My Journey In Recruitment

10th October 2019

My Journey In Recruitment

I recently joined the team at Red Berry Recruitment, looking after the Commercial Desk in the Shepton Mallet office.

How did you get into recruitment?

My career started in the Insurance industry, where I gained seven years’ experience. I think this has helped me hone my recruitment skills, building an understanding customer focus and good sales techniques.

I’ve recently moved back to the area following 6 months in Bristol working for a regional recruitment firm as a Specialist Insurance Recruiter.

What lessons have you learnt since starting out in recruitment?

This was my first job since leaving the insurance industry and it was an eyeopener into how much time and effort goes into each candidate, client and every placement. I’ve learnt that it’s massively important that you spend time understanding what both parties want.

I think something I’ve learnt from recruitment is never over-promise, it’s bad for relationships and I think it eventually will devalue your personal brand.  

Do you have any outside interests that help you in recruitment?

I like to spend my spare time playing football for my local side. This helps in recruitment as communication and teamwork are integral parts of being successful in this industry.  

I’m looking forward to my time with the business and hope I’m successful along the way.
