Why apply for a job as Recruitment Consultant?
Well, I can tell you that this is certainly not the case and I'm speaking from experience! Prior to joining the Rainbow team, I worked for another recruitment agency.
When I started working at Rainbow Resources Group, I made my choice for different reasons: I found the small structure appealing, as it would give me the opportunity to learn many things, at my own pace.
Secondly, the values of Rainbow spoke to me personally: Care, Trust, Fun and Diversity. You may think that values are just "corporate marketing words", but here, I could really sense that these were not just words, but a way of working and living!
What also attracted me to go for this job were the PEOPLE I was going to work with. Honestly, can you name one single agency that has someone like Alison Peever in its team? A lady with more than thirty years experience in the field and in the same agency! Leading the team is another strong personality in the recruitment world: Frank Vande Voorde: a talented businessman with more than twenty years experience in the recruitment field and who worked for major global recruitment firms.
I must say, I felt somewhat overawed during my interviews with these people. I was wondering what I would be able to bring to the company, as a little shrimp with only three years of recruitment experience. Well, it was the best choice I have made in my career so far. The things I discovered, the path I walked, the training I was given… these are all things I would never have found in a standard recruitment agency where consultants are paid on commission and under the pressure of unrealistic targets.
As a person, I must say that figures and numbers do not motivate me. I am more a people person: if I have a good feeling about you, I will go the extra mile and even further. Of course I am not working for an amusement or a recreation park. We are still focussed on obtaining results and on building the business. I believe, however that this can be done in a long-term, relationship-building way and not in a short-term, figures-oriented way.
