Congratulations to our first UK Trainee Graduates!

Lily Dixon

At the end of last year, our UK operation began its first Trainee program, and we’re very happy to report that our inaugural four trainees have now graduated to full-fledged Recruiters! Our first trainee program was inspired by and based off of the success enjoyed by our colleagues in Belgium, who so loved their first trainee group that they’ve now run the program three times already! Now that our UK trainees have graduated, they’re being let loose as fully-fledged members of their respective teams - read on to find out more!

Fulfilling Potential as Leaders at Volt

Lily Dixon

At Volt our key philosophy is to enable people and organisations to fulfil their potential. This underpins all of the services that we provide for all of our fantastic clients and candidates, but it’s also extremely important internally. We think it’s paramount to invest in the people within Volt, to inspire them to learn, challenge, create and innovate.  Scott Siwicki, head of our UK Staffing division, recently acted as sponsor for a team of leaders from across our European staffing offices as they participated in a two-day launch event for our Situational Leadership Coaching plan.  Many different topics were covered in these initial sessions, from development of leadership styles and training on coaching teams, to feedback models and being a trusted exec. This is an ongoing programme delivered by executive coaches from Loop Learning. Our teams from Belgium, France and the UK thoroughly enjoyed the sessions.  They may have been mentally drained and perhaps a little exhausted by the end, but a lot of fun was had all round and we are already seeing the benefit and results from the individuals involved and their respective teams.    To learn about joining the  Volt team, get in touch with Jackie by sending an email to jackie.iles@volt.eu.com or giving her a call on +44 1737 236817.
