What does a normal day working for Corecom look like?

A typical day for me will start at 6am, up and showered (if I don’t drag myself up at 6 it ruins my mood for the day), wake my two daughters up (3 or 4 times before they eventually get up) and then drop them both at school before my husband and me head off to work.

My working day starts at 8:15am, I like to catchup on emails and LinkedIn messages before the whole office joins our morning meeting at 8:30am. It’s a great opportunity to catchup but it’s also a great motivator, hearing what everyone has achieved or what they aim to achieve helps you to stay accountable for your own efforts.

Following our office meeting I go straight into our contract team meeting, working as a team to set out our day plans and goals.

During lunch I like to get out of the office, either for a quick walk or lunch with others in the office. I didn’t really get a lunch previously so this still feels like a real perk to me.

At the end of the day I am off home to my girls, husband and our cocker spaniel Evie. We eat dinner together every evening, generally something the kids have chosen, luckily they have great taste!

I am normally in bed and fast asleep by 10pm, so not much to talk about in the evening.

What’s the best thing about working with the Corecom team?

I love working at Corecom because the company’s values are exactly what I was looking for when searching for my recruitment role, but my main love here is just how many different personalities we have in the office, it would be boring to work with a group of carbon copies.

How do you spend those well deserved days off?

Outside of work I spend a lot of time with the girls and my husband, either walking the dog and exploring Yorkshire or working on our house (we bought a fixer upper).

What job would you be terrible at?

I would be a terrible taxi driver (just ask my husband).

What’s a piece of advice that has stuck with you?

To be successful in recruitment I think you need to start the right way, spend the first part of your career really working on perfecting the basics and build from there.

What I wanted from this partnership was to be able to take a step back and free me up to focus on my other responsibilities in addition to recruitment. Working with Corecom alone made everything so straight forward. I wasn’t having to chase up several agencies and there was no duplication of candidates. Tunstall was their no1 focus and I trusted them to deliver, which they did. There was noticeable improvements in CV-to-interview and interview-to-placement ratios which was a real pain point before changing the model on how we worked together. Working on a retained basis gave me confidence that extra effort and resource would be put in to filling the roles.
