Ask our team: Why EMEA?

Meriel Graham - Associate Director

After completing a Masters degree in Occupational Psychology at the University of Nottingham I worked in the East Midlands market in the UK as a recruiter for 5 years. Firstly in high street office support recruitment before specialising in finance recruitment. I had not been actively looking for a new role as I was performing well in my role, but I was approached regarding a position with EMEA and I was keen to explore the role in more detail as the opportunity to work in an international market appealed to me.

Having met Paul Toms, Richard Bailey and the team at EMEA I was convinced that a role here would be the right move for me. Everyone was driven, professional and approached recruitment with a high level of integrity, which I believe is an important quality in this industry.
At EMEA I have had the opportunity to have regular European travel and work with some of the most internationally recognised businesses in the world, predominantly at their headquarter locations. Due to the nature of the clients we are working with and the high calibre of candidates they are looking for we need to work to an extremely high standard. EMEA have enabled me to develop the recruitment skills I already had to a higher level in order to exceed the expectations of both our clients and candidates alike. This has enabled my professional development, including a promotion since I joined the business, as well as financial rewards which I would not have been able to achieve in many other recruitment environments.

The company is continuing to grow and develop in new fields and locations and we are always striving for continuous improvement so I am confident of my longer term future and development with the EMEA Recruitment.

John Byrne - Manager - Operations Division

After graduating with a BA (Hons) in Financial Services I undertook a career path in the Financial Services industry for the first nine years, here I was able to grow into management roles and explore the business world on international levels. My passion for over achieving against targets, mentoring and leading teams naturally gravitated me towards recruitment to utilise my people skills further.

Having always held a strong interest in Engineering and General Manufacturing businesses, I joined a large global recruiter to specialise in this area. Following successful promotion in 18 months I then led a successful team for over five years. I was approached by Richard Bailey and Paul Toms about setting up an Operations division in EMEA Recruitment as it offered a strong synergy with some of their key clients. The positive culture of the business really stood out, the environment at EMEA Recruitment maintains the focus towards achieving goals, surpassing customer service levels but equally allows each individual to manage their business in their own professional style.

The ability to lead the Operations division on an international scale, with a great balance between European travel with no limitations on which clients you are able to work with really enhances the value I can add to my processes. I am confident that as the business continues to grow and build upon a phenomenal reputation on the continent, that the career opportunities for the future remain very exciting.

Izabela Darmstetter - Research Manager

I have over 10 years of experience in recruitment and joined EMEA Recruitment in April 2009.

During my career I have recruited across variety of functions including Finance, Sales & Marketing, Supply Chain, HR and IT in Europe, America and Asia.

I have known Paul Toms, the founder and owner of EMEA Recruitment, since 2005 when we started working together for a London based international recruitment firm. I have always admired Paul for his recruitment expertise and outstanding commercial skills so it did not take me long to say yes when he offered me a role in his newly established company.

In my first role at EMEA Recruitment I held a position of an Account Manager and I had opportunity to lead finance & accounting search projects for globally recognised companies predominantly in Switzerland and the Netherlands but also other global locations. Having worked with some on the top businesses in their fields I really learnt a lot and further developed my skills in managing relationships with candidates and clients. My hard work was rewarded in 2012 when I was promoted to a Research Manager and given a new challenge of establishing a multilingual research/ headhunting team.

I have seen the company continuously growing and expanding new divisions to meet the changing market needs. What has not changed though is strive for excellence and high quality of work that results in many candidates being recommended to us and repeat business given by our clients.

Sian Poneskis - Consultant

After completing my University degree in Modern Foreign Languages I was really unsure as to what I wanted to do and where I could see myself. I had always considered translation/interpreting yet as time went by I realised perhaps I should direct my strong interpersonal and communicative skills toward something different. With previous sales experience it’s surprising that I never really considered international recruitment. I consider myself to be lucky enough to have stumbled across this opportunity.

As soon as I met the team here at EMEA it was clear to me that Recruitment is a thriving sector to be a part of.Everyone was friendly, open and more importantly driven professionals which really attracted me towards this position.I have settled into the company with such ease thanks to the team that I’m now a part of.

I am thrilled that with EMEA I now have the opportunity to further utilise my language skills and am able to converse in French and German to both Swiss and European candidates alike every single day.

With EMEA having such an international presence in the Recruitment market combined with a truly great team I’m certain I made the right choice and I’m looking forward to building my career here.
