Why do you like working at Vertical?

“The best thing about working at Vertical Recruitment is the trust I have been given. Despite my recent start, I am able to plan my own day and make my own decisions without being micro-managed. Instead, I am given regular one-to-ones with the Directors which allows for a nice family environment.”

What makes a good Recruiter?

“For me, work ethic and organisation are the two main qualities needed to be a good recruiter. You can learn telephone manners, sales and the rest but those qualities are something you must already possess.”
