In our latest series of blogs we are going to be hearing from each member of the team here at iMultiply. Our sixth blog in the series is from Lewis Cavanagh, Resourcer at iMultiply
My background & experience
When I finished my final year at The Royal High School, I was still undecided as to what career path I was looking to go down. I decided the best thing to do would be save up some pennies and go travelling around Australia and New Zealand. After a few months I returned home to Edinburgh and began working with the mobile phone company Phones 4u, which is where I gained great customer service experience...
How I got into recruitment
After spending 3 and a half years with Phones 4u, I was looking for a company that truly valued customer service and would be a great use of my people skills. After a couple of applications being sent out to a selected group of companies, iMultiply Resourcing came across as an organisation that was a great match for me.
A day in the life
Luckily the iMultiply Resourcing offices are only a short 20 minute walk away from where I live. I always wake up in the morning raring to go for the day ahead. I spend the majority of the morning speaking with candidates who have applied for positions we have advertised. In the afternoon I usually keep in touch with candidates about vacancies and new opportunities which allows us to keep up our high standards of customer service.
When I interviewed with Fiona, Kirsty and John I immediately got the impression that iMultiply was a company that I wanted to join and be a part of. Throughout my career, I always received excellent reviews from customers and clients and iMultiply’s values match with my own.
What makes us better than the other agencies?
The enthusiasm we have for getting a candidate their dream job or finding a client their dream employee. We stand out due to the high standard of service we provide and are changing the perception of the recruitment industry.
My best piece of recruitment advice
Applying for every single job advert under the sun can be an ineffective way to find a new job. Not knowing which advert you applied for could be portrayed as unprofessional and maybe isn't a great sign if an organisation or agency contact you.
Applying for carefully selective opportunities and having a detailed knowledge of what roles you have applied for makes it a lot easier to manage your job search.
A little bit about me outside work
I have a huge passion for all things football, whether it is watching or playing 5-a-sides a couple of nights each week. I am a lover of pretty much every genre of music but I especially love EDM (electronic dance music). I also like catching up with TV shows on Netflix like The U.S. Office and Its Always Sunny in Philidelphia.
