You’ve got to kiss a lot of frogs

‘You’ve got to kiss a lot of frogs’ is the hilarious view of recruitment described by Tom Morrissey, Personnel Manager at Parsons Son & Basley. The company has a culture of investing in the next generation of talent in the property sector and over the last four years has employed 15 apprentices, six of these remain with the company as permanent employees. And it is Tom who has been interviewing both potential apprentices and other staff members. So we asked him what is your piece of advice for someone starting in a new position, Tom said ‘ I tell them 90% of success is turning up and have a great attitude.’ Are you passionate about property, hard working, can turn up on time and are willing to learn and give our clients fantastic service? Then Tom would like to hear from you,
