The Best Way To Get Into Recruitment

My journey at Maloy & Flynn began when I joined the academy, which was a 4 month training programme to become a recruitment consultant. This is a very rare opportunity as a lot of recruitment company’s don’t run such a training program.


It was a period full of ups and downs trying to find my industry to specialise in. I decided to utilise my university degree and become a specialist recruiter within IT/Technology and I can now happily call myself a recruitment consultant!


I recommend anyone with little or no experience wanting to get into recruitment to apply for  Maloy & Flynn’s academy. The training is great, I’m in a career where I feel motivated and supported every day and I have met some amazing people along the way!


I look forward to what the future holds here at Maloy & Flynn.




One of the most essential points of being a great recruiter is being successful at account managing both your clients and your candidates.

Along with finding the perfect candidate and matching them to their ideal role, the most important thing is keeping both parties happy.

Where a lot of recruitment consultants go wrong is not keeping both parties up to date EVERY step of the way. So when the candidate is unsuccessful or the client is being very slow at coming back to you no matter whether it’s good or bad news keeping both parties involved is critical.

It’s all too easy to neglect or ignore that phone call because you haven’t had the news you wanted. Good candidates will always be approached by other consultants and at Maloy & Flynn we all strive to deliver our core value of Customer Service Excellence.

Outside & Inside Maloy & Flynn


As a previous client and candidate of Maloy & Flynn Recruitment Ltd, it is easy to think that recruitment is a simple process, from their friendly open approach when they registered me, to the service I received, was flawless and the team made it look so easy. As a client I wanted a recruitment consultancy that really knew the local market, in and around Leicester and these guys certainly did that and that made life easy for me by saving me time, so I only had to look at a handful of good candidates. As a candidate I needed an agency to understand what made me tick and not just have roles thrown at me aimlessly.



Well what can I say, it all looked so easy from the outside however its much more hard work on the inside!

The recruitment team work extremely hard to be Sector Specialists, constantly keeping up to date with industry information in their dedicated sectors. This helps them to get vacancies on board and then by utilising every resource possible to find the right candidates to meet both the skills needed and the cultural fit. The consultant responsible for the vacancy will visit the clients site and really understand what the environment is like and what the team and cultural fit needs to be, as well as meeting with the hiring manager to understand exactly what they are looking for.


The team really enjoy matching the right candidates to the right roles and passionately believe in getting it right and delivering an excellent service.

It’s also a high energy, fun environment, with a great out of hour’s social aspect and fantastic incentives for the highest performing team members. A great place to work!

When is the best time to start looking for an apprenticeship?

It’s exam season, everything you have worked towards for the past two years is coming together and the pressure really is on. This is your chance to show what you are made of, and after that? Of course, it’s summer holidays, time to relax, kick back, spend some time in the sun and prepare for September when you’ll start applying for apprenticeships … right? … Well maybe not… as they say, “The early bird catches the worm”

It’s understandable that for as long as you have known the summer has been yours to do with what you will, but if you have just left school or college and are looking to move into the world of work or apprenticeships there will be opportunities out there for you NOW.

So what does it matter if you enjoy one last blow out, after all you’ve earned it? Well the fact of the matter is that really great employers with the best opportunities out there don’t think in terms of summer holidays. They think in terms of finding the best person to give their fantastic opportunity to. They think in terms of looking for someone motivated, on the ball, and most importantly someone available to join their organisation.

Sure you can hold on until September, just like “everyone else”, but just keep in mind that by then you will be competing against “everyone else” for the remaining positions available…or you can get your plan in place now, beat the rush and be at the front of the queue.

If you need advise or guidance regarding apprenticeships, how they work, or how to make a successful application, contact Maloy & Flynn on 0116 2755666 for honest, impartial advise.

**How to act at your Christmas party**

MF ChristmasWell, that’s it! The John Lewis Christmas advert is on TV, Mariah Carey has been on the radio and the city centre Christmas light switch on in Leicester is tomorrow! Whether you like it or not the festive season is upon us!

The reaction we all have to Christmas is usually similar to Marmite, you either love it or hate it! But along with Christmas comes the sometimes dreaded Christmas party! Whether you are usually the life of the party or the person who quietly sits by the food table, there are norms everyone should follow at the Christmas party!

Keep the mistletoe away:
The office hottie is right below the mistletoe and you’re raring to go but think it over, is it really worth it? No, and definitely not in front of your boss and the boss’s boss!

Drunken mess:
Have a few drinks, they are free and might be of good quality, but by no way does that mean it’s upon you to empty every bottle of alcohol you find!

Social media slave:
Sitting in a corner updating Facebook, Twitter and Instagram is not only extremely antisocial, but seriously unwise if you’ve had a drink… or three!

Cry baby:
There’s always one! If you are prone to a tear or two, then reread the paragraph about drinking too much!

Dress code:
The office party is not the time to experiment with that little black number or that comedy suit!

The X Factor:
Now is not the time to try out your best impression of Adele or attempt to dance like Mick Jagger!

Take our advice, don’t learn the hard way!


Why I do what I do

So I’ve got a couple of spare moments over lunch and thought I’d finally put together a little bit about why it is that I wake up in the morning, put my suit on and actually look forward to walking through the doors at Maloy and Flynn every single morning… some may even say I love Mondays.

For those of you who don’t know me or haven’t looked at my profile here’s a little insight into my history, I’ve been in recruitment for 7 years now (I know I know I can’t be that old right?!). I’m not going to lie and tell you that as a kid I dreamt of being a Recruitment Consultant (I actually wanted to be a WWF Wrestler but I guess the family genes ruled that out from the moment I was born!), in fact like most Recruiters I fell into it and I’ve not looked back since.

Over those 7 years I’ve worked for a start up, set up on my own, worked for a national and now for an independent. I can honestly say that I am happier now in my career than I have ever been and I attribute that to a couple of simple things; RESPECT, BELIEF and TRUST.

Over the last two years I’ve been shown that Maloy and Flynn respect me, that they believe in me and that trust me.

This is why every morning when I leave my house and lock my front door I’m not dreading walking through the office doors. I don’t need a coffee to get me ready and I’m not sitting here doing my best not to pick up my phone or reply to any emails.

Last year I was the highest performer in the business and it’s something I plan on retaining this year, however, this year will be even more satisfactory as I’ll have done it with a team of outstanding Consultants under me who I’m sure in twelve months time will have aspirations to win the award themselves and I hope they do because it will prove that the RESPECT, BELIEF and TRUST I hold for them has helped them just as much as it helped me.

Now comes the time where I’m looking to add another member to my team and I’m looking for someone who wants to

  • Be BELIEVED in
  • Earn more commission than they ever thought possible
  • Not work within a heavily restricted environment

So if you want to come into work looking forward to the day ahead why is your CV not in my inbox yet (my email address is Kish@maloyflynn.co.uk)

Heading back from the City

It’s always the way isn’t? You go to university, study hard in your degree, make some great friends and then decide to head to the lights of the big city to find that golden graduate position and make your fortune.

One in three (1) graduates will move to London after completing university. This is a huge amount of the workforce, but what happens next? How long do you stay before moving on elsewhere? The average age according to polls is the early thirties. (2) Looking at these statistics gives us a clear message:  A huge portion of young graduates will move to London to gain their foothold in the career of their choice and then leave once they decide to settle down.

Whilst we’re all huge fans of the localities we know and love, we understand the draw to the city. I’ve been there, most of us have. There does get to a time where you begin questioning why you are paying triple the average rent for a one bedroom flat for a shoebox and why every single morning you spend half an hour in a dank, hot pipe shoved against a stranger who refuses to stop reading their copy of ‘The Metro’ – It does get a little tiring.


If we look at the 2015 graduates from De Montfort and Leicester University, that numbers around 3,500 graduates leaving for London this year alone.

The figure is similar for people returning to the city who have previously lived or grown up here (3) We can safely assume a proportion of these are those who have spent their time in London and are now heading back to the land they know, looking to start a family or because they’re tired of the city.

Maloy and Flynn know this and are one of the first choices for professionals who are looking to stay in the career they know and love yet want to lay the groundwork for living back in the East Midlands. In 2014 we doubled in size and cover a huge array of industries, each with their own specialist consultant managing the process.

If you’re considering a move back or simply would like to hear about any opportunities before you do so, give Kish Gokani a call on 0116 2755 666 or drop an email to kish@maloyflynn.co.uk for a confidential and informal discussion!
