Meet Jack – EDIT Recruitment’s latest team member
We would like to welcome Jack Wilson to the team at EDIT Recruitment as a Recruitment Consultant specialising in IT & Technical roles.
2021 is all about expansion here at EDIT Recruitment. We kickstarted the year by expanding the team and welcoming Jack Wilson as a Recruitment Consultant based in our Hull office.
Jack is originally from Hull and after graduating from the University of Hull he moved across to Manchester to pursue a career in recruitment. He gained valuable experience at a national recruitment consultancy working within their IT & Technical Recruitment team. Since then he has been back in Hull gaining experience as a 360 consultant before joining EDIT Recruitment where he will be focusing on growing our clients with the best IT & Technical talent.
Hi, Jack! Please tell us a little about what you like to get up to, outside of the office?
“Hello! I just wanted to introduce myself after joining EDIT Recruitment, for anyone who knows me personally, you know I find it difficult to write about myself… But, here it goes.
Pre COVID-19 I spent my time enjoying pints in the pub, spending time with my friends and family and watching sports. These are pastimes that have since been replaced with binging Netflix and rambling around on country walks with no idea of where I am, or where I am heading.“
Please tell us a little about your career so far!
I started my career in recruitment after graduating and gaining a Geography degree in 2019. I have since decided I never want to have another conversation about Mountains or Oxbow lakes again, however, since I started my career I have taken a keen interest and primarily focussed in the IT industry. I have really taken to the fast pace of the industry and learning as much as I can about it and about where it is heading.
The ambition and progression of the team here at EDIT has blown me away and in such testing times and with the infancy of the business it’s a very exciting time to be joining the company. I’m thrilled to be joining the business and helping clients and candidates fulfil their recruitment needs.”
What does your role entail, is there anything that you really love about working at EDIT Recruitment?
“My main role at EDIT is ensuring we find the top talent within the digital market and ensuring that both candidates and clients I work with are happy and informed throughout the recruitment process. There is no greater feeling in recruitment than finding the perfect role for a candidate and hearing they’re still loving the role months down the line.”
Jack also mentioned that is other favourite thing about EDIT, is Shaune… !
What advice would you offer to someone looking to apply for a role with EDIT?
“Do it! We’re in the process of building a great team here at EDIT, we have some massive clients and the opportunity for the company’s growth is limitless.”
You’re tasked with getting lunch for the team at EDIT, what are you bringing us?
“I’d have to go for a crowd pleaser and go DOPE burger, a proper Hull classic.”
And, for the playlist?
“Leon’s 80’s ravers stuff hits the spot on a Friday afternoon!”
Lastly, after a busy day at work, how do you de-stress?
“I’ve just got a new puppy, Stanley, so a lot of my ‘de-stress’ time is spent stressing about that little sh*t”
I am sure you will all join us in giving Jack a warm welcome to the business! If you are looking for any assistance as either a candidate or a business with your IT & Technical recruitment requirements, please feel free to drop him an email at email@example.com.
