What is your role at Concept?
I have joined Concept as a Senior Recruitment Consultant and will be focusing on Permanent positions within Project and Programme Management
Tell us about your journey at Concept so far.
I started Concept on the 1st November 2021, so still very new. I am very excited to be here, already loving the welcome I have received, and I am looking forward to a long and successful future here.
Why do you love recruitment?
I love helping people and building relationships. Recruitment to me is not about putting bums on seats, it is about establishing an open and honest relationship. I am nosey and like to have a consultative approach based on the requirements of the person I am working with. I love the feeling of finding the right position for someone and also finding the right person for the position.
I took my time with my search as it was very important to find the right company for me and who shared the same values as I do. From my first call with my Manager, I knew that I would be very fortunate and happy to be working for Concept. Concept have strong values and aspirations with a great background. In my short time here, I know I made the right decision and am proud to be part of such a wonderful team.
What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
Spare time, what is that?! I have a 5 month old and he takes up my time, not that I would change it for the world. I love spending time with my family and enjoy going out and getting muddy with my 7 year old. We eat out a lot too, we do love our food! If I could, I would also love a little pamper and a good sleep.
Finally, if you were a film character who would you be?
I would maybe be compared to Unikitty….. she is friendly, loves all things pink and pretty and likes to sing (badly). She also fights for what she believes in and gets angry about something she is passionate about. Maybe a mix of Gina from Harry Potter too… sometimes quiet and shy but will kick butt when I need to.
"I have had the pleasure of having Vicky represent me for one of the Concept vacancies recently. After being in my role for 10 years I was naturally apprehensive of the change, however Vicky’s relaxed and supportive approach made the whole recruitment process easy. Building my confidence, providing the preparation I needed and always available throughout the entire interview process which led to a successful job offer. I found Vicky to go above and beyond any recruitment representative I have ever met. She is dedicated, tenacious, hard working and forever a professional, even on her day off I contacted Vicky for guidance and she was available for me. Clearly Vicky is a person who invests in her candidates and cares about what she does, I couldn’t recommend her enough"
"Your support was brilliant the whole way through the process. I was always able to confidently go into an interview having made the right preparations from your advice & guidance. I appreciate the time you took to get all the information regarding the role for me and ensuring I was able to make sure it would work for me with my goals and current skill set as well as working for Gunnebo with what they were looking for in an employee. I do not have anything to say for improvements as everything you did was great, thank you again for helping me take a step forward in my career."
"I’ve found Vicky to be a very friendly, determined and a helpful person. Vicky has gone the extra mile to make sure the recruitment process has gone smoothly and supported throughout. I can’t recommend Concept Resourcing along with Vicky Hockley enough. I wish Vicky and Concept Resourcing all the best in future success"
"I am really excited by the opportunity and looking forward to start my career journey with Gunnebo. Thank you Vicky for your role in helping me to secure this position and your never ending support with always positive and kind words. Thank you so much for finding me the perfect job! You always kept me updated during the recruitment process, your calls before my interview always helped me to boost up my confidence. Again, I am so so grateful for all your help, I wouldn’t be able to secure this role if it wasn’t for you, you have been a super hero for me :) "
