After 8 years in retail Callum joined ARV Solutions in March 2019 ready to dive into a new career.
During my time in retail I learnt a lot about management and customer facing skills, but after 8 years I really wanted to get my teeth into something new, and apply my skill set to a new career.
When I first came across ARV Solutions, they immediately caught my eye. I was so intrigued by the offsite construction sector, as this wasn’t something I had come across until then. On meeting the team, I knew immediately that this was somewhere that I wanted to be. It’s such a family culture, everyone has each other’s back, I’ve always thrived in a great team.
It’s great working within such a close-knit team. I’ve really been able to use the skills I’ve learnt to date, and build on these with the support from my colleagues. It’s such an interesting sector and no two days are the same. I have thoroughly enjoyed learning about the recruitment industry as a whole and the niche sector within construction too. I’m very excited about the future here.
In my spare time I enjoy watching my local football team (although not always enjoyable…), you’ll find me down the ground most Saturdays. I’m a keen traveller too, I get myself on as many holidays and mini breaks as I can. And I love to socialise with my friends over good food and drinks!
”At no point during the process did I feel that Graham was motivated by anything other that ensuring both parties were right for each other. It felt like a joining together, rather than an employer/employee arrangement. Moving jobs can be stressful, and for me this is the first time I have not moved roles independently. I can say with complete sincerity that despite it being a long and intense process at times, this was by far the smoothest, most comfortable transition I have had in my 25-year working life.”Adrian
