Two graduate from England Associates’ debut Training Academy
England Associates is proud to be celebrating the graduation of Jordan Shepherd & Declan White, two talented trainee recruitment consultants from its debut recruitment Training Academy.
Investing in future talent for the industry, England Associates actively recruits young people with limited recruitment experience to join its structured training programme in order to gain an accelerated understanding of the industry.
With recruits coming from varied backgrounds the programme aims to deliver targeted and relevant training to help young people develop their skills in addition to promoting meritocracy and allowing high flying individuals to enjoy rapid career progression and excellent financial rewards.
Written and delivered by the company’s internal team, who have over 100 years combined experience within recruitment, the Training Academy covers an extensive syllabus including the basics of speaking to job seekers, to business development, negotiation and ultimately delivering an excellent service to both candidates and clients.
Upon graduation of Shepherd and White, divisional manager, David Sleeman, said, “Seeing these two bright individuals really take on board all of the training and coaching we have provided over the last 12 weeks and grow into some excellent recruiters makes me immensely proud. They have now joined their full-time roles within the business and are celebrating their first of many placements to come”.
White previously worked within hospitality management but was looking to take the next step in his career and was keen to start reaping the financial rewards on offer in recruitment. Upon graduation, White has now joined the company’s blue collar trades and labour team starting up a new mechanical & electrical desk.
Shepherd joined England Associates following a move from an insurance claims handling background, meaning she possessed a professional telephone manner and strong experience in customer service. Building on Shepherd’s natural talent, she has now joined the company’s architecture & interior design recruitment team helping her growing network of interior designers find new opportunities across London and the South England.
