STORY
Steph Thomson

How do you overcome the challenges that come with your role?

By keeping resilient, constantly learning about my industry and consistently keeping in contact key with leaders in the industry.

Why did you choose Expand? What’s different about expand?

100% the culture and people won me over. As soon as I walked through the door for my interview, I knew it was the place for me. I wanted to work in an environment where everyone is treated like an adult. Which is demonstrated through their flexible working and unlimited holiday. Which allows you to have a work life balance, whilst having a successful career in recruitment.

Everyone just clicks and bounces off each other and everyone is incredibly supportive of one another.

How do you utilise your flexible working hours?

For me, I use it by going to the gym or to my spinning classes. It also allows me to see family and have flexibility around appointments that are hard to fit in outside of working hours.

How has working at Expand affected you as an individual?

Expand has made me grow personally and in a work capacity. I feel incredibly valued and love working in a company that is rewarding and develops you, whilst being fun!

Do you have a favourite workplace tradition?

My favourite workplace tradition is our quarterly clubs. We always do a fun event, then drinks and food at some swanky place. These days really bring everyone together and allows us to celebrate all of our successes!

How do you know you’ve done a good job?

When you know you’ve really made an impact in a client or candidates’ life. It’s also amazing when you get a thank you for your efforts and have built up strong long-term relationships with your clients and candidates.

What three words would you use to describe Expand?

Forward thinking, motivational and supportive.

Favourite thing about working in Brighton?

100% when it’s a sunny day being able to sit on the beach and have lunch. What more could you want!
