In our 'My time at HFG' series, we ask our employees how it has been settling in to life at HFG in order to gain a better understanding of the challenges our staff face and the aspects they most enjoy!
Our next guest is Jono Conolly, a Consultant within our GI Actuarial team.
"After Joining HFG in September 2022, I am delighted to share that I have recently been promoted to the position of Consultant in the Non-life Actuarial team. Since joining, I have acquired numerous new skills and have found great enjoyment in working directly with clients, familiarising myself with their businesses and identifying potential candidates for their job openings.
Prior to joining HFG, I had only a basic understanding of the recruitment field. After nearly a year with the company however, I can confidently say that I have gained a significant amount of knowledge of the industry in which I work, and that I am constantly looking to improve on my current skill set.
With a background in sports and a degree in Sport and Exercise Science from Durham University, I am a firm believer in the principle that hard work leads to greater rewards. The Non-life Actuarial team, comprised of Will, Jake, and Rhianne, has been instrumental in helping me settle in and gain a comprehensive understanding of the entire recruitment process, from beginning to end. HFG as a whole provides an excellent work environment, where the drive to succeed is palpable, yet there is also room for light-heartedness and humour.
In conclusion, my experience so far at HFG has been thoroughly enjoyable, and I take pride in witnessing my personal and professional growth within the company. Reflecting on the relationships I have built and the valuable knowledge I have acquired in the insurance industry, I am grateful for the fulfilling and rewarding nature of a career in recruitment. The recognition and appreciation for the efforts I have put in further reaffirm that choosing this path has been well worth it.
I'm excited about what the future holds for me here at HFG and can't wait to take on new challenges that will benefit me in the long run."
