Road to Success

At Marks Sattin we pride ourselves on supporting our people to be as successful as they can be. One way we do this is through our Road to Success initiative, which provides incentive for our new recruits who have between zero to three months experience in recruitment. The aim of this initiative is to encourage them to hit a billing target within their first two years and, in return, they receive £2,000 towards a holiday of their choice!

A career in recruitment can be extremely rewarding and is one of the few industries where you are in control of your own earnings. We provide excellent training programmes for our new and inexperienced consultants, meaning you will receive the best inhouse training to help you fast track your career and get established in your specialist market.

Denford Mukarati joined us in 2016 and is the first winner of our Road to Success initiative. Denford has consistently worked to hit targets, KPI’s and continues to drive new business. Well done Denford - read his story below.

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.
