What do you like most about working at Impact?
I can honestly say the best thing about working at Impact is the people you work with. The team are all so supportive and friendly! I can always guarantee that our get togethers are very eventful. We really are one big Impact family!
What are the biggest challenges companies in your area are facing at the moment?
I believe the biggest challenge companies are currently facing is actually the process of returning to work. Understandably, many companies closed during the lockdown which has resulted in a downturn in work orders due to the closure. Therefore, this has added extreme pressure for these companies as they begin the recovery process, to swiftly implement a return to work structure for their staff, while maintaining and achieving a safe working environment. We are helping many companies with remote onboarding and the return to work of furloughed staff.
What are the biggest challenges candidates face now?
The biggest challenge candidates are currently facing is that there is an increased number of people looking for work due to redundancies. Therefore, the volume of applications on job adverts has increased. My advice would be to show as much interest as possible and be consistent in your approach. Good communication and enthusiasm will help you stand out from other applicants. The hard work you put into your job search will pay off!
What has been the highlight of your time at Impact so far?
My highlight of working at Impact is that I have formed great relationships with my work colleagues and my clients. I have met some amazing people during the last 19 months!
What do you like to do outside of work?
Outside of work I love to spend time with my family and friends. I also love a holiday and enjoy visiting new places!
Tea or coffee?
Definitely coffee… 2 sugars and milky.
