Consultant For Temporary Recruitment
An Interview with Georgia
Authentic Recruitment, Welcome's our newest team member and temporary recruitment consultant, Georgia Bolton. Here's what she had to say to our Digital Marketing Manager, Leigh Gillatt.
Leigh: Welcome Georgia, I hear you're settling in really well into your new role with Authentic Recruitment. Jamie Griggs (Sheffield Branch Manager) and Lindsay Macpherson (Group Managing Director) have been telling me how excited they are to have you on board and are looking forward to working with you!
I'd just like to ask you a few questions so our readers can learn a little more about you.
What has been the best thing that’s happened for you so far in 2018?
Georgia: OK – this is probably quite a cringe worthy answer but if I’m being completely honest……….. Joining the Authentic Recruitment & Diverse Employment Group. Finding my next move within the Recruitment industry proved to be very difficult and more often than not, quite disheartening. Being given this opportunity to succeed is without a doubt the best part of this year so far.
Leigh: Why did you choose to join Authentic & the Diverse group?
Georgia: I believe in the vision of the group - as a consultant it’s incredibly important to me that I am selling a service I believe in. I was also drawn to Authentic / Diverse due to the rapid levels of growth within the business; I enjoy being a part of smaller, growing companies, as it’s exciting, as opposed to a business which has peaked in growth where there is no scope or future visions to be involved with.
Leigh: How did you get into recruitment?
Georgia: A consultant I know suggested I give it a try, as I can talk the back legs off a donkey and am very sociable, he figured I would be a good fit for the industry. Nothing very romantic or astonishing I’m afraid - I think most consultants will admit they ‘fell’ into the industry. It’s worked out well for me so thanks to that consultant for the suggestion!
Leigh: What potential do you see for temporary recruitment services, specifically in Sheffield?
Georgia: There’s a lot of scope in temporary work at the moment – particularly in Sheffield bearing in mind it is a city which is growing rapidly in terms of business and projects to be had.
Leigh: What would be your top tip for temps looking for work in the area currently?
Georgia: Well, firstly, I would of course suggest they get in touch with me!
Secondly, to put themselves out there and keep an open mind. Fast response in terms of communication is also critical – most consultants will have a very short time frame to turn around the booking, therefore to give themselves the best option of obtaining work and to make the process fluent, I would advise all temps to keep eyes on their emails, phones and return documents i.e. application packs as soon as possible.
Leigh: What are you looking forward to most over the next 3 months?
Georgia: Development – both personally and for the business. I’m very ambitious and extremely excited to further develop my skills and knowledge in the industry.
Leigh: What’s your number one vice or guilty pleasure?
Georgia: Jelly babies and Keeping up with The Kardashians – guilty as charged, I know.
