“I get the opportunity and sense of achievement working with a number of prestigious global companies in the world based here in Switzerland”
Brighton born and raised and huge football fan Connor Bradley tells about his journey in the Recruiting industry, his previous experience in Financial services and the most rewarding aspect of working as a Recruiter in Switzerland.
So Connor, what industry did you work in prior to Recruiting?
Before I joined The Stamford Group, and indeed the recruitment Industry my background was in Finance and I worked in a number of roles with American Express, particularly in Sales & Account Management related roles and Credit/Risk functions. During these experiences I found that I had a flair for building relationships and making an impact within developing new business and keeping loyal relationships.
This is what led me to Recruitment, where everyday I get to make direct impacts and changes for the positive in people’s lives and to help my clients organisations grow with the highest quality staffing. In my role at Stamford as a Recruiter, I am able to bring my financial knowledge and expertise that I have learnt in practice working for a huge global brand at American Express, and now I get the opportunity and sense of achievement working with not just with one global banking and financial services organisations, but a number of the prestigious global companies in the world based here in Switzerland.
This is simple: the values that we have. We believe in passion, innovation, transparency and excellence all of which I hold true to be values in my personal life as well as professional. This is what sets Stamford apart from our competition, our culture, and this enables us to continue our journey to be the agency of choice.
We are now part of the Allegis Group, the biggest private staffing company globally, who also hold our values. I am excited to be part of this and to have this backing behind us to enable us to continually grow and be the best.
How do you remember your first months at Stamford?
My first months have been nothing but positive, and I am proud to have delivered excellence to a number of our most important clients in the banking industry. The most rewarding aspect so far has been changing a candidates’ lives for the better – there are not many professions which enables this impact directly in somebody’s life and being able to do this brings me immense satisfaction and joy.
This is why we do the job we do, and not only am I able to directly influence this, The Stamford Group has certainly had an influence and impact in my own personal and professional quality of life. I am excited for the future – both personally and professionally!
