AN INTERVIEW WITH...

CHRISTINA NICHOLLS, CLIENT RELATIONSHIP EXECUTIVE

After spending a couple of post-University years in Restaurant Management, Christina joined Plus One in 2015. A graduate in Entertainment Management, Christina initially started her career as a Recruitment Associate but was then promoted into her current role of Client Relationship Executive. She is now responsible for managing key account relationships as well as sourcing new clients.

Q: Tell us about what you do at Plus One Personnel? 

CN: I am the Client Relationship Executive at Plus One Personnel. I am responsible for developing the relationships that we build with our clients, as well as bringing new clients on board.

Q: What is the most enjoyable part of your job? 

CN: Apart from the amazing group of people that I work with, I spend a lot of my time meeting with our clients, which means that I get to know a lot of talented professionals and see inside a variety of different businesses. I love that I get an insight into how different products and services come to market, It’s almost like a 'behind the scenes'.

Q: What has been your biggest success in the job so far?

CN: I came into the role with no experience in recruitment or in sales. Since then I have learned so much from my colleagues and from Stuart and Alex. My biggest success really is how much I have learned and developed over the past three-and-a-half years.

Q: If you could give one piece of advice to anyone looking to choose recruitment as a career, what would it be?

CN: Be open to what the industry can teach you and be prepared to work hard! It can be a really rewarding career choice if you are willing to learn and be adaptable.

Q: What do you think makes Plus One Personnel unique from other recruitment agencies?

CN: We are all obsessive about being the best at what we do. There isn’t one person in our team that would cut corners to make a quick fee. We celebrate each other’s successes as much as our own and are focused on hitting our goals as team.

Q: Why do you enjoy working for this company?

CN: We are involved in all the business changes and are a part of most of the decisions that happen. It is a very collaborative environment.

Q: What was your previous employment experience before joining Plus One?

CN: I joined Plus One Personnel after working in hospitality as a Restaurant and Bar Manager and Trainer. I loved the industry and the customer interaction but wanted a job that I could develop into a career.

Q: When you hang up your recruitment boots, what would you like to be remembered for?

CN: I can’t imagine that I will, but I’d like my clients and colleagues alike to remember me for adding value to their business or their work environment.

Q: The UK is the largest consumer of biscuits in the world (random fact!), so if you were a type of biscuit, what would you be?

CN: A Penguin biscuit, because anyone that knows me will tell you that I always come with a terrible joke.

“He went back four seconds”
