Optimus welcomes two new appointments to its growing team of recruitment specialists this January. Sharon Cushion and Anna Nowotarski both join the specialist Fiduciary and Technology and Change recruitment agency following long careers in the finance industry, bringing with them a wealth of contacts and insight into corporate professions.
Sharon Cushion joins Optimus as a Senior Consultant and will be responsible for mandates within Compliance, following two decades working in a senior compliance role.
Sharon said: “With hands on experience and an intimate understanding of the elements that make up compliance, I hope to be approachable to both clients and candidates. I enjoyed a very rewarding career in this area and hope that my experiences can help to increase exposure to what has become a vital area of any business.”
She is looking forward to the change in career direction Optimus will offer and introducing candidates to the exciting opportunities in this market.
Having taken some time to raise her family, Anna Nowotarski joins Optimus as a Recruitment Consultant, having previously spent a decade working as a Relationship Manager in the banking sector.
Anna said: “After several wonderful years at home with my son, the opportunity to join Optimus felt like a natural way to enter the working world once more. Having experienced high-pressured sales roles in the past, the collaborative, supportive nature of Optimus’ business model really appealed to me. I hope to build strong, trusting relationships with both clients and candidates and match the right people with the right job.”
Jamie Guyer, Managing Director at Optimus Recruitment, said: “We like to offer a very unique service and our model of recruiting those who have solid experience working within the finance industry has served us well. It is an exciting and busy time to be joining Optimus and I look forward to working with Anna and Sharon as we drive the business forward.
