Andrew Phiri Interview
Why Recruitment and what do you like about it?
I chose recruitment because I enjoy working with people and building lasting relationships. I enjoy meeting people and getting to learn about different businesses, products and technologies through both clients and candidates.
Why Chase & Holland and tell us about your career to date with Chase & Holland?
For me, business culture was a big consideration when I was deciding on which organization to start my career in recruitment. I knew I wanted to join a business of good integrity and strong values so Chase & Holland was the best fit for me.
I spent my first 18months at Chase & Holland building a new desk in a new Supply Chain market for the business… this provided great opportunities and challenges in equal measure and thanks to the support and guidance I received during my training, my time at Chase & Holland has been a big success to date. Now setting up the Information Technology division for the business, I relish the opportunities and challenges that presents.
What do you think makes you successful?
Quite simply being ambitious and determined
If you could have a super power to help you do your job what would it be and why?
Teleportation – it would allow me to get to different locations in an instant
Do you have time to do anything other than work, if so what?
Yes – fortunately I do… Cycling. I try to get out on my bike at least once a week.
