You may have noticed some new faces in our Glasgow and Edinburgh offices.  Join us as we get to know them a bit better. You may even discover a good talking point for striking up a conversation with our newest recruit.

We sat down with Emma Shahnavaz, from Neilston, to learn more about her background in recruitment and what she enjoys doing in her free time. Emma’s joining our Glasgow office as a Recruitment Consultant for the Accountancy & Finance team. 

Where were you before joining Change? 

I was a headhunter within the wealth management sector. 

How long have you worked in Accountancy & Finance? 

This is my 2nd week!

What’s your favourite part about the Accountancy & Finance market? 

I enjoy learning about all the different roles within the Commerce & Industry sector and discovering an entirely different aspect of Financial Services.

What initially attracted you to the position at Change? 

Reputation! I did my research, after a bit of a blip on my CV, and felt that after speaking with a Rec-2-Rec, I would fit in well with the culture. 

I also wanted to work somewhere with a strong reputation that's going through exciting changes! 

What are you most looking forward to? 

Building my knowledge within the sector and developing strong client and candidate relationships.

Where do you see your career in 5 years? 

Hopefully in a senior position here at Change! 

Favourite holiday? 

Dubai – by far. I’m hoping to go back next year (and not just for Sephora!).

Most famous person ever met? 

James MacAvoy. I saw him at Glasgow Airport, said hello, asked him for a selfie and he said, “leave me alone!”…. does that count?

Seen any good movies or read any good books lately? 

Disney’s ‘The Lion King’ remake — bring tissues.
