Meet the Recruiter - Hayley McQueen

Posted June 2 2023 By Hayley McQueen

What made you want to join HRC Recruitment?

I was at a stage in life where I wasn’t too sure what career path I wanted to follow when I noticed the HRC graduate programme. After researching more about the company, culture, and benefits, it seemed like the perfect place to get on the career ladder and really develop myself.

What career path did you follow before getting into recruitment?

I worked as a Sales Executive for a telecommunication brand for five years. I knew this wasn’t the career I would be in forever, but the skills gained from this role have been instrumental to my career now.

What was your dream job as a child? 

My dream job as a child was, and still is, a singer. Can I hold a tune? Absolutely not, but I’ve always dreamed of being on stage and playing for thousands of people.

What’s been your biggest success so far?

Buying my first house and being promoted within my first year at HRC.

What do you like to do in your free time?

I like to go to the gym, treat myself to a boujee coffee, or spend some quality time with my niece.

What is most important to you?

My family, friends, boyfriend, and building my career here at HRC.

Describe yourself in three words.

Funny, laidback, and uplifting.

Now ask the last person you messaged to describe you in three words.

Kind, motivated, honest.

Tell us a fun fact about yourself.

I backpacked around South America and did a 3-day hike to Machu Picchu.


Favourite film?

Anything with Tom Hanks in it

Favourite singer / artist?

Lewis Capaldi. Got to back up a fellow Scottish person.

Favourite book?

Anything that is a proper romcom, “leaves you in tears” kind of book. I love a good love story.

Favourite colour?


Sun or snow?


Apple or android?


TikTok or Instagram?


Tea or coffee?

Coffee – it’s probably my blood type at this point.
