I believe that matchmaking is my thing. Before recruitment I was in the wine business in my native home of Honduras. In order to satisfy a customer’s requirements I would carefully select the perfect wine for not only to the dish they were cooking, but to their personality too. When done right, smiles are guaranteed — and to me, there is nothing better than seeing someone smile. Apply that methodology to recruitment — connecting talent with career opportunities — and it’s the same thing: the perfect pairing guarantees smiles all round.

While at first glance it may not seem like the most obvious career move—switching from wine merchant to recruitment consultant — but the more I found out, the more I realised the move would allow me to take my matchmaking skills to the next level. Especially working in the media and communications sector where culture and personality are at the surface as well as the heart of both businesses and brands alike.

Moving from Honduras to Dubai and joining the team at MCG Associates has been the best career move I could have made. Service underpins everything we do at MCG, which makes everyday exciting and rewarding. By taking the time to fully understand our clients’ and candidates’ needs and ambitions we dedicate ourselves to finding the ideal match, first time, every time.
