Russell Lunn - Senior Driving Consultant

Russell Lunn

Business Development Executive

Russell joined Premier Placement 2 years ago having been in recruitment industry for a number of years.  Working previously in the manufacturing, transport and distribution industry as a senior manager, part of his responsibility was to deal with staffing requirements and rely heavily on the services of a recruitment agency.

Premier Placement certainly was an eye opener for me within the recruitment supply, they showed me how recruitment should be done. The whole process and the ongoing compliance is unbelievable.  The customers here have been with Premier since its inception and that’s testament to the service offerings it provides. 

 Now an ambassador for the company my role is to meet key decision makers within organisations.  Knowing and believing in our core values and exceeding our customers expectations makes me very proud to be part of this business.

I’ve worked with Premier Placement Services for 12 years in temporary industrial and driving roles, and have built up a great rapport with the team. I like the fact that they don’t treat you like a number, instead they treat you as an individual and with respect. I’ve been offered a number of full time roles over the years for clients that I’ve worked with on a long term basis, but for me I like the variety that temporary work brings and I get to meet some great characters along the way.
