Meet the Team – Lynsey McCormick
What brought you to recruitment?
I was initially in a job that I was comfortable but thought if I don’t go for a change now, I never will. I really liked the direction Murray Recruitment was going in. I wanted to be part of that. I wanted to grow with the company.
What do you specialise in?
Decision making and going the extra mile for people. I am always positive and want to bring that into everything I do.
What is your biggest flaw?
Being too giving, with my time and in general. I care too much and sometimes people take advantage of that.
What has been your biggest career highlight so far?
I love what I do, and I know I always go the extra mile for everyone so when I get good feedback forms back I see that it’s recognised. I also love being a leader and having people report to me.
To be honest the fact that I had my daughter at the age I did and showing her that I am independent, hard-working and have a great career is something I am really proud of.
After a stressful day, you find yourself with an hour of spare time on your own – what do you choose to do?
I would either go for a walk or cook a big meal. I love cooking and feeding everyone – all while listening to some classic 90s RnB! (of course).
Who is your idol?
Donna from Suits… or PINK – both of them! I just love both of their drives, with no filter…they just get things done!
What advice would you give your younger self?
Breath. (we recommend you all do this …)
But seriously; Breath. You don’t get the time back and really, life is a whirlwind and you can become complacent. Register what you have achieved and give yourself credit!
Random Question from the Hat of Chat – Who would play you in the movie of your life and what genre would it be?
Definitely a comedy! It’s one thing after another! Hmm, I don’t know, id probably just get Donna from Suits to play me, she gets what she wants and she strives to get her happy ever after!
