Meet the Team: Lauren Ryan

April 2024

I decided I wanted to work in recruitment when…

I was working in a call centre and I found myself longing for more opportunities to grow and advance in my career. While I wasn’t particularly drawn to pursuing further studies, I still had a strong desire to find a higher-paying profession. That’s when I had a conversation with a friend who worked as a recruiter. I was amazed to learn about her rapid promotion within just one year and the incredible earning potential that came with it. It was a real eye-opener for me, and I realised that recruitment could be the perfect fit for my aspirations.

I joined the MM Search team…

I joined MM Search because I was drawn to the opportunity to work with recruitment heavyweights Ken and Derek. I truly believe that the best way to grow and develop in my own career is to learn from the best. I have already had the opportunity to join them at client pitches to watch them in action which has proven invaluable to me.

The first thing I do when I get to the office is…

I usually come in about half an hour early so I can go through my emails from the previous night, respond to any LinkedIn messages, check my schedule, and make a to-do list for the day. All of this while enjoying a delicious bowl of oats!

My working day involves…

Calls, meetings, lunch, more calls, more meetings – you get the jist!

My greatest professional strength is…

I’d say my greatest strength is being upfront and direct. When working with clients, I believe in building lasting relationships based on trust and I make it a point not to oversell or make false promises. This approach has created strong working relationships, some of which have even turned into friendships. It’s all about open communication and mutual trust!

The thing I love most about working with the MM Search team…

The collaboration is second to none! It’s amazing to see how everyone works incredibly hard, but still manages to have a great time and share lots of laughs along the way. This collaborative spirit not only fosters creativity and innovation, but it also creates a supportive and enjoyable work environment. I truly appreciate being part of a team where we can work together, learn from each other, and have a lot of fun in the process.

When I’m not in work, you’ll usually find me…

Travelling! I make sure I spend every day of annual leave in another country! This means I can still see the world and not put any pauses on my career.

My motto is…

“Business opportunities are like buses, there’s always another one coming”.  – Richard Branson.

My goals for 2023…

I want to become a recognised name within the Sales and Marketing senior recruitment industry.

My secret skill/party piece is…

I’m a bit of a lyrical genius. I bet if you played me 5 songs, I would know the words to all of them – yes even those way before my time!

What was the last gift you gave someone?

I bought my younger sister concert tickets to Tate McRae!

If you were an animal, what would you be?

A cheeky Monkey – not sure if I really need to elaborate?
