Where are you from originally?
Born in Surrey, moved to Nigeria for two years during GCSE’s, then moved back to Surrey. I am mixed race, my dad is Nigerian and my mum is Anglo-Indian (mixed Caucasian and Indian)
What drew you towards a career in recruitment?
I have some relatives who are in recruitment e.g. my cousin who has 12 years’ experience in recruitment, so I was already aware and interested in the sector
What first attracted you to James Andrews?
The friendly environment at JARS stood out from other more cut-throat recruitment agencies that I interviewed at or looked at in London
Why did you decide to seek a graduate role in London?
The team based working environment alongside the robust training programme was very reassuring. Due to the training being so comprehensive, I felt I would be able to fully learn the industry and eventually become a specialist in my given department (Social Housing)
Favourite thing about working here so far?
How everyone is so friendly and approachable regardless of their job title, I appreciate that I am able to speak to both new starters and senior members of the team for advice or guidance
What has surprised you most about being a Recruitment Consultant?
Calling clients isn’t as scary as you might think at first!
What have you enjoyed most so far about your day-to-day work or training?
I have enjoyed how quickly you are able to call candidates and clients to get actual first-hand experience in the job. Although I have just started my marketing training I feel like I will get all the necessary practice and feedback I will need to improve and learn how to properly speak to clients
