Meet the Recruitment Expert: David Glavin
As part of our monthly activities, we would like to offer you the chance to meet some of our most valued recruitment experts. This month we would like to introduce you to David Glavin, a talented, insightful and valued senior consultant.
I began my role with AA Euro Group in May 2018 as a Senior Recruitment Consultant, having worked in recruitment for five years. I have been taking on new challenges since then.
My favourite part about the job is when candidates are placed in a job they really like, but I also enjoy meeting clients from new businesses and building on new and existing relationships.
What made me want to start working in Euro Executive Recruitment originally was the core team and the camaraderie in the business. We can all have a laugh in the office. It’s a progressive company, we are always looking at new ways of doing things more efficiently and ways to improve.
I feel I bring value to the company as I cover a wide variety of positions outside of our core business in Construction & Engineering. Having spent a number of years recruiting in the UK before coming home to Cork I bring my experience from there to the table also.
When I started in recruitment, it was transferrable to my sales background but more people-focused. I enjoy getting a good understanding of what matters to a candidate when they are considering a job move and matching that with a client’s requirements.
The most enjoyable part about the role is the diversity. One day I can be getting to know the future Financial Controller of a multinational company, the next I could be discussing upcoming projects with software developers.
Like the rest of the team, I’m a sports addict… not really – unless you consider poker to be a sport.
I studied BIS in CIT until I realised I didn’t really like coding, so I changed to Business.
When I left college, I started up my own business in the UK, in which we sold bespoke party packages to holidaymakers in some of Europe’s top holiday destinations.
My ambition now is to further diversify my recruitment skill set, I enjoy covering niche roles and expanding my offering.
