Billy Hamblin

Delivery Consultant

Please provide a brief background about yourself:

I have 5 years of Recruitment experience, worked several different roles across business development, 360 and delivery in both U.K and European markets.

How would you describe your day-to-day role at Claremont?

Managing the relationships of our key accounts and reactive recruitment for their open positions across many different skillsets and disciplines.

What led you to choose a career in this field?

I’ve always been interested in I.T and felt this path would allow me to be a part of that industry whilst also making the most of my skills.

What convinced you to apply to Claremont?

I just got the feeling I was joining an established company where there was an experienced team in place, and I would be afforded a lot of autonomy to work how I wanted and have my ideas listened too. The directors are really involved and accessible which really swung it for me.

What’s the most exciting part of your role?

The fast pace and variety each day brings.

What’s the most challenging part of your role?

The complex nature of some roles and location challenges mean I have to learn quickly and constantly.

How is working at Claremont different from previous roles you’ve had?

The trust and autonomy given to me is something I really appreciate; some methods don’t work for everybody so it’s nice to have that. The collaboration between the different teams is something I’ve never seen before, everybody’s working towards a common goal and is supportive of that.

What is your greatest accomplishment since joining Claremont?

I’d say helping a major European company find a new head of department and supporting a candidate relocate from the U.S, managing the whole process individually was my personal highlight of my career.

What hobbies do you have outside of work?

Football! Either playing for my local team or watching West Ham.

If you could describe your day in three words, what would they be?

Approachable, Insightful, Inquisitive

What’s the best piece of advice you would offer to candidates?

Find yourself a recruiter you trust and maintain the relationship, you may never need their services but it can be so beneficial to have somebody with eyes and ears across the market who you can lean on for advice!
