Lewis McCallum Interview
Why Recruitment and what do you like about it?
I like recruitment because every day is different and your success is totally dictated by you and you alone. You are the master of your own destiny, the writer of your own pay cheque and hard work and determination really pays off.
Why Chase & Holland and tell us about your career to date with Chase & Holland?
I’ve been with Chase & Holland 4 years’ now and started off in the Finance Division and from January 2018 I moved across into our Supply Chain & Purchasing Division for he North Midlands. When relocating to Chesterfield 4 years’ ago I researched a lot of recruitment agencies in the area and Chase & Holland’s values really stood out for me and I liked the fact that it was face to face recruiting which was different to my previous role which was all phone based.
What do you think makes you successful?
So what is an average day like for you?
My average day consists of speaking with companies and candidates in the local area, resourcing for jobs with my clients and shortlisting for them, visiting clients on site to understand their business needs and meeting candidates prepare them for interviews or even meet just to learn about their skill set and how I can take them to market.
If you could have a super power to help you do your job what would it be and why?
I would like the ability to clone myself, so that I could be in multiple places at once and get the chance to meet more clients and candidates in the area
Do you have time to do anything other than work, if so what?
I enjoy playing football and play a few times a week and I’m a massive supporter of Liverpool FC.
