Technical Recruiter was founded by Pamela Aitchison in January 2011. With 14 years’ experience recruiting for engineering and manufacturing companies in Scotland she felt the need to start her own agency with the focus on providing a high quality recruitment service. Demand for services was high and in June 2012 Louise Hunter joined the business to bring much added value and support to drive the business ahead.
A background as diverse as Raw Materials Stock Controller in a Pet Foods factory in Lincolnshire, Office Manager in an Agricultural Engineering and Manufacturing company, Stock Controller in a Gas Turbine Manufacturer, Rare Breeds Pig Farmer in South Africa, Regional Works Planner for a Water Company in the UK all really do lend themselves to a career in recruitment – having seen business needs at all levels you really do get a good grasp of the business needs of your clients and can understand your candidates too.
Pamela moved to Scotland in 1998 and shortly found herself totally immersed and loving the recruitment industry, for an enthusiastic and business minded person it’s a great business to be in.
After winning an outstanding student award at the Glasgow School of Art, Louise was offered a traineeship with a London fashion house, however the lure of sales soon took her into the world of cosmetics and she quickly progressed to become one of Clinique’s youngest ever Managers by just 21.
She followed this by developing her sales and management skills at Vodafone and Rentokil. Louise then went on to manage her family’s Hydraulic Engineering business with customers including the MOD and the Royal Mail, followed by a successful sales career with Proctor + Gamble and now a career in recruitment - with a business mind and a passion for good quality customer service, her enthusiasm and professionalism are second to none.
