Recruitment & Resourcing

Professional support for peace of mind

ABOUT ME

Getting to know Jennifer De Maria

You and I could be having a chat about sourcing candidates, how phone screens went, crazy ideas you have, or how bad the weather is here in Northern Ireland. I'm a generalist recruiter, working on all levels of roles from entry to C-level.  Hires I've helped make have been with domain expertise in tech, marketing, sales, consulting, finance, product, medical science, AI and consulting.  I've led recruitment consultants through complex client delivery projects, typically work on senior management roles in the area of marketing or human resources.

You can find me travelling to the ancient islands of Ireland and Croatia, or screaming at the side-lines (sorry in advance to any referees reading this) in support of my children's football and basketball teams.  Before the little devils came along I either lived or travelled in the UK, USA, Sweden, Croatia, France, Belgium, Netherlands and Italy.

Thoughts and outbursts from my world as a recruiter

There is so much going on beneath the surface in the day of a Recruiter. What you know changes with every interaction, challenge, email, phone call and life experience.  I write every so often about the insights, new discoveries and breakthroughs, that I face when getting my hands dirty in the thicket of this beautiful, tempestuous, and human-driven recruiting universe.
