PositionSenior Recruitment ConsultantSectorITHow long you been hereMarch 2020 - 2 years and 6 months Tell us about your career progression to date. When I first came into Morgan Hunt I joined the Corporate Services Team, under the Public Affairs and Policy division. However, the pandemic hit - I was in the office for my first two days, then we were all working remotely. At that moment in time, lobbying had paused. As you can imagine this caused the Job Market in this sector to change drastically overnight. However, I was resilient and used my time to mainly focus on my existing network and Business Development etc. Closer to November 2020, I was on furlough, this was a great time to reflect on my future career prospects at Morgan Hunt and have a little break. I was then delighted to join Clare’s team in the IT Division in January 2021! Since then I have not looked back! What made you join Recruitment/ Morgan Hunt? Since I graduated from University, I had always wanted to work in recruitment. I found it attractive due to the progression and career development opportunities. Also, the fact that I would be able to help candidates find their dream jobs. But in 2011, the recruitment industry was very different, with group interviews etc it was overwhelming. The very corporate organisations had very strict procedures etc. This was off putting. Also it usually would have been the person that shouted the loudest in a group interview who would be hired in my opinion! I joined Morgan Hunt by meeting the Corporate Services team as a candidate first. During that meeting, they highly valued my varied experience and suggested that I have an interview for working within Morgan Hunt itself! I couldn't say no due to the rare opportunity. The interview process was straightforward, and I was delighted to be hired directly by the line Manager and Director. What do you enjoy most about your desk/sector?I love working in the IT Division because I have a great team to work with, I am also privileged to have a Board Director as my manager, which has really helped my career development in Recruitment. IT is such an exciting sector to work in, due to the strong need for Tech Talent, now more than ever before. I like this fast – paced sector and the knowledge it brings. I also like the fact that most of our clients are in the charity or public sector. You know that you are making a difference every day to both clients and candidates! What is it like working for Morgan Hunt? It is great working for Morgan Hunt, because the company culture and the people make the difference. The work atmosphere is very positive and friendly.You really feel part of the Morgan Hunt family when you join here! I like volunteering outside of work, so it is nice that I am able to dedicate some days for that. I like the fact that it is not too corporate. For me, it almost feels like you are between working for a charity and a private sector - I can come to work in jeans! The people and ethos really make a positive difference. It is such a caring organisation and each person is recognised for their individual talent and contribution. Why would you recommend us to a potential internal Candidate? Company culture, friendly people, career progression opportunities and the ideal hybrid work set-up. There is a great social aspect to the role too, the office is well located in the City. People are very friendly and we all work as a Team to make the difference here.
