Commented Leighton:

After I graduated from University I worked in an admin role which wasn’t very challenging so I decided to look at other opportunities, including recruitment. I had very little idea about the world of recruitment, other than what a friend of mine had told me, but the more I learnt about the role, the more it sounded like it would be perfect for me. I am very goal driven and after university I was very ambitious and a career in recruitment matched what I wanted to achieve as it’s down to your own hard work which is then reflected in the commission that you can earn. 

I have been in recruitment for seven years now and I can honestly say that I’ve loved it. It’s such a rewarding job where you can place people into their dream role and that is such a nice feeling. It can be a roller-coaster as there can be highs and lows, however I have learnt to be more resilient over the years when things don’t go to plan. If you have good people skills and you are target driven, I would say recruitment is a fantastic career and Brewster Partners is a great place to work.
