      Why I joined PageGroup

      I joined PageGroup right after graduating from Emory University in May 2012; I had been interviewing at three different recruitment firms and it was clear to me that Michael Page was the right place to start my career in the industry.

      As a senior in college, I initially wasn’t sure what I wanted to do and I found the PageGroup job application online out of pure luck. It was the first job spec I read that actually made me excited to join the real world and I was ecstatic when a Director at PageGroup called me the next day to discuss my resume.

      I did know that I was looking for an organization that would give the necessary tools to its new hires since I did not have relevant experience from my internships. I wanted a company that would give me opportunities to progress regardless of my age and tenure. I also wanted an environment that rewarded me directly for the work that I put in. I found all of this and more at PageGroup and I am so grateful for the past four years at PageGroup.

      My PageGroup career so far

      I had a lot to learn when I first started at PageGroup considering I was a raw grad lacking experience and industry knowledge. It was a tough learning curve but I felt like I was provided with the tools to succeed and as long as I was committed to improving my skills and learning from my mistakes, I would be able to get through those difficult first few months. I remember having a moment about six months into the job where I finally felt like things were falling into place and that was so rewarding.

      I have been promoted four times since I started and I am now a Senior Manager. With every promotion I have been able to get even more exposure to the management and business strategy sides of this job which are functions I didn’t even know four years ago I would be interested in. Pursuing a career in management has provided many new challenges but has been one of the most rewarding parts of my job.

      In the last four years at PageGroup, I have been on numerous High Flyers rewards trips and have been sent to places including the Nashville, Chicago, Houston, Saratoga, the Bahamas, Rio de Janiero, Turks and Caicos, and more. I have made some of my best friends at this company. I have progressed my career and helped progress the careers of others. I have grown both personally and professionally but I am most proud to say that the best thing about reflecting on my career to date is to think about my goals and where I see myself moving forward with PageGroup.

      My responsibilities:

      As a full-cycle recruitment firm, we are responsible for managing our relationships with clients, developing new business and new relationships and managing the cycle of the jobs we are actively recruiting for through to offer stages. 

      As a Senior Manager, I still do the recruitment and business development functions that drew me to this job in the first place. Now I am additionally responsible for hiring new members, training those new starters and growing our team by hitting specific targets related to size, profitability and market share. I look forward to my progression at PageGroup and the career progression of the members of my team.

      My advice to others who want to join PageGroup

      Learn as much as you can about a career in recruitment and ask as many questions as possible in the interview process. I also encourage people to research how we differentiate ourselves from our competitors as I am confident that the PageGroup employees, the training programs, compensation structure, incentive programs and overall opportunities for career development make PageGroup a standout from its competitors. Understand that the most challenging things about this job are the most rewarding as well; I have never worked harder for the success I have achieved here and for that reason I am committed and excited to continue my career at PageGroup.

      I began my career in corporate finance in 1995 and after five successful years decided to join one of the largest financial recruitment firms in the UK, heading up their permanent banking division. After being approached by senior management, I took the opportunity to join Michael Page in 2004 and set up a practice in London, before being asked to transfer to the USA to build up our banking division. I now head up front office executive hiring within corporate and investment banking for the US.

      1. Why did you decide to take the executive route having been a manager previously 

      Having built three highly successful teams in London, Stamford and then New York, managing over 30 people, I wanted to target the aspects of the recruitment role I enjoyed the most. This was the business development, client interaction and direct revenue production.

      2. What do you enjoy most about your current role? 

      Building a successful executive business. This has directly involved developing new and varied client relationships, working with rainmakers across various industry groups and growing revenue in previously unexplored sectors.

      3. What has been your greatest challenge and how has this changed in the last 12 months? 

      Having been utilized as a top manager across various recruitment sectors, it was initially very different to focus on a personal billing role. For example, over 50% of my time had been involved with hiring, training and developing staff, as well as business strategy and expansion. However, since I’ve adjusted it’s been very satisfying to focus on business development, reigniting client relationships and winning and referring business across PageGroup.

      4. What is your range of clients like? 

      One of the biggest benefits of moving to more of an executive role has been the breadth and depth of client relationships. This has included working on MD/director roles across the US, including selling and filling a structured finance retainer in Arizona and working on roles with firms from consumer goods to bulge bracket banks.

      5. How important is teamwork here? 

      One of the keys to being a successful executive recruiter, even though you’re not directly managing large numbers of people, is to appreciate how vital the Page family is to your success. You directly cross-sell the full range of recruitment products for other Page businesses and are still fully embedded in the PageGroup team.

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 recruitment 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! 

Denis Daniliuc France - Mexico

I joined in France as a recruitment 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!

Erwan Camaret Australia - China – US

G'day! My name is Erwan and I manage the Engineering team in Chicago, IL.

In 2008, I joined Michael Page in sunny Sydney, Australia and became the top biller within two years.

However, I was young and I wanted to travel the world - Michael Page gave me the golden opportunity to live and work in China. Living in Beijiing was amazing! The food, the culture, the people...I even learned Chinese - nĭ hăo!

PageGroup genuinely rewards the best performers with fantastic opportunities oversees. Who else can say they lived and worked in Australia, China, and now the US all with one company?

I transferred to the US because I wanted to further my career and experience the world at the same time. At PageGroup, you can too.

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 recruitment consultant in the Retail division in 2010. In 2012 I took over the Digital & New Media specialization 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 humor. 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!
