Sharon Aires MIRP
Working and living in Rugby all of my life, I feel I have a good understanding of the recruitment market in and around the area, and with over 26 years within recruitment covering business support under my belt I feel I have built up a solid number of clients who believe and understand our culture within the Caraires family.
My role within the ‘Caraires family’ is to specialise in Temporary and Contract placements within business support, and I offer a friendly and supportive experience for both Temporary Worker and Employer. I understand it can be a daunting process when seeking a new role - either temporary or permanent and always offer a welcoming, honest, friendly approach – you will always receive a good cup of coffee/tea on arrival and useful, informative advice to apply to the next exciting chapter in your working life.
I am a graduate from the University of Central England (known as Birmingham polytechnic at the time) and I have had the pleasure of working with some great sales managers and teams working at Director level for both independent and corporate recruitment organisations. ‘Treat people as you want to be treated yourself’ is a favourite personal maxim.
My role in the ‘Caraires family’ is to specialise in the placement of candidates seeking permanent employment and to support our Employers to hit their strategic objectives by recruiting talented individuals.
Having spent 22 very enjoyable years in recruitment throughout the ranks covering both a UK branch network and Eire and meeting some very interesting people along the way, I have had the privilege of contributing to the success of multiple corporate, public sector and independent companies, my role within the 'Caraires family' is to acquire talent for our many diverse clients by understanding the requirements of both client and candidate.
Effective communication and teamwork are particular bywords of mine to be applied to all aspects of every task
Senior Recruitment Consultant
Working in Customer Support and Sales for over a decade has helped equip me with the tool kit I need to partner my candidates on their journey.
My role within the 'Caraires Family' focuses on the temporary and contract side of the business, mainly specialising in the Logistics, Automotive and Customer Service sectors. I am very passionate about the unique experience I provide to Candidates and Clients.
'After being out of full time employment for 5 years raising my three children I applied for a vacancy through Caraires and didn't hold out much hope of getting a response. However Damien was in touch with me very quickly and helped me realise despite my time off, I was still a very valuable potential employee with lots of experience and plenty to offer an employer. I went along to an interview that same week and am now in full time employment. Everyone at Caraires has been very helpful, kind and professional, I can't recommend them highly enough!'
After graduating with a degree in Graphic Design and New Media I started my corporate career by joining one of the largest telecommunications organisations in the world. I quickly forged a successful career in the Customer Management sector – leading teams to deliver world class service aligned to the business needs, I was also involved in recruitment at all levels.
Following my five years of experience in technical and specialist recruitment, my role within the 'Caraires Family' focuses on both temporary and permanent customer service recruitment.
Coming from a Warehouse & Logistics background, I spent over six years as Operations Manager for a large fulfilment warehouse, specialising in the import and export of shipments across the world.
I have joined the 'Caraires Family' to focus on temporary and contract placements, and with my past experience and knowledge I hope to add to the company's success and offer both candidate and client a friendly but professional service.
Having qualified as a Chartered Accountant I worked in practice as a Senior Audit Manager dealing with a wide variety of businesses – both large and small. Following that I worked at Director level within a large Midlands charity for almost 10 years. The charity relocated their Central Office at the end of 2016 and I took the opportunity to move on to something new.
Having worked with Caraires as a client in my previous role I was very impressed with the way they work and the standard of service that they offer so I was very pleased to be offered the opportunity to work with the team. My role within the “Caraires family” is to manage all things financial – ensuring that the accounting function works smoothly and providing the Directors with the information which they require in order to develop and grow the business going forward.
Since completing my studies in 2013, I have been building a theatrical production and hires company. During this time I have developed skills in marketing and graphic design, so my role within the 'Caraires Family' is predominantly marketing: ensuring our clients receive the best possible exposure in terms of advertising their positions, and continuing to reach out to the wide variety of candidates we work with.
