Industria Staff Insights are featuring Paul McNicholas – trainee Contract Manager for Industria in Leicester.
Paul was selected to be featured by Karolina Tkocz, who was the focus of the last Staff Insights – Paul joined the Industria Team very recently at the end of June, and is a settling in well at our head office in Leicester.
What did you do before you joined Industria?
“Before I moved to Leicester in December I was working at a car dealership and also in a managerial role in a hotel in Ireland. The main reason I moved here is because my girlfriend relocated to the UK upon completing her degree. After moving here I took a sales role for a well-known insurance company but when the vacancy became available I couldn’t let the opportunity pass. I’ve only been working here for a month now but I’m really enjoying it.”
What drew you to the recruitment sector?
“I always had a keen interest in the recruitment sector and after speaking to Shane Lundy and Michael Walker they gave me a greater insight into it, and from then on I wanted to be involved in it.”
How did you find out about working for Industria?
“I found out about Industria first of all through my club Chairman Michael Walker and then my team mates & colleagues Michael Gilbert & Shane Lundy. They informed me there was a position available. When they informed me about it I couldn’t say no. Even though I’m only here a month I’m loving every minute of it."
Why in particular did you want to work for Industria?
“I really liked the friendly atmosphere and hardworking nature of everyone in the office. Everyone helps and supports everyone, it’s like being part of one big team and you’re never left stuck in the deep end. You have so many opportunities to grow as a recruitment consultant and progress through the company.”
Where do you see yourself in the future with Industria?
“I see myself working with Industria for a long time, it’s a great company with excellent core values and opportunities to progress. Everyone that works here are extremely friendly and helpful, the training we received was excellent and working with such experienced consultants like Karolina, Iza & Jess is helping me grow stronger as a contracts manager. I really enjoy working here and couldn’t see myself working anywhere else.”
We would like to thank Paul for taking the time to tell us about himself and offering us an insight into his story as to how he became a part of the Industria Team.
