After graduating from Bentley University in the US, Echo spent a large part of her career in the Netherlands before moving to the UK. She now works in Denmark as a senior human factors engineer for Phillips-Medisize, a position we helped her achieve. We spoke to her about her experience with Vivid Resourcing to see how she’d found her time at both this and her previous role, which we’d also placed her in.
Like many people, Echo found her employment changed by the COVID-19 pandemic. We had just helped her find a position in Bristol for med-tech company Kinneir Dufort when the pandemic hit and the company had to downsize, losing around a third of its staff – this included Echo. She’d moved from the Netherlands to the UK for the role, which was already a major change, only to find the role disappear. Our priority was to find a good role to place her in as soon as possible.
She had turned to Vivid before, after talking to a range of different recruitment agencies while trying to find a change in job while working in the Netherlands. She found that none of them understood her specialist expertise until she contacted Vivid. Alisdair, one of our recruiters, had stayed in contact with her since first getting in touch, so we were able to react quickly to find her a new role.
