We're delighted to welcome on board another intake of ambitious, talented graduates to our Graduate Training Scheme.
We asked them to each write a short bio about themselves before starting with the company in August 2018:
"I studied for both my undergraduate degree in Management Studies-Psychology and for my postgraduate research degree in Psychology at the University of Aberdeen.
As a graduate, I knew that I wanted to work in a dynamic business environment with a strong focus on people skills and sales, which is why I became attracted to the graduate programme. I am looking forward to receiving the guidance and training, meeting and working with you, the opportunity to gain hands on experience and to progress within the company over time.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time and socialising with my family and friends, reading, hiking, swimming and travelling."
My name is Hamish and I am 22 year old graduate from the University of Portsmouth having studied BSc Sports Management and Development. In addition, I had previously spent a semester at the University of Pittsburgh on a soccer scholarship. I would describe myself as a confident, talkative, sociable and humorous individual. I enjoy meeting new people and love putting a smile on others faces. I am a bit of a fitness fanatic and spend the majority of my spare time taking part in physical activity. I play football competitively and am also a keen golfer. It would be fair to say I am interested in just about anything related to sport.
I have worked at The Renaissance Club in East Lothian for the past 5 years as a seasonal golf assistant in between my studies. Here I uncovered the importance of first impressions and in essence learnt how to speak to people in a professional manner. I am looking forward to kickstarting my career in recruitment at Eden Scott. The fast-paced competitive environment in which this industry operates in excites me and the social aspects of the job are a huge pull factor. I know I have a lot to learn but I am sure that Eden Scott is the perfect place to hone my skill set and become a successful recruitment consultant.
My name is Heather Murdoch and am 22 years old. I recently graduated from Edinburgh Napier University after studying Criminology. I currently live in Glasgow, and originally come from Ayr. From the age of 8, I was a competitive figure skater for 12 years where I became British Champion at 16 and travelled across the world competing internationally. In my spare time, I still like to stay active by playing field hockey
I am looking forward to starting at Eden Scott for the new challenges that the job will bring, hopefully putting my competitive nature to good use.
My name is Christian Richards and I graduated back in 2016 from the University of Edinburgh with a Joint Honours in Philosophy and Theology. Since then, I have been involved in helping my brother develop his events business and launch into the wedding, corporate, and stag and hen sectors through partnering with key hotels, castles and businesses. I also spent a year at Sumdog, creating and developing relationships with top decision makers in school districts throughout the USA. I also volunteer with a youth work charity called Scripture Union Scotland. When I’m not working, I love to get out on the roads and mountains on a bike and cook (and eat!) good food with a nice G&T.
I’m looking forward to joining the team at Eden Scott, getting into the world of recruitment and learning the tricks of the trade from the best!
