New Starter Spotlight – David Ellis
Please give a warm welcome to our newest member of the ENG Family – David Ellis. Not to be confused with our MD Matt Ellis (no relation, apparently), David was a senior consultant at Reed for over three years specialising within procurement and supply chain. He then had exposure at Michael Page where he progressed his career within Facilities Management.
David has now joined The FM Network as a Senior Consultant, and is based at our office in London where he specialises within operational FM. Read the interview below to find out more about the latest #RisingStar of Network House!
> Where did you work before you joined ENG?
At Michael Page as an interim consultant covering indirect procurement.
> What drew you to recruitment in the first place?
I came to London from Wales 4 years ago looking for work. I registered with Hays and secured an interview for a sales role in London. Hays themselves asked if I wanted to go for an assessment day with them for a recruitment job and the rest is, as they say, history. I like the fact that I help people find their ideal role. In some cases it can be transformational and I’m still in touch with people who I placed 4 years ago which I find hugely gratifying. I also love the commercial aspect of the role where I get paid for the services I offer.
> Describe your personality in three words.
Energetic, driven and kind-hearted.
> One of ENG’s strongest values is inspiration. Who inspires you the most?
Gareth Bale not only because he is a fellow Welshman but he’s true professional and hugely successful person on and off the filed.
> What would you do if you didn’t work in recruitment?
> How do you spend your spare time?
Socialising mainly down the pub! I also like to keep fit and sing welsh songs!
> What are you most excited about working at Executive Network Group?
Making a lot of money and learning from the best.
