Trades & Services Specialist
Senior Recruitment Consultant - Trades & ServicesBarry Woodham

With 8 years at Careers Connections under his belt, Barry is our longest-serving employee and we are lucky to have him on our side. His 30 years of experience in the recruitment industry equips him with an understanding of the market that few others have today.

After a number of years in the pharmaceutical industry, Barry was headhunted and joined recruitment - three decades later and he's never looked back.

Specialising in permanent, contract and temporary recruitment within the Pharmaceutical, Engineering, Technical, and Manufacturing industry sector, Barry has the ability to utilise industry expertise to develop innovative techniques that assist in the selection, attraction and retention of high-calibre candidates.

He prides himself on his ability to create strategies that satisfy even the most finicky clients and candidates - a skill we attribute to his infectious personality and relaxed demeanour.

During his time with us, Barry has learned a lot about the value of building and maintaining trust as a professional. The underlying mantra in everything he does stems from the golden rule: Treat others the way you want to be treated.

"Careers Connections is built on trust - trust in our colleagues, trust from our clients, trust in our vision," he explains.

"The most treasured thing I have learned on this team is that trust and faith add up to success. We cultivate trust, our clients have faith that we will excel at our jobs on their behalf and the result is a great placement and a happy team."

When Barry's not wowing his clients, he loves checking out vintage motorbikes and even racing them on weekends. Accompanied by some good music, Barry also enjoys doing a bit of bush walking when he has the chance.

While he's looking forward to his retirement this year (SO much more time for vintage motorbike racing), he treasures his time at Careers Connections. The relationships he's built with clients, colleagues and candidates have been invaluable.
