Love Is In The Air by Mary Scudamore – Client Services Manager

Time for a blog entry from the more girly side of the office…

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I’m getting lots of work in now as I’m sure I’ll be snowed under with deliveries of flowers and cards come next week. Better get Postie to re-direct my mail to the office…

I’ve been at eRecruit for nearly 3 years now, and am pretty far away from the sales side of things. As Client Services Manager, what I do on a day to day basis is all about keeping clients happy; whether that be through writing adverts, running CV searches, or just being around to answer any queries once campaigns are up and running. My favourite part of my job is talking to a happy client. Somebody who has decided to use our service, and really benefitted from what we do. Knowing that clients think we’re good at what we do, and would recommend us to other companies, really puts a smile on my face!

When writing adverts, I have to know the ins and outs of a role, and the type of person that will fit. Quite similar to my love life to be honest, I have a specification to work from and only look at candidates who really fit the bill. It can be difficult, as some may look good on paper, but looks can be deceiving!

I see a huge amount of CVs doing what I do. Some weeks we have literally thousands of them flooding into our inbox, now if only finding potential dates for the big V-day was as easy as finding candidates… Can anyone hear those violins??
