Andrew Welsh named Manchester’s best young recruiter

We’re in a jubilant mood today in the Instinct offices, after Andrew Welsh, head of our e-learning recruitment division and longest-serving employee, scooped Talent & Recruiter of the Year at the Manchester Young Talent Awards last night!

The awards showcase the most talented, dedicated and exciting young professionals working in and around Manchester. The judges selected Andrew in a very strong category that featured some hugely successful individuals – we’re over the moon that his ability has been publicly showcased.

Andrew joined Instinct in 2011 with no prior recruitment experience. But he immersed himself in e-learning from day one, and his strong work ethic, dedication and willingness to learn set him on the path to success. After a fantastic year of development and business contribution during 2014, he was promoted to a head of division position with the business – particularly impressive for someone with only three years’ industry experience at the time.

So what did Andrew have to say about his win?

“My career at Instinct has been an amazing journey – an exceptional place for me to learn and improve. The company have been very supportive, yet demanded the best from me and I’ve been able to really focus on the elearning sector, develop my knowledge and given the freedom to build up my own client base and team. The award’s fantastic, it’s great to have the recognition that I’m doing things right.”

And our very own owner-director Mike Ward added: “Andrew really deserves this award and we’re delighted his abilities and attitude have been publicly acknowledged. Andrew embodies all the qualities that matter to Instinct; he’s utterly professional in how he conducts business, hugely hardworking, puts quality and honesty for our clients and candidates first, and is fun to work with.

“He’s risen extremely fast through the ranks at Instinct and it’s thoroughly well-deserved. We’re thrilled to have him on the team and are sure he’ll see plenty more success in the future.”

So if you’re an e-learning professional who fancies working with one of the best recruiters in the business – give Andrew’s team a call!
