TELL US ABOUT THE MAN OUTSIDE OF THE OFFICE?
Born and raised in East Yorkshire, a small town called Hessle in Hull. For as long as he can remember Ben has been a mighty Hull Tigers fan, occasionally getting the chance to watch them play down at the KC Stadium. Ben also enjoys traveling and has recently explored the Philippines, Indonesia and Thailand. If he’s not at the KC Stadium or the TS Grale office, you’ll find him enjoying a nice pint of Moretti at his local pub!
GIVE US AN INSIGHT INTO THE CAREER TO DATE?
Ben graduated from University with a degree in Sports & Exercise Therapy. During his time at University he had several part time sales roles and soon realised that this was the direction he wanted to take his career in. He enjoys being in front of people and finding a solution to their needs. Ben decided to enter the recruitment world and joined a leading FTSE250 business whereby he received well recognised training and work experience. Ben spent 12 months with the business, 3 of which were spent as an Associate Consultant before being promoted to Consultant. After a successful first year in recruitment, Ben decided it was time to further his career and joined TS Grale whereby he will play an integral part in the evolution of the business.
WHAT DOES CAREER SUCCESS LOOK LIKE FOR YOU MOVING FORWARD?
“For me, at the infancy of my recruitment career, success is becoming a well-respected name within your specialist market, which in turn will bring progression, recognition and financial rewards”. Ben goes on to state that he “appreciates this won’t happen overnight and will require hard work, dedication and commitment!” Ben would love nothing more than to be in a position to put a deposit down on his first house within 12 months of joining TS Grale.
SO WHAT DOES BEN THINK OF THE RECRUITMENT INDUSTRY?
Ben believes that the industry can have negative connotations attached to it, however if done right, the outcome for the candidate can be life changing and the partnership you make with the client can save them a lot of time, money and create a long-lasting relationship.
WHY TS GRALE?
“Having met with all 3 partners, their knowledge, vision and plans for the business inspired me to want to join. Also joining a business so early on in its journey allows me to grow with it and help shape their brand in the market at being specialists at what they do”.
