Name – Martin Kerr
Job title – Recruitment Consultant
What other jobs have you done apart from working in recruitment?
Caddying, Barista, Bar work, new homes sales.
What is the funniest thing you’ve seen at work (anywhere)?
Someone trying to escape the building site on a bicycle when it was very icy... with a drill in each hand... going down a hill with the labourer chasing after him... It didn’t end well for the thief!
Biggest disaster anywhere at work? (that you can tell us about!)
I used to own a Mazda mx5 which was very low to the ground. I had a meeting first thing and when I got out of the car my trousers ripped around my crotch….
Why did you join Peace?
Felt like a good fit when I interviewed: the company ethos and values stood out.
Who in the Peace office makes you laugh, and why?
Beige. His awful jokes.
Favourite holiday destination?
Favourite sport/team or hobby?
Football, The famous Glasgow Rangers (and just to show we’re an equal opps employer, we also have Celtic, Hearts and Hibs fans – Ed).
Where are the real challenges in the recruitment market just now?
Within the Civil & Structural market candidates are at a real shortage. Recruitment in general appears to be a flooded marketplace of recruiters with too many "CV send-out" agencies around.
Favourite (non work) website and why?
Netflix/SkyGo - stream good programmes that I can chill out and watch after work.
