I had worked for large, corporate organisations for over ten years and I realised that I wanted the opportunity to shape my own career and try out new ideas. Working at Distinct offers me that and so much more. Their ethos and values mirror mine which is very important to me, and the trust and belief that they have in their employees is unlike anything I’ve experienced before. When Distinct offered me an opportunity to set up an IT contract desk in my own way with their full support, I jumped at it and haven’t looked back.
Nowadays, every recruitment agency is trying to get away from the salesy and untrustworthy image that our industry is tarred with. So when I joined Distinct on a promise that they “really are different” I was sceptical. Within a few months of joining I was blown away because they actually lived up to that promise. We are open & honest, treat people as we hope to be treated and are all working towards the same goal of delivering great service in our respective markets.
After spending a year setting up the contract desk, I was asked to take on more responsibility and start recruiting the permanent roles as well. It’s a fresh & exciting challenge for me and I love being able to consult with both clients and candidates & service all of their needs.
