We are delighted to announce Oliver Downs' recent promotion to Consultant as he continues to progress his career and fast-track his way up our 10 Steps to the Top!
Oliver has made huge strides since launching his recruitment career with Amoria Bond just over a year ago. His rapid development and performance as a new recruiter in a pandemic climate is truly impressive!
A highly motivated individual, Oliver takes a pro-active approach to learning and upskilling, taking full advantage of our award-winning training and online learning portal, the Amoria Bond Academy.
Based in our Manchester office and a valued member of the Global Renewable Energy Permanent and Executive Search Division, Oliver's growth mindset and determination have seen him receive exemplary feedback from colleagues and clients alike. He is an excellent role model of our PROFES company values and a true champion of Best Service, achieving consistently high Net Promoter Scores, and feedback like this from his clients on a regular basis: “Oliver’s performance has been really good. I can’t fault his understanding of the brief, his speed of response and the quality of CV’s he brings to the business”.
When announcing Oliver’s promotion Paul Francis, Business Manager at Amoria Bond, said:
“Oliver is a pleasure to work with; he absorbs all the training thrown at him, applies it quickly, and is not scared to fail (and learn from it!). He has shown great resilience in the face of adversity during COVID-19, applying his positive mindset to work even harder to achieve his goals.
MASSIVE WELL DONE OLLIE – I don't imagine it will be long until you hit the next marker to make Senior!'
We asked Ollie about his experience working at Amoria Bond so far:
What advice would you give to Rookie’s looking to progress within Amoria Bond?
Be open-minded to all training and absorb everything like a sponge. The training and support offered at Amoria Bond is second to none and is designed to progress your career if you put it into practice. Don’t be afraid to learn from mistakes. Be structured and disciplined with your daily planning. Most of all have fun and enjoy being part of the team.
How do you demonstrate PROFES in your work?
I am very structured with small targets that I set for myself throughout the day and week, which shows true ownership of the task, and also leads to success. We have a great team and we have lots of fun throughout the days, even when we’ve been working from home.
How will you be celebrating your promotion?
Whilst still in lockdown nothing too exciting, unfortunately, just a nice takeaway and I'll pop open a bottle of Champagne. Hopefully, I'll also be headed out on holiday as soon as it is deemed safe to.
Amoria Bond plants 100 trees every time an employee is promoted, where in the world have you chosen for your 100 promotion trees to be planted?
California, I was doing a road trip there in 2018 during all the wildfires so I saw the devastation caused.
