I love bringing a team together to remind them what they're part of.Gill – the First Name in enabling potential
FIRST NAMES RECRUITMENT
Because we’re a business built on talented individuals, we place a particular emphasis on the way we find new ones. Before you become a First Name, you have to consistently demonstrate that you have both the professional qualifications we need and the personal qualities we demand. Our interview process provides ample opportunity for us all to learn about each other – and for you to show us that you’re the straight-talking, collaborative relationship-builder we need on our team.
We’re committed to finding the best people and keeping them at the top of their game. Our First Names benefit from comprehensive and specifically tailored training programmes focused on both professional accreditation and management development, soft skills, coaching and technical training. When you join us, you'll also get a “buddy”, an established First Name who acts as cultural mentor, agony aunt and occasional drink buyer or sandwich sharer during the crucial twelve months it takes to earn First Name status.
Each year, we seek out the brightest new graduates and welcome them to our team. Whilst we don’t expect a world of knowledge and expertise from our graduates – we’ll give you plenty of opportunity for training – we do expect a passion and thirst for learning and a colourful range of personal interests. It’s your personality – and particularly your thoughts, perspectives, experiences and individuality – that define the way you will influence our business for years to come. So look out for this year’s graduate drive; we’ll be looking for you.
LIFE AS A FIRST NAME
We’re passionate about our First Names – their professional and personal development, their individual prosperity, their career aspirations, their life outside the business and their contribution to the communities in which they live. We create working environments for them which support and encourage open, honest discussion and collaboration: our First Names act like a family and truly pull together for one another. We’re proud of the way we support our First Names – and of the genuine satisfaction they show in a job well done.
