  • Joined: 2010
  • University: Sheffield University
  • Degree: LLB Law

Description:

I joined as La Fosse Associates’ first graduate in 2010. What really appealed to me was the chance to develop and progress in an exciting, high-performing company. Within a year, I had been promoted, started my own desk, and began building a high-performing team. By 2015, my practice was the most profitable team in the business. Working for a fast-growing company has provided me with a range of career development opportunities, and today, I am an Associate Director, heading up the contracts division.

  • Degree: BA English Literature

Description:

I joined La Fosse because they are an ambitious company with a strong sense of culture and values. These principles shine through in our learning and development programme, which is designed to align with the fast-paced environment. The training provided has been essential to my career progression so far.

What is really unique about our approach, is that the training at La Fosse goes beyond just the Learning and Development team. I have access to every employee, at every level, across the entire company, from consultants to the CEO.

  • Name: Ryan Patel
  • Role: Consultant – Permanent Recruitment
  • Joined: 2014
  • University: City University London
  • Degree: BSc Computer Science

Description:

I have been working at La Fosse for 15 months, and was promoted in just over a year. While I believe there are a number of factors that supported my rapid promotion, I think one of the most important is that I am held accountable for my actions. La Fosse focuses on behaviours and attitude. Rather than measuring success through pre-set KPI’s, it’s about how you approach your role on a daily basis. The autonomy and accountability has allowed me to develop a tailored approach to every situation, creating a personal brand that separates myself from the rest of the market.
