“I wanted an opportunity to help people and really make a difference, especially after the year we’ve all had, and I now have the opportunity to do this.”

 

 

 

Hello, I’m Raven and I am a Talent Analyst at Hurren & Hope.

 

I have spent most of my professional career in sales and business development working in various industries: Insurance, Telecommunications, Business Supplies. What I enjoyed the most about being in business development was the people element; building relationships, making friends, and doing that extra bit to make my customers happy.

 

I decided it was time for a change and began actively looking for a position where I could take a step back from sales and solely focus on people first and building relationships.

 

I have had no previous exposure to the world of recruitment, but Hurren & Hope has given me the opportunity to do what I love and learn the rest of it along the way. I think this is the perfect example of what we do at Hurren & Hope; it’s people first with genuine consultancy at it’s heart not sales figures.

 

As a Talent Analyst, my responsibility to you is to fully understand your drivers from a work perspective and how those drivers effect your wider life; what’s important to you in taking your next career step? What motivates you? What makes you happy? What would you change in your current position and how can we provide you with advice that is going to improve upon your current situation. We work together as a team with a holistic approach to career management to address all these aspects to reach the right outcome for you and this is how I rate my success. If you’re not 100% happy then neither am I!

 

I wanted an opportunity to help people and really make a difference, especially after the year we’ve all had, and I now have the opportunity to do this.

 

I still have much to learn about the world of work, but I am looking forward to creating a career for myself and for others.

 

If you’re looking for your next position in you tech career, or know someone who is, get in touch and see how we may be in a position to partner with you

 

Until next time,

 

Raven
