Heba was looking for an opportunity to get her teeth stuck into a new industry and develop her skills. Without alot of experience in her chosen new field, our Engineering team were able to offer support and help Heba secure her new role.
Having been in her new role for just over a year, we caught up with Heba to find out how she was getting on, and how she found the service provided by Zenopa...
What were you looking for when you were seeking a new role?
"I wanted to find a company that would take the chance on me and offer me a job in the engineering industry. I was offered this job with no engineering experience post my engineering degree. I have developed a career in the field of Medical Devices as a System Specialist and gaining experience both on hardware and software issues in the office and on the field."
What benefits have you had since securing your role?
"I have achieved a personal goal. Many companies rejected applications for an engineering role; I was giving up however I gained confidence and confirmed this career path is what I am most intrigued by and want to progress in. It has also helped me set a higher budget for wedding planning and be able to contribute in buying a house with my fiancé."
How did you find the recruitment process?
"The recruitment process was very simple. I was always contacted with job roles and when I was interested in this particular role it was a very quick and smooth process. Staff at Zenopa contacted me and communicated with me regularly. They also contacted me on the first day of my new job, emailed me after a month of joining and after my probation; very friendly and thoughtful people."
How has your work/life balance improved?
"I wouldn’t say improved as my job requires me to travel numerous times across the UK. I spend a lot of outside work hours on territory and this time is not accounted for nor do I get it back. This is the down fall of this job."
How did you find the service provided to you by Zenopa?
"I am very happy with the service provided by Zenopa."
Any other comments/feedback that you wish to give?
"I am very happy to carry on using Zenopa as my preferred recruitment agency."
