Stafffinders' Employee Story

Recruitment Resourcer

Dylan's Journey

Before I joined Stafffinders Recruitment Agency in September 2021, I worked in a Customer Service role. The main reason I moved from Customer Service to Recruitment was that there was no room for improvement or progression in my last job. Since joining Stafffinders, I have learned how a recruitment agency works and new ways to communicate with both candidates and clients, and I am eager to learn even more in the coming future. One thing I really enjoy is speaking directly with clients and selling them the reasons why a certain candidate is a great fit for the role. The work environment here is also great. Every day is different and there’s always a great energy about the place, both on the consultant floor and downstairs in Marketing and Accounts.

Recruitment Consultant

Ben's Journey

After graduating from University, I joined Stafffinders as a Recruitment Resourcer within the Hospitality Team in Edinburgh. I was then quickly promoted to Recruitment Consultant where I continue to work with the Edinburgh Hospitality Team which is going from strength to strength. I have learned so much since joining Stafffinders. As a Resourcer, I learned administrative skills, timekeeping, working in an office environment, and most importantly how to communicate effectively with the public through recruiting candidates and caring for them. As a Consultant, I have developed skills such as client care, business development, negotiating skills, and how to remain organised whilst dealing with lots of candidates. I will have all of these transferable skills for the rest of my life which I can’t be thankful enough for.
