Automotive & Fleet Recruitment team welcomes new Recruitment Consultant, Andrew McCarthy
At the start of 2023, we welcomed our latest starter Andrew McCarthy to our Automotive & Fleet Recruitment team. Having worked previously in an engine technician role, Andrew brings transferable skills and knowledge into his role as a Recruitment Consultant.
As always, we enjoy getting to know our new starters and catching up with them to see how their first month has been. Read below to find out more about Andrew and his role within E3 Recruitment.
Can you give us some background on your career and what led to you joining E3 Recruitment?
I started my career in engineering after joining the Royal Air force at the age of 18. I left after 6 years to pursue a career at Cummins Turbo Technologies, I worked there for 17 years as a leading engine technician, before briefly working for Medexs as a service manager. We designed and manufactured canopies to install in operating theatres all over the UK.
Although this is my first experience in the recruitment industry, I believe I have a lot of transferable skills and technical insight to assist me in matching the right candidate to the role.
