Get to know our Talent Acquisition Associate, Kelsey Ellis! Kelsey is a vital member of the Managed Recruitment team and we wanted to share her experience with BSG.
What do you enjoy about working with BSG?
I was very lucky to be referred to BSG while I was taking the HR management program at Algonquin College by two different people! I started out doing my college work placement with BSG, transitioned to casual work and eventually to full-time in July 2020. It’s been a great year and I’ve managed to work with an incredible variety of clients.
What do you do during a typical day? Is there something about your work that you enjoy the most?
I love the range of tasks and people I get to work with every day! I typically spend time writing or editing job postings, reviewing resumes, holding interviews, checking references, liaising with candidates and hiring managers. I also work on the HR team with several clients either as their embedded HR representative, or on specific projects. I really like meeting new people and getting to interact with a range of people in different industries.
How do you keep you motivated during these unprecedented times (COVID-19)?
It’s definitely been a challenge to remain consistently motivated over the past year, but I feel fortunate to work for supportive and motivating people at BSG. I find communication with my colleagues, clients and managers really helps me stay accountable and focused on task. I value physical activity, particularly anything outdoor, so I really try to make integrating that into my day to day life a high priority.
