Name: Olimpia Newlove

Job Title: Recruitment Consultant

Sector: Naval 

One thing you bring to your role:

An American accent and an honest approach to the recruitment process. I believe finding the right role for the person is just as important as the right person for the role. I am as candid, communicative and thorough as possible to ensure that each placement is a lasting relationship for both the company and the new employee.

What is the best thing about working in the Defence Industry? Why? 

The projects I am recruiting on are always evolving and interesting. It’s exciting to be bringing these positions out to the market.

What is the best question a candidate can ask an employer? Why? 

Always ask how this hire will not only accomplish needed tasks, but also help the company and the hiring manager. What pain are they feeling that you will help alleviate? What keeps them up at night? Once you identify how you can best help, you will be able to give the interviewer peace of mind of how you will be a part of a productive solution.

What hobby would you get into if time and money weren’t an issue and why? 

Probably astronaut training. I can’t imagine a more interesting adventure than launching off into space and doing a little exploration up there.
