Why did you join Expand?
I joined Expand because the sense I received from everyone in the office just felt right. Zoe had first approached me and when I spoke with her, we just got on so well! She was my first impression of Expand and that hooked me.
I then spoke with the other Directors and some employees and honestly, everyone was just so welcoming and friendly it was difficult to not get excited. They put a lot of time and effort into you, do not make you feel pressured at all, they just want to do everything they can to help, and that’s before you’ve even started! I’d say it was impossible not to join Expand.
Since working with Expand, what’s been your highlight?
My highlight about Expand and my position so far is just how interesting my work is. The jobs I work on are fantastic opportunities with impressive clients, the individuals I speak to for each job just continue to increase my knowledge and I feel better at what I do every day. There is also no comparison on the flexibility Expand offers, my life is still my life and I love work because of that.
How would you describe the team?
The team at Expand are just great. There is no gossip or belittling – which you find in a lot of recruitment companies. Everyone is here to support each other, treat each other with respect and also have lots of fun. We all work remotely most of the time, but you wouldn’t be able to tell – the way everyone gets along and are friends with each other would make you think we spent each second of the day together! Lovely team.
What motivates you?
Being interested and challenged in my work massively motivates me. Feeling like I’m part of an incredible team motivates me. Working closely with a variety of individuals and clients that I otherwise wouldn’t ever come across, motivates me. Throw in work-life flexibility and a very nice amount of money – I’m constantly motivated!
What do you get up to outside of work?
I’m usually seeing friends, going on adventures with my partner or trying to convince myself to go to the gym.
