Gekko Profiles - Tom
The Gekko team is forever growing and the last couple of months have been no different for us. We have been on the lookout for talented people to join our vibrant nationwide team.
Our recruitment process has obviously been a little different. Tom our new Data & Insight Manager, describes how the virtual experience has been for him:
“In the middle of lockdown I didn’t think that recruiting would be a priority for many businesses, so was excited to see what Gekko had on offer. The role appealed because it provided an opportunity for me to apply my skills and experience gained in the retail sector to a great portfolio of clients and brands.
The video call interviews were a new experience and it was obviously strange not to meet the Gekko team in person or get a tour of the office, but I could tell extra effort had been made to make me feel welcome. With everybody working remotely the team did a great job in planning my induction and getting me prepared to start once the office could reopen.
I’ve been on board several weeks now and have got stuck straight in understanding and now producing the reporting and insight that Gekko provides to clients. With many people still WFH I’m hoping that I can get to meet them in person soon rather just via a vc!”
