A few months back, Jack Smith joined the Interlink team to lend his legal recruitment expertise. With some quick-fire questions, we find out more about him, from his career background to what he does outside of the office…
What brought you to Interlink Recruitment?
I had heard lots of good things about the business, especially with regards to the different way of doing things here. It was a natural progression for my career too, coming in to the business with a promotion to Senior Consultant.
What were you doing before you came to Interlink?
I was working in legal recruitment previously, I started doing that in 2016 and it was where I learnt my tools for recruitment.
What did you study before you started full time employment?
I studied English at Manchester Metropolitan University, which involved lots of writing, but it was the script writing element of the course I most enjoyed.
What do you enjoy about recruitment?
I like being my own boss, managing my own workload. It’s up to me to make things happen, to generate new clients and build relationships with candidates. The commission is always nice too!
How have you settled in at Interlink Recruitment?
Very well actually – it’s a new challenge with new people and I am working with new clients, covering a new area. An exciting time and one I am enjoying.
What do you do when not at work?
I have my own menswear clothing brand, The Yard Clothing, which keeps me busy outside of work. I work on it with a friend, getting the brand out there on social media as well as designing the clothes.
What are your personal goals?
I am about to move into my first house over in Whitefield, it’s the beginning of a new chapter which I am very excited about.
Tell us something about yourself we’d never know…
I am also a keen amateur photographer and can often be found snapping away behind a lens.
