Ellie Gibbons

Talent & HR Coordinator - Group

I am currently working alongside the Head of Talent at Pro-Recruitment Group; my role is the bring candidates into the business to pursue a career within sales and recruitment. My goal is to continue bringing talented individuals into the business and help Pro-Recruitment to grow and develop. I particularly enjoy working with graduates who are looking to kickstart a career within recruitment.

 

My secondary role as Executive Assistant also includes formatting CVs and documents and ensuring the smooth running of the office at all times. I am responsible for greeting candidates and clients and ensuring they receive the highest possible level of service. I believe that working here at Pro will help me to flourish as an individual and I look forward to what the future holds. 

 

Outside of work, if I’m not relaxing at home, I love going abroad and travelling to new places. In the future, I would love to visit many exotic places, such as Dubai and Barbados and most importantly experience their cuisine, as my love for food is immense.  I would certainly say I’m a foodie! 

 

My dream job would be to be a fashion brand promoter. I have a real passion for fashion and I love updating my wardrobe every now and then. Buying new clothes is my guilty pleasure, I can’t get enough!

5 Key Tips for A Successful Video Interview

Posted by Ellie Gibbons

It is 2019 and times are changing. With technology, social media and gadgets taking over the planet, companies are now thinking of tech-savvy ways to interview their candidates. It is becoming more common for employers to request a video CV rather than meeting face to face, after all, it saves time. Here are some useful tips to help you get ready for your video interview. 1 - Do your research – Preparation is key You want to show the company that you’ve done your research, this is your chance to really show off – make sure you have researched the company, its values and what they specialise in. Showing you have invested time into the process will help you to stand out from others. This gives you the advantage to slip in any facts and figures you may have picked up through your research and really impress your audience. If you have access to the questions, make sure you take notes and get to grips, but overall just make sure you read and follow the instructions carefully. 2 - Choose your location wisely I would highly suggest you plan in advance where you are going to do the video interview. Chose a quiet location, where you are unlikely to be disturbed. Make sure your surroundings are clean and tidy. The background needs to be simple, so the employer can focus on you and only you. (Keep adults, children, and pets away – basically, just lock yourself away!) 3 - Get Technical Ensure that you have a reliable device that you can complete the video interview on. Make sure that the camera quality is clear, and the sound quality is up to scratch. On the day of the video interview, make sure your device is fully charged and connected to the internet to avoid any technological glitches. If your internet at home is untrustworthy, try going to a local library or a friend’s house. 4 - Dress to impress Research the company culture beforehand, this will give you a good idea of what is acceptable to wear and what is not. To be safe, dress as though you are meeting with the director of the company. If you wouldn’t wear it to a real-life interview, then it’s probably not right for a video interview either. Although you are in the comfort of your own home you still want to make a good first impression. Use the theme of ‘business attire’ to opt for a safe option. According to recent research by Monster.co.uk the top things which make or break an interviewer’s first impression - this doesn't differ for a video interview! A candidate’s timekeeping (96% managers agree this is influential) Level of a candidates interview preparation (93% agree) Ability to hold eye contact (82% agree) Personal appearance (73% agree) 5 - Let your personality shine through Always be yourself. No one wants to watch a robotic interview. Personality will be the first feature that attracts the employer to you, so go with the flow and show them what you're made of! You're not in the room, so there will be a slight lack of body language communication, so when listening, remember to nod and smile to show that you are engaged. And remember, if this opportunity doesn’t work out there is always next time. Try your best as it is the best you can do!

Top Tips for Achieving a Healthy Work-Life Balance

Posted by Ellie Gibbons

Maintaining a good work-life balance can be difficult, but there are ways you can make sure that pressures of the UK’s work culture don’t negatively affect your life outside of work. Creating a good balance between time allocated for work and leisure is important to our overall wellbeing and happiness, yet research has shown that almost one-third of UK employees feel they don’t have a good work-life balance. The recent sophistication in personal technology has blurred boundaries between the office and home life, and this combined with the expectation in some workplaces to remain “switched on” makes it more difficult to “switch off” from work mode and have a separate life outside. However, there are various ways to achieve a positive work-life balance - we’ve listed some helpful tips in this short read below! 4 Tell-Tale Signs Of An Unhealthy Work-Life Balance Regularly working long days and feeling unhappy about the time you spend at work A study by the Mental Health Foundation found that as weekly hours increased, so did the unhappiness of employees, with 27% of respondents reporting feeling depressed, 34% feeling anxious, and 58% feeling irritable. Neglecting aspects of your life outside of work The same study also found that nearly two-thirds of respondents experienced a negative effect on their personal life as a direct result of work, including physical and mental health problems, poor relationships and poor home life. Regularly taking your work home with you If you find yourself checking work emails regularly at home, or working on the weekends this could be a sign of a poor work-life balance - research even found that 44% of employees did some form of work while on their annual leave. Constantly feeling physically or emotionally drained A noticeable increase in both physical and emotional fatigue and in your intake of caffeine, alcohol or nicotine could indicate being overworked and unable to concentrate properly at work or relax in your spare time. 4 Things You Could Do To Improve Your Work-Life Balance There are no set guidelines to follow when achieving a healthy work-life balance, but we can offer you advice on what to consider - it’s up to you to prioritise and work out what’s best for you! Take personal responsibility for your work commitments Switch off and leave your work behind when you leave the office, and avoid doing too much overtime. Also, try to be vocal where possible to your employers and speak up if your work expectations are beyond achievable - if you make them aware of any problems you can work together towards a solution. Take advantage of any benefits offered to you at work You should try to take advantage of any flexible working benefits available to you and take proper breaks throughout the day. A Glassdoor survey found that the average UK employee only uses 77% of their annual leave a year. Make sure you use up all your holiday and take the opportunity to unwind and recharge! Make time outside of work for relationships and leisure Put time aside for your friends and family outside of work, and don’t neglect your interests and hobbies - include them in your weekly routine. Do what you can to look after your own wellbeing Whether this means relaxing after work or trying new activities, don’t be afraid to be selfish in your own time, and exercise regularly! Research conducted by the NHS has shown that exercise reduces stress and the risk of mental ill-health, therefore making the time you do spend at work more enjoyable. Here at Pro, we believe a healthy work-life balance is key and we offer everyone in the Pro family flexible working arrangements as well as countless benefits, while encouraging everyone to pursue a good work-life balance. As a result of getting the environment and the culture right at Pro, the by-product is happy employees and company-wide success.
