What does a normal day working for Corecom look like?
A normal working day at Corecom for me starts at 8.30am with the morning meeting (which is one of my favourite parts of the day), but I do like to get into the office by 8am so that I can have a chat with colleagues, make a nice cup of coffee and get set for the day.
I work on the Test market and depending on the role I am working on, I source candidates from different platforms, spend a lot of time on the phone or on teams talking to candidates and clients, which I enjoy doing as I like to get to know people and hear about their stories. I enjoy building rapport with a variety of people.
What’s the best thing about working with the Corecom team?
I don’t just like working at Corecom, I love it! It’s unlike any other place I have ever worked in before, everyone is super welcoming, friendly and super supportive of each other.
How do you spend those well deserved days off?
When I am not working, I like to meet up with friends, go on city breaks, go for walks but I also like to invest in myself by reading books and listening to podcasts.
What job would you be terrible at?
What’s a piece of advice that has stuck with you?
Professional advice: Be yourself! Embrace who you are!
Non-professional advice: What if it turns out to be better than you expected?
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.
