I recruit for temporary, permanent and contract roles for the Supply Chain and Procurement sectors. I really enjoy the ‘team’ atmosphere here at ASC Connections, it’s a happy and positive place to work. Most importantly the company allows and encourages growth of its employees.

Before recruitment....

I used to be a Dancer and Red Coat (jazz hands)

I couldn't live without....

My red lipstick! Oh and Sherlock Holmes - especially the BBC version starring Benedict Cumberbatch. Life would be dull without this!
