Many people ask me why, having a sales career already, I decided to move into recruitment? Well, to be honest, I have always had a keen interest in recruitment, and had tried to get into it before I started on my journey to becoming a sales professional, but the timing was never right & I didn’t get the opportunity.
My introduction to Cast UK has been, I have to say, something of a whirlwind! Beforehand, I was excited at the prospect of joining as I knew was coming into a business that has ambitious plans, something that Wayne, our MD took the time to explain to me during the interview process.
Even before my official first day, I attended a strategy day in London with the leadership team, to discuss our plans & targets and setting the scene for a big 2018. Its fair to say I have had to hit the ground running not walking in order to keep up!
