Name: Brittany Fisher
Position: Senior Consultant
Time in role: 2 years
Tell us a bit about your career to date and how you got into recruitment.
Just like pretty much everyone I speak to, I just sort of fell into the industry after University. Studying Psychology, I knew that I wanted to work with people… 4 years later, here we are!
What’s your favourite thing about working at Fetch?
My PA/inside eye Lauren (she’s actually a Consultant on my team, but I just take advantage of her).
What’s one thing you wish people knew about recruitment?
It is not just writing a job ad and then flicking across candidates! There are sooo many facets to our job, in any one day I can be: an HR Manager, a brand manager, a counsellor, an administrator, a career coach, and a contract writer. A LOT goes into attracting and securing top talent.
Number 1 career highlight to date:
Getting to literally kick our Director, John Bell, off the yacht at last years’ Christmas Party
Your life mantra is:
Don’t be afraid to stand up for what you believe in. Not everyone will like you for it, but if everyone had the same opinion, we would all stand still!
Which celebrity would play you in the movie of your life?
Blake Lively (but only when she was on ‘A Simple Favour’ and ‘Gossip Girl’).
If you were on death row, what would be your last meal?
My grandma’s chocolate mousse for sure!
Name 3 things you are grateful for right now.
My Toy Cavoodle Colin
My supportive friends and family
Tell us a #FunFact about you!
I don’t look or act like it, but I grew up roughing it on a Beef and Sheep farm in clean, green NZ!
One job I’m recruiting for RIGHT NOW is:
Document Controller for an International Engineering Consultancy
