Emma King

Senior Consultant

“I love talking to people and learning more about their background and career path, so I can truly understand how I can help them. One of my key skills is forming relationships.

“My role on the Executive Search desk at Ryder Reid means each day I catch up with candidates to discuss live roles, helping them with interviews and updating them on latest market developments. I also reach out to law firm HR professionals to discuss how I can best assist them in the future.

“Collaboration and teamwork are definitely what sets Ryder Reid apart from its competitors. We work together to achieve goals and great outcomes for candidates and our law firm clients.

“What I love most about Ryder Reid is people really are our core focus. We want to help in any way we can, whether that’s with finding a new job or keeping our clients and candidates updated on the market. What I love most about my job is getting to form relationships with new people every day.

“Hearing just how excited people are when they land their dream role is just one thing that makes me want to stay in recruitment. I got into recruitment when I was a candidate seeking temporary work via a different agency. I realised just how rewarding it must be to help people find a job that they truly love.

“From being a candidate, I wanted to move to the agency side, because of the great understanding I gained from the candidate’s perspective. I’ve made HR my core knowledge area and I’ve upskilled to ensure that I truly understand candidates.

“As a child, what did I want to be when I grew up? I wanted to be the lead singer of a band, but I soon realised that I can’t sing!”
