Just Fab. Water, Wizards and Walking
Posted on 18th December 2017
You know what recruitment consultants are like? Nice, quiet people who go hill-walking of a weekend and watch Netflix in their spare time? Doesn't quite sound right, does it? Welcome to our new Glasgow recruit, Fabio Marini!
Name: Fabio Marini
Job title: Recruitment Consultant
What’s the funniest thing you’ve seen in recruitment?
A candidate who claimed he was a wizard in his spare time and under ‘Interest and hobbies’ on his CV he mentioned his fascination with dragons.
What other jobs have you done apart from being a recruiter?
Waiter, IT Network Engineer
What made you join Be-IT?
The strong brand and reputation they have in the industry. The chance to work under Gareth and Nikola and further progress my career was also something I couldn’t turn down.
What it your biggest disaster at work (anywhere)?
Dropping six bottles of water over a table soaking everyone after the tray carrying the bottles slipped.
What’s the biggest challenge in IT recruitment just now?
I would have to say candidate attraction and management. There is definitely a skills shortage within the UK and this means that it is a candidate driven market. Strong candidates who are actively looking for a new role will have at least two, sometimes three other interviews happening at the same tie.
Favourite (non work) website and why?
Netflix. I’m a big TV and Movie buff and have been known to binge watch an entire TV show in a few days.
Describe an ideal weekend (in no more than three sentences)?
It would start off with a long lie on Saturday (and another on Sunday), taking the dogs out with my girlfriend for a long walk followed by watching the football and then a few beers with friends.
