What motivates you to get up in the morning?
I am lucky enough to be surrounded by people who motivate me daily. I look at what everyone around me is achieving at Carrington West and I am grateful for the fact I have found myself a career within an extremely successful company which offers great progression.
What is your favourite thing about working for Carrington West?
The people I work with. Carrington West is like one big family, we all work together. I love the buzzy atmosphere in the office and the fact that when things are tough everyone is so supportive of each other.
What has been the highlight of your time at Carrington West?
Being promoted to a consultant. I started off at Carrington West as an Associate Consultant, learning the market and supporting the consultants in my team. This has been my first quarter as a consultant and I have built up strong relationships with clients and had some successful job fills.
What has been your biggest challenge at work so far?
I am still fairly new to recruitment and feel as though my biggest challenges are yet to come. However, understanding and being able to explain IR35 has been a big challenge, as it is so important to be able to support candidates and clients through the upcoming changes.
What would your advice be to anyone starting their career at Carrington West?
Take it all in but most importantly - ask questions. It's normal to feel overwhelmed when you’re new. However, you are learning from the best and Carrington West offers amazing training. Never be embarrassed to ask the questions/things to be explained again as there is so much to learn.
