Genuinely, it’s a great feeling when you know you’ve really helped someone.
Not so long ago, I got a call from a former jobseeker whom I’d helped find his new role last year – Ben Briffa. At the time he was fairly new to the industry – pretty much a “raw”, but showing real potential, graduate – he’d achieved a 1st Class Honors in Business Management, as well as a industry placement in-house as a digital marketer. At the time, we were fortunate to find him what we thought was going to be the “perfect”, long term career move.
Now some time later, circumstances out of his control meant that I was contacted by Ben to try and do it again. To find that perfect role, join a great team of people in a role with a visible line of career progression, within a local commute. Not asking much was he?(!)
Ben’s such a likable guy; I knew my clients would love him if we could get them to meet him. It was now down to a case of timing – finding the right employer, with budget and a need to hire at this time.
Living in the digital hub of Brighton, we had a wide choice of employers who could be hiring someone like Ben – but we knew we wanted to put Ben’s career into a safe pair of hands. Worthing based, Fresh Egg, were expanding their Commercial team at the time and we soon secured Ben a progressive role in the Sales team. He had a clear road map of induction and training… and was being managed and mentored by a recently hired Sales Director, also called Ben! It rapidly became apparent that the Ben duo were going to get on well. Our Ben (Baby Ben) learning a lot from the more senior Ben (Big Ben) as soon as he joined the Fresh Egg team.
We’re delighted to check in on our Baby Ben (he’s not really so little!!) and hear how pleased he is with his career move in the Digital Marketing industry, now working for Award Winning, creative Agency “Fresh Egg”.
Below are some kind words our Ben had to say about working with clockworkTalent…..
“I can safely say I wouldn’t be in the position I am today without Natasha. We were first introduced back when I was a post-grad with little experience, she was unbelievably generous with her time and her expert industry knowledge which ensured that I found a role that both matched my skills, and was one that I really wanted.
Having recently found myself in the market for a new role, there was only one person I thought to contact. Just a short time after that conversation I was interviewing and subsequently found the next journey in my career! There really aren’t enough words to express how much respect and gratitude I have for Natasha, I consider her a friend and couldn’t recommend both her and the guys at clockworkTalent enough. Thank you!
Ben Briffa, Sales Executive, Fresh Egg”
