Job role: Trainee Recruitment Consultant
Specialism: Construction & Renewables
I Joined Conrad Consulting after noticing an eye-catching job advert which offered the opportunity to become part of a professional, hard working and tight knit company which offered a family like environment. I had no hesitation in applying as I was keen to become part of the Conrad team and learn to develop into a reliable, highly skilled recruitment consultant.
This is my first role within recruitment and I am excited to have been given the opportunity to develop my skills by learning from experienced professionals. My aim at Conrad is to become both a top recruiter and a valued member of the team.
Conrad stood out to me as it was clear that the company works hard to ensure that high standards that are set and achieved. I have discovered that recruitment is more than simply finding people in work; it is offers a personalised and transparent service that allows relationships built on trust to grow and develop.
Before joining Conrad I had previous experience within customer facing roles. After leaving school I joined the Haulage/Transport industry where I was the main point of contact for the office ensuring container deliveries were booked correctly. I then moved into freight forwarding where I handled customer accounts and booked deliveries with Haulage companies. Following this I moved into the telecommunications industry as an engineer installing Fibre Broadband into customers houses. These roles have helped me develop the necessary skills to interact with customers and fulfil their needs to a high standard. The skills I have acquired have enabled me to build relationships and feel confident when interacting with people via telephone or face to face.
Outside of work I enjoy keeping busy and active. I play football for a local team which takes up most Saturday’s and some evenings and when I’m not playing football I try to watch it as much as I can. I have supported Liverpool for as long as I can remember. This started from a love of watching Steven Gerrard play when I was younger. When I’m not running around after a football I also go to the gym (mostly for the sauna!) and I enjoy days out and spending time with friends and family outside of work.
