Hello everyone, my name is Darcy and funnily enough I work at Darcy Associates. I would like to tell a little bit about myself and how I started as a recruiter at Darcy Associates.
how it started
After learning about the construction sector daily and dialling for hours a day I finally got my first client and job on within 2 months of me working at Darcy Associates. At the time, I knew very little about construction but was ready to work this job. The job was a local construction company that wanted a labourer permanently. I can honestly say the ‘permanent’ took me off guard I knew I had to work this role till my little fingers couldn’t dial anymore.
Within my first hour of calling and putting up my first job advert, I got over 20 applications for the role and I went through them thoroughly, overlooking each CV and calling them. That’s when I found the perfect candidate and put them forward for the role. He is even still working for the company now and doing a fantastic job.
To this day, I still work with this client and supply them labour daily. I will always look back and remember that I took a big step out of my comfort zone and ensured this role was perfectly filled for my client.
becoming a leader
most inspiring newcomer 2021
Being able to hold a good conversation and being confident on the phone has developed in long lasting, honest relations with clients and by me being a quick thinker and taking in training and information with solid commitment is what has helped my career develop so quickly. Being a recruiter has taught me so much over the last few months and I can honestly say I’m thoroughly enjoying being a part of Darcy Associates and thriving daily.
I am very proud to mention that after only 8 months I have been nominated for the Most Inspiring Newcomer 2021 at the Recruiter Investing in Talent Awards – if I can do if after 8 months – so can you!
