This week I’m excited to share the news that Bernadette Eichner (known to those nearest and dearest to her as ‘Bernie’) has officially agreed to take on the the role of RecruitLoop’s first Marketplace Manager, with an initial focus on our recruiter community across Australia and New Zealand.
In a way it feels as if Bernadette has just completed the world’s longest ever internship – which seems absolutely crazy for an industry expert with over 20 years experience in the recruitment industry not to mention a first class honours degree in psychology!
I should point out here that Bernadette was actually one of our very first recruiters, and has supported our vision from the very beginning. Those die-hard RecruitLoop Blog followers might even remember her sharing one of her amazing client stories in the early days.
Since then she has not only been incredibly active on the RecruitLoop platform (we call these select few RecruitLoopers ‘Rockstars’), but she has also been instrumental in representing the Recruiter Community around usability, feedback, and changes as our platform has evolved.
The timing for Bernadette’s official appointment couldn’t be better.
There’s no denying that the Australian recruiter community is in fantastic hands and will continue to flourish. But following our announcement last week of our global partnership with NPA – the Worldwide Recruiting Network, we’re confident that any NPA members joining RecruitLoop will be on-boarded by a RecruitLooper with a wealth of experience along with an intimate knowledge of the RecruitLoop platform.
Although she’s been part of the RecruitLoop family since the very beginning, we wish her every success in her new and exciting role as Marketplace Manager!
The internship’s over, Bernie! Congratulations and welcome aboard!
