Where are you from originally?

What drew you towards a career in recruitment?
I’m quite an outgoing person, I love interacting with others, so it felt like a good fit for me

What first attracted you to James Andrews?
I liked the fact that they are a graduate recruiter, there is a real team ethos, and the charity fundraisers and the social side are a great bonus

Why did you decide to seek a graduate role in Birmingham?
I love Birmingham!

Favourite thing about working here so far?
It’s a great group of staff, they’re friendly, and the environment is exciting

What has surprised you most about being a Recruitment Consultant?
How easy it now is to pick up the phone and speak to effectively a stranger, I was nervous first but it’s now like second nature

What have you enjoyed most so far about your day-to-day work or training?
The personable, one-to-one training by people who know what they’re doing.  Listening in on conversations with clients and taking part in team meetings gives you a real feel for the role and I can’t wait to be let loose
