CONSULTANT BLOG - "From sports coaching to recruitment - what has my career change brought me? " by Drew Burkin - Associate Consultant (Patient and Critical Care Specialist)

What better way to review my time in recruitment so far than by telling people what I’m doing and why I’m doing it?

 

What I do?

I work as a specialist in the medical device industry, specifically in wound care, critical care and orthotics. I work within the fastest, developing and most innovative industry in the world. The companies I work with developing technology that saves lives, changes lives for the better and continue to find new ways to do it every day.

 

Where do I come into all of this?

I come to innovate and develop, exactly what the companies I partner with seek to do. Companies are built on people. People have ideas. People develop new products. They build it, they sell it and they ensure that it's being implemented to its maximum potential. My job is to find those people. The game changers. You want that one person in your company - from the minute of starting, make a difference. Not just because they are amazing at what they do, but because they fit your company’s values and ethos. You want someone to arrive and feel like they've always been there. THAT is where I come in.

I find the superstars.

 

Why am I doing it?

I joined recruitment from a competing sports coaching background, I saw similarities in recruitment and sport. No two games are the same, in the same way, no two jobs are the same. As soon as you think you have figured out the master plan in sport, I think you’re finished. You must constantly adapt with a game, your ability to adapt and manage a situation change is your measure as a coach or a player. I have always loved that about sport and it’s a challenge that I am enjoying in my work every day.

 

Why will I keep doing it?

Working with people, managing difficult situations and constantly striving to do things in better ways are things that have always motivated me. Projectus, for me, is built on those principals. Helping people with things they need, that I can provide. Stabilising an unstable situation to cause positive change and always trying to do it better than I did last time.

As long as I am doing that, I’ll love what I’m doing.
