Sam’s a Senior Recruiter, and has been with IBS for over 8 years now. Unlike most recruiters though, Sam has a background in IT, having previously worked as QA tester and systems admin. Her knowledge of certain technologies and knowing both ends of the business gives her a more nuanced and deeper understanding of IT staffing.
In addition being a recruiter, Sam is also an accomplished writer. She runs the IBS Newsletter and has also four times participated in National Writing Month, an annual internet-based creative writing project where Participants attempt to write a 50,000 word manuscript over the course of November.
