WELCOME JOE FIRTH TO OUR TEAM

Welcome to Joe Firth who we're delighted has joined the growing 300 North team as a Principal Recruitment Consultant.

To introduce Joe and allow everyone to get to know him, we asked him a few questions to start us off:

 

Tell us a little bit about yourself?

I am a very friendly chap who likes to have a good craic with my friends, colleagues and family. I enjoy helping others and adding positive contributions where possible. I have worked in recruitment for 8 years since leaving University, it’s a demanding job but rewarding! Having good colleagues and a good working environment makes all the difference!

Please tell everyone your new role and a little bit about your professional background?

I have worked within M&E trades initially recruiting, electricians, plumbers and pipefitters on sites around Yorkshire. I then progressed to white collar M&E permanent placements and gradually picked up FM along the way. I will be working alongside the existing team here at 300 North, using my existing skills and knowledge.

 

What is the first job you ever had?

I used to do gardening jobs aged 14 for people at the weekend. I got a lot of satisfaction from making the old people who couldn’t manage to do their own gardens smile.

 

What do you like to do in your spare time?

I like to spend time with my wife and daughter. Going on trips and taking part in fun activities like soft play!  I used to play cricket and rugby but not so much now! I try, sporadically to attend the gym.

 

Dream travel location?

Thailand or Vietnam. Love the scenery and culture.

 

What is your favourite sport?

Rugby Union I used to play a lot when younger- The body isn’t up to it anymore!

 

Favourite movie/book?

Favourite Movie- Lord of the rings trilogy. Favourite book- The Hobbit- Very geeky I know!

 

Favourite country visited
Bali- Fantastic country, really hot, really cheap and everyone is super friendly.

 

What is the first thing you would buy if you won the lottery

Depends how much… probably a ridiculous super car like a Buggatti

 

Hidden talents?

I am a keen gardener and make a mean hanging basket.

 

Thanks Joe, we are really looking forward to you being part of the 300 North team and to you getting to know all of our clients and candidates.
