Kristian's Settling in Nicely...

How time flies! Kristian, our newest recruitment consultant, has been with us for 5 months! We caught up with him to see how he's finding life at Juice:

What have you enjoyed the most about working for Juice so far?

We’ve been on some interesting client visits so far which I’ve enjoyed! We recently got a grand tour of Production Park in South Kirkby, so we got to see all the props and stages that were made for the likes of Robbie Williams etc. A few weeks before, they were giving the same tour to Hugh Jackman of all people. Apparently I’m better looking though!

What’s Juice like to work for?

It's a brilliant company to work for, they really look after their staff and have fun whilst doing it!

What does your role entail day-to-day?

I work alongside Kelly in the Commercial department. Day-to-day I am either out and about speaking with businesses about their recruitment needs, or in the office finding candidates for those businesses and inviting them in for an interview. Or deciding what to have for lunch...

What do you think makes Juice different to other recruitment companies?

My recruitment background so far has seen me work for only large national agencies, so it was a completely different change for me to join an independent firm. Whilst I enjoyed my time working for those national agencies, I’m much preferring the ‘family feel’ of Juice. We’re an honest bunch of people that will tell you how it is! You could say we have a refreshing approach to recruitment.

Have there been any challenges?

Understanding Kieran's and Ian’s Barnsley accents has been my biggest challenge to date!

What has Juice got coming up that you’re looking forward to?

We’re one of the main sponsors at the Wakefield Hospice Annual Event this November, so I’m sure that will be a good night!

What do you do in your spare time?

My girlfriend and I had a son called Carter last year. He’s just turned 1, so most of my spare time is used making him happy, visiting play centres and swimming pools!

When I bag a pass for the weekend, you’ll find me with a pint of Strongbow down the local with my mates, or watching the football!

Keeping with the theme of recruitment, I think we put that onto CVs as ‘Family time and socialising with friends’!

What do you love about recruitment?

Mostly I think it’s the wide variety of people from all different walks of life that I get to meet on a daily basis. Whether that’s listening to clients stories about how they built their business from scratch, or candidates talking about what they’ve done in life – there’s always an interesting story!

We've hugely enjoyed having Kristian on board for the last 5 months. Here's to many more!

"Wow, what can I say about Juice Personnel. Just that you are the ONLY agency that has ben honest and fair to me when I have been in need. I have always had swift responses, been offered fantastic opportunities and been provided with a friendly voice at the end of the phone too. When I lost my job you provided me with a temporary income that meant that I could worry a little less about accepting a job that I didn't want just to pay the bills, this was something I was passionate about. I cant really some up how I feel in to words, but a local, honest, friendly, but a professional company and without a doubt the best that I have ever come across and believe me, I have come across several in my career search. Your team are the only members of recruitment that I will allow on my linked in, think that's testimony to your company. Hope you can take something from the above."
