Before gaining employment as a recruitment consultant I was working as a teacher. I found I was struggling to find jobs which fitted my skills set and gave me a varied work life. I also found people were not keen to employ me due to lack of office experience.
I started with Meridian as an internal temp but quickly became a permanent member of staff. I have been given so many new opportunities and scope for development. My day to day work life is very varied; one day I could be registering candidates and the next I can be on sales visits. The best part about recruitment is receiving a phone call from a candidate who has been offered a job and being thanked for helping change their career.
Working for Meridian has been fantastic for my career. They are a fantastic company who take pride in promoting internally. The atmosphere is fantastic in the offices and it feels like one big family!
