Lynsey Shortland

Recruitment Consultant

I joined the Derby branch in August 2016, I recruit for temporary and permanent roles within the commercial sector in Derby and the surrounding areas. I started my career as a Resourcer and this led me to fall into the role of Recruitment Consultant; it’s the best decision I ever made!

My passion is rooted with building strong relationships with my clients in order to understand their values and requirements, so the perfect candidate can be found. I enjoy listening to candidates, then recommending solutions to best fit their desires.
