As part of our 25th anniversary celebrations, we caught up with members of the team so you could get to know them better and find out about their recruitment journey and their time at Glen Callum Associates (GCA).
How long have you been working for GCA?
I have been working for GCA for almost 13 years.
How long have you been in recruitment?
Nearly 13 years – GCA was my first recruitment job having come from the corporate world of banking.
How have you found working for GCA?
Amazing – I can hand on heart say, I love my job. Yes, it is challenging but I absolutely love it. From relationship building, to the psychology of recruitment and the business as a whole, plus the GCA team make it a blast.
How did you come to work for GCA?
GCA was recruiting for a Recruitment Administrator, which was right up my street as organisation and processes are one of my biggest strengths.
I was keen to take on a new challenge outside the world of banking that could open up other opportunities.
How has your career grown since joining GCA?
My career has grown massively since joining GCA, from Recruitment Administrator to Trainee Recruiter, to Recruiter, to becoming a Senior Recruitment Consultant, which is the position I am in now.
I have been able to achieve this through in-house training and the support of other team members and senior managers, as well as regular external training courses and refreshers.
Recruitment really is a job where you can never stop learning and developing or you will get left behind.
Is there anything else you’d like to add about your time at GCA?
The team spirit that we have with in GCA is really what makes this a fantastic place to work.
We genuinely all get along and support each other, with a little bit of healthy competition thrown in for good measure!
So, what do you do when you aren’t recruiting?
Away from Glen Callum…I am busy, busy, busy!
Most Sunday afternoons you can find me wading through the mud to cheer on my son’s football team, which is kind of a forced passion but one that I have come to love over the years!
Another passion of mine is gardening, which I have recently taken up, particularly the fruit and veg variety. This year, we have built a mini allotment at the end of our garden – I love the peace and quiet of it all and being outside in the fresh air.
When I am not at football or gardening you can find me on walks with our Miniature Schnauzer, Jack, or on days out with the family.
