1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:


My role is a Candidate Consultant at Adecco, my job role involves calling candidates, managing social media, hitting targets and going on visits to new companies.

2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?


Yes I have learnt new communication skills and more about Microsoft packages such as Excel and Power point. I have also learnt a lot about the recruitment industry and how to be successful.

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?


I really enjoy my programme as it allows learning on the job, I do sometimes find it hard to manage a full time job along with my programme however it is all worth it. I work really well with my team as well and have grown as a person.

4. How valued do you feel by Adecco Group?


I feel really valued, I was invited to the annual conference and am given regular one to ones which helps me keep track of my progress. The training is really thorough too which helps me again learn and develop in my role.

I receive a lot of support from both my branch manager and my ops manager. If I ever have a problem they are always on hand to guide or support me.

7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?


I feel that my salary does meet my costs, ideally I would be looking for a salary increase if made permanent due to travelling 30 minutes to work and paying parking every day.

8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?


Yes we participate in many charity events and allowed various benefits such as health care insurance and love 2 shop vouchers. I feel like there could be more zone activities though.

Because I feel they are a really good company to work for, open to progression and there to support you through development. They also provide good benefits which is a bonus.

10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to Adecco Group?

Sign up with the agency themselves as that is how I got the role. I would also say prep a lot for the presentation in the interview process as it is essential to show your personality.
