Emily Williams – Senior Compliance Officer
Your background prior to RIG
Before I started RIG I was working as a domiciliary carer, which meant travelling from home to home looking after vulnerable people due to old age or illnesses that made them incapable of looking after themselves or just requiring the extra support around their homes. The client’s ages varied from 15 years old – old age. I had a gap in employment for just under a year after working as a carer, this was due to personal circumstances.
Why choose Healthcare recruitment? What made you choose RIG Healthcare over other recruitment businesses?
I was looking for an admin based roll when I was ready to go back into work. I put my CV on different websites and I was offered an interview with RIG to start as an apprentice. I choose RIG because the options for growth were promising and I was keen to get myself stuck into something that I would enjoy (which I have). I also liked the idea of being educated as well as working on the job. During my time working for RIG, I have felt supported and immediately felt like I was part of the team. My manager at the time guided me through all the processes and was more than happy to sit down and give me one to one support when I needed it. RIG is a great place to work.
Your RIG Healthcare Journey (e.g. CO to Senior)
I started RIG as an apprentice in January 2016. I was due to finish my apprenticeship at the end of February in 2017 but I ended up finishing early in November 2016. Once I had finished I was promoted to Senior Compliance Officer within the first 2 weeks of finishing my apprenticeship. I am now enjoying my role within the company.
How RIG Healthcare has helped you develop (e.g. Training, personal development)
Working with RIG has given me a qualification in Business and Admin – Level 3. I would say that my confidence within myself has dramatically increased. I have been more sure and confident in my decision making. I have had a lot of training sessions with Managers through the time I have spent with RIG. A few months ago, I took part in a management course which helped me to adapt to my new role within the company. The course benefitted me a lot, as I was moving into the management area of the team.
What does RIG Healthcare offer you and/or potential new employees
Progression (if you work hard and show dedication to the job), training, team building, support, good relationships with other colleagues.
What does your future within the business look like? (goals / aspirations)
I am comfortable in my role now. But in the future, I would like to see myself progress within the business to better myself. I feel like I’m doing well and I’m getting more experienced day by day. More people come to me for advice and help with their workloads.
How do you feel about the CPL acquisition of the business?
The news on the business expanding really excited me as it will allow employees more progression within the company. I think it is a very good thing because the business will grow and relationships should be stronger within the company.
What do you like best about the company?
The people I work with is the best thing about the company. Everyone works as a team and gets on well.
Your best incentive received
Fire walking was the best incentive received. Something I’ve never done before, but it was fun to build the relationships with Sales as well.
Your best moment / experience
My best experience from RIG was the management course a few months ago, the course gave us lots of information and ideas on how to manage, deal with heavy workloads etc. It really helped me to adapt.
We wholeheartedly believe that RIG is a pretty special place to work; not just a job but a lifestyle choice, a choice to commit to continuous improvement and work to be the best version of yourself.Affi Khan, CEO, RIG Healthcare
