A Fitting New Role for a Fantastic IT Professional: Evangelos’ Story
Posted on: 27 Nov 2018
Evangelos Gargoulakis recently moved to the UK from Greece to be with his partner. His relocation meant he was in the market for a new job in IT.
With a passion for computer science, Evangelos graduated with a bachelor’s degree in telematics from Harokopio University in Athens.
Since then he has worked as a software tester at Intrasoft International, a European IT Solutions company that has over 500 organisations worldwide.
He also worked on the framework of the Erasmus+ program in Amsterdam (created by the European Union to increase opportunities in education, training, youth and sport).
Since one of our specialities is digital and tech recruitment, Evangelos decided to get support from the Adam team in helping him find a new software tester position.
Our mission was to help Evangelos land a fulfilling role for a brilliant company. To help him develop his career and build a wonderful life in his new home.
This is what Evangelos had to say about his experience working with Adam.
Evangelos’ Ideal Role
“I was looking for a software testing position after really enjoying my previous responsibilities at Intrasoft International. I also wanted a role that simultaneously allowed me to improve my skills while helping the company develop.
“I feel happiest when I’m working with a close-knit team full of friendly and kind people – one that makes you feel comfortable from day one. I was keen to find a company that offered this type of environment and culture.”
Specialist Support from Consultant Sam
“I felt very confident that We Are Adam would make the job hunting process easy and enjoyable. That’s because Sam, a recruitment consultant at Adam who specialises in IT and tech-based roles, put me at ease and was amazing to work with from the moment we met.
“Sam really took the time to get to know me. He listened carefully to my individual needs and aspirations for the future. His approach meant he was able to find a company and role that suited me perfectly.
“The interview was arranged quickly and Sam helped me prepare. He offered insights into the company and lots of useful tips to help me make a great impression. He was always there for any extra questions about the interview process and this gave me the confidence I needed to do my best on the big day.
“Thanks to the support I received from Sam and the Adam team, I landed my dream job in around three weeks!”
“My new role is exactly what I wanted. I have lots of autonomy and a very strong team to work with – collaborating on projects is fun and seamless. My responsibilities vary and I am always given the opportunity to learn and improve. All of these great aspects allow me to do my job confidently and happily.
“The best thing about my experience working with Adam was the interview itself. Putting it simply, when I saw the company and met my future colleagues, I knew I would be very happy working there. It was a great feeling.
“I would absolutely work with Adam again either for myself or for my team. Not only did I receive amazing support but I found a new friend in Sam.”
