What is it like to work with the Ellis Recruitment Group? Why would you join? Vinny Hoddinott is our Head of People and one of the main people you would speak to when considering taking a job with the Ellis Recruitment Group. We caught up with her and asked her some of the key questions that new recruits ask during their interview:
The Ellis Recruitment Group have always been proud of the development of our existing sales team, many of whom had not previously worked within the sales environment. Many entered the recruitment industry with the Ellis Recruitment Group and started their recruitment training from scratch – we enjoy seeing them continue to exceed expectations.
We decided to take this entry-level career plan a step further by implementing our Accelerate Recruitment Training programme. What sets our recruitment training apart from others is that we do not target a specific demographic. Those who join our scheme are serious about building a career in recruitment; they demonstrate that they can live our values, have commitment, passion, resilience, and have great personalities.
Alongside the Accelerate Recruitment Training, we are committed to evolving our people’s careers, understanding their drivers, and supporting their growth. From our mentoring scheme to the cross-brand knowledge sharing – it’s great seeing everyone develop.
The people! We have a fantastic, diverse team and a supportive culture. We are passionate about our ‘always listening’ approach – everyone has a voice, and we are always interested in our teams’ ideas and recommendations. We continue to develop an engaging culture.
One of the reasons that I joined Ellis Recruitment was the value placed on people and the focus on growth. Our passion is creating a culture that everyone wants to be a part of; the focus is on the development of people and an environment of positive change.
We never compromise on quality when recruiting for our team; we seek alignment with our values and understand their “Why.” Recruitment is not easy, but the rewards are high, and if you want to succeed, you need a “Why!” Everyone in our team brings something unique to the table, but all have a passion for success.
Our internal recognition scheme is just one way in which we celebrate our values. Each quarter, I have the great job of recognising our Ellis Star, which is awarded based on our company values. I am proud that everyone has embraced the scheme and the volume of recognition activity continues to increase month on month, where everyone can officially recognise their colleagues across our global team.
