Gabbi Trotter – The power of humility, personal branding and meetups – why your recruitment should be focused on long-term gains rather than quick wins

The key takeaways from this episode are as follows:

  • You’ll learn about how to create a pitch for a new market, including the key things to impress executives/decision-makers when presenting your ideas
  • The importance of maximising what you know, and understanding the power of humility when building out a new desk
  • Honesty and integrity with candidates – and why this will get you the long term gains instead of focussing on a quick win
  • How to start building your personal brand – specifically if you work in a geographical patch
  • Management: understanding motivations of those in your team, catering to multiple personalities and how to manage your time whilst caring for others

This week I’m joined by Gabbi Trotter from Searchability.

She started working in recruitment at 19, working her way up the ranks as a Resourcer, before becoming a full Consultant and now – managing her own team! 

It was great to sit down with her and delve deep into her career so far, talking about what has made her successful as a consultant, and now as a leader.
