How long have you worked at Spencer Clarke Group?
I have worked at Spencer Clarke Group for a couple of weeks and so far, I am really enjoying it here!
What does your role entail?
I work on the Compliance Team and at the moment, it is my job to assist with helping candidates to be compliant before they start work.
What do you love most about what you do?
I love that I get to speak to loads of different people and that everyone gets on really well with each other in the office. We can have a laugh which makes it exciting to come in to work! Every day is different which means work is never boring.
What motivates you at work?
I am motivated by wanting to provide a good service for our candidates. We also have a monthly target to hit and I like the fact that this gives us a challenge - it motivates me to want to hit our target!
How would you describe working at Spencer Clarke Group?

Tell us about your career path so far
I was at Blackpool Sixth Form for 2 years and completed 3 A Levels in Maths, Business and Economics. Whilst studying, I had a part time job working as a waitress where I was able to develop my soft skills.
After Sixth Form, all of my friends decided to go to University but I declined the offers I received as I knew I wanted to start my career early.
Although it may have been a risky decision, I think Spencer Clarke Group is the perfect company to help me succeed in my career.
How would your colleagues describe you?
My colleagues would describe me as bubbly, witty and kind!
Where are we most likely to find you outside of work?
Outside of work you are most likely to find me in the pub with my friends and boyfriend.
I also love to go to Manchester because there is a good atmosphere for shopping!
Tell us something we’d never guess about you!
I used to do a lot of swimming and I was even trained by an Olympic gold medalist!
What’s next for you at Spencer Clarke Group?
I am going to focus on working towards hitting my monthly targets and as I progress, I would like to take on more responsibilities within the company.
I would also like to take on my own consultants to make sure that their candidates are compliant.
