For this week’s Throwback Thursday, we are catching up with Eve Halliwell who is now working at Silver Swan Recruitment in London as a recruitment consultant, who specialise in recruiting domestic staff for your home, super yacht or private jet!
Eve who went to St. Bede’s RC High School was at Winstanley between 2012-2014 and studied Geography, Psychology and French. During her time with us Eve went on The Gambia School Project Trip which she advised was ‘an amazing eye-opening trip and an amazing experience as it was not somewhere I would have considered going myself’
After leaving Winstanley Eve went onto study International Business with French at Manchester Metropolitan University. After finishing, Eve got a job through Silver Swan working as a chalet host during the winter season in Val D’Isere, France. Whilst she was there, one of the staff members from the company came to visit and was so impressed with how strong Eve was within the role they suggested she joined their team at the end of the season and that is exactly what she did!
Eve specialises in recruiting staff for clients in Saudi Arabia and had these words to say to any student who is undecided about what they want to do in the future; ‘Always be open to trying or taking new routes, even though you may not have planned for that path. It is a very small world so network with as many people as possible!’ she also went on to say ‘Winstanley is a college you feel proud to attend and you know the teachers are supportive and great at what they do!’
