​The FJ Friday Feature Blog gives a chance for our candidates and clients to get to know our team better. This week's FJ Friday Feature speaks with our Talent Consultant Sophie Thomas, who has recently passed her probation! Sophie is based in our Didsbury office and is smashing her goals with her team at Talentskowt.


1. What initially got you into recruitment?

Very boring but I just got lucky! I knew I wanted to be in a fast paced sales environment and I love building relationships with new people so recruitment was a great fit. Plus its an environment where I can work hard and be rewarded, so it was a no brainer.

 

2. What are your favourite things about working at FJ/Talentskowt?

I love the fact everyone in the team support each other – all the small wins are celebrated and everyone encourages the teams success. I’ve made friends for life here! That along with the opportunities FJ provide - there are constant incentives to grow personally and professionally and there are so many opportunities to grow with the company. The yoga sessions and zoom quizzes are also a bonus!!

 

3. What goals do you have for the next 5 years?

I’m someone who has a new goal every week, I try and focus on the short term goals that will help me achieve the long term – that being to have a house of my own (boring I know). I do have an unhealthy obsession with shoes so I’ll tend to have a monthly goal of a new pair of shoes I like..

 

4. What you recommend to someone who is just starting up in recruitment?

Stay positive, very cliché but recruitment is a rollercoaster – with every down there’s definitely a massive up. Work hard, stick to the basics and you will do well!

 

5. Describe your perfect, non-work day.

A sunny day spent with friends in a beer garden is my ideal day! That or a cosy Sunday watching Netflix.
