Andrei Albu

Recruitment Manager

An ambitious, confident communicator and logical thinker with excellent inter-personal skills, ready to take on any challenges to advance and develop myself further.

I am a proactive and hardworking individual who is willing to go the extra mile to ensure all work is done to the most professional and high level standard. My work ethics and professional attitude have arisen to various promotions within my career in a spectrum of industries and businesses.

Lauren Bywater

Business Development Manager

I am a Business Development Manager for Valland Staffing Solutions, a Recruitment Agency that specialises in recruitment within the Health Care Industry. In this role I aim to build on the relationships we we hold with our current clients along with sourcing new clients.

Before taking on this exciting role I worked with Staffline within their Overseas Recruitment team for 2+ years and was able to source accommodation providers to work alongside and built lasting relationships that I hope will continue following my departure.

I always pride myself on giving a personal touch whether I am speaking with colleagues, clients or customers as I want everyone’s experience to be more than just securing a deal or placing a candidate into work, I want to leave my mark and make the journey we go through to be memorable for all the right reasons.

I am always more than happy to connect with former colleagues, managers and like minded people, so feel free to contact me if you would like to connect.
