Impact Placement with Joely
My time at Impact has been the most awe-inspiring placement I
have ever had the pleasure of undertaking.
Day one is always a nerve-wracking day regardless of if you're
permanent or temporary; add in a tube strike and you can imagine
how I felt. Walking in I was greeted by one of the warmest
personalities you could ever be greeted with, followed with beaming
smiles from everyone in the office, which put all my day one nerves
to rest. I could tell from conversations in the first meeting and
tea/coffee conversations in the kitchen, everyone was genuinely
willing to help without any hesitation. It's easy to see how
passionate they all are to work, not only within recruitment, but
for the company.
Julia, Joint MD, took a risk with offering a placement to
someone like me, an aspiring HR professional, enabling me to really
understand the business from the inside. Not only was I
working within one of the faces of HR, I was working within the HR
division alongside Lisa and Fliss. From the time I spent with
the team I feel I have grown a lot, from understanding of the
hierarchy and titling across businesses, to what contributes to
being an HR professional, and fundamentally how important and
integral HR is to a business.
I would like to thank the whole of the Impact team for making me
feel so welcome - Julia, Lisa and Fliss for answering every silly
question and Nick for getting me through the door which has enabled
me to have this opportunity, ultimately contributing to the start
of my HR career.
