Who am I? - Jake O’Regan!
How has your first few weeks at Amicus Recruitment been?
I have really enjoyed my first few weeks at Amicus. It has been tough to learn the new systems and the new market, but feel with the help and support I have been provided I am certainly on the right track.
What have you been doing since you’ve started?
I have been learning as I have been going along, the best thing to do in this situation is to let you have a go. I started off by getting my head around the new system but then also getting on the phone to candidates and getting a feel for the market. As I got more comfortable I started to speak to clients and even got my first interview last week with a new client!
What’s your area of specialism and why do you feel you’ll be successful in this market?
My area of specialism is Microsoft .NET development throughout London. I recruit anyone from a junior developer all the way up to a Development Director. I feel I will be successful in this market as this is a candidate driven market with more jobs than candidates available. I believe that once I start to build trusting relationships with candidates, people will start to recognise me as a reliable recruiter within this space.
What attracted you to work for Amicus Recruitment over other agencies?
I have worked in a very corporate environment in my last role. I met with the Director Shaun Connor and was very impressed with how passionate he was with the company and how much they had planned for the next 2-5 years of growth. I loved the fact that everyone has one common goal to achieve targets and have a laugh on the way.
What are your goals in the next 12 months?
My goal over the next 12 months is to make a serious impression both at Amicus and within the .NET market. I want to pass my yearly target with flying colours and be knocking the door of becoming a Senior Consultant.
Finally, tell us an interesting fact about you!
I don’t know if you’d class it as interesting, but I played as a goalkeeper for England School Boys (U18's) team back in the day!
