TDM Academy – the future is very bright
The one thing I am proudest about at TDM is the impressive statistic that 70% of the senior team started as trainees. I love the team ethos and culture that has developed at TDM and I really enjoy seeing people grow and succeed in their careers.
This year at TDM we started our first Graduate academy with three trainees. The academy is an intense 3-month indoctrination into the exciting world of recruitment and gives the trainees a good grounding in all the core areas of operation at TDM.
In February this year we welcomed the Josh, Mike and Aaron who had minimal to no recruitment experience and were fresh out of University. Prior to joining TDM their work experience varied from bar work, stacking shelves at supermarkets to office admin. They are now fully functioning recruitment consultants and have had numerous successful placements.
Mike, a law graduate, is now recruiting surveyors and has undergone a fantastic journey since joining TDM:
“I was looking for a fast-paced environment where I wanted to earn good money based on my effort and results. I have found that at TDM and the academy has given me all the skills needed to make money.”
Aaron had been looking to get into recruitment for many months after seeing the success his friends in the industry were having;
“I had set my heart on starting a career in recruitment but no one seemed willing to give me a chance. I really didn’t want to move to London as I had all my friends and family in Kent. TDM has given me a London Type job without the commute and travel expense.”
Josh had exposure to high street recruitment in a sales role, but was not given any real training and support. He really wanted a structured learning environment where he would have the opportunity to develop and learn:
“The best part of the academy is the continued support and learning. The senior team take an active involvement in my success and nothing is ever to much trouble. I feel part of a team and given the time to progress at my own pace.”
The Academy is going to be the cornerstone of TDM growth and as a business we will be looking to stay true to the principle of a majority of the business joining as trainees.
For me, the exciting times are still to come. I fully expect this year’s trainees to be next year’s senior consultants who help trainees to enhance their skills.
We enrol three academies per year and if you are considering a career in recruitment, please give me a call 07801-082-357 or drop me a line email@example.com.
