Olivia is currently going through our Steps to Success programme and has already made three placements in just six weeks at Acorn.

Here Olivia shares more about her background and how her training is going at Acorn.


What is your background and what made you decide to pursue a career in Recruitment?

I have worked in administration since I was 18. It was never really the right role for me because I needed something that would motivate me to be the best I can be. After some research, I realised that Recruitment is an exciting and thriving industry where no day is the same. I have clear targets to work towards and I’m looking forward to reaching these. 

Steps to Success - Olivia Fogden

How have you found the training, and has it helped you to progress?

The training has been incredibly smooth and straightforward. I have come so far in just a short amount of time, making 3 placements in 6 weeks. I wouldn’t have done this without ‘Steps to Success’. 

What is your position now and most importantly, do you enjoy your job?

I am currently an Associate Technology Recruiter and I’m thoroughly enjoying it. Working with Tech is a passion of mine and I enjoy discussing the roles with Software Developers.

Would you recommend ‘Steps to success’ to other people considering a job in recruitment or just a general career change?

I would definitely recommend ‘Steps to success’ to people that are starting out in recruitment because it eases you into it so quickly and calmly.
