#FITLife: The day in the life of Andy Young

What does a normal day look like at Fruition IT for a Recruitment Consultant?

Andy Young - Recruitment Consultant, Fruition IT

Hi, I'm Andy and I'm a 360 Recruitment Consultant at Fruition IT! I specialise in London based Software professionals.

Take a read below to find out more about me and my role at Fruition IT!

What I do…

Build relationships, actively seek out the best candidates and great companies to hire them, consult with both clients and candidates on improving recruitment processes and the market.

I became a recruiter…

To get access to a booming industry & enjoy the incentives.

How I became a recruiter…

I did a bit of freelance recruitment through university for someone that I knew and knew I wanted to do it properly when I graduated. I joined Fruition and have been promoted a couple of times since then.

I have been with Fruition IT for…

21 months (1 year, 9 months if we’re not describing it like a new-born)

I chose to join Fruition IT because…

I interviewed with loads of agencies in Leeds but went with Fruition because of the people I interviewed with and all of the training on offer.

My typical day at Fruition…

I get to the office for 8, have a strong coffee and a chat with everyone. Most days are different, but usually a mix of discussing upcoming roles and projects with Clients and sourcing candidates.

I love working at Fruition because…

Fruition is great because of the people, it’s fun to come to work every day. It’s different for a few reasons, but a big one is that we invest in loads of training that sets you up for success.  

I am most proud of…

Placing a few senior appointments (CTO/ Head of Engineering types) and being the exclusive recruitment partner for companies that I really believe in.

The future of tech recruitment involves…

I think a lot of work will be automated in both recruitment and tech. Data driven companies will succeed in both arenas.

The future of Fruition IT involves…

Continuing to partner with Fruition Consulting on massive programmes of work, skiing later this year (hopefully) & lots of greenfield projects.

One random fact about me…

I can juggle & I’m a great cook (at least I think so)
