At the end of last year, our UK operation began its first Trainee program, and we’re very happy to report that our inaugural four trainees have now graduated to fully-fledged Recruiters!
Our first trainee program was inspired by and based off of the success enjoyed by our colleagues in Belgium, who so loved their first trainee group that they’ve now run the program three times already!
Jacob (Life Sciences Recruitment Manager), Ottilia, Becca, Scott (Head of UK Recruitment), James, Geoff (IT Recruitment Manager) and Charlie.
Our trainee recruiters joined us in November, and completed the first stage of their training in December. This training program was developed by our in-house Employee Development team, with advice and assistance from subject matter experts across our existing teams, to provide a comprehensive introduction into the world of recruitment, and consisted of a mix of classroom and practical training sessions.
For the last six months our trainees have been putting all they learned in their classroom sessions into practice as they joined the main floor, and they’ve all been a true credit to their teachers throughout the last months of their traineeship, even achieving a few deals already!
Now that our trainees have graduated, they’re being let loose as full members of their respective teams: Charlie, James and Becca have joined Geoff’s IT Recruitment team, while Ottilia joins Jacob and the Life Sciences Recruitment team.
“There are many things to remember [about our training]; it has been a very intense 6 months. I enjoyed every single day: I felt like I am part of the team from the very first day.
Working here gave me many little laughs: we always have jokes at the desk. I particularly enjoyed Christmas time here when we played in the office like kids and ate lots of cakes and sweets!” - Ottilia
“I really enjoyed the training, it was full of useful information that has helped me get to where I am now. It was a lot to take in but definitely worth the work.” - Becca
“The training course was really fun and I had a great experience, learning lots of different things from experienced Volt employees.” - Charlie
We’re very excited to be continuing this phase of growth and investment and are happy to announce that we will be reprising our trainee program with further intakes: our next course is due to start in September!
