"Aaron Wallis done a great job in finding the right calibre of candidate for this role. I will be in touch with you when I need my next position filling. I don't think it will be too long."
In June 2011 I graduated from the University of the West of England with a BSc (Hons) in Sports Coaching Science.
I quickly moved into employment with Triline Fitness taking on the position of Programme Manager and Instructor. The programme management aspect of the role helped start my development in the sales industry. I sold the service into numerous markets from public sector organisations to various SME’s.
Upon researching the sales industry further and speaking to friends and acquaintances who were involved in recruitment I realised this was something that would benefit me professionally, personally and financially. Since starting here at Aaron Wallis I haven’t looked back and believe that I have found a career where your hard work pays off, and pays in cash not just kudos.
My role at Aaron Wallis is to take detailed job briefs from employers and ensure that I provide the best candidate for their vacancy. In order to do this I apply a very consultative approach and build a trusting relationship with both my clients and candidates. A characteristic of my style in recruitment is continuous communication between myself, my clients and my candidates. This ensures that everybody involved knows where they stand which enables the whole process to run smoothly.
Reasons for my repeated success within the recruitment industry are down to the fact that I am very reliable, efficient, dedicated, loyal and trustworthy. Companies enjoy working with me as I believe you should always treat others how you want to be treated. This approach enables me to have on-going relationships with my clients and candidates so that we can work with one another in the future should the opportunity arise.
