Want to find out more about SF Recruitment, then who better to tell you than our own people!!! Catherine Forrest works part-time from our Leicester Office and has been with us for over 2 years achieving huge success.
I am a Senior Recruitment Consultant working within the Commercial Division in our Leicester offices, covering HR, Office Support, Marketing, IT, Procurement, Supply Chain and Logistics. I look after temporary recruitment across Leicestershire, working a flexible 4-day week.
Its super busy, no two days are the same! I would say recruitment in all sectors is tough right now, but the Leicester office are a great team, and we all support each other to get through those tougher days. We also have a great balance of support for each other, flexible working hours, and fun!
I moved from another major name in recruitment where I had worked for a number of years and whilst salary and bonus schemes had a huge impact on my decision, more importantly the opportunity to work in a truly flexible environment was key. I feel very fortunate to work alongside a manager and director who have given me complete autonomy and trust to work around my family needs. When I interviewed with Rebecca Parnell, Regional Director of the Leicester office, I could see that SF are forward thinking and always looking to improve, not just for growth but because they care about the people working within the organisation and that has become ever more apparent to me over the last 12/18 months
I couldn’t pick just one thing as there are so many great things about SF Recruitment but here is my top three
Sounds cheesy but I tell them I love working for SF! That, as a company, they understand that I have a life/commitments outside of work and they never make me feel guilty for needing to do things within work hours (within reason of course!!)
Days out with the family, cocktails with friends and going away on holiday when possible.
