Introducing the newest member of our team

Posted on: 15/01/2020

 

We’d like to introduce you all to the newest member of the re:find team: meet Carly O’Connell, our Interim and Executive search specialist.

 

Carly has been working within the HR space for over 12 years. Many of those years focused on partnering clients in their search for exceptional contractors, who can deliver on HR and business transformation projects.

“I operate in a consultative manner and will challenge your requirements, to ensure all solutions are considered. I pride myself on understanding both my client and my candidate equally and delivering the brief in an honest and fun way.”

 

So, Carly, why re:find?

re:find have offered me the opportunity to work with a team who share my values: being honest and helpful, as well as looking at securing long-term genuine relationships, not just short-term wins.

The team at re:find are all experienced in their respective fields and I have spent several years learning about them as recruiters from those in our shared network. I was excited to join the team after hearing such good things about them. Knowing how credible they are, it made sense to me to join and collaborate.

As a seasoned HR recruiter, I know that cultural fit is hugely important. I have operated in many industry sectors and the best results come from matching the person to the culture not just the cv to a tick list.  By really getting to know the person behind the cv and taking the time to allow candidates to get to know me all helps in building a partnership based on honesty.

 

What is it like being a part of team re:find?

On first impressions, re:find are actually what they said they were in my interview process, knowledgeable, creative, credible and fun. This is not the usual stuffy status quo search firm. They allow nuance and obscure requests to be the “norm” and enable people to be genuine and honest to ensure they can truly match a brief.  They have a transparency that invites both candidates and clients to visualise the process of a brief and this is also reflected in the transparency the team give to each other’s campaigns and movements. I have found this to allow real flexible working with my wellbeing and professional needs being considered and met.

I have been pleasantly surprised by the amount of resource that is given to the team to ensure we have an exceptional reach to the very best candidates both on and off the market.

The approach is different: you won’t see us shouting about our vacancies online, or spending hours sifting through job boards. What we do is we establish genuine, long-standing relationships with clients who value us and work in partnership with us, rather than having what is simply a transactional relationship with them.
