Our Newcastle Team
You will hear Nads before you see her. She needs no excuse to let out her famous chortle, and it’s infectious enough to turn even your worst day around. And why is she so happy you ask? She is doing what she loves every single day. Since 2000, she has been wining, dining and helping superstars find each other. If you want to talk about your recruitment strategy or how to find a unicorn for your team call Nadene!
With his battle skills honed on the rugby field, you would think Steve was our lead negotiator. As a highly integral part of the Eight Recruitment team, Steve's management of operations keeps us all on track! Living by the mantra 'a pat on the back is only 6 inches away from a kick in the bum', he takes working with his wife very seriously and often thinks she missed her calling as coach for the Leinster Lions. If you have any questions about accounts and operations, call Steve! And yes, you can ask him for scrum tips too.
Nikki loves to talk… a lot. Chatting to candidates, clients, the old lady next door, she can even talk under water. Nikki loves to hear a good yarn and doesn’t mind spinning one either. Her passion is in the detail and with her as your cheerleader, you know you will have the best foot forward when looking for your next role. Want a new best friend as well as a new job? Give Nikki a call!
Simone thinks that being a mum is the best job she’s had, which makes her kids really lucky because she smashes it here at Eight Recruitment and apparently, we’re not even her favourites! Quiet and unassuming, she is the one to watch because she sees and remembers everything. A great quality for her clients and candidates, not so great for her colleagues and Christmas parties! Simone is the person to call about your next career move, just don’t ask her about chickens.
Many people might not understand her all-consuming obsession with the iconic 80's movie Dirty Dancing but with 6 years of recruitment experience behind her nobody is putting Ana in a corner. Even after all these years, far from getting bored with recruitment she's still having the time of her life… Our exotic addition to the team, Ana hails originally from Kosovo and whilst she claims English is her 2nd language, she is a proficient expert at talking. Currently raising the bar in what is already a very noisy team, Ana is truly a GrEIGHT fit. Call Ana (not Elsa) to talk about what you want to be when you grow up.
More affectionately known as “Mandy-Moo”, Amanda was hired simply because she owns a French Bulldog and well… enough said. Lucky for us she is actually a kick arse recruiter too, and when it comes to finding someone for your business, she can be a bit of a bulldog herself, never letting up until the jobs done. In a previous life she worked in a hip, urban London recruitment office and travelled Europe, now she’s stuck with us drinking wine in her trackies and although she’s the youngest in our mature team, she knows (and loves) The Spice Girls so we consider her to be wise beyond her years. Call Amanda on 0479 086148 to discuss your next role, delicious cheese and inappropriate memes.
Silent but deadly, Laura is the one who keeps everyone in check. She takes dotting i’s and crossing t’s seriously and has even won a medal in a state-wide competition for literacy where the only mistake she made on her test was spelling her own name wrong! It’s that kind of gaff and her love for power ballads (aka air guitar) that has secured her spot in the hearts of this medley team. With her exceptional experience in HR she is always there with advice for us and our clients and she’s a bit of a whizz when it comes to FRIENDS trivia too. For useless info about 90’s SITCOM’s or for some Recruitment/HR advice, you can call Laura
