Before becoming part of the Michael Page Shenzhen team, I was trained as a materials engineer in the UK and worked in a London-based engineering consultancy firm. Having the academic foundation as well as hands-on industry experience has helped me to quickly fit into the role as a consultant within the engineering and manufacturing team four years ago. My industry knowledge also helped me earn credibility with clients and in particular, gave me an advantage in recruiting highly specialised positions.
I have also been involved with developing and training to raise the level of technical knowledge within the team, which has further leveraged my previous experience and skillset. I am now a director running two disciplines – Engineering and Manufacturing, and Procurement and Supply Chain.
