TIFFANY – AN INTERVIEW WITH
1. What do you like the most about working for Grace Personnel?
It’s very much a family feel in the office and I am very grateful to be a part of such a great team. Everybody is so hardworking and is always willing to help each other out.
2. In your opinion, what is the most important skill required for your role?
I think it is important to be warm and friendly – even if it’s before the morning coffee! I will always try my best to help with any query and try to represent Grace in the best way possible.
3. How did you get into recruitment?
After I left retail I was looking for an administration role, I signed up to Grace to start temping with them and they took me on – with no office experience! The team at Grace have been wonderful and have taught me so many things.
4. What is your pet peeve within recruitment?
As I’m the first point of contact for all calls to the office, it’s when people call in and assume you know who they are from ‘hello, it’s me’ and seem outraged when I ask for more details.
5. In your opinion what makes a good candidate?
I work closely with the temporaries team so for me it is someone who is hardworking, happy to help at last minute and reliable. On temps candidates really need to reply to emails/missed calls as soon as possible!
6. How long have you been with Grace Personnel?
Almost 1 year – time has flown by!
7. What would you be doing if you weren’t at Grace?
I may have applied to go back to University to complete a Fine Arts course.
8. What would be the most amazing adventure to go on?
I would love to go to Africa and see the wildlife in their natural environment.
9. What city would you most like to live in?
I would love to live in Amsterdam – possibly one of the most beautiful places I have ever been and everyone seems so friendly!
10. What did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to set up my own cake business – but the problem is that I will end up eating them all!
11. Who’s your favourite superhero?
I’m not sure if he is a superhero but I do love the Joker!

"We have used Grace Personnel for over 10 years. They know and understand our business and requirements. I will always put a vacancy with them first before sending it out to other agencies, as I know that they can deliver. An area of Grace that I value is the continuity of staff, unlike other agencies you have the same contact year after year which helps build a relationship and for them to understand us. Without hesitation, I recommend Grace to any employer looking to recruit or for anyone who is looking for a job as you'll always get an excellent service."
