We caught up with Marketing Recruitment Consultant Victoria Fuentes, who told us all about her career background, the best parts of her new role, and even gives some advice for getting started in the industry! 



What has been the highlight of your new role so far?

Learning how to be a 360 recruiter. This is when you are able to take on a job and find the right candidates for the role (180) but are also able to build and maintain relationships with clients who will pass on roles to you when vacancies become available (the other 180). Although my background is focused on PPC, this role has allowed me to learn about more areas of the Marketing industry – such as CRM, Social Media and affiliates! The team has been a massive highlight of my new role as well! We don’t just call ourselves a team, we behave like one too! We share roles, candidates, and insights with each other. We work on roles individually but often collaborate too (which makes it so much quicker!) and we celebrate each other’s success!


Who should speak to you?

Anyone with a Marketing background or degree looking to start or progress in their professional career – I’d love to hear from you! I specialise in marketing roles and work with some of the biggest and well-known companies in Manchester, which means if you come to me I can guarantee you multiple interviews for successful and attractive companies.


What are your tips for someone currently thinking about a career in recruitment?
