Trainee Consultant – Construction
1) What made you choose Kingston Barnes as an employer?
I chose Kingston Barnes because of the opportunity presented to me. Not only was I given the chance to work directly with the Managing Director, but also to be provided the training and support necessary to progress and grow within my career to get to where I want to be. Kingston Barnes is one of the fastest growing recruitment agencies in the South West, with huge scope to be a leading construction recruiter and I wanted to be a part of the team responsible for achieving that number one spot.
2) Why did you choose a career in recruitment? Where does your passion/drive come from?
If I’m being honest, I fell into recruitment. After leaving university earlier last year, I needed a job and ended up choosing a career in recruitment due to the fact I enjoyed the fast-passed environment surrounding sales. I have always thrived under pressure and thoroughly enjoy the environment of the recruitment industry. I particularly enjoy the level of ownership and accountability that recruitment brings with it, and the ethos being the harder you work the bigger the rewards.
3) What interests you about construction? Where does your passion/drive come from?
During my summer holidays, I worked as a labourer for my local construction company in Kent, this is what first got me involved in the construction industry. I worked on projects from start to finish and enjoyed the rewarding nature of the industry. What interests me the most about construction is the technically challenging aspects of construction and the collective teamwork it takes to get a project done.
4) What is your favourite construction project?
My favourite construction project is the Al Maktoum International Airport, Dubai. To date, the airport is the biggest construction project in the world. Costing £82bln to complete and being 40km in size.
5) When you are not recruiting, what do you do?
When I am not working, I enjoy going out with close friends, eating out and going on holidays with my partner, going to the gym and trying to keep healthy.
