Q&A with Yasmin Findlay

What has your journey at Lorien been like so far?

I’ve been at Lorien for eight years and have worked my way up from Resourcer to Senior Account Manager with a team of three. Lorien have recognised any development opportunities at every step, and I have been encouraged to think about my future career path.

What is a career highlight for you or your team?

When I was a Junior Account Manager, I ran an assessment centre for a project with a client. This was a great learning experience for me and threw me in at the deep end. As a result, we made around 25 placements and filled the whole service desk. Many of the people we placed were graduate level and I have seen many of them develop in their careers since.

What is the Lorien workplace culture like?

Lorien is a great place to work – it’s all about the people. A lot of my colleagues have been with Lorien since I started, and people very rarely leave (and if they do, they always end up coming back). We have a very candid environment, and I can always be myself with my team and the wider business.

What are your top tips for anyone going for an interview?

Be your whole self and do your research. There are a lot of recruitment companies out there, but Lorien is definitely one of the good ones. We have such a variety of people in our teams – and that is how we like it!

What does a typical day at work look like for you?

My day can be very varied between project work for clients, market information and team/client meetings. I have been working with many of my clients for a number of years and have been able to build great relationships with them, which is a part of the job I love.

What is it that drew you to Lorien?

A friend referred me for the role after telling me it was a great place to work. When I got shown the office and also met with the team, I knew it would be somewhere I could see a future and here I am eight years later.
