James Bowler graduated from Swansea University with a BSc in Economics and now recruits Front-End Web Developers across the UK. Here's what he has to say about his experience of tech recruitment so far... 1. Why did you decide to get into a career in recruitment? Coming from an academic background that is traditionally linked with a career in the financial sector, I was looking for an opportunity that offered similar earning potentials without the narrow confines of a role in economic analysis. I gained an appreciation from meeting key members of Understanding Recruitment of the breadth of their client base, from start-ups to established companies and the daily interaction with a diverse range of international people. I have found rewarding the insight into businesses and specifically the importance of technology in shaping their development. 2. What’s the best thing about working at Understanding Recruitment? What has impressed me most at Understanding Recruitment is the supportive culture present within an intrinsically competitive profession and the management style that both motivates and rewards, giving us all a sense of achievement. 3. What would your advice be to a graduate looking for a career in recruitment? No day is ever the same and working in such a competitive field brings high points as well as low points. But if you are prepared to be resilient with a positive outlook then your success is both financially and motivationally rewarding, all within a workplace environment like no other.
