IRP: Q&A

Andrew Vaughan, team manager at Advanced Resource Managers
 

What’s your best story about transforming someone’s life? 
My best story about helping to transform someone’s life was when I helped an IT consultant from Spain find his ideal job in the UK. It involved relocating his whole family over here. I literally walked him through, side by side, the whole process, including taking him to and from the airport, supporting him during the interview process and eventually helping him find a new home for his family. 

How do you go the extra mile? 
I go the extra mile for candidates by taking a lot of mundane leg work out of the process for them. So this might be researching the company before the interview and giving them some killer questions to ask the hiring manager.

How do you set yourself up for success?  
I set myself up for success each day by getting in early, making a plan and focusing on the tasks that are going to yield the best results for the team. 

How do you ensure you continue to be a part of your candidates’ lives? 
To make sure that I’m having a lasting impact on candidates’ lives, I simply like to keep in touch with people, to follow their career throughout their whole journey, and make sure that I always take an interest in what they are doing. 

What tips do you have for other recruiters? 
My tips for other recruiters to help transform candidates’ lives would be to simply be honest, be polite and to communicate with your candidates throughout the entire recruitment process – and always do what you say you are going to do.
