Meet the recruiters: Roberto Ciuffini, Recruitment Consultant at Unitemps
Unitemps' recruiters are here to help you find the opportunity you have been looking for, matching your skills and experience to exciting opportunities. Roberto discusses his role and how he can help you.
What is your background/experience?
I have previously worked in professional football for 6 years having graduated from Kingston University. Working within a highly competitive and results driven environment has given me experience of dealing in an ever changing environment and I am able to adapt quickly to situations that may arise. I also consider my personal skills an area of strength as having to work within a team means you have to communicate with others around you to achieve goals which link well with speaking to potential clients.
What does your role entail?
My role entails contacting and speaking with potential clients and giving them the information they need to make their own decisions. We are trying to provide them with a different solution to other recruitment agencies as we are so different and I genuinely believe this. The other side of the role is meeting candidates and discussing what they want from the roles on offer. This could be career progression or just some extra work to earn some money to help them through University.
Do you have a specialist area?
I am currently trying to build my experience in different sectors and I am focused on meeting candidates to understand what they are looking for as I believe each candidate is unique.
What are your tips for people thinking about temping?
Tailor your application for the job role. You have lots of strengths so if a role asks for a certain skill, give us evidence of when you may have done this! Use the Job specification as a checklist and tailor that application. Cover letters that are generic are not good. Finally, enjoy your time temping!
What have you enjoyed the most about working at Unitemps?
Meeting people is the best part of the job! That can be a candidate looking for work, and hearing about their personal experiences, or a client who is enthusiastic and passionate about the company that they are working for.
