Glowing Potentials new recruit – dedicated & responsible

As a military spouse herself, Emily recognises the skills many have that are frequently overlooked or ignored by recruiters. When a role came up in her company, Glowing Potential, she contacted RFS to see how we could help.

What was your recruitment issue?

It was my first hire and I was having issues finding a committed administrative assistant. As it’s a role where people can have a variety of backgrounds (HR, bookkeeping, customer service, etc.) it was difficult to know what exactly to look for. I was also tentative because a previous hire, not through RFS, which had taken several weeks of training time out of my schedule, hadn’t worked out.

Why did you approach Recruit for Spouses?

I needed help screening and selecting appropriate candidates. I also felt drawn to what RFS stands for – as a military spouse myself I see how important these services are.

How did Recruit for Spouses help you?

They helped me free up important time to work on my business by finding me a fantastic, dedicated, kind and communicative administrative assistant.

What do you see as the benefits of hiring a military spouses or veterans?

Well, being a military spouse myself, I am a bit biased, but I think supporting those who often forgo some luxuries in day-to-day family and work life to support someone serving their country is important. As for the direct benefits, my administrative assistant is a communicative and responsible remote-worker who I feel is dedicated to the role and invested in our success. So, in summary: supporting a cause bigger than yourself, employees with dedication to their role and communicative remote workers.

RFS was...a platform for spouses who understood my struggles and my challenges. It felt like I came to them in pieces, deflated and very defeated and they (RFS) pieced me back together.

The competency amongst the military spouse community is unbelievably good and the fact all our candidates were happy with remote working made this ideal for us as a small business.

I found the course to be an excellent refresher of the skills I used in my previous roles, and also a confidence booster to me, proving that I can do it again
