Meet Tom O’Loughlin, 2014’s Most Inspiring Team Leader/Manager

Tom smallTom O’Loughlin, Associate Director, Nicoll Curtin, talks about the difference winning the 2014 Recruiter Investing in Talent Award for the Most Inspiring Team Leader/Manager has made to his business and to him personally:

“It’s created a buzz. With all the coverage and announcement on our web site, it’s raised the profile of both Nicoll Curtin and our Swiss office, and we’ve had an increase in our ability to recruit in the market. When we’re hiring now, we ask candidates, ‘Why come and join us?’ They say, ‘This is definitely a place I want to be – where I’ll be given opportunities, and I can get promoted quickly.’

“Obviously, it’s a very gratifying thing for me personally. It’s really helped in raising my personal profile. I was a manager, now I’m an associate director – I’m sure the Award had something to do with that.

“And now because of my experience, it’s helped us put a structure in place to help develop other people.”
