My name is George Sanderson, and I'm a Recruitment Consultant for the (City of London) at JMC Legal Recruitment. I’ve worked in a range of jobs prior to JMC, from hospitality in Rick Stein restaurants to event sales.
I trained at drama school in London from the age of 11 and worked professionally from then until the age of 18. Acting is a passion of mine and it’s something that has massively helped in my professional life. In certain industries, particularly sales and recruitment, you need a great deal of confidence and resilience which has been instilled in me from a young age.
I came into JMC as I saw a genuine opportunity and it’s certainly lived up to its name. I felt that the role would fit my personality – I’m not afraid of working hard and enjoy spotting and seizing opportunities. I also felt that in terms of earning potential JMC is somewhere that really has no glass ceilings; you really do get out what you put in.
The training is fantastic. You genuinely are learning from the best, and you don’t feel afraid to ask questions. It’s a fun, high performance and great place to be.
I moved from a sales environment to JMC and the difference is very clear. At JMC, you genuinely feel part of a team. I work on the London desk and there isn’t anyone who is all for themselves; we all work together and get the job done. It’s a great team here.
Moving to a new role and industry, I knew it would take some time to build up a solid foundation. With the guidance of such industry professionals, I have had real success a lot sooner than I thought possible. I’m looking forward to seeing where this takes me.
