We’re delighted to announce that Alex Jones from our Cardiff has been promoted to Senior Consultant. Alex, who joined BRC in 2014 as a Trainee, has been looking back over his time with the company:
“I was a professional cricketer for Glamorgan before joining BRC. I had friends who worked in recruitment, and I liked the sound of it, but I was concerned that nobody would give me a chance as I had no sales experience. When I interviewed with BRC however, they reassured me that they could teach me how to recruit as long as I had the transferable skills required, a strong work ethic, and a positive attitude.
I was really pleased to be offered a position as a Trainee Consultant in the Social Housing team. I had lots of training and attention in my first few months including class room sessions covering sales skills, customer service, and sector knowledge. I also had a lot of on the job training where I worked alongside senior team members.
It was a very steep learning curve for the first year but I always felt supported by my manager and the team in Cardiff. I was promoted to Consultant within a few months and I haven’t looked back.
I am delighted to have been promoted to Senior Consultant and I am looking forward to the next stage in my career development.”
