Principal DevOps Account Manager
Anna joined Understanding Recruitment 4 years ago as a Trainee Researcher after finishing a degree in Clinical Psychology. She has moved across the business and was most recently promoted to Principal Account Manager. Prior to joining our DevOps, Cloud & SRE team, Anna worked in an Enterprise RPO business supporting a Recruitment Co-ordination Unit.
With several years of experience in the fast-changing and growing sector, she is able to assist both clients and candidates thanks to her wide scope of industry knowledge and a large network of talent in her niche. Anna prides herself on always supporting candidates from the beginning of their job search journey and assisting them every step of the way with interview preparation, knowledge of the roles and the businesses, all the way to the offer negotiation and onboarding period.
Her favourite part of her job is working with people and building long-term relationships and the satisfaction that maybe by helping someone secure a new job and she has changed their life for the better!
A fun fact about Anna is that she spent most of my summers growing up on my Grandma’s farm where she learned not only how to look after the animals, but also make bread and butter and how to milk a cow!
Anna 's testimonials
Quite simply, Anna is the best recruiter I've ever met. I was unhappy with my role and, while most other recruiters kept pushing identical jobs my way, she fully understood what I was looking for. I was looking to move back to software engineering, to work flexibly, to build something meaningful. I now do all of these things and so much more thanks to Anna. Not only this, but Anna invests a lot of time and effort into every candidate. Countless calls to keep me informed, talk me through the next steps, check and double-check that she had my expectations correct. It felt like I had the benefit of all of her previous clients' experience and it honestly made the process stress-free. Perhaps the first time in my life that interviewing for a job hasn't felt like a huge ordeal. And then, months after she had found me my dream job, I started. Before I even made it to the office I was wished luck - and before I left I was asked how it went. She even bought me a congratulatory lunch, which is something I can't even convince my fiancée to do! A really nice touch to celebrate the start of a new chapter.
Anna is one of the top class recruiters, very personal, execute details throughly, and a true professional . I would recommend any company anyone to hire Anna for her skills, experiences and professionalism.
Anna is a real professional in her area and I can truly recommend her to everyone. She ensured to share all necessary information as possible and hold my hand during the whole hiring process. I am so thankful for her that she helped me to find my new job!
