Recruitment Administrator

I am the first point of contact in the Nova office, where I support candidates through the process of registering for our services and ensuring they are paired up with the consultant best placed to assist in their career journey.

My own career journey within HR began here at Nova in 2020 where I joined the team as the second “Tomorrow’s HR Talent Apprentice”, a 24-month rotational program that gave me hands-on experience across recruitment, immigration, and generalist human resources. As part of this apprenticeship, I also successfully obtained my Associate’s Professional in Human Resources (aPHR) certification and my Certificate in Human Resource Management from the Cayman Islands Society of Human Resource Professionals (CISHRP).

In 2022 I successfully completed the apprenticeship program and have recently taken up a new position as Recruitment Administrator within the Nova team. I am enthusiastic in continuing to support the Nova team, ensuring the recruitment process for our clients and candidates runs smoothly.

Why do you love your work?

Each day, I interact and work with individuals to help them achieve their career goals and find work they too love.

What did you want to be when you grew up?

I had a long internal struggle between becoming a pilot or a fry-cook like my hero Spongebob. Luckily neither of those panned out.

What is your guilty pleasure?

I often think about the embarrassment that I would face if someone I knew were to see my music playlist. They must never know.
