I started recruiting for the Hotel and Catering industry back in 1989. I have seen many changes over these years. But I have stayed true to my core values of honesty, fair play, integrity and loyalty.
I enjoy meeting my clients and candidates face to face, getting to know them and their needs. Building dynamic relationships from the first moment we engage. Even getting to know families and friends too. With me, you are not a number!! I love matching personalities with personalities, knowing a good fit.
Emotional intelligence is so important to me. Maybe this is why candidates become clients then candidates again. There is a human side to all things, even recruitment, hence I have built a reputation on real human connection and a drive to help those I come into contact with to find fulfilment happiness and success.
I really do love what I do, maybe that is why I am still here and going strong.
Back in 2016, I embarked on a new chapter with Maria Logan Recruitment, marking the start of a vibrant journey after eight enjoyable years in the hospitality sector. Joining MLR wasn’t just a career move for me; it was a commitment to redefining the standards within the world of recruitment. My primary focus has always been to offer an experience that stands unrivalled, benefiting both our valued candidates and clients.
Throughout my time at MLR, I’ve woven my personal values of honesty, integrity, and loyalty into the fabric of my profession.
