I joined Technical Network (back then Network Recruitment Partnership) at the beginning of 2014, having recently graduated with no previous recruitment experience. The journey into recruitment began with a 10 week training academy with 5 other initiates that are now trusted colleagues, this involved a combination of on the job training and a in-house training development scheme.
Technical Network specialise in Engineering and Manufacturing recruitment and I specialise in the Maintenance and Service market from entry level technician through to management level. My desk is very fast paced and extremely competitive and I recruit in a variety of sectors UK wide. This keeps me on my toes and stops the job from getting stale or repetitive as each client and candidate are unique in their own way.
Every day as a recruitment consultant brings new challenges no two days are the same. To be a successful recruitment consultant you must be able to switch between tasks and juggle fire sticks whilst doing kick ups... well at least you need to be able to manage difficult processes and make sure your time is being well spent (the company mantra after all is time well spent). I have quickly learnt that being organised and being able to plan your work in advanced is vital but at the same time you can not be rigid as you must adapt to whatever is thrown at you. With this in mine I have outlined a typical day as a recruitment consultant at Technical Network Recruitment. Not only do I have to prioritise my day but also the time of my team mates, Ben Price who is a dedicated resource within Maintenance and Service recruitment.
