Celebrating Success

With November’s Employee of the month – Freya!

How does it feel to win employee of the month?

It feels really good! After months and months of hard work and build up, November turned out to be absolutely insane, my best month in recruitment yet! It’s amazing to be seen and appreciated when this year has been a tough one.  

What lessons have you learned this year?

I have learnt to trust myself. Being in a bad situation naturally feels awful (and there have been plenty of those times this year.) But I have learned that dwelling and overthinking doesn’t help and there is a lot to be said for slowing down and appreciating the fact that it will be fine – and I will find a way to improve!

“I learned not to put so much pressure on myself, and enjoy the work I am doing because that’s when the real rewards come”

Do you feel that your goals have changed as an outcome of the pandemic?

I am not great at setting goals to be honest. I wouldn’t say that I’m very goal driven! What I am though, is insanely competitive, so, I guess I have the goal to be the best at what I do!

The pandemic has taught me that it’s about balance, and before the pandemic, work had too much of a hold on my overall wellbeing, but now I am focusing on me as a whole.

What’s your biggest achievement to date?

Placing six wonderful candidates in November; my 14th month of being a 360 consultant, and all during a pandemic.

What has been your highlight at ISL so far?

Winning the fancy dress competition dressed as The Tiger King {insert ridiculous photo here}

What is on your wish list for the next 5 years at ISL?

Get to senior consultant, become top biller, get involved in training and developing others and make my millions, the end.

What are the best and worst parts of your job?

The best: complete autonomy over my desk, true recognition for good work, and the ISL family. Also having clients tell me I am the best recruiter they have worked with isn’t so bad either…

The worst: people assuming I am like other recruiters. Please, new clients just believe me I am really good at this, so just give me a chance!
