Alicia’s First Two Weeks at Just R

We recently welcomed Alicia into our Graduate Rotational programme here at Just R. Our programme gives recent graduates the opportunity to experience a range of roles within our team, from marketing to customer service and business administration. Giving them the opportunity to discover their area of expertise and most importantly, what they enjoy doing!

Alicia’s first area to get stuck into is the Candidate Consultancy team, and she has written some words on her first two weeks with us.

Even though I have only just started my journey at Just R, it has already exceeded all of my expectations! Straight away, I have been made to feel incredibly welcome by the team. I’ve already got a taste of my first rotational area within the Candidate Consultancy team and taken part in a number of talks and meetings to understand Just R’s values, visions and more. It’s clear that every employee is valued here and care is taken throughout the onboarding programme to ensure you are eased in, without being overwhelmed.

Having the opportunity to get stuck into my Candidate Consultancy role early on has been really beneficial. It has been exciting to speak to candidates from up and down the country, who are passionate and wish to join the NHS at such a crucial time. This role within the team is so important in delivering valuable candidates to the NHS.

Even after two weeks, it’s clear how important and special the work we do for a variety of Organisations is. Working alongside Organisations and curating long-term strategies, to help them capture the interest of compassionate and committed candidates, ultimately saves them valuable time and money. It also enables them to create workplaces where their staff can do the best they can.

It’s really rewarding to know that you are working alongside like-minded individuals, towards a common goal that really makes a difference. Just R is filled with talented people and each member of the team has an important role to play. As a whole we offer a myriad of specialist services, which are devised and developed by competent and creative individuals. For example, the Design Team creates eye-catching employer branding which is used on career websites and social media campaigns; the Digital Team expertly utilises social media; and the Candidate Consultancy Team endeavours to create a more engaging and streamlined application process. 

It has also been great coming into the Just R team with other new starters. Recently, Amy has joined as a Project Manager; Sam has started his role as a Junior Videographer; and Zoe has been appointed as the Web Designer. 

 

Joining Just R on the Graduate Rotational Programme offers me the chance to find a place within the team that I can really thrive. As part of this role, I am delighted to be working alongside Isobel and her team as a Candidate Consultant. Everyone within my team is a brilliant role model. Additionally, I am looking forward to seizing all the available opportunities, so that I can evolve and develop my role at Just R.

Alongside the important work, I have participated in the wider life and ethos of Just R. This has involved getting creative at book club, enjoying some relaxing yoga, celebrating a birthday with cake, eating delicious Thai food and sampling hot chocolates, whilst getting to know each member of the team individually. Interestingly, I have also attended a B-Corp webinar which emphasised Just R’s ambition to continuously strive for improvement. I find it really inspiring that I am part of a team that aspires to make a positive difference by working collaboratively with Organisations. 

It is refreshing to have become part of a team that celebrates its successes and truly values its employees. Everyone within the team continually goes above and beyond and strives to be the best that they can be. It will be great to see how Just R continues to evolve and develop over time, as there will be lots of exciting opportunities to come.
