Kent University Graduate Dele recently joined the Basingstoke family, having served the NHS, where she began her IT career as a Data Analyst.
With a degree in Business Information Technology, Dele was well-placed to support the expanding customer base in the Chineham business park, an office recently expanded from 4,600 sq ft to 6,400 sq ft, where the business has been based since 2010.
DELE ON THE RECRUITMENT PROCESS
A recruitment agency approached me with what sounded like a fantastic opportunity with a growing technology firm, it seemed too good to be true. They promised ongoing training and development and a pleasant working environment with an ‘eclectic bunch’ – it turned out to be every bit the opportunity I hoped it would be.
I initially was invited to join a telephone call with Ian Garrett, the Support Manager who was pleasant, patient and gave me an opportunity to confirm the fit for both parties, and in light of the other opportunities I was exploring, it was a refreshing conversation and insight into a great step forward in my career.
“It’s been great getting to know the product and staff. They’re an interesting bunch for sure and it’s every bit the ‘mix of characters and personalities’, I was warned about. The great atmosphere, combined with positive solution based attitudes means I’ve fitted right in and I hear they’re expanding further.”
When Dele isn’t supporting recruiters, she can often be found learning Salsa, eating Spanish foods or planning her next trip…to Spain!
