      Why did you join PageGroup?
      I was drawn to PageGroup because of its strong corporate values. It is unique and distinctive and that was what differentiated PageGroup from other organisations. Being a sportsman, I could relate to PageGroup’s corporate values, which include working as a team, showing determination and passion, taking pride and making it fun.
      Upon meeting with the managers and directors at PageGroup, it was clear that they lived those values and I was convinced that PageGroup would be the right firm to join.

      How you have grown with PageGroup?
      In the first three months, I was placed into an intensive training program which was a mix of classroom and on-the-job training. My manager spared no effort to ensure that I got up to speed with the day-to-day requirements of the job and he helped to equip me with the skills and confidence required.

      Fast forward 18 months and I have been promoted to Senior Consultant (Human Resources) and I have grown tremendously as an individual and consultant. I am now well equipped to handle the numerous challenges of the job and to share my experiences with my team.

      What is the most rewarding part of your job?
      Nothing brings me more satisfaction and fulfillment than helping a candidate find the job of their dreams or helping a client find a great candidate with a very specialised skill set. It is the very reason I do what I do. I am also very intrigued by how different businesses function across different industries, and being at the forefront, speaking to the business leaders of these organisations inspires me to be a better consultant and person.

      What is the usual day-to-day schedule for you at PageGroup?
      At PageGroup, our value proposition is our 360 degree approach to recruitment. We manage the full lifecycle of recruitment, from client and candidate management, down to offer management. We spend half of our time growing our network and presence in the market by meeting with new and existing clients to understand their corporate developments and partner them in their recruitment needs. We spend the other half of our time meeting and speaking to candidates; sharing suitable opportunities with them as well as facilitate their end-to-end interview process, down to the offer stage. There is never a dull moment at PageGroup, being amongst some of the most dynamic, energetic and fun-loving people and facing unique challenges everyday.

      What is the usual day-to-day schedule for you at PageGroup?
      My usual day entails conversations with people internally, meeting clients, thinking of new campaigns and events our team can do. A bit of everything!

      Richa Sharma

      Why did you join PageGroup?
      I joined PageGroup because I wanted to be in a firm that rewards you for hard work, supports you in becoming a leader and gives you clarity on your career path.

      How you have grown with PageGroup?
      I started in 2011 as a consultant within Page Personnel Secretarial and Office Support, specialising in the financial services and legal space. I was soon promoted to Senior Consultant, moving into the commerce market as well. Today I manage the entire Secretarial and Office Support team, with two Senior Consultants and two Consultants.  

      What is the most rewarding part of your job?
      The fact that no day is the same. I am extremely thankful that I am in a job that teaches me something new everyday.

      What is the usual day-to-day schedule for you at PageGroup?
      My usual day entails conversations with people internally, meeting clients, thinking of new campaigns and events our team can do. A bit of everything!

      Why did you join PageGroup?
      I was placed by PageGroup into my second job and was thoroughly impressed with their professionalism and quality of service. Thus, when I decided to do a career switch into recruitment, PageGroup was my first choice.

      How you have grown with PageGroup?
      I’m proud and happy to have developed really quickly in my career with PageGroup, taking on new assignments and more responsibilities periodically. Leading teams and driving businesses comes naturally to me and I was tasked to lead the Michael Page Finance and currently the Human Resources team.

      What is the most rewarding part of your job?
      The most rewarding part of my job is people development. Being able to see new consultants develop into experienced recruiters and managers is the highlight of this job for me.

      What is the usual day-to-day schedule for you at PageGroup?
      My usual day-to-day schedule can be classified into three parts: Management, Business and Recruitment.

      Management – one-on-one reviews with my key people on their businesses and processes.
      Business – Looking at key client relationships and new market opportunities.
      Recruitment – Working on senior roles in the market.

      What is the best thing about working for PageGroup?
      Working with like-minded and ambitious individuals who spur and motivate you progressively.

      What attracted you to a career in recruitment?
      I wanted to do a sales-related role and recruitment was appealing as I was intrigued by the possibility and challenges of interacting with people from both the client and candidate perspective.

      What advice would you give to graduates who are looking to join the recruitment industry?
      Stay focused, plan your career in yearly milestones and take every opportunity to improve your strengths and weaknesses.

International transfers

View the profiles of some of our international transfers to find out why our global presence makes us a great company to work for.
David Slater UK - Canada

I joined Michael Page Sales in 2006 as a consultant. Interestingly I didn't join (as many do) with the intentions of working internationally... it's funny how things pan out when the right opportunity presents itself.

Last year I had an internal discussion about the growth potential and the obstacles to overcome in our Canadian business. I'm now director of Michael Page Sales, Marketing and Technology in Toronto. It's still early days with plenty to accomplish but I already feel that I've learned so much. I'm excited about what lies ahead and it's clear that it was the 'right time', despite me not knowing it only a few months ago! 

Alena Salakhova Russia - USA

One of the reasons I joined PageGroup in 2009 was the opportunity to gain international experience. After five years I knew I could stay or challenge myself somewhere new.

I am still a very young director and people in Russia consider my relocation to San Francisco Bay Area (the most developed area for new business development and start ups and an incredible place to live) as amazing. 

The one thing I would say if you want to progress your career internationally – don’t be afraid to chase for it and make your dreams come true.

Denis Daniliuc France - Mexico

I joined in France as a consultant and progressed to manager level before applying for an international move and I was given the opportunity to move to New York. Heading back to Europe, I joined our office in Brussels to take over various disciplines in Belgium. After a few years, good results and a baby, I moved to Mexico City to grow our operations in this dynamic country.

I enjoy the nice weather and amazing weekend trips this beautiful country offers. If you want to develop professionally and enjoy a strong international network, PageGroup is definitely the place to be!

Aaron Bambrick Australia - Canada

I started at PageGroup on the graduate programme in 2008 and before transferring to Houston I recruited in the mining, oil and gas sectors in Brisbane. Transferring internationally can do a lot for your career but it’s also a big challenge. 

Having worked in both the Australian and US oil and gas markets I have now transferred to Calgary to help open the office here and establish a local presence for Michael Page in Western Canada. Calgary is a beautiful city only an hour from the Rocky Mountains and the market is similar to that of Australia in a lot of aspects. Calgary presents a significant opportunity for Michael Page and gives us an integrated North American oil and gas team. 

Jamie Hart UK - Sweden

I joined Michael Page in 2000 in London and in 2014 it felt the right time to explore international opportunities.

Learning something new about yourself and other people, learning new ways of recruiting in different markets has always been the main driver behind my attachment to PageGroup. Moving to Sweden has taken this to a whole new level. 

The trust placed in you when you move abroad is inspiring, realising how much there is to learn gives you extra energy and living in a different environment positively challenges you professionally and personally. Now I won’t look back when I am old and wonder ‘if only’...

Marco Cremonese Italy - Germany

I started in Page Personnel Milan in 2009 as a trainee and became a senior consultant in the Retail division in 2010. In 2012 I took over the Digital & New Media specialisation and in October 2013 I became a manager.

I was happy in Milan but I wanted to experience meeting new people and working in a new division. I also wanted to develop personally.

I now work for Michael Page Finance & Accounting in Munich – of course it is a hard challenge and a new start, but it is a wonderful experience. I´m happy about the opportunity that PageGroup gave me.

 

Giovanni Presti Italy - Turkey

I was one of the top performers in Europe and won a trip to Istanbul. I didn’t know then but a year later the company, in response to my desire for international experience, was going to propose Turkey as my next chance to develop.

I am growing a new team in Istanbul, a wonderful city in a country where the culture is different from Italy but where there is a lot of energy in people and life. With PageGroup there are opportunities to learn about new cultures and live the experience. 

Katherine Karlsen UK - South Africa

South Africa is very different from the UK, there are certain aspects of employment policy I had to overcome, but I find this makes it more exciting and it gave me a challenge. Johannesburg is known as the 'City of Gold' – as the gateway to Africa it provides you with further exposure to an emerging market. It really is an exciting place to recruit.

There is a great atmosphere in the office. The teams are motivated, passionate and diverse. There is a true sense of PageGroup culture here, with the added twist of South Africa.

Tamara Boonstra Netherlands - Indonesia

I was interested in the idea of international opportunities within the Group so started applying for a transfer. News came that the business was being launched in Jakarta, so I applied, got the job and moved here in January.

The best bit about moving is that it has taken me completely out of my comfort zone. I’m learning about a new culture and how to adapt in all sorts of situations – personally and professionally. Moving is definitely worthwhile. It has opened my mind and my eyes and given me space to explore and develop.

Simone Turola Italy - China

China is very different to Europe and the initial impact can be strong. It is important to have an open mind and see things with interest, curiosity and a sense of humour. Everyday can be a surprise, from the food to a new word that helps you in daily life to a new place to visit or a new person to meet.

I don’t know how many other companies can offer this level and variety of international opportunities; it’s a chance to build your future success. My only regret is that I should have done this earlier!
