I started off my career working at Ageas within the inbound sales department. This was my first role where I found myself overcoming challenges on a daily basis. I found that I thrived working in a customer focused environment. During my time at Ageas I was asked to help out the internal recruitment team over a busy period. This is where I found a love for recruitment and decided I wanted to do it permanently. I have now been doing IT recruitment for a year and a half, I have learnt a lot over this time and I am now working towards becoming a consultant.
Why did you get into recruitment?
I liked the idea of helping other people and I also felt like it was something that just came naturally to me.
What do you think makes a great recruitment consultant?
A good recruitment consultant is made up of a lot of skills/characteristics, however I would say to be a great consultant you need to be resilient. The job has its ups but it also has its low points. You need to be able to get through those points to enjoy the fun side of recruitment!
Your biggest achievement at Bond Williams?
I would say my biggest achievement at Bond Williams is learning a whole new sector whilst getting to grips with recruitment itself.
Your biggest achievement in life?
I would say by biggest achievement is leaving sixth form before completing my exams, going straight into work and still securing myself a role where I can develop and grow. I have just proved to myself that sometimes you just need to work hard to get where you want to.
