Success stories

Over 250 specialist consultants have chosen to build their careers at Ignata and we are proud of the number of personal success stories we have been part of in a short space of time.

Joshua Charles - Divisional Manager, FMCG, 5 years

"I joined Ignata as a graduate with no prior recruitment or sales experience.

As well as my initial recruitment training, I was given access to an experienced mentor who provided me with insight and expertise to further my development.

The early client exposure Ignata gave me in my development has allowed me to establish strong relationships with international brands such as L’Oreal, Johnson & Johnson and Mars.

Through hard work and Ignata’s commitment to develop talent, I am now consistently a leading consultant in the billing figures.

Throughout my time at Ignata I have been provided with internal and external training opportunities from industry experts. Two promotions later I am now the Divisional Manager for the FMCG team and a true testament to the success of the Ignata development programme."

Carlotta Actis Barone - Senior Consultant, International Fashion, 3 years

"I had previously worked as a Designer for 6 years, and just graduated from a post-graduate course in Buying and Merchandising. What interested me in my role here was the chance to use my in-depth fashion knowledge but at the
same time, learn some completely new skills, and of course the good earning opportunities.

I received lots of training and support and felt like I was contributing to the team from an early stage. After 2 months at Ignata I made my first placement and that’s when the buzz started!

Everyone in the office is helpful and supportive, and there is a culture of healthy competition! My team has supported me step by step, and I have progressed quickly, being promoted twice since I joined."

Travis Sumner - Internal Recruiter, less than 1 year

"Even though I am fairly new to the business, right from the start I felt part of the “Ignata Family”. I work closely with senior members of the organisation who all have a very hands on
approach, and a genuine interest in everyone’s individual roles.

Ignata’s vision was clear to me from the very beginning. I had a distinct understanding of the future plans for the business and most importantly where my own career could progress.

In addition to my own role responsibilities I have been given the opportunity to get involved in marketing projects. Having my creative opinion heard and respected after such a short time in the organisation is something that has instilled great confidence and belief in myself."

Ineta Skatovaite - Principal Consultant, International Fashion, 4 years

"There is a real focus on progression within the business, and I have been given the responsibility of managing our Resourcer, as well as having a lot of input on team decisions in preparation for
my next step up to Manager level.

Ignata offers a truly diverse working environment allowing me to work in the way the best suits me. The nature of recruitment sometimes requires long hours in the office, yet I never feel unmotivated as we always try to have fun with
everything we do.

Ignata is a large organisation that has kept the family feel where has an impact and the communication is able to flow without hierarchical layers."
