This week on Strivin & Thrivin, we speak with Matt Woodard, TA Leader.
Matt’s has been with Slalom Build for two years when we recorded the podcast and has been in recruitment for 15, starting his career in a small boutique agency in Wellington, New Zealand after immigrating from the UK.
“I think resilience and hard work are the other key things. And as much as I love dealing with people, sometimes that adds huge levels of complexity and challenge. So, I think the ability to sort of grin and bear things sometimes is a pretty important element as well.”
“I can find myself getting bored easily in roles, so I think the fact that I can get challenges that are longer-term, the fact there is a chance to actually help build and create and influence, and positively direct the future home for a company, I think is a big risk responsibility, but it’s also a fantastic challenge.”
“I would say if there’s a desire to do it, I think it’s a great career move, but I think it’s just understanding what it is, why it is you’re wanting to do that…it’s really important that you continue to bring your best, then that you are delivering the best kind of quality candidates.”
