Meet the team: Rebecca Hughes, Sales Executive
Why did you want to work for college.jobs.ac.uk?
Being a University owned company, college.jobs.ac.uk has a great working environment. You get the feeling you work ‘with’ people rather than ‘for’ people. I was excited to hear jobs.ac.uk had launched a board for FE only, college.jobs.ac.uk was relatively new when I joined so I was excited to help it grow while assisting the FE sector.
Is there a typical day?
My working day can vary, I can be out on the road visiting my customers on campus or helping clients in the office arranging campaigns. Giving advice to our customers on the best options, for the best results. No one day is the same but I do love getting out to visit colleges or interacting with college staff at conferences and events.
Could you pick one highlight from your time at college.jobs.ac.uk?
Seeing the board turn a year old and looking back at all the colleges we helped in our first year.
How does college.jobs.ac.uk help institutions in the FE sector overcome challenges?
Being a University-owned Jobs Board, we have a direct insight on what is needed to attract the best talent. Our aim is to make education recruitment the best it can be while understanding the challenges the sector faces. Whether it be restrictions on budget or competition from industry, we have the expertise and knowledge to help.
