Career Progression - Alex's story
Alex joined Liquid in August 2015 straight from university, looking for an opportunity to progress. He was quickly one of our most promising junior consultants and has now been promoted to team manager.
Background: Alex joined Liquid as a fresh graduate, having earned a degree in history from the University of Leicester. He had no previous knowledge of recruitment or sales, but demonstrated the raw talent to do well at Liquid. He joined our London & South East team as a trainee consultant.
Liquid Academy: When Alex started, he was enrolled on the Liquid Academy’s ‘Foundation Programme’, which gave him all the basic skills and knowledge to begin his career in recruitment. He then went on to be actively involved in the Liquid Academy as an Approved Training Consultant and now holds masterclasses on specialist skills.
Progression: Alex proved to be an asset to the company and was the fastest consultant to get to 50 contractors in 17 months. After just 2 years at Liquid, he was promoted to team manager for our London Children’s Social Work team and successfully led them to 'Team of the Month' in his first month as manager.
Alex’s tips for success:
You need to maintain a positive mental attitude and be disciplined in your work.
