Introducing: Keisha Staffi
18th Feb, 2016
Our 'Introducing' articles are our way of giving you the opportunity to find out a little bit more on the staff we have in Your World Recruitment Group. Whether they are YW veterans or new starters, we aim to shed some light on some of our most admired and hard-working staff. This edition focuses on Keisha Shaffi, a Recruitment Consultant based in our Sydney office...
Originally from Liverpool in the UK, Keisha has over 4 years working in HR. Following the completion of her undergraduate degree in Human Resources, Keisha went on to complete a Graduate Scheme in Human Resources, working with the National Health Service (NHS) in the UK. During this time she worked full time and studied part time for her Level 7 CIPD in Human Resource Management, and is now an Associate CIPD Member.
Following completion of her CIPD, Keisha went on to work as an HR Specialist at another Hospital in the NHS. The majority of this role was covering Employee Relations, which included Conduct and Capability, Performance Management and Disciplinary Procedures. It was at this point that Keisha began to understand the importance of getting the right person into a role. Recruitment had been the part of her role that she enjoyed the most whilst working with the NHS, in particular working with Healthcare Professionals who were relocating from other countries to the UK, being the first point of contact and helping them with their transition to the UK. Keisha particularly enjoyed seeing how these individuals would progress in their career.
After completion of her academic studies, Keisha decided that she wanted to travel and decided to relocate to Australia. She then continued to work in HR in the Education sector. Keisha has since decided to pursue a career in Recruitment and return to the Healthcare industry where she feels she has a lot of knowledge and passion. She will be assisting the Sydney team, adding valuable resourcing experience and will help assist with our international projects in collaboration with the NHS in the UK.
Outside of work, Keisha enjoys travelling whenever she gets the opportunity.
You can get in touch with Keisha by emailing [email protected] or by calling 029 411 7440

Part one of our Black British History: Healthcare Heroes Profiles for 2021. Kofoworola Abeni Pratt, James McCune Smith, and John Alcindor all qualified as healthcare professionals at a time when it was revolutionary for them to do so - they all also played a major part in the fight for civil rights. The impact they had, not only in their time but for generations to come, needs more recognition.
