At GOOSE Recruitment, we take pride in the ambition and success of our employees. We caught up with Brianna Da Rosa, Aviation Recruitment Consultant to hear about her recruitment career.
Employee Success Story - Brianna Da Rosa

What does your role involve at GOOSE Recruitment and how has it evolved since joining the business?

My role involves recruitment for MRO & Technical Services teams in aviation businesses, including Engineers, Technical Managers, Technical Directors and more. When I first joined GOOSE, I was supporting with a broad range of aviation roles, but now my role has become much more specialised, which I love. Focusing on one specialism within aviation recruitment allows me to provide my clients and candidates with expertise. I’ve also taken on a lot more responsibility over the past year, which is really rewarding.

How do you see your role evolving in the future?

I am currently working towards a promotion of Senior Recruitment Consultant, and one day as we continue to expand the business, I would love to support in managing a team. Even if that is a long term goal, I hope to see my role evolving in that direction.

That’s what is so great about having a career with GOOSE, there are clear progression paths and you have the opportunity to reach your goals if you put in the work and have the determination and ambition to get there. It really is a career, not just a job.

What do you enjoy most about working in the aviation industry and at GOOSE Recruitment?

The aviation industry is great because it is always changing and evolving. The candidates that you get to work with are so interesting and everyone has a unique story to tell. Aviation is an industry that people work in because they are passionate about it and I think that is what makes the industry so unique.

Working at GOOSE Recruitment is enjoyable because you have the opportunity to work within a close-knit team with fantastic workplace culture. I have big ambitions for my role and I feel supported and encouraged to reach them. We are a young brand, part of an established recruitment business and we work in a different way to many recruitment companies. We have a consultative approach, dedicating time to thorough headhunting and networking. I believe that is a large component of our success, along with our strong brand reputation.

How do you think a recruitment consultant can add value to an aviation business?

At GOOSE, we make it a priority to ensure that we are putting the right people into the businesses that we partner with. We aren’t just looking to fill jobs; that is not our ethos. With the industry gaining momentum again, candidates have more options and can be more selective about their careers. We make it our priority to match based on behaviours, culture and values.

Our genuine passion for what we do, along with the human skills and industry knowledge that we hold can be invaluable to many aviation businesses.

What is one important lesson that you have learnt in your career to date?

To not let the bad times get you down. I have had candidate rejections and clients deciding they are not going to proceed with the role at the very last minute. For the first three months in my role, I found this challenging but you soon learn to be resilient and manage processes more efficiently and not let these situations impact the rest of your day. There are always more opportunities, you just need to be on top of your game.

What skills do you think are required to establish a successful career in recruitment?

You need to be adaptable because when you are speaking with clients and candidates, who you have never spoken to before, you cannot predict people's personalities or ways of doing business. We work with many international aviation businesses, each with its own culture, so it is important to be mindful of this.

You also need to be able to handle objections because there will be a lot of those in recruitment. Having a thick skin plays a huge part in this, along with not being afraid to ask questions.

Are there any challenges that you have faced in your role and how have you overcome them?

Guiding professionals through the recruitment process promptly can be challenging because everyone has different expectations. For example, we may have the perfect candidate for a role but sometimes the timings from either side don’t work out and this can be challenging to manage. However, with experience, you become more equipped with overcoming these challenges and finding solutions.

How have you implemented the learning and development that you have received into your role, and would you attribute this to any success that you have had?

It sounds simple but the training has helped me put the theory into practice. You come away from a training session knowing that there is an answer for everything. There is a lot to take in but the training and development that we have received helps us to be great recruiters and successfully build strong lasting relationships. I would attribute this to a lot of the success I have had because, without this fundamental knowledge, recruitment can be a minefield.

What has been the most valuable piece of advice that you have received, that you would offer to someone else?

Don’t take things personally. You cannot control everything but as long as you are using your toolkit, being authentic and putting in the work, you will get to where you need to be.
