I joined Talent in January and I was instantly taken aback by how fun and vibrant the office was. I initially spent a week with all the other graduates from around the country, learning the basics and getting to grips with the role. This was a great chance to bond with others in the same position while learning more about Talent.
Getting settled at my desk was made surprisingly easy by the others in my team. Any problem I had was answered and everyone is here to give advice if you need it. The best way to describe the atmosphere in the office is ‘work hard play hard(er)’. If you make a deal, you’re guaranteed to have the whole office joining you at the pub to celebrate. It’s fair to say we like to celebrate any win, big or small.
I focus on the permanent creative market in London. This market is really broad which keeps it interesting, and I place anyone from user researchers to UX/UI Designers. I spend my time consulting clients on the type of designer they need for their product. It’s really interesting looking at different portfolios and seeing how complex designs come about.
Hitting targets is always matched with some sort of reward. So far, I’ve spent days out bowling and getting ridiculously competitive at beer pong (my team won!) It’s nice to know that your hard work is being recognised.
Most recruitment agencies struggle with retention of staff – however, my team at Talent has only continued to grow since I joined and we are about to welcome four more people on my desk alone.
My first AGM was quite an experience. I was constantly putting faces to names I had heard of, whether they were top billers or new graduates. To paint the picture: at 3am, I was still dancing alongside our COO, directors, training manager, senior consultants and new grads that had joined that week. I am looking forward to next year already!
I imagined my first job would be dull and tedious but that couldn’t be further from what my first eight months have been.
I can’t wait to see what comes next!
