step forward in your career this time will be worth it. And remember, everyone goes through the same experiences!

It’s been an exciting few months, already I’ve met with loads of fantastic HR professionals and was lucky enough to attend the Ibec HR Summit which took place in Croke Park. Next week myself and Caoilinn are heading to Maynooth University to speak in front of a group of second year students currently taking their HRM module. Our aim is to give them an insight into the labour market and in particular how students should strategically approach and navigate the recruitment process.

Last week we officially turned on the Christmas Lights at our offices (the Rockefeller Tree has nothing on us)!! Friday night saw us all heading out for our Christmas party which proved to be a great night. I’m really looking forward to seeing what next year in HR Search will bring!

If like me, you too are looking to make a career move in the coming months but are unsure as to the next steps you should take… we can help! At HR Search we are dedicated to matching the right people with the right jobs.

The first step is to have a call with us to chat through things and then ideally meet in person either at our offices on Fitzwilliam Square or we can equally come meet you somewhere for a coffee. This way we’ll really be able to get to know you and most importantly get a clear idea of what you’re looking for from your next role!

So, if you feel like making a move in the coming months please don’t hesitate to get in touch I’d love to hear from you.
