Job role: Trainee Recruitment Consultant
Specialism: MEP Design and Sustainability - Northern-England & Scotland
I joined Conrad Consulting in April 2021- I'm very privileged to become part of the hard-working and dedicated team here. I am most looking forward to gaining knowledge and skills within the recruitment industry, and becoming a valued asset to the business. After I had finished high school, I secured a sales and customer service apprenticeship which gave me valued workplace skills from the age of just 16 at the time, after the completion of that apprenticeship I enrolled into an IT course at college for a year in order to gain future-proofed skills, which allowed me to form a competitive CV.
Once I saw the vacant role to join the Conrad team I immediately applied. The reason Conrad stood out to me was because of their display of high standards and levels of professionalism as a company. As well as the company’s reputation, the position being a customer service focused role within a different industry, proposed new challenges and a valued opportunity to learn new skills from the experienced team here at Conrad.
Within my previous sales/customer service apprenticeship within a small freight forwarding company, I was resposible for providing competitively- priced services to clients in the UK and overseas. I believe that this role laid the foundations to a solid understanding of how to build up a strong relationship between customers and the company. Also within that role, I was responsible for predominantly speaking to clients whose first language was not English- this taught me patience, resilience and responsibility to bridge and overcome the language barrier in order to build a respect and understanding between the company and overseas clients.
Outside of work, I'm a member of the Suffolk Punch Boxing club where I partake in regular boxing training sessions, as well as having opportunities to get involved with charity matches with them to raise money for great causes. However, when I am not channelling my inner Rocky! I am an avid watcher of Formula 1 and meeting up with mates for a good laugh.
My ambitions for the near future, are to learn and develop key skills within the recruitment industry to guarantee a professional and highly appreciated service for our clients here at Conrad.
