Our Associates team at Barrington James focuses on candidate sourcing and screening for a variety of positions. The primary goal of this entry-level position is to develop yourself within recruitment, while understanding every market within the Life Science field.

As an Associate you can expect to be in a team working alongside a Sales Manager who will teach you the ins and outs of the business, recruitment and sales techniques through hands-on, on-desk and classroom training. The goal is to not stay in this role forever, with the next step being a Recruitment Consultant position.

In this new role, a Recruitment Consultant will be placed in their own specialist market to maintain existing client relations, bring on new business and build relationships with clients yet still working with new and existing candidates.

Victoria started with our Raleigh office a year ago after she graduated from North Carolina State University. Joining with a background in retail, it was her persistence and her open mind to learn, that made her an ideal Associate!

Read below about her first year in recruitment:

What have you learned in your 1st year as an Associate?

‘My first year on the Associate team has been a ride! Joining a new company is always tricky but seeing the development of the team and being a part of it has been great. It’s taught me many things, most importantly, if you want to be part of something great and succeed, you have to put in the time and effort where many wouldn’t.’

What are some of the ups and downs you’ve faced in this role?
‘There have been quite a few ups and downs, I think one of the harder things I’ve learned is even when you get your candidates to the final stage of an interview process they still might not get the job. This role has helped me manage expectations, not only at work but in life as well.’

What was your proudest moment thus far in recruitment?
‘My proudest moment was speaking with a candidate and successfully ‘flipping’ the call. She was also a Manager who was looking to hire, she talked to me about when they would be growing their teams and their recruitment process. Whilst their plans are a little way off, it’s given me the confidence to know that I’m capable of moving a conversation in that direction and take a step closer to becoming a Consultant.’

What’s your advice for someone coming into this position?
‘Don’t hesitate to pick up the phone and call people. More often than not they’ll teach you something that will help with your next call.’
