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
