The End of My Placement Year – Joe Burke

June 14, 2019

It’s almost the end of my placement year with Anson McCade and I am really sad at the thought of leaving!

It has been really fun, and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a placement year. I have learnt how to effectively manage my time, built a strong network of professionals in the IT industry and even got the chance to engage in some business development at a young age! I don’t think there is an opportunity to learn so much and obtain so much responsibility on your placement year anywhere else.

The working environment is great too, I often stop for a game of FIFA on my lunch break or pop out to a trendy spot in Shoreditch for a bit of lunch. Everyone is cheerful and extremely knowledgeable and I have made some great friends. We always have music in the office as well which is a nice touch.

Highlights include the office parties and the odd day when we have a dog in the office! There was also a particular candidate who I was able to take through the entire process within 4 days and double her yearly income, she was extremely happy and we still remain in regular contact.

If I were to give tips to a student beginning their time with Anson McCade, I would say the following:

  • It’s all about relationship-building, get on the phones as much as possible and make friends with the people on the other end
  • Organisation is fundamental to your success. Keep lists, create folders and set reminders.
  • Draw on the expertise of those around you. You would be surprised to know just how much your colleagues know and are willing to help out.
  • Do your homework. There are so many resources online which will assist you with your work and you would be silly not to use them. They are free and will end up making you money.
  • Don’t be scared. You will find that those who make the call that you didn’t will reap the rewards. Try to be bold and ask the difficult questions and always look to be doing a bit of business development.


At the end of the day if you are looking for a job in recruitment, there isn’t a better company. Uncapped commission, freedom to work on whatever roles suit you best, a great office environment/location and the liveliest bunch of colleagues in the city.
