At Few&Far, we take promotions seriously. So seriously that, in fact, our Head of People created a whole framework around it.
Our job is simple: to guide and support our team, so they progress faster.
That’s why we base promotions on achievable targets, personal development and behaviours based on our values.
We like to pay credit where credit is due. In 2021, we did exactly that; 75% of our team got promoted.
And rightly so - in case you missed it, 2021 was our best year yet.
To kick off 2022 right, we wanted to highlight one person from each department and ask how they get promoted and what they want to achieve this year?
What motivates you to work hard and push yourself?It's been great to see the company grow from a 6 person start-up in a small Leicester Square office, to a 35+ person business in a legitimate office. I get to work with some amazing clients and candidates.
What Going forward, what do you hope to achieve?The next goal is to grow the mobile team and expand more into Europe and beyond.
What motivates you to work hard and push yourself?Giving an amazing service to candidates and clients that I represent keeps me going! I thrive on knowing I have made a difference to people's lives e.g. placing a Founding Engineer in an early-stage startup that is going to take their business to the next level, or relocating an Engineer & their family.
What Going forward, what do you hope to achieve?Team Manager: growing out the Backend Engineering team with even more amazing people!
What motivates you to work hard and push yourself?The development that I’ve made as a tech recruiter over the past 5 years and the progression that my career has taken since I joined Few&Far. I’m motivated because, after all this time, I’m still learning my trade and have only scratched the surface of my full potential.
What Going forward, what do you hope to achieve?Become a better manager and colleague, whilst helping more Senior Leaders within Tech take the next step in their professional careers.
What motivates you to work hard and push yourself?Seeing people I've hired not only enjoy their jobs but also progress and succeed. I'm driven by the progression plans in place for my role and the opportunities coming up over the next few years to grow the business.
What Going forward, what do you hope to achieve?I want to hit the company's hiring goal for this year and play a part in executing our exciting company plans. I can’t wait to see how the company grows over the next few years.
What motivates you to work hard and push yourself?I enjoy what I do because I know I am making positive changes in people's lives and creating amazing opportunities. The joy I receive from placing people with some amazing start-ups, moving people to be closer to friends and family, and creating strong relationships with people from all walks of life really drives me.
What Going forward, what do you hope to achieve?This year I aim to hit two promotions and start my management career. I aim to bring on talent scouts, and hopefully help create the next recruitment superstar.
What motivates you to work hard and push yourself?One reason I love my job is problem solving. In marketing, we look at our current challenges and what we want to achieve. You really have to use a mix of creative and commercial skills to bridge the gap between where we are now and where we want to be tomorrow. That’s what drives me the most.
What Going forward, what do you hope to achieve?That’s a big question. My number one ambition is to make Few&Far a household name in recruitment. There’s space now for a recruitment brand to lead and change the way marketing is done in the industry. And I want it to be us.
But that’s not everyone…Tito, Megan, Jack, Reece, Ciara, Glen, Jordan and Tony also achieved a promotion (or two) last year.
Here's a word from our Founders:
2021 was record-breaking in several ways for Few&Far. Not only did we exceed our financial and hiring targets; we also moved into a new, larger office, helped 100’s of people find new careers and became one of the most recommended recruitment companies in Europe.
When reflecting on last year, we’re filled with pride. Our team has achieved so much.
But for us, one of the most rewarding things is watching our people develop their careers and achieve new heights.
We have no doubt that our team will exceed their ambitions and make us proud!
