What does a typical day of a marketing recruitment consultant role involve?
The start of a typical day usually involves catching up with all the candidates and clients that I’m currently working with. It’s important to me that I keep almost constant contact with both parties, not just so I can represent them as well as possible, but also so I can develop a good relationship with them. If I have a new role on with a client, I will have meetings to discuss the role and marketing agency in detail, and then I’ll set about calling the best candidates in my network to talk about their suitability.
How did you get into your current job role?
I spent 2 years working within marketing agencies before moving into the recruitment sector. During my journey at Search, I have undergone a promotion from recruitment consultant to senior consultant. This came as a result of me surpassing the promotion target. At Search promotions are very transparent; there’s no set amount of time you have to wait, you just need to reach your targets.
What is Search like as a place to work?
Search is a great place to work. In the Professional Services team in Leeds, we often have team nights out, cooked breakfasts on a Monday and afternoon team meetings with pizza and beer on a Friday. This is a team with amazing ambition as well. What more is there to say? The office atmosphere is fantastic, full of ambitious and talented people, and there’s not a bad apple amongst us.
