Oaklands Global welcomes new team members as trainee Recruitment Consultants.
We’re pleased to welcome two new members to the Oaklands Global team this month who will undertake our industry leading training academy to become Recruitment Consultants.
Sarah Kelly and James Smith will be studying hard to learn all about the specialist field of aviation recruitment. This will ensure that they are best poised to offer their expertise to begin or further your career in the industry.
The Oaklands Global training programme prepares self-motivated and dynamic people with the skills they will need for a successful career in aviation recruitment.
Sarah was attracted to Oaklands Global due to their company values of respect, ambition, excellence and integrity. She recently returned from Ibiza where she worked in hospitality management.
She said: “There are a lot of recruitment companies that are so focused on the commission and not on the importance of placing the right candidates in the right roles – that’s not what Oaklands is about. I am also really looking forward to learning a lot more about aviation and aerospace, in particular the military and defence area of recruitment – this has already really interested me so far.
“People throughout the aviation industry play crucial roles. For example, I remember missing a flight to Amsterdam once and we were very lucky to be given another flight that day and for free – those staff were really understanding and forgiving and made a huge difference to us!”
James came to Oaklands Global after working as a New Business Sales Advisor for an insurance company and as a Personal Trainer.
He said: “I am keen to work hard so that I can become a respected and professional recruitment consultant within this exciting and niche field. I want to help people to take the next step in their careers by building a rapport with key contacts, clients and candidates.
“My family love air shows and I remember going to see them when I was a child. We would camp out to see the jets flying overhead and I was always amazed at how skilled the pilots were as well as the amazing engineering behind the planes themselves.”
Oaklands Global is invested in both the careers of its staff and its candidates. By attracting fresh talent to the recruitment industry, we can ensure that our team are ready to provide exemplary service so that your career, as well as their own, can really take off.
William Finden, Managing Director, said: “We are very excited about starting our new Recruitment Training Academy in 2019. I am a huge advocate of investing in people and, just like the aviation industry, there is a huge shortage of professionals in our industry too.
“So, rather than fight over experienced recruiters, we will be developing our own – the Oaklands Global way!”
