A few months ago, we recruited the newest member of our resourcing team, Katie Morris. I had a chat with Katie and she had this to say about her first impressions of the office in Kent.
“When I came in for my interview, I immediately felt comfortable in the environment. I’d worked with Fuel Card Services previously so knew what to look for in potential candidates, but this was different being on the other side of the desk being interviewed. The great part about it though was being made to feel welcome by everyone. I was greeted by a sea of smiles, an energetic workplace and lots of very busy sales people all focussed on the task. I remember meeting Rob & Matt for the first time, they’re the General Manager and Assistant General Manager. They absolutely knew what they were looking for and I’m pleased to say that I fitted the bill.
Looking back over my first couple of months, the biggest highlight was recruiting my first candidate. I was really pleased that the hard work had paid off and my candidates had faith in what I was saying. I’m thrilled to be part of such a progressive, fun loving and dedicated team and I’d encourage anyone that has the will to be successful and the drive and determination to succeed in a busy sales environment to join us.”
Following our chat, I put her on the spot with some of the meet the team questions…
What date did you join FCS? – “I joined on the 24th June 2016”
What made you decide to join us? – “The job itself really appealed to me and then when I walked into the office for my interview the feeling I got and the atmosphere was brilliant. Everyone was so friendly. I’d not experienced that before”
What’s the best thing about working here? – “I love the job as I get to speak to different people every day, I like finding out about the journey people have been in and the people in the office are just so warm, friendly and fun too. So I guess for me it’s all about the people!”
Tell me something unique about yourself… “Before I started working here I read about some of the people that work here on the careers website’s meet the team section and they all have really interesting things to say, Jess has a horse that escapes, Rachel has a tattoo and Mike is a secret singer. Me, I love kickboxing! I haven’t been able to get back to the club as often as I’d like since having my son but when I get chance to go, I love it!”
