Laura Farrell
What do you do for a living in 10 words? 
I lead team of in-house recruitment superstars for McCurrach
Where do you currently reside? 
Glasgow Southside
1. What did you want to do when you were a kid? 
A dancer on the royal variety performance
2. What memories do you have of your first ever job?
Extra paper round. My wee mum would drive to one end of the street-drop me off- and pick me up at the other side. They were realllly heavy! She may have delivered a few when i was at school too!
Tell us about the worst interview you’ve had so far?
Being spoken AT for an hour and not getting a word in. Anyone who knows me will not believe i was outspoken by someone else but its true! And i was offered the job! Turned it down:)
What things have you witnessed in an interview that you couldn’t believe?
I could write a book! I had to ask a rather rowdy character to leave an assessment centre once. Following week he appeared again having shaved his hair off and changed his name slightly. Also had a guy tell me he had to remove all his clothes every time he went to the toilet to do a no.2! I had asked for an interesting fact as an ice breaker in a group session but really?!
What was the best piece of advice you received in your career?
You can achieve anything you set your mind to.  Don't doubt yourself!
Who did you idolise when growing up?
Kylie Minogue hands down.
What do you enjoy the most about your current job?
The people i work with. I absolutely love my job, and my team and wider McCurrach are the reason. Absolutely smashing bunch! I also love getting the chance to be involved in so many different types of campaigns, being a key decision maker and the crazy pace!
What memories do you have of your first ever job?
First proper job was Marks and Spencer's and i served the Krankies once. They weren't very nice to me! I'm not a fan now :)
What is an embarrassing thing that not many people would know about you? 
I forgot about a candidate and left him in a room for nearly 3 hours! He was directly across from reception and never came out?! I was mortified when i remembered and had to ask a colleague to apologise and say i had left hours ago for a family emergency!
