Cherry Swayne – Head of Sales

Cherry Swayne – Head of Sales

“I joined DP Connect because I wanted to work for a niche, specialist agency and I was impressed by the credentials of both the business and Senior Management. I was also impressed by the length of service so many of the Consultants have, it is somewhere I can stay for a long time and really build a career” I can honestly say DP Connect have provided me with the greatest level of support both on a personal and a professional level throughout my pregnancy and maternity leave." Throughout my maternity leave I felt completely in touch with the business, with regular personal messages from the Directors to wish me luck, hear how everything was going and to request pictures of the baby!! I was also kept up to date of any important changes in the business so that I wouldn’t return feeling disconnected. Towards the end of my maternity leave I was met with a completely open minded, flexible and, above all, supportive approach to my return to work. I have been given the perfect mix of flexible working hours, an exciting new project in a different business area, and plenty of opportunity to progress and exercise my ambition. The fact that I am now a working mother has had no impact on conversations about my future potential with the company. This was so important, as it made my return to work something I was looking forward to, and excited about. I have been made to feel so welcome since returning to the business. In fact, in some ways I feel like I have never been away. The Directors regularly make sure I am getting all the support I need and it has also been made clear to me that I will always have their support in being a mum first. I genuinely couldn’t be more thankful that DP Connect have made every effort to ensure I had no stress and no worries throughout my pregnancy and my maternity leave. I also have every confidence that they will make balancing my career and motherhood a much easier experience!"

“I have worked for DP Connect for the last 9 years. The support I have received has been second to none. It has a family feel and everyone is treated equally. DP Connect has given me the opportunity to progress within Recruitment from a Delivery role to a Team Leader to Head of Delivery. As Head of Delivery I have complete ownership of delivery across all of our offices. With the experience I have gained at DP Connect I am now in a position to assist in making detailed assessments of each client opportunity, guaranteeing client satisfaction in sourcing the best talent in a demanding market. I also decide on what candidate acquisition tools we use across the business. I get to regularly travel to our other offices to help with sourcing strategies and knowledge sharing with new starters. I think DP Connect have a really strong management team, fun environment to work in and offer on-going support to the staff. I have really enjoyed the last 9 years and extremely looking forward to the next chapter.”

Katie Williams - Permanent Recruitment Consultant

"I joined the DP Connect Bromley office early September 2017 from a Headhunters in Leeds and I have felt supported throughout my career change and my move. My interview process was extremely professional, I dealt with an internal recruiter at the company who initially interviewed me, followed by three senior leaders and the CEO prior to me starting. Each interview felt personal, and I was offered to meet with the team to get a real ‘feel’ for the company. Since starting at DP the staff have been friendly, supportive and very easy to get along with. We have a fantastic support network with two internal trainers who regularly work with all the consultants to help achieve their goals. DP Connect has a fun atmosphere where we regularly get rewarded for doing well. We have a Perkbox app which gives us discount to a variety of days out and restaurants, and our management team regularly create monthly incentives to reward us when we perform better. Our office has a lively buzz to it but everyone works hard and is professional. All our consultants have a certain level of autonomy and are not micro managed which is refreshing! Within my first 6 weeks of starting I placed a C-Suite level sales professional into the Fintech market and I had the full support of a delivery team, managers and finance team to help the process run smooth. I would recommend DP Connect to Recruiters looking for a rewarding company to work for, and I hope to stay with the company for a long and fruitful career.”

"I have worked in recruitment for the last 7 years and have been with DP Connect for the last 2 years based in our Cambridge office. Since I joined everyone has been very friendly and makes you feel welcome from the get go. You are empowered to make your own decisions and whilst you never have anyone standing over your shoulder, there is always someone available to help when you need it. Everyone wants you to do well and succeed; and will provide you with all the foundations that you need. There is regular collaboration between the offices, and people are quick to share knowledge and experience. DP Connect has a very fun environment, were we like to enjoy being at work. There are regular competitions and incentives to liven things up, and you can also get involved in regular team walks, lunchtime runs and meals out. If you have a keen attitude and are willing to work hard and listen to the years of advice around you, then DP Connect is the place to be. As an aside, they also throw an amazing Xmas party!"

Since joining DP Connect a few months ago, I have been consistently impressed with the support given as well as with the rewards that came along with hard work and results. I have been given an excellent blend of support and independence in my role, having the freedom of approaching the work with my own style and at the same time receiving constructive feedback from the senior management team. This complemented the in-depth training I received and the constant support from colleagues and managers, and resulted in two successful first months. The success did not go unnoticed and I was rewarded for my hard work with both recognition within my office and across the company as well as financially. Additionally, since I was very open about my passion for the video games industry, I have received outstanding support to engage with some prospective clients in this industry and grow the market. DP Connect went beyond that and offered me the opportunity to attend an industry event which they also sponsored and where I had the chance to both engage with potential clients as well as with candidates and graduates that are looking to get involved with the industry. I was able to make important connections within the industry which have led to a collaboration with a few video games studios and am now looking to expand that network. I am still learning every day in this role and have gained valuable knowledge and insight in the industry. With the promise from DP Connect that the sky is the limit, I am heading to work motivated each day, hungry to achieve more than the day before.

My time in the DP Connect Academy has been extremely effective and efficient in terms of the learning curve starting basically from scratch. Coming from an almost recruitment-like background, the way that DP Connect have taught me is even better than what I have experience before – the balance between both theory and practical measures was perfect and has helped me become the professional I am today.

The level of training provided to us has been exceptional and I am astonished by the amount I have been able to learn and practice in just 10 weeks. Matt and the rest of the team have been extremely supportive and guided us every step of the way, because of this I feel confident and ready to start my career in recruitment. If you are looking to kickstart your career in recruitment I would most definitely recommend joining the academy at DP Connect.

The academy has been a great experience all round and a great way to start my career within DP Connect. I have been guided through all aspects of recruitment and all the training has been very hands on and practical which is great for when your getting ready to be a fully-fledged recruitment consultant. I would recommend the Academy to anyone who wants a career in recruitment- full stop. Also having a group of 3 other people all at the same level is another bonus as well as everyone in the business being so attentive and nice.
