Shannon Heffernan, Deployment Consultant
Recruitment | Deployment | Public Sector | Digital

What’s your background?
So, I am from the heart of East London! My background sits within the recruitment industry as it is something I have a passion for. Meeting new people and speaking with different people on a regular basis is amazing. It makes a huge impact on people's lives, and I am so happy for such an outcome.

I am a highly motivated and driven individual, I have had a variety of professional experiences since the age of 16, ranging from catering, retail to recruitment. Coming from an agency background now into Difrent is very "Difrent" but it was an amazing move, and I think that Difrent have an amazing future ahead with making a change for the ‘Public Good’!

Describe your role at Difrent
So, my role at Difrent is a Deployment Consultant where I bring on board the top talent to join such an amazing/diverse/fast growing company! As already mentioned, I love speaking to new people and making an impact not just on ours but their lives also.

Who are you outside of Difrent?
I am a very family and friend orientated individual who I love spending valuable time with. I am really into my music and travel around as much as possible!

Who would you invite to dinner, dead or alive?
Walt Disney!! I would love to invite him to dinner as I loved his creativeness and would love to discuss the story behind each Disney movie… I would be so intrigued to have dinner with Walt, it would be a dream.
