Beth is our first Intern to join the team, here in Shrewsbury. Although we work with local schools and organisations, we have never gone down the intern route. Internships in Shropshire are quite a rarity, but we created a job spec for Beth as a Recruitment Resourcer. This allowed her to work through and concentrate on day to day duties, responsibilities and behaviours with job recruitment agencies.
Beth’s Success Story.
“I am currently studying BA Business Management at the University of Liverpool. However, I live in Shrewsbury outside of term time. Whilst nearing the end of my first year, I began actively searching for a summer placement. This is when Greenfield IT came across my profile.
They offered me a role, on an interim basis, as a Recruitment Resourcer specialising in the IT & Digital Sector. With no prior experience in recruitment, Greenfield IT provided me with full training. I work underneath Rob and Vicky. They answer my constant questions and have taught and helped me so much since I started. Having learnt how to screen CVs, speak to candidates on the phone, arrange interviews with candidates and deliver feedback. I have also massively increased my interactions on LinkedIn.
IT & Digital Sector.
Working in the IT Sector has helped prepare me for my study abroad in Germany on the “Digital Opportunities in Europe” course. The exposure to jobs in IT and the terminology has prepared me for the modules such as “Business Intelligence” and “Data Science and Analytics”. The opportunity to work in recruitment at Greenfield IT has also helped prepare me for modules. Including “People Management” and “Diversity Management”, ready for when I return to university in September. Working in an environment that is also based around sales has also prepared me for my “Sales and Negotiation” module too.
What is Greenfield IT Recruitment Like to Work for?
As a company to work for and alongside, Greenfield’s team are both a supportive and lovely group of people to work with and I’m so lucky that there are job recruitment agencies so near to me. They have made me feel very welcome from day one. The directors are also great to work for and very understanding when things can sometimes go wrong. You can’t fault employers who don’t get annoyed at you for accidentally completely breaking the computer less than a month into the job.
They also offer a great rate of pay, for someone my age with no prior experience of recruitment on an Internship in Shropshire. We also eat out most Fridays and you receive a bottle of champagne when you make your first deal!
I am very grateful for the opportunity that Greenfield IT has given me. I can’t wait for what’s still to come!”
