WE ASKED A NUMBER OF OUR APPRENTICES TO DO A QUICK REVIEW OF MONTASH IN A 15 MINUTE INTERVIEW. HERE IS WHAT SOME OF OUR APPRENTICES HAD TO SAY ABOUT MONTASH.
Name: Sadiye Booker
Job Title: Researcher - Contracts Delivery
Time at Montash: 13 months
How long have you been at Montash?
I have been at Montash for over 12 months, I joined last year in June.
If you were to sum up Montash in just one sentence, how would you sum it up?
If you work hard you will definitely reap the rewards, as Montash makes having a career in recruitment fun, as it gives back a lot through incentives, promotions, holidays, lunch clubs and a lot more.
What is your experience to date has been like at Montash?
When I first joined everyone was very welcoming and supportive. I was new to recruitment and didn't know much about the industry at the time. Everyone helped me settle in from the back office team to my mentor and senior management.
I had a lot to learn and through the academy a lot of my concerns and fears that I had as an Apprentice were addressed about being a successful recruiter. The Academy really helped me gain confidence and I was raring to go and speak to candidates and get on with my job. Montash really looked after me and I recommend any Apprentice looking to start a career in recruitment to join Montash. It’s a fun, hardworking and rewarding place to work in.
What are your views on recruitment in general?
Before I joined Montash, I didn’t really know much about recruitment. I didn’t even know it existed. A career in recruitment is challenging as you do feel like you’re on a rollercoaster, one minute you’re on a high and the next you’re on a low. But my mentor is constantly making sure that I’m happy and guides me through the difficult paths that recruitment has to offer. If you want to work for a company where you get promoted for your hard work the recruitment is your career, I get bored really quickly, but recruitment has always got new opportunities, challenges and rewards. There is always something new to do.
If you’re an apprentice you have a lot of opportunities in recruitment, there is a lot to learn, but with time and experience you very quickly become a pro at it.
If you had to describe Montash to a friend, what would your review be?
Montash is an environment for those who want to succeed and do well in their careers. You have to work hard and focus on your work. Montash is a great company to work for, as soon as I joined I was already talking to candidates and searching CV’s. The support I got from my mentor and the Academy trainer was really helpful and helped me get where I am today. Everyone has fun whilst working, it’s a fun place to work in. The career progression at Montash is never ending.
What advice can you give to other apprentices joining Montash?
I’d say work hard and get results; Montash rewards hard work and offers opportunities to those want to succeed in recruitment. You can achieve so much if you are willing to work hard. The Montash academy helps apprentices to be successful in recruitment, but the hard work, right attitude and hunger to achieve comes from you.
