To provide an insight into recruitment, some of our team share their experiences about the world of recruitment below.

Opportunity called, Hannah picked up!

” I started my career with Abacus almost 2 years ago (feels like a lot longer) coming from a temporary recruitment background and a degree in Human Resources, I knew Business Services was my calling. “And here I am today leading Business Services & growing the team”

Starting as Recruitment consultant within 6-9 months I found myself with my first promotion, I now lead Business services looking after all area’s and specialising in Senior level appointments. I have had great support in training and mentoring to help me grow my career progression in Abacus, and here’s to the next step! “

Adam Myles Manager Qualified Accountancy Recruitment

Adam’s journey, from university to recruitment …

“I started with Abacus approximately 6 years ago as a fresh-faced business management & leadership graduate; and I haven’t looked back since (just a few extra wrinkles and chins).

Starting as a trainee consultant working on junior level finance roles to now specialising within the Financial Controller/ Financial Director level space. I also manage the Accountancy & Finance team in Abacus and gained multiple qualifications and promotions along the way.”

No prior recruitment experience? No problem!

” If you’re hoping to start your career in recruitment and not sure where, I can’t recommend Abacus highly enough!

I got started with Abacus 6 months ago, and the months have flown by. Coming straight from university with no prior recruitment experience, I wasn’t sure what to expect and was quite apprehensive at the beginning. However, the team at Abacus went above and beyond to make sure I received all the training I needed and were constantly cheering me on in the background. There’s no team quite like this one!

6 months in, I’ve supported several candidates in securing their dream roles, learned from some mistakes and had a lot of fun along the way at our team events. I can genuinely say I love coming into work every day and am so excited to see what the next 6 months will hold! “

Meet Colin, our IT recruitment expert

” I’ve been working within Agency IT Recruitment since 2018. Had a short stint in an internal job which made me realise slow paced work really isn’t for me!

I joined Abacus in 2019 focusing solely on Java recruitment within the Northern Irish market and have quickly worked my way up to managing the entire IT function here, recruiting all sectors from Software Development to Data & Analytics

Successfully grew IT teams locally from scratch, from gradate developers to Site Leads & CTO’s. I’m active in all FDI discussions, helping make NI the place to be for Tech Investment. “

Andrew, one of our top performers and his journey to success

“ I began my recruitment career back in May 2017 in sunny Australia, before moving to London early 2019. Always worked within the IT Infrastructure sector focusing mainly on Cyber, Cloud and Support roles.

My partner convinced me Belfast was the place to go and I joined Abacus towards the end of the 1st lockdown in September 2020, as Senior Consultant. Building the IT Infrastructure desk up from scratch and since hired more to help me provide the growing tech demand, specifically across IT Support, Cyber and Cloud.”
