Reena Tailor

Engineering Risk & HR Consultant

"I’m a firm believer in going beyond the recruitment stage. It’s not just about placing a person, it is ensuring they have successfully delivered their skills/talent to an organisation and making sure both candidate and client are happy with their new business relationship. I’m passionate about learning about candidate career aspirations and how they can add value to my client, I feel this is key in the initial stages. Human capital is and will always be the most critical element of the success of an organisation, so investing in the biggest assets (your people!) is crucial. I love seeking ways to help clients build their employer brand, improve their internal HR processes and searching for talented, inspiring individuals.'
