Meet the Team: Andrea Clarke

Andrea Clarke has recently joined the Ascendant Recruitment team in our Northampton office, and we caught up with her to chat about her role and what she thinks makes Ascendant Recruitment different from other recruiters.

Before joining the team at Ascendant Recruitment, Andrea worked in the Health and Fitness industry for 22 years. During that time, she had eight different roles, with her most recent being a customer service manager.

After taking voluntary redundancy from her customer service role, Andrea decided to change industries. She started working at Ascendant Recruitment just a few weeks ago, and joined the team because of the great people. "The people here are brilliant. And the fantastic way I was treated when I arrived is the thing that I feel makes Ascendant Recruitment stand out."

The most rewarding thing about Andrea's job as a recruitment administrator? "Definitely helping people. Being part of a team that helps place people in jobs - that's the rewarding part of my role. For me, it's important that I like the industry that I work in. If you want a successful career in recruitment, I think you need good attention to detail, high levels of accuracy and you definitely need to be organised! Those are the three most important traits for my role in recruitment, anyway."

So what makes Ascendant Recruitment different from other recruiters? Andrea explains, "The work/life balance here is really good. We're able to work flexible hours, which makes such a big difference and is important to many of us. The individuals I've met and the people - both who work here and who I've helped to place in jobs - are inspiring and great to work with."

Ascendant Recruitment has a clear process in place for ensuring they meet and get to know candidates. "Ascendant Recruitment has a fantastic process in that they always meet candidates before placing them in roles, which I think is important. In another experience I had with a recruiter, I felt like I was almost being 'sold' by them, and they wouldn't take no for an answer. It was an unpleasant experience. Ascendant Recruitment is the complete opposite of that."
