Throughout the last few months, employees have been going above and beyond to support the businesses they work for. Some have been flexible to offer additional support where needed, others have learnt new skills to add additional value and several have even stepped outside of their comfort zone and have taken on new tasks and responsibilities entirely!
Our Office Manager and Eileen’s EA Sarah has done just that! Usually, Sarah would be in charge of ensuring everything in the ER office runs smoothly, supporting our busy recruitment team and of course working closely with Eileen. However, over the last few months like many other businesses everything ‘usual’ has gone out of the window and a new adaptable and hands on approach has been adopted in its place.
With the majority of Team ER having been on furlough or working from home, Sarah stepped away from her traditional day to day tasks and instead has taken on a variety of job roles, including that of a recruitment consultant. With a background of working in the recruitment industry, and a vast amount of insight into the role, Sarah took to her new responsibilities like a duck to water and has been a crucial factor in our ability to survive and thrive.
Team ER have all now returned to work and resumed their usual work duties with Sarah too returning to her position as Office Manager and EA, but this time with a new skill added to her belt and a newly cemented confidence that despite challenges, hurdles and uncertainties, she was faced with a role and well and truly smashed it – who knows we might make a consultant out of her yet!
It’s not only our internal team who want to celebrate Sarah and her incredible work, but some of our clients and candidates too who had the pleasure of working with Sarah over the last few months:
“The service we have received from ER Recruitment has been absolutely invaluable with every candidate closely matching the competencies and experience we required. The personable and professional service we received from Sarah was fantastic and it has been brilliant working alongside her on our vacancies”. – Nish, Happy Pet Products.
“Recently I was fortunate enough to be taken on as a candidate by ER Recruitment. My dedicated recruitment advisor was named Sarah. Sarah was without question, the best recruitment professional I have ever been represented by. I felt supported at every step of the way and really got the sense that she cared about the outcome for both myself and the client. Before my interview, Sarah went out of her way to make sure I felt I had everything I needed from her in terms of preparation which was so reassuring. I am happy to say I was successful in gaining my new role, and this is partly due to Sarah’s support and dedication. Thank you!” – Megan, Placed Candidate.
One of the best parts of working in recruitment is finding the perfect match for both our candidates and clients, a feeling Sarah has now experienced first-hand. From all of Team ER we want to say a huge well done Sarah, you are an asset to our team and we love having you on board.
