Why I chose to further my career in recruitment at ESP?

Name: Jonathan Petch

Role: I currently head up the mid-level sales division covering all aspects of IT and Tech with base salaries ranging from £30k-£50k.

When did you join ESP? April 2019

What’s your background prior to working at ESP? I originally started my recruitment career 7 years ago within accountancy and finance before moving across to commercial and sales recruitment around 2 years ago.

What attracted to ESP as an experienced recruiter? I had worked across commercial and sales recruitment for a couple of years and I knew I really wanted to specialise further in the IT/Tech space.  I had come across ESP in the space and knew of their excellent reputation in the market and as experts in the sector.

What is your favourite thing about ESP? As an experienced consultant it is important to be trusted, not to be micromanaged and given a level of autonomy, all of which ESP provides. From day dot I was given my own remit and responsibilities, able to start building my own pipeline and strategy for the junior-mid sales division. ESP strike a good balance between offering a professional and an ambitious working atmosphere, the amazing attitude towards collaboration I’ve experienced in the office is something I’ve not come across in a recruitment company before. Alongside this, ESP has a great social culture where everyone goes for a couple drinks on a Friday to let loose after a busy week.
