Meet the team: James Doran

OUR TEAM JUST GOT EVEN BIGGER!  We are super excited to welcome James Doran to the Netsource family. I caught up with James about his love for digestive biscuits and life before Netsource.

Hi James, thank you for taking the time to chat. Please tell us about your previous role/Background:

My previous role was somewhat different to recruitment, I was a scaffolder for over three years! When I was 18 I started off doing door to door sales before working in various bars and also festivals. This allowed me to become confident and speak to different people easily and effectively. I felt that there was not much progression left in scaffolding and wanted to get back into a sales background… and out of the cold!

What was attractive about Netsource?

Well I emailed Nick regarding a position for a trainee recruitment consultant and met with him  a couple of days later. When I met with him he made me feel comfortable straight away and we had a great chat about life as well as work history. I think that’s half the battle when finding a place you want to work at, you need to feel comfortable to be confident. I then checked online for reviews on Netsource and couldn’t find one bad word, which was interesting. Oh and the great commission scheme was very attractive

What are you currently working on/specialising in?

At the moment, with it being my second day. I started the day calling candidates that have already been spoken to in the past by previous colleagues at Netsource. My aim of these phone calls was to explain GDPR changes and also ask about their current situation. This has been very helpful as it has allowed me to become more comfortable on the phone.

What do you hope to achieve?

I am hoping to achieve being able to excel quickly in recruitment. I would like to begin to start building a successful career for myself with financial benefits full of opportunity.

How have you found your first week?

I have found my first couple of days pleasant so far. The whole office are lovely people and very supportive towards me. They are happy to help me when I need it and are constantly helping me to develop and build my skills. The environment is relaxed and it’s nice to drink coffee out of a machine in a mug as opposed to a flask that was made early hours in the morning.

 Random fact about yourself!

A random fact about myself? I can eat a whole pack of chocolate digestives with a cup of tea in less than 4 minute
