"I did not see this coming. I was Okay where I was as a customer service Rep, but I knew I wanted to be more than Okay. I applied to join the Recruiter Academy with some uncertainty as I had no experience at all in recruitment, but Emma Simms in the Talent Acquisition team explained what the Academy was about to me once again and that gave me the confidence I needed. The rest they say is history.

The training opened my eyes to the recruitment world and taught me everything I know. I still make use of it all today as a recruiter and coupled with the many transferrable skill I got from my previous role. The support I got from the managers, team leads, the academy director and even my colleagues have been so great and positively contributed immensely to the recruiter that I am today. Now I am not just Okay in my job, I am doing great knowing I’m helping people land their dream roles."

"It's a fulfilling job, knowing that you’re changing peoples’ lives for a short or long period of time – and giving them a ray of hope for the future. I’m really grateful to Resource Solutions and Leila for supporting me and helping me to achieve all that I have in the last four months,. The learning curve continues day on day, but I’ve gained so much valuable experience through the programme and am appreciative of the chance it gave me to start afresh after being made redundant from my career because of Covid 19."

"The Resource Solutions Recruiter Academy is a short training time that packs a lot of punch. The training curriculum is relevant to anyone who would like to make a career change into recruiting, whether you have any professional experience or not. Additionally, it moves at a pace where less experienced individuals can learn and grow without more experienced individuals getting bored. The curriculum includes theory, which is necessary, but it still offers practical work to put the theory into practice.

While no training program can prepare someone for every situation, what I learned definitely allowed me to join a team and be a productive member of the team. I’m very appreciative of what I learned. In fact, my experience in sourcing and recruiting has allowed me to see the practical use of the concepts I learned. I highly recommend this program to anyone who would like to make a career change into recruiting. You won’t regret it."

"Starting a new career at Resource Solutions has been so refreshing and a welcomed new chapter in my career journey. The road to recruitment wasn’t something I foresaw nor was it a field I have previously looked into, but this step came because I was in the right place at the right time. I saw the potential in this amazing and unique opportunity and decided to take the step into the world of recruitment, and I am glad I did.

When interviewing it was very clear to myself how different Resource solutions was. They are people focused and look at the individual and not just your CV. They believe in keeping an open mind to source the best possible talent through understanding what a person has to offer, the skills and experience they already have, and seeing how this person can fit into the world of recruiting.

In recruitment I have the chance to use the skills and knowledge I have acquired throughout my career and utilise them in a new and exciting way. Being able to source potential talent and watching as people’s career aspirations become a reality is a really rewarding experience, and knowing you are a part of that journey is really heartening.

I have a great opportunity to grow and learn from the best. The Academy has given me the tools and knowledge to start my career at with a strong foundation that I know can only gain momentum with time and continued efforts."

"The training we’ve received during the course has also been top-notch. We’ve been set up to handle worst-case scenarios and get over the discomfort of tough conversations. I have every intention of making this my last job and staying with Resource Solutions until I retire."

"I was never expecting that I will join the recruitment world... During my interview with Leila, she convinced me to join Resource Solutions and I LOVE IT! Training is phenomenal, managers are amazing and colleagues are super helpful. My financial and customer service background helped me a lot with talking to the candidates. This job is nothing else than helping people earn more money and be happier with what they are doing."

"Changing career path can be daunting, I had heard good things about recruitment from friends in the industry, but I didn’t know where to start. When I was looking for roles in recruitment, the RS Academy was the only one with extensive training, with each week clearly mapped out on their brochure, so I decided to take the plunge. It was the best decision I’ve ever made! The training with Leila was thorough and intense, and everything she taught us I now use as a graduated academy member. Even now outside of the academy, Leila is still supporting us every step of the way, alongside the direct sourcing team who have welcomed us and continued the support. The possibilities with recruitment are endless and the RS Academy will give you all the tools you need to become a top-performing recruiter. I cannot thank Leila enough for everything she has done for us, she always goes above and beyond!"

"I worked as a prison officer for over six years, and although I enjoyed it – I had been considering a career change for some time already. I’d never had a traditional 9 to 5 job or been able to take many weekends off before, and as a father to two young girls, I was after a better work-life balance. Dropping my children off at school had never been possible while working long, unsociable hours at the prison. Violence was only getting worse too, so when I came across the Recruitment Academy – I was quickly on board with the opportunity.

A lot of people wouldn’t even consider my CV when I applied for other roles, so the openness to people of all backgrounds was one of the hugely appealing aspects of the programme. Resource Solutions saw past the stigma attached to working in a prison and wanted to give people from all walks of life a chance to explore a new professional avenue.

What surprised me even more was just how many transferrable skills I has already acquired from my previous job. As a prison officer, I was often required to select a few of my colleagues to build a team that had the capacity to deal with crisis situations. Identifying potential, skills and desirable traits in people is what I do every day now too – the difference being that I can now spend more time with my family."
