What do you like the most about working at Montash?
There are several things I like about working at Montash, firstly there is the environment, which is definitely a key factor, there is a social element to it, you can have a laugh whilst working, it’s not just heads down and go home. Secondly it’s about the platform, the platform is there for us to develop as consultants, there are various new opportunities for us to move into and grow along with the business. The way the business is set up definitely makes our life easier as recruiters. We have a back office team that manages contract queries and the terms of the business side, this gives us as consultants more time to find candidates and place candidates.
What were you doing before joining Montash?
I was working in Ayia Napa for 6 months then joined Montash. Prior to that, I was at another recruitment company doing a very similar role.
What is the highlight of your career?
Doing your first deal is definitely a highlight and being promoted at Montash from Associate Consultant to a Consultant.
What do you think about the Leadership team at Montash?
The leadership team at Montash are very approachable, you have the CEO Andy Larholt, who sits on the floor amongst all the staff, you can go over to his desk anytime and ask him anything, he will guide you and make sure you are on track for achievement, and this is the same with the Associate Directors.
What are your thoughts about career progression?
My career map is laid in front of me, both myself and my line manager knows where I want to be and how I am going to get there. Now that I’m a consultant, my next aim is to become a mentor and manage a team. All the processes are put in place for me to achieve this in the set timescales.
What do you think about career development?
We have regular catch ups about where I am and what I need to do to move forward and achieve the end goal.
What has been your biggest achievement?
Within a week of leaving school I had a job, this then gave me my independence. Making that move from school to a career was a big achievement for me.
Describe the culture at Montash
The culture at Montash is a good environment, it’s a loud office. It’s a place where you can work hard and have fun at the same time.
What have you enjoyed most about the culture?
The most I have enjoyed about the culture at Montash is, making friends. You can chat to people outside of work. The incentives, the parties, the holidays and the nights out are all part of the Montash culture.
What advice would you give Consultants joining Montash?
Go in with an open mind and take every bit of advice, everyone has their own way of working. So listen to other managers and your line manager, take it all on board and then adapt your own style of working.
