What does a normal day working for Corecom look like?

Depending whether I am in the office or not (perks of hybrid working), my day usually starts at around 7am however this will soon change as I’m just about to get a dog – buzzin! Then a quick bite to eat at around 7:15am (usually porridge) which sets me up for the rest of the day. We have our daily morning meeting at 8:30am which usually lasts until around 9am. I crack on with work from 9am – 1pm where we then have our 1 hour lunch break. Usually consists of a stroll around Leeds if I’m in the office or a gym session if I’m WFH. Daily lunchtime catchup at 2pm-2:15pm and then I finish just after 6pm.

Depending what day it is, usually I hit the gym after work or go to football training (on Tuesdays and Thursdays). I’m also a sucker for a series on Netflix! 

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

I have worked at Corecom since January 2020. I started more or less straight out of University and enjoy every second… even though most of it was during the pandemic. I work with likeminded people who want to work hard and make the best for themselves and we are one big team at Corecom! And obviously I have to mention the social aspect of working here! I would genuinely go for a pint with ANYONE in the Company!

How do you spend those well deserved days off?

Cliché in recruitment (if you know, you know) but I spend a lot of my time renovating my house that I bought with my girlfriend back in June 2021. It’s such an exciting project that we have massive plans for so every spare minute I get is spent making improvements to the house! I also play football on a weekend for a Saturday team and you can occasionally catch me at Old Trafford if I can bag a ticket!

What job would you be terrible at? 

Funnily enough, you wouldn’t catch me being a handyman / tradesman – absolutely 0 common sense. Helps when you’re trying to renovate a house!

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

From my mate Skepta – Never count the days, make the days count

What people say about us
We’re proud to be a 5-star rated company on Google. See what people say about us.

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.
