Denford Mukarati | Senior Consultant When did you join the company? September 2016. Tell us about your journey with the company so far? When I started at Marks Sattin I had no previous experience in finance recruitment, and I was aware there were gaps in my knowledge. I originally joined as part of the commerce and industry team focusing on temp part qualified roles. Within my first two years I was given the opportunity to move across divisions and join the financial services team focusing on the same market. Since then, I've continually improved, producing personal record quarters and gaining a deeper understanding of my market. Congratulations on winning £2K to spend on your dream holiday! Do you know where you are going to go? I think it's going to be Dubai! Why do you think you were the first consultant to win this coveted prize? The training programmes at Marks Sattin gave me the confidence in my ability to recruit, this coupled with the great network I have built within the financial services market, has ensured that I have everything I need to succeed. What is the most rewarding part of being a recruitment consultant? Taking clients out on lunches and taking candidates out to celebrate their placements. It's really great to have full control of your day, with a culture where you are encouraged to get out and not be stuck at your desk. Commission is also a big rewarding factor and motivator. What is the most challenging part about being in recruitment? Initially, it's building a temp book and keeping it consistent. This has proven to be the most challenging part of my job. Nevertheless, the financial services market is really fast paced and I'm rarely short of candidates or live jobs. It also helps that the candidate database and retained clients at Marks Sattin are fantastic. Overall, being a recruitment consultant is demanding and you have to continually put the hours in to reap the rewards. Tell us something not many people know about you? I always buy trainers one shoe size smaller. Read more 'Road to Success' stories here.

Denford Mukarati | Consultant When did you join Marks Sattin and how have you grown with us? I joined back in October 2016 and I have definitely learnt a lot over the past year. I came in with one years worth of recruitment experience however I was very much aware that there were still gaps in my knowledge. The training programme at Marks Sattin has given me more confidence in my ability to recruit and I’ve been given the opportunity to work with some fantastic well known brands. What are the biggest challenges of working the temp market? Initially building a temp book and keeping it consistent has proven to be the most challenging part of my desk. Nevertheless it’s such a fast paced market and I’m rarely short of candidates or live jobs as the candidate database and PSL agreements at MS is second to none. I do however recognise that it is very demanding so I always have to be on my A game and also be one step ahead. Do you feel like you have a healthy work life balance at Marks Sattin? Definitely! My targets are realistic which means I am able to commit to work and other commitments without any pressure. Marks Sattin promotes a flexible working scheme, so if I need to leave early or would like to go to the gym at lunch, the opportunity is there to do so which actually proves for more productivity later on in the week. Marks Sattin also promotes several social events to take part in such as football tournaments, yoga, company paid lunches and early finishes, which is a bonus!
