Meet the Recruitment Expert 2020: Kevin Hallissey
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 Kevin Hallissey, a tenured and valued member of AA Euro Group. Kevin has grown substantially in his role since joining us almost four years ago.
KEVIN HALLISSEY, SENIOR RECRUITMENT CONSULTANT
I have been working with AA Euro Executive since October 2016, so nearly four years. I came into the company as a Resourcer before becoming a Recruitment Consultant. After several months in this role, I was promoted to a Senior Consultant – the position I now hold.
My favourite part about the role is talking to various people each day, while also linking people to large scale projects throughout the country. Euro Executive Recruitment stood out to me because of the business/plan ethos the company portrayed when I joined it as a startup. Also, my father works in construction and I felt I could make a positive impact within an industry I was familiar with.
I think I improved the company’s productivity in terms of building on my personal relationships and incorporating them into the company’s clientele listing – who would now be considered key clients to the business. I wanted to get involved in recruitment as I get great job satisfaction from putting someone in a job they enjoy. I also enjoy driving around town seeing large scale projects, and knowing I placed someone into one of those positions. The most enjoyable thing about working here is the culture and the bond within the office dynamic.
I would consider myself very into sports, I thoroughly enjoy the GAA and Football. I do also enjoy outdoor events, such as sight-seeing and exploring Irelands hidden gems.
I began my studies doing a Level 7 in Sport Recreation & Leisure before moving onto doing a Masters in Marketing in CIT.
My future ambitions would be to continue to further develop through the organisation, having a larger impact on the business. I see myself working here long term.
