Meet the team: Introducing our 2020 new starters

2019 was a big year for AKA Recruitment, not only did we get acquired and join the YCG Group, but the team has continued to grow with not one, but two new starters, Amy & Beth!

Meet Amy Davidson our Recruitment Consultant

Background/ Experience: Recruitment is quite a new career for me although I have recruited for my own company before. 

Describe what your job entails on a day to day basis: I speak to new businesses and re-engage with accounts we already have, I also speak to candidates to find the right job for them. 

What attracted you to come work at AKA? When I came for the interview I was made to feel at ease and I saw the opportunities here that are rare to find in other workplaces. 

If you could sum up AKA in 1 word, what would it be? Awesome

Meet Beth Beaumont our Automotive Account Manager

Background/Experience: I have 7 years experience working for a world wide food manufacturer, in a servicing role, 3 of those years were as a Manager. I then moved onto a career with TrustFord which was for 12 months as their National Recruitment Support Advisor.

Describe what your job entails on a day to day basis: Identifying clients needs, building relationships, sourcing candidates to hopefully fill vacancies & finding new business leads

What attracted you to come work at AKA? I was always contemplating going into recruitment externally, when I saw Tom’s post on LinkedIn about the automotive account manager role, i thought it would be a perfect fit 

If you could sum up AKA in 1 word, what would it be? Welcoming

Autumnal Deliberations and Developments

What an amazing few months it has been! From expansion, to development, to placements and candidate registrations we have been soaring in all these areas. We have something very special happening in December which has never been done at aka Recruitment and we don’t want you to miss out! Therefore keep your eyes peeled!

After some major investment from Your Consultancy Group we have been able to expand into bigger offices on the outskirts of Wakefield. With this aka Recruitment are now part of an established, modern and developing recruitment group who are progressing forward at a vast pace. This is from systems to processes and departments, although we have moved into a bigger office you can still come in and register with us as you know, we enjoy speaking and meeting with our registered candidates. 

Our team has also developed with the introduction of our Apprentice Cameron Levitt. With a keen interest in the Motor trade, having done mechanical work previously, Cameron is now starting with aka Recruitment and has already started building his client relationships by bringing on several new clients within the first 2 months of working with us. His improvement over the past few weeks has been astounding! Keep up the good work Cam!

Are you currently looking for a new opportunity either in the Motor or Commercial sectors? We have some fantastic opportunities throughout the Yorkshire region! More recently we have been able to branch across into Lancashire (Don’t worry we are still Yorkshire Born and Bred) as Your Consultancy Group establish a Head office base there. We have also expanded to clients in the Lincolnshire county, as we continue to grow nationally can you afford to miss out on our vacancies? 

As always we would like to thank our clients for their support and continued recommendations to other businesses, as well as Your Consultancy Group for helping us progress and move forward with the business. Our amazing Recruitment Consultants, Ryan and Cameron, are here to help with your vacancy or job hunt. Our sister company YourSales are also here to help with the experienced Business Director Tom and Senior Recruitment Consultant Nicole at your fingertips to offer advice and help you in your job search.

February Thoughts

Well where to begin….

We hope you’ve had a fantastic start to the New Year and that it has already started to be the best year you’ve had!

Things have been manic here at aka recruitment with vacancies continually coming in and superb candidates constantly registering with us it is sure to the best year we have had!

We have had a slight reshuffle and introduced 2 new members to the team. Ryan joined us at the beginning of January as our new recruitment consultant and has brought 10 years of customer service with him. Having not done recruitment in the past he really is soaking everything up like a sponge. Jo joined the team at the beginning of February and as our candidate coordinator is taking the time to meet and speak with our candidates to get to know them a little and find out what they are looking for or how we can help. #freshteam #freshstart

Whilst Jo has been speaking to our candidates, Lauren and Ryan have been out meeting and greeting our clients, focusing on their business needs and what they look for when hiring a new team member. We know that every business and team are different and by getting to know our clients we can add that touch of class by matching up the perfect candidate.

 

The future at aka looks fantastic, we hope to diverse into different key areas of business, to meet new and exciting companies and clients, this will then lead to superb new job opportunities so keep your eyes peeled!!
