I started working for Engage in August 2016 after being recommended to join by two of my close friends. Before this, I had no recruitment or sales experience, however, I was always made to feel like I had all the right traits and values to be able to succeed. The training I received from the outset gave me all the tools and confidence I needed to succeed. The on the job coaching provided by managers, team leaders and senior consultants meant that if I was ever unsure, I was offered help and invaluable advice which has lead to my success. Since I have started, I have had recommended two other friends to work at Engage as the journey I have had has been enjoyable, successful and very rewarding.
I am one of the team leaders here at Engage Education having been with the company for nearly 6 years. Before joining here I tried a few jobs including retail, estate agency to work in the markets selling flowers, but never really settled until I joined Engage Education.
An opportunity at Engage Education came up, which I was encouraged to take, and since then, I have very little regrets. From the first day, the team were very welcoming and it was clear that this wasn’t a typical “cut-throat” recruitment company. As long as you work hard, and take on the advice given, the company are very supportive towards their staff to ensure you are a success within the company. Whether it was helping with sales calls, to sharing good practice, the teamwork and ethics help us all to achieve our personal and company goals.
I have been at Engage Education for two and a half years previously working as a recruitment consultant within the Rec2Rec sector, as well as a Retail Team Leader having coming out of University with a degree in Psychology. After joining Engage, I felt extremely welcomed by everyone and was made to feel part of the Engage family very quickly with everyone offering their support and advice. It was very clear early on how Engage is ‘all in this together’ and I bought into it straight away and couldn’t wait to get started.
I thoroughly enjoy my time at Engage, I love knowing that we are always striving for more. We are always thinking of new ways that we can help service and support our candidates and clients and grow as a company. The tools at our disposal are like no other and ranks Engage above the rest.
