What degree did you do?
Using 3 to 5 words, how would you describe your personality?
Bubbly, Enthusiastic, Calm, Witty
Did you go straight into recruitment or do something else first?
After university I went straight into recruitment – got the job the same day I graduated!
How did you hear about Axcis?
There was a graduate recruitment fair at my university and we were advised to visit websites which were looking for grads to start – and Axcis were advertising on one of the website!
What made you apply for our grad scheme?
The fact that Axcis were looking for grads who didn’t necessarily have the experience, but were looking for people who had the drive. Training would be provided so I wouldn’t be thrown into the deep end. Progression within the company. An opportunity to learn and grow as we know how difficult it is for graduates to secure full time jobs after University
Did you know about recruitment and know what to expect when coming into the industry?
Before applying for the role I made sure I did my research so I knew it was not going to be an easy ride but to be honest this drew me in even more. I knew it would involve working long hours but then again I knew I would be rewarded for my hard work so this did not phase me. Whilst doing my research one quote that kept coming up was ‘each day is different in recruitment’ and this is definitely true which is what I love.
How did you find the training Axcis offered you?
Very useful and effective. You are taught everything you need to know so that when you are putting it into practice you feel confident.
What are the three best things about working for Axcis?
Great team around you. Opportunities for career progression and great commission structure.
What advice would you give other graduates who are thinking about a career in recruitment?
Do your research before applying for the role. If you have drive and determination, and are quite resilient then this role is for you.
What 3 attributes do you think are most important for any graduate who wants to do recruitment?
Resilience. Must be a people person. You need to want it for yourself – drive is key.
