What does a day in the life of an associate recruiter look like?

First things first, I need my caffeine hit to hit the ground running in our fast-paced environment. An oat latte made by the fab WeWork barista, Errol, does the trick. Then, the Creative & Marketing team meet every morning to go over the roles we have on, discuss candidates, and determine the goals for the day ahead. My colleague Ferhan on the Creative desk, and Mark from Marketing, will suggest roles to work on and then vroom! Off I go headhunting, registering candidates and working with the wider team to make placements.

Describe the work culture and environment at Impact

“Could it be any nicer an environment?” – Chandler Bing.

But for real, Impact is one of the best places I have worked in relation to the support and encouragement from all staff (is there a cooler word for staff? Shall we say Unicorns? They’re all magical). Everyone wants everyone to do well and make placements, and when we do we celebrate. It is a culture that is rewarding and encourages you to succeed.

Tell us about your best experience so far working with Impact

I made a placement for an incredible graphic/UI designer with one of our gaming clients. Delivering the news that he had booked the job was a feeling like no other!

Where’s your favourite lunch spot?

Easy. Falafel wrap down the road. If I’m feeling spicy I’ll chuck a bit of halloumi into the mix. Delish.

Desert Island Discs! What three records and one book can you not live without?

Purpose by Justin Bieber (obviously), Any record ever by Charli XCX, MOTOMAMI by Rosalia. In terms of books, I revisit Fine on Acting by Howard Fine time and time again. A must-read for any theatre or film-maker!

Share your number one tip you tell your candidates to help them get their next role!

Let your personality and creativity shine through. We want you to succeed, the client wants you to succeed – we are all rooting for you!
