Serving Up: Dervla Neary

An Appetiser

Originally worked in Childcare then I moved to Canada and recruited internally for the biggest construction company in North America for almost 2 years.
I worked for nearly 3 years for Hays Recruitment in Sydney and Wellington NZ recruiting electricians.

I joined TRC in 2019 and am a part of the Public Sector team where I look after professional / technical recruitment for NSW State Government.

On the SCM0007 we are 3rd biggest supplier in Category E and top 10 supplier for NSW Health.

My Secret Sauce

I am thanked regularly by my candidates for going above and beyond for them. I have been told they are very appreciative of treating them with respect and guiding and supporting them clearly through the recruitment process. I can be professional to get the job done and yet be friendly and understanding that each person’s situation is different. This helps me get to know the person and know they will fit in with a current team.

My current contractors have mentioned that they like how I am not just about business and have got to know them on a personal level. I will call them to see how they or their family are doing.

My dad is a builder so having grown up on building sites helping out from a young age I really enjoy recruiting in the Professional and Technical space as a lot of the roles relate to the construction industry. This also gives me great knowledge of the industry for my clients in understand their recruitment needs.
