Aaron comes home to take up role at town recruitment company
Vanilla Recruitment is expanding with the arrival of Aaron Buffery.
Vanilla recruit across Northamptonshire and Leicestershire and their new signing Aaron is local to Market Harborough.
He has been enduring a lengthy commute to work for the past six years, travelling to both Derby and London, most recently to work for a Top 100 recruitment firm.
With his eldest child having started school in Harborough in September, he was looking for a better work/life balance to help support his young family.
Aaron commented that “Joining the team at Vanilla is a great opportunity for me. I’d always thought that working in recruitment would mean I’d have to get used to long commutes and missing out on everyday things like doing the school run."
"Being in the town for work has already changed so many aspects of my life. I know that sounds like a big claim but it really has. I can now walk to work, drop my son off at school and help my wife with the children’s bedtime routine. We’re all so much happier.”
Aaron’s role at Vanilla will call upon all his previous experience working with senior level candidates across accountancy and finance. He will be specialising in industry and practice roles for part and fully qualified accountants.
Vanilla’s managing director Eloise Shelton, said “It’s great to have Aaron on board. He brings a wealth of experience and passion for recruitment with him. And to be able to attract someone like Aaron is testament to how people focussed we are at Vanilla. We put a lot of effort into our employee engagement and we support our team to help them achieve a healthy work/life balance. Having happy people within the company is really important to me and being a mum of two young children myself, I understand how much simpler life can be when you work close to home.”
Aaron joins a very established team at Vanilla who recruit across; sales, marketing, general office, legal, HR and accountancy and finance. They work with both permanent and temporary jobs across the East Midlands.
