In recruitment we talk a lot about transferable skills and you might be surprised how many recruiters have made the most of some unlikely previous careers. It doesn’t matter what your previous background might be - dancer, cricketer or actor - certain skills are most definitely transferable.
From a career treading the boards, to dancing up a storm and bowling out Indian cricket sensation Cheteshwar Pujara, those working in recruitment are drawn from incredibly diverse backgrounds.
In this issue we speak with three professionals about what they did before they started in recruitment, how they ended up in the sector and the skills they have transferred into their new careers.
If you have had an interesting career journey to recruitment, we would love to hear from you. Drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
