Wilkinson & Associates would like to welcome Aisling Burke our newest member to the team.

Aisling has only been with us a few weeks but already we love hearing about the latest music gigs she has been too.
1. How did you get into the recruitment industry?
I worked in the financial services for years and had experience in sales and relationship management. I got into recruitment through my friend Julia who advised this may be a good change for me.
2. How long have you worked for Wilkinson and Associates?
I joined the company at the end of January this year.
3. What’s your typical day like?
Very busy. Helping the other consultants. Answering emails, making calls.
4. What are your interests outside of work?
Music and travelling are my biggest passions. I love 60’s rock and folk music and Bob Dylan is my hero! I try to go to as many gigs as I can. I like to travel as much as I can, luckily my sister works for Emirates so I get a nice discount on flights!
5. What’s your favourite holiday destination?
I went to India a few years ago and fell in love with the people and the place. Everyone was so warm and friendly. The sun shone every day and there was so much to see and do.
6. What are you most looking forward to this year?
I am looking forward to learning a lot about the recruitment industry. I am going to run my first 10k this year so hopefully I will manage to complete it! I have lots of nice weekends away planned and I turn 30 this year so the fancy dress party should be fun!
