Nikki Farmer has joined Orb Recruitment as a consultant focused on the healthcare sector.
She has previous experience working in the care industry. At ORB, she will be responsible for sourcing new candidates to work in healthcare assistant, senior carer and nursing roles, as well as liaising with care homes to help meet their staffing needs.
Nikki said: “I’ve found my experience in care really helps with working on the care side of recruitment. ORB stands out from the crowd because we have a good team and the staff provided to care homes are vetted very carefully. From working in care in the past, I know how important this is.
“I’ve also just started learning the business development side of things in my new role so will soon be working on bringing in new care homes to work with us.
“I’m enjoying the fast pace of working and, as I’ve never worked in recruitment before, I’m enjoying the challenge and learning, which is why I wanted the change in the first place.”
Vanessa Ogden, Director and Head of Care at ORB Recruitment, said: “We have a strong track record of working in the care industry and Nikki’s firsthand experience in the sector will help her find the perfect candidates for our care clients.”
