A warm welcome to our newest team member, Connor McLeod.
A simple question to start! Describe yourself in three words:
Easy going – Adventurous – Honest
Why did you decide to enter the world of recruitment?
I studied psychology and sociology whilst at university. I had always had a passion for people and understanding trends, behaviours, and data. After leaving university I worked in retail which enabled me to utilise university experience whilst delivering a personable and friendly service. I always aspired to work in HR or recruitment and from the experience I gained after leaving university I knew that recruitment would allow me to continue servicing clients and candidates and for every day to be different.
What do you like about working in recruitment?
I like the challenge of recruitment. The ability to grow my career, whilst building relationships and using my knowledge, understanding of the client, market and candidate to deliver the best possible outcome.
What attracted you to Change Digital?
The people, there are various possibilities when becoming a recruiter or the type of recruitment you intend to do but I think choosing a friendly and supportive environment dampens the learning curve and will lead to a more successful career in recruitment.
What is the best part about your role?
Having a good conversation, it doesn’t necessarily need to be fruitful in terms of making a placement but that I walk away feeling like we had a mutual understanding and formed a relationship, where I am trusted and that the next time the person needs help they will pick up the phone.
If you were a superhero, what would your name be and what superpower would you have?
My superpower would be the ability to fly, ConnorAir! It would improve a last minute weekend away and smash any commute time.
What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
I am obsessed with golf at the moment, and play weekly. I am also a fair weather cyclist so when the better weather comes I will be mountain biking up north or climbing a big hill.
A cliché question to finish! What would you do if you won the lottery?
Invest in property to rent, creates a steady income and it’s an appreciating asset, and spend the rest of my time up north cycling and walking with the dog.
