Victoria Greaves, Recruitment Officer for Autonet and Emma Alcock, HR assistant, were on hand to speak to students about the roles available within the Burslem based Insurance Broker, which has seen massive growth year upon year since it was founded in 1998.
Vacancies on offer ranged from full time roles within Sales, Audit, Credit Control, Renewals and Customer Service, alongside placement opportunities.
Victoria said she thoroughly enjoyed the event and explained that all the candidates she spoke to had made an excellent impression.
“So many candidates approached us – we didn’t have to approach anyone. We distributed over 200 packs which included information about the roles and application forms. We were the first stand that you came to when you entered the fair which made us very busy.
“Many candidates filled their applications out on the day and we have had a large volume since the event. We also encouraged candidates to go to our recruitment website and apply.”
Victoria explained that she feels it is important that Autonet’s relationship with Staffordshire University is maintained.
“Our relationship with the University was forged when we attended their Student Job’s Fair for the first time in February. It actually started though when we had a candidate from Staffordshire University approach us and ask us about IT placements.
“We want to keep developing this relationship and will be attending the Jobs Fairs in the future.”
Victoria added: “Recruitment is such an integral part of Autonet’s growth as we are expanding all the time; we are keen to attract graduates and students who are keen on placement opportunities.”
A recent edition to Autonet from Staffordshire University, Suzanne Jordan commented: “Jobs Fairs are really useful to students. It is a great opportunity for students to meet employers and furthermore, to meet employers that actually understand student working constraints and are still willing to give them an opportunity. It is brilliant to hear that Autonet are committed to being involved.”
