Where are you from originally?

Birmingham

What drew you towards a career in recruitment?

I was always interested in a sales career and dealing with people. Meeting everyone on my placement day and hearing that they were in the same situation as me after university (not knowing which career to go into) was very reassuring

What first attracted you to James Andrews?

The highly team focused environment and the friendly people

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

I have lived in Birmingham my whole life and have always loved it. I chose to stay in Birmingham for university for the same reason and due to football commitments. There is so much to do here, I never get bored and I get to go and watch the Villa play!

Favourite thing about working here so far?

How friendly everyone is and how easy it is to slot in and feel like part of the team

What has surprised you most about being a Recruitment Consultant?

The buzz everyone has when doing their job, there are a lot of places where people don’t enjoy work, however it seems nice and lively at James Andrew’s

What have you enjoyed most so far about your day-to-day work or training?

It is exciting learning a lot of new skills and feeling myself improve with each call
