The Route to Progression


Progression opportunities are often mentioned as a main reason for interest in recruitment. We have a structured progression plan and are passionate about working with our employees to develop with the business and succeed. Just one example of the progression opportunities we have at ATA Recruitment is Adam Waite, Managing Consultant, tasked with growing our business in the Southeast.

Adam has been with the business for six years, having started as a Recruitment Specialist, it was only 9 months until he was promoted to Recruitment Consultant. During his time with the group, Adam has continuously progressed through the ranks, assuming four posts in six years. With no shortage of recruitment opportunities available, he explained how the ATA Recruitment provided options,

“I was promoted to Principal Consultant in just over a year and at that point it was perfect for me. I wanted to manage my own desk and have control; I wasn’t quite ready to take on a team and ATA Recruitment accommodated that.”

In 2021, he decided that the time was right for him to take the next step,

“I think it was the right time to become Managing Consultant because I was planning for the future, I wanted to develop myself as a person and push myself out my comfort zone, and ATA Recruitment have been very flexible over the years in making that happen.”

And progression at ATA Recruitment is really shaped by our people, we have many routes to progression, Adam’s journey to Managing Consultant is only one of the routes we have available. ATA Recruitment are committed to working with our employees to ensure they know exactly what they need to do to succeed. Adam says, “The ethos is so good at ATA Recruitment, they progress from within and that’s because they acknowledge hard work and reward you for it. Everyone is very close nit and there really is a good bunch of people here.”

Adam's ATA Recruitment journey is not over yet, “My end goal is to create a division that will look after the south and help grow the business and team. To be able to pass the recruitment skills I’ve picked up over the years and develop other people’s abilities is very rewarding. To see them grow and offer support in any way I can is why I enjoy being a Managing Consultant so much”.
