Bryonie Madine – December 2018
Back in 2016, I met with Inside Asia Tours in Bristol to speak with their HR manager to discuss the introduction of an apprentice within their team.
I was instantly drawn to this company as I’ve a passion for travel and just couldn’t wait to meet them. Having researched their values I felt this would be a great opportunity for an apprentice to begin their career.
Inside Asia has an excellent working culture and a creative team in place so it was key that I continued with this when looking for a new team member. It wasn’t long after this that they got themselves their very first HR apprentice.
Fast forward 12 months and I’ve now developed my career and have embedded myself into H2R. My role focuses on HR recruitment, working with organisations on succession planning and building strong new and existing relationships.
H2R & Inside Asia now are now fully-fledged business “friends” as I like to call it and it’s amazing to see.
As the relationship has grown over time and we have a sound understanding of the needs of the business, we were asked to support with an additional team member.
We sat down and discussed the team dynamics, what support they would provide and designed the job specification. I was so excited to be part of this and couldn’t wait to get started on it.
After a gruelling 2 stage interview with a presentation, the HR manager was impressed with the candidates we sent over and it was a tough decision but a very rewarding one to hear she would like to make an offer. Our successful candidate was over the moon.
She is now into her 2nd month and is loving it. She’s been warmly welcomed, and has got to know the teams well and already excited about new projects on the horizon.
This is an excellent example of how H2R Selection can work closely with businesses, regardless of size. At H2R we love to build long lasting relationships and understand the businesses growth plans so we can fully support.
