Olivia MacDonnell

Senior Recruitment Consultant

I’m an Arts & Contemporary Studies graduate with extensive experience in international recruitment. Working in the International Healthcare Team, I help to recruit healthcare professionals for a range of prestigious and interesting new facilities in Qatar and the United Arab Emirates.

I’m particularly proud of the assistance we’ve provided to two new healthcare projects in Qatar – it’s been very rewarding to place passionate and skilled candidates in facilities that are dedicated to improving healthcare both regionally and internationally. 

On a personal level, I’m very grateful to be working for such a genuine company, and I take great pride in the clients we recruit for and the candidates we place. Having moved to the UK from Canada, I appreciate that relocation can be both exciting and daunting and I’m very happy to offer advice to anyone considering it.

I think it’s very important to treat people as you would like to be treated, and to commit to this both professionally and personally. Outside of work, I’m interested in art and design, and I enjoy socialising with friends and travelling to new destinations. My team will vouch for the fact that I also love a hip-hop karaoke session every now and again.
