My background in recruitment

I began my recruitment career in February 2021, however I have had prior sales experience in telecommunications and events, so coming in to Manufacturing and Engineering has been a fresh new challenge for me.

I have also worked numerous years in the Police where I was on the front-line building relationships with people in the local community and with people from all walks of life. I also spent day in day out interviewing suspects and victims alike which now allows me to thoroughly question and interview candidates for the clients I am working with in my current role. The police allowed me to work effectively under pressure and to think quick on my feet no matter what is thrown at me. These are all relevant skills which will now allow me to develop a successful career in recruitment and be the best in the business.

The key to becoming successful in recruitment is building a rapport and building trust with both my candidates and clients. This can be achieved by spending time speaking with them, understanding their needs and ultimately what their goals are.

The markets I am currently working in and recruit candidates for are within; food, automotive, heavy engineering, FMCG and others.

Testimonials

“I was really pleased and refreshed with the professional service offered by Asad during my search for a new role. Although the role I eventually accepted was found personally, Asad provided genuine, continuous support throughout the process. Many recruiters get in touch after finding a CV, briefly get an update on what you're after, and if nothing is of interest you fall off the radar. Asad, however, kept in regular contact, either with an update on some potential roles he felt were suitable, or just to let me know there was no update but I was still being considered.

 

Our initial conversation lasted half an hour, meaning Asad took the time to fully understand what I was looking for so that any opportunity discussed was genuinely worth discussing. Although I hope to not be in need of a recruiter in the near future, I would absolutely return to Asad and I highly recommend speaking to him when searching for your next role."
