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.

My first week at Impact has been a breath of fresh air, a completely different vibe to my previous role in estate agency and I have loved it!

How would you describe the culture and working environment?

The working environment here is genuinely something I have been looking for, for a very long time! Its such a positive space to be in, so many optimistic, genuine and successful individuals in the same space is something that is usually quite hard to come by, but I feel as if impact have hit the nail on the head with the team!
