In our latest series of blogs we are going to be hearing from each member of the team here at iMultiply Resourcing. Our third blog in the series is from Fiona Riding, Operations Manager at iMultiply. Fiona tells us about her background, why she loves recruitment and why iMultiply are so great.
My background & experience
My very first role within recruitment was within a large multinational company which gave me a great grounding in the industry. Over the years i've gained experience within a variety of disciplines including Property, IT, Pharmaceuticals and Accountancy & Finance.
How I got into recruitment and why I love it
Like a lot of people in recruitment, I got into it by accident. I registered with an agency and a week later received a phone call to ask if I would like to work in their office on a temporary basis to cover the busy Christmas period. I thought “why not?” and gave it a go. It wasn't long before I left my role within Financial Services to pursue a career in recruitment. I love recruitment because I’ve always had an interest in careers and I enjoy the variety and buzz of working with people.
I love working for iMultiply and i'm not just saying that because my boss is going to read this...!
It’s a great culture, we are all very hard-working and are encouraged to share ideas and develop the business. The great thing about working for a company like iMultiply is the autonomy and trust given to each member of the team to make a real difference. The results speak for themselves, the business has been profitable, even in it's first year.
What makes us better than the other agencies?
The team really enjoy what they do and we are all lucky to work in a position that plays to each our strengths. We all have a background in recruitment so we know what works and what doesn’t.
My best piece of recruitment advice
In a competency based interview there can be a degree of flexibility with examples you can use, however it’s important to answer the question being asked not the question you want to answer.
