Welcome Daniel!

We welcome Daniel to the team, who will be enhancing Impact’s offering across the D&I spectrum and will be placing specialist ED&I roles, recruiting more diverse candidates into generalist roles and much more! With a strong career history in recruitment, we are delighted to have him on our team.

Tell us about yourself!

I’m a Nigerian-born Refugee with a Recruitment background in Higher Education, Professional and Financial Services. Throughout my career, I’ve been passionate about ED&I and mental health awareness and have worked with organisations and charities on various projects and campaigns. Outside my 9-5, I enjoy volunteering, singing, spending time with friends, at the gym or cooking some Nigerian jollof rice.

Why did you choose Impact?

This was a slightly difficult one for me as I had a few other offers on the table. However, the opportunity from Impact felt like The One given my passion for ED&I and interest in the media and creative industry.  I also had a very positive experience and vibe during the interview process and had the opportunity to learn about their long-term commitment to ED&I.

How has your first week gone?

Amazing! Everyone on the team has been super nice and supportive. I’ve learnt more about our media and creative clients and network and the background music in the office creates a fun vibe. Love it here!

What is your remit at Impact?

I will be enhancing Impact’s offering across the D&I spectrum and will be placing specialist ED&I roles, recruiting more diverse candidates into generalist roles and hosting and co-hosting HR/EDI roundtable discussions and events with their high-profile Media and Creative Clients and Network.

What type of Impact’ do you hope to make?

To engage and raise awareness on ED&I issues as well as support our clients to diversify their workforce by placing ED&I roles and recruiting more diverse candidates into generalist positions. Also looking forward to organising and hosting as many ED&I events throughout the year.

Welcome Emma!

With a strong career history in HR recruitment, Emma is the newest member of Impact HQ as a Senior Consultant in our HR sector. With a career history in recruitment spanning from in-house small media agencies, to 360 recruitment, Emma’s got what it takes to match amazing talent with their dream jobs and add value to both candidates and clients! 

 

Tell us about your experience?

I started my recruitment career in-house for a small media agency, and after deciding I was ready for a new challenge I decided to take the leap into 360 recruitment with a specific focus on HR, which I loved. Having worked in HR previously it seemed like the perfect fit for my experience and knowledge, and after taking some time away to try my hand at rec2rec, I couldn’t be happier to be back where I belong! 

Why did you choose Impact?

Impact immediately stood out as a place where diversity is important and celebrated. The culture and the values speak for themselves and, when you add the incredible client base that’s been built over the last 20 years, it’s difficult not to be impressed!

How has your first week gone?

My first week was a whirlwind of meeting new people, getting up to speed, navigating a new office, and enjoying after-work drinks with my new team. Not to mention, my first week ended with the Impact summer party, which was incredible! The whole team have made every effort to make me feel welcome and I couldn’t feel more at home. 

How would you describe the culture and working environment?

Everyone is genuinely ecstatic to be at work every day – and as cheesy as it sounds, it does feel like a big family. Nick and Jules are brilliant mentors and encourage everyone to be themselves, so you feel instantly at ease from your very first day. 

Having joined as a Senior Consultant in our Support Division, what type of ‘impact’ do you hope to make?

I hope to make a name for myself in the HR space and continue with the amazing partnerships Nick and Jules have built over the last 21 years – but mostly, I can’t wait to match amazing talent with their dream jobs and add value to both my candidates and clients.

Unclear about Data Protection?

Unclear about Data Protection? Impact and Stone King have you covered!

Having just got comfortable (ish) with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), now that the UK has left the EU, a new “UK version” of the GDPR is on the way.

So, potentially, organisations will need to understand not one but two versions of the GDPR; the UK GDPR and the EU GDPR.

Impact are delighted to partner with Paula Williamson, Partner & Head of Information Law at Stone King LLP who will lead our discussion and answer your questions on all things data protection.

Understand the key changes to UK data protection law as a result of Brexit and whether we are in for a rough ride or plain sailing.

We will cover data breaches; how to recognise one, how to handle them and how to prevent them.

You’ll also have the opportunity to share your top data protection queries and our legal partner will tackle them in our Q&A Session.

This breakfast event will be held on Thursday 23rd April at 08.30 – 10.00am.  Register your interest at enquiries@impact-london.com
