As recruiters, we sometimes tell candidates to be careful about going back to a previous employer because the reasons for leaving in the first place might raise their ugly heads again. This couldn't be further from the truth for me; I'm back working for Network Marketing after more than a decade and I couldn't be happier. The reasons why we parted company were purely personal and I had nothing but praise and admiration for the team. I still do. I'm delighted to see that whilst the business has grown and gone from strength to strength it has retained the same feel.
I’ve come home
Since leaving I've experienced a few different careers, having worked as a Marketing Manager, Account Handler and Teacher, but my love for Network Marketing never truly left me. It was the company I benchmarked all other employers against and whilst I've been fortunate to work for some great companies, none could come close. I feel like I've come 'home' and it's a great feeling to be back in Leeds, a city which I've missed.
Network Marketing’s strong values
Network Marketing was, and still is, a company with strong values at its heart. It has always employed genuine people who really care and want to make a positive difference to clients and candidates alike. It was never about making a quick quid, thankfully, and after only a short time back I can already see that the team are still big on building long term relationships. I can see this when I look back at some of the candidates I placed all of those years ago. Many have been placed again since, with some converting to clients.
Helping marketing candidates and clients in Financial Services
I'm currently trying to track old candidates and clients to rekindle a few relationships but I'm also looking forward to making new connections. I’m delighted to be operating within the financial services industry and over the next few weeks I'll be making contact with as many clients and candidates as possible in the sector. I'll be covering roles in Yorkshire, the North East and the East Midlands. Whilst the industry has gone through a lot of changes since I left I'm confident that I can pick up where I left off - with a lot more marketing experience behind me giving me a far greater appreciation for the challenges faced by those I'm tasked with helping.
