“Hays are a specialist recruitment agency that concentrates on supporting people to find employment. I was based within Hays Education, which solely concentrates on the recruitment of teachers, and I took up the role of Resourcer.”

“My job was to help assist the consultants whose role was to find candidates positions of employment. My role widely varied.  A main part of my duties was to help generate business by attracting candidates. There were two main ways in which I achieved this. One was through making calls from the Hays database and identifying who was still in need of employment, and the other was through marketing with advertisements. Another task I regularly did was to create CV’s. This is a skill in which I had to practise and perfect as it is an important part of recruitment. With a good CV you are maximising the candidate’s chances of employment, as this is the way to portray their talents and make them appear as the most suitable for the job to employers.”

Why I loved it “I got to meet a wide variety of people and talk to them on a daily basis.”

My best experiences “At Hays has been when I got to talk to candidates while doing a registration, it is the pert of the job where you got to use a variety of skills from interviewing to communication skills.”

What I learned “Throughout my time with Hays I was encouraged to keep a notebook of which has become a diary of all the different tasks I managed to accomplish. This varied from learning to operating a database called One Touch to properly dealing with a candidate registration.”
