“The role keeps evolving and challenging you. This is what attracted me to PageGroup.”
Why did you join PageGroup?
There are three main factors that I consider while evaluating an opportunity. The first is the company's culture, the second is the company's legacy and the third is the challenge and responsibilities the firm offers. PageGroup ticked all the boxes.
PageGroup is a very meritocratic organisation. It has a culture that empowers and enables you to thrive. It's a multinational company which offers immense opportunities. The training provided here is best-in-class.
The role keeps evolving and challenging you. This is what attracted me to PageGroup.
Can you tell us about your PageGroup journey so far?
I joined PageGroup after completing my Master in Business Administration (MBA). Prior to that, I had two years of experience as a Business Correspondent with one of India's leading news channels. I joined PageGroup as a Consultant in the Mumbai office with a focus on mid to senior level recruitment in the Private Equity, Investment Banking and Consulting space. In the last three years I have been promoted twice and now manage a team of four consultants.
The journey has been immensely rewarding. My role has constantly evolved and I’ve always been offered new and exciting challenges.
Over the years, I got an opportunity to work directly with senior stakeholders in the industry advising them on their human capital requirements. After learning the ropes of sales and business development, I am now entrusted with Profit & Loss responsibility and maximising our market share in my vertical. In the last three years, each day has been challenging and PageGroup does not allow any monotony to set in.
What are your career aspirations with PageGroup?
I aspire to take greater responsibility within the Group. Probably launching a new vertical in the India market for Page over the next couple of years.
Do you have any advice to anybody thinking about joining PageGroup?
I think very few organisations in the world offer you a platform which is meritocratic, organically grown and truly global. If you're looking to build a career in consultative sales, then this is the ideal place to be in.
What is most rewarding about your job?
My job has been very rewarding and immensely satisfying. The monetary incentives and rewards are best in the industry. Apart from that, I got an opportunity to be a part of Platinum Club twice in three years. But what's most rewarding is the recognition and responsibilities that come along with the job.
The culture of working and partying hard with a peer group that's young, ambitious and very supportive makes work fun. Training imparted by global experts enables us to hone our business development and managerial skills. The dynamic nature of the job and the environment at PageGroup ensures that you're learning something new and growing each day which is immensely satisfying.
