Kevin started with the STR Group in 2018 as a Recruitment Consultant for our Built Environment brand, Stride.
“I started on October 8th, 2018 and I have nearly completed my probation period. I was brought in specifically to help with the expansion of the Architecture & Interior Design section of Stride into New York City. I have made 1 placement so far and currently have 2 more waiting to start.
Before working at STR I worked in retail, had some experience in Account Management and I am a fully qualified Engineer. Having never worked in recruitment before the initial move was daunting, however, the team and the atmosphere at STR has motivated me to smash my targets.”
It’s not all about work
Why the STR Group?
“Honestly, STR, specifically Stride, chose me. I have previous sales experience but have never done recruitment before. I was always intrigued by recruitment and decided to try my hand at applying for this job.
Within a week I had a response inviting me to interview. At the time did not know anything about the job or what area I would specialise in. Charlotte Northam was on the hunt for someone to help out with the expansion into New York and it seemed I might be the perfect person, being that I am an American myself.
It has been a fantastic run so far and I look forward to what the future holds and to being part of such an exciting expansion for the company into a new market.”
A note from Kevin
“STR provides endless open opportunities for people who really want to drive their career forward. Recruitment isn’t easy, but the rewards, incentives and achieving your career goals make up for it.”
