Emma started with Wavelength in 2008 as a Para Consultant for the Specialist team. After 11 months, Emma was promoted into a recruiter role and she continues to recruit for a number of permanent roles across a range of specialties.
How would you describe your work style?
I am very organised and methodical, my diligent work style fits well at Wavelength because of the large volume of work we complete each week – you have to be very focused.
What are your current goals?
Building my desk up to be as successful as it can be is really important. The current portfolio I have been working on is challenging but I’m confident I will exceed my targets.
What are the key activities which you usually undertake in your working day?
I divide my time between our clients (hospitals) and candidates (doctors). This involves business development and accepting briefs from hospitals together with taking doctors through the application and screening process.
What do you believe are the key things which contribute to your success?
Building relationships with hospitals and doctors, the more I can understand what they want and why the better I can manage their expectations - you can’t be afraid to say “Can you explain that to me please?”.
What do you enjoy most about working at Wavelength?
Everything. I enjoy my job but the best thing about coming to work every day is the people. Gotta love the Wavies.
