1. Lucy, Trainee Recruitment Consultant at Maxxima


After leaving the University of York, Lucy found herself joining London-based Recruitment agency Maxxima, driven by the desire to succeed and really make something of herself in an environment that was as challenging as it was fun.

“I don’t think I necessarily got the job because of my grades or where I studied. I think it's more that they're looking for someone that's hard working, driven, competitive and has got the will to succeed,” she said. “Everyone here is really personable and friendly and so they were looking for someone to fit in with that,” she added.

If you’re also looking to accelerate your career within a company that operates both here in the UK and overseas, Maxxima is definitely a great place to do it. Helping to place professionals in the Health and Social Care sectors, you’ll get to have a positive impact on lives across the nation and beyond. You’ll also be changing your own prospects for the better, thanks to targets set to double your salary within the first year and rapid progression.
