Back to Team

Aaron Scott

Associate Consultant - Finance

I’ve joined Pro on the AC programme in July 2018. I’m currently assisting with all desks at the moment before I find out which team I will be joining.  

 I have come from an insurance broking background which I believe will help me with a smooth transition in recruitment and life at Pro. My interpersonal skills and my experience in being able to understand and meet the client’s needs will hopefully lead to a successful time at Pro. 

In my spare time, I spend most of the time playing football, cricket and golf (unfortunately I’m not any good at any of them). Also, I'm a huge West Ham fan, I go to most home and away games and love spending time with friends and family. 

My best holiday would definitely be Australia, I’d highly recommend Rottness Island to anyone who is visiting Perth, it was an unbelievable experience.

Why I Chose a Career As a Finance Recruiter

Posted by Aaron Scott

"I made the right decision and I can’t wait to see what the future holds…" Having completed an intensive four-week training program designed to introduce new colleagues to the 360 processes of recruitment, Aaron Scott was given the task of choosing his sector specialism and ultimately his new team. Here are the reasons why he decided to choose a career in finance recruitment. After four insightful weeks, my rigorous training had finished and I was now a fully fledged Associate Consultant. It was time to move into a team and while for some it may have been a difficult decision, it was a no-brainer for me. I had known for some time that I had wanted to join Pro-Finance. I immediately established a great relationship with the team and they really helped me settle in and find my feet. Whilst the Finance Team played a part in my decision, I believe the role itself was the most suited to me. I based this from my experience working with the team during my training, Finance was the industry I picked up the quickest and felt most confident about. I felt comfortable with talking to candidates and clients in the finance industry at such an early stage in my recruitment career. The team has such a diverse portfolio, recruiting Finance Analysts, Financial Controllers, Accounts Assistants through to Audit Seniors. I’m now specialising in placing Auditors and Accountants into a range of Accountancy practices, from the Big 4 to specialist boutiques. Currently, I'm working with a variety of candidates from Trainee level to Partners. All of this ultimately made my decision a lot easier (let’s just hope I made the right one!) Since joining the team, it’s been intense but on a completely different level. To be honest, I don’t think I would want it any other way. I’m glad I have one industry to focus all my attention on now instead of trying to split my time between Finance, Tax, Legal and HR. I’ve learned more about the world of Finance and Accountancy Practices as well as the client side of recruitment. I can’t wait to start forging my own successful client relationships in the future. The training I've had at Pro has been excellent. We’ve had continuous monthly training sessions with Jim Atkins at Enabling Change which has been very beneficial. He has taught me so much we’ve had sessions on headhunting, candidate obstacles along with how to sell solutions to clients and candidates. He is truly an excellent trainer and I wouldn’t have progressed so quickly without his training. Thanks Jim! I made the right decision and I can’t wait to see what the future holds… If you're looking to make a move into recruitment, I highly recommend you speak to Loren von Sternberg, who can offer a great insight into opportunities available at Pro-Group.

My First Two Weeks In Recruitment - Aaron Scott

Posted by Aaron Scott

Well, what a start to my recruitment career it has been! I joined Pro-Group two weeks ago and I haven’t looked back since. The assessment day during our interview process gave me a real understanding of what to expect on a day to day basis here at Pro. Since I joined It’s been hectic, intense but most of all fun all similar to what I experienced during my assessment day, I believe I’ve made the right decision to make the move from insurance and I couldn’t be happier. Over the past the couple of weeks I’ve been in and out of training learning the whole 360 cycle of recruitment, how to write adverts, source candidates and plenty more. The training at Pro has been fantastic. For someone who is such a beginner and really opened my eyes to the world of recruitment. The training has been external and internal, we’ve had Jim Atkins from Enabling Change come into the office for two days and it was fantastic. It really helped me to understand how to move forward when speaking to candidates and clients. Also, we had Lisa Jones from Barclay Jones, who hosted a great session on advert writing with us and how to make the most of the advert. I would highly recommend both trainers to anyone who is starting out in recruitment. One of the main reasons for joining Pro was the culture has a real family-orientated atmosphere and the people are great! They do really value their staff and make you feel so welcomed into the Pro family as soon as you join, which is great. I’m so excited to continue to keep learning and move forward within the company, I’m still quite open in terms of which team I will go into, I’m sure over the coming weeks this will all fall into place. If you're looking to make a move into recruitment, I highly recommend you speak to Loren von Sternberg, who can offer a great insight into opportunities available at Pro-Group.
