Uwe spent the last 16 years of his career in sales, with a significant chunk dedicated to leading key account teams in the industrial bakery sector. After a fulfilling journey with his latest employer, a food-flavouring organisation, where he spearheaded key accounts, he reached a point where responsibilities seemed to outweigh the rewards. The relentless pace of daily customer interactions, coupled with the ever-growing list of duties, led him to reassess his professional path. He tells more about his journey.
Caught my eye
“Ready for a change, I was connected by several recruitment agencies, all vying for my attention with opportunities in herbs and spices. Despite the variety of options, a role as a Key Account Manager in the food service in the German market caught my eye on LinkedIn. It was linked to the profile of the consultant from QTC Recruitment so I decided to reach out to him.
Unlike other recruiters
From our first conversation, I felt an immediate connection with the consultant. His approach was not only professional but also personable, making the dialogue about my expectations and the potential role at this food production and distribution organisation a true partnership. Unlike other recruiters, his focus was on understanding me as an individual, delving into the nuances of my background and aspirations. Truly the art to ask.
Swift and efficient
The recruitment process with QTC Recruitment was swift and efficient. The consultant guided me through the initial call and a video interview with him to the first interview with the Sales Director of the organisation. This was a very fun interview; I knew it all boils down to combining your expectations with those of your employer. I was invited for a second interview a week later with the owner. The consultant made sure to send me a message after each interview asking how it went.
Understanding of my needs and expectations
Throughout the journey, the consultant maintained a perfect balance of professionalism and warmth, demonstrating a keen understanding of my needs and expectations. Even during contract negotiations, he played a crucial role in facilitating communication with the HR department, ensuring that every detail was considered and discussed. He went above and beyond to make the process comfortable and transparent.
Right persons in the right roles
Now, as I embark on this new chapter, I can't help but appreciate the personalised and thoughtful approach of QTC Recruitment. It's not just about landing a job; it's about finding the right fit for both the individual and the organisation. To have an interview with QTC Recruitment’s marketing department about how I experienced their service truly shows their commitment to delivering the best service and asking for feedback. They have the right people in the right roles.
In conclusion, my experience with QTC Recruitment, and particularly with the consultant, has been nothing short of exceptional. Their dedication to understanding and addressing my unique needs has made this career transition not only seamless but genuinely exciting. I look forward to making a significant impact in my new role, and I'm grateful to QTC Recruitment for being the catalyst in this transformative journey.”Check out our vacancies
