Meet Simon – Recruitment Consultant

Simon’s Story

I joined NRG just over 8  years ago after graduating from Northumbria University with a 2.1 BA Hons in Business Management. I started with 3 other students on NRG’s graduate programme. My first impressions were great, the team was really friendly. I was given a comprehensive development plan and started a number of training courses; all designed to get me up to speed with the recruitment industry. I had the chance to try lots of new things and I wasn’t just the tea boy! I was helping to source candidates for roles and worked to reach out to new clients, all of this in my first few weeks.

I love the variation of the role and the opportunities I’ve been given. Working on projects for senior level executive search and selection to the management of recruitment campaigns for manufacturers. I’ve now found my niche within the Engineering / Technical Team working as a Senior Consultant. In any given week I could be working with employers to find suitable staff and  matching positions to the candidates I know.

I’m a confident person with good communication skills. My sales experience is an advantage too as we all work towards targets and negotiate deals with clients. Joining NRG was certainly the right decision for me and I’m looking forward to staying here for many years to come.

If you are a hardworking, committed individual who thrives in a fast-paced environment then you could become an integral part of the NRG team. We are currently recruiting consultants to support the recruitment of finance, IT, science, sales and marketing professionals.
