Challenged but Remaining Thankful- Life of a Remote Recruiter.

Working from home for the first time in my professional career has swiftly become one of the most challenging things I have faced to-date.

Working within the recruitment Industry my normal working day looks hugely different. My employers, my colleagues and I are having to think very differently about our work and how we can continue to ensure it is purposeful and fulfilling.

Today I am challenged in many ways and now, deep into my third week working from home, I can still say “I am here”. I am doing my best with my work. I am trying to move beyond my comfort zone and engage in some new tasks, this Blog being one. Prior to working in Recruitment, I worked as a Personal Trainer & Fitness Instructor. Blogging and Vlogging are a huge part of that industry and it is something I never part-took in. Here I am now writing a Blog and am proud to be.

I live in a beautiful part of rural Ireland and I am incredibly thankful for the vast countryside and sheer freedom that comes with it. I am very aware of those who feel crowded out, cooped up and restricted. From my work space I look out at the mast on top of Mount Leinster. I catch glimpses of leaves rustling in the wind, cows frolicking, dogs tumbling and chasing leaves. I hear the sweet tones of birds chirping, new born lambs bleating, cows mooing and children enjoying the great outdoors of springtime. Working from home, I also get to care for and support my parents and enjoy more time with them.

For today, I am showing up. I am working, challenged but remaining thankful.
