Our newest member of our talent acquisition team, Chloe Robinson, worked for six months’ full time in internal recruitment at a leading service company between her second and third year at university, finding jobs for a impressive amount of people in the short time that she was there. Chloe found herself taking a gamble with one of the placements she made and went against the brief completely, but persuaded her management to trust her intuition and the individual soon became the company’s biggest earner!
Having graduated in June, Chloe decided it was time for a new chapter and this is where Eurostaff begins as she takes the role of Graduate Talent Acquisition Specialist. Chloe explains in more detail why she chose to work for Eurostaff and her visions and hopes for the future.
1. Why do you enjoy working in talent acquisition?
I really enjoy meeting different people, getting to know what they value and want from their careers and finding a role which suits them and which they can excel at. I enjoy the diversity of the day and the different personalities you meet along the way.
Your vision for the future and what you would like to gain…
I’ve always wanted a career not a job, I want to add value to a company and progress through the years. It would be great to hire someone who in a few years I am hiring a team for.
2. What made you work as an internal recruitment talent acquisition specialist?
I really enjoyed my work experience last summer and wanted to continue it! Eurostaff fits my personality completely.
3. Why did you choose to work at Eurostaff?
The company values are on point, the people I met at interview I gelled with - everyone is so genuine which can be hard to find in recruitment!

I am looking forward to opening the grad market and creating a talent pipeline that in the months and years down the line creates some of the company’s most talented employees!
5. Which professional qualities do you look for when interviewing?
I look for successful communication skills, being a quick learner, adapting to versatile situations. It’s also great when people are able to react successfully to a challenging situations…
6. Any tips and advice for those looking to work in recruitment?
Go for it, just be yourself! Personality is important in an environment like recruitment, confidence and communication is key. Don’t listen to the scare stories about the industry, there are some companies which are different – like Eurostaff!
