About me….

About me….
Hello – My name is Corey Hicks, first of all let me tell you a bit about me! My hobbies; firstly gym and fitness and playing football. I aim to go gym at least 4-5 times a week and have been playing football since I was 7 years old. I graduated Southampton Solent University with a 2:1 in Sports Development/ Football studies. Which is one of my proudest achievements to date. I spent 3 great years at uni studying something I enjoy.
And now I start a new chapter in my life with Merit. Recruitment is a new industry to me, I’m entering it with no prior experience in recruitment whatsoever. I’m eager to hit the ground running with everyday being a new learning experience. But with the help of my experienced colleagues and support from my friends and family I know I will be very successful with Merit.

What did you want to be before the age of 10 and why?
Before the age of 10 I was most happy with a ball at my feet due to my passion for playing football. Like most young boys my age all I was concerned about was playing football and watching TV. Before the age of 10 like most kids I really wanted to be a Power Ranger but realising that dream wasn’t going to happen I settled for something a bit more realistic which was to be a mechanic. This was because my uncle was a mechanic and he was someone I looked up to and I wanted to be just like him.
What do you want to be by the age of 35?
Thankfully being 21 I’ve got a few years to play with before I’m 35. But by the time I’m 35 I would like to be at the very top of this industry and hope to be very successful. Until then I just have to keep working hard and learning from my colleagues on a daily basis.

You are on a desert island: you can take 3 books to read which ones will you pick?
To be honest I’m not really one for reading unless it was for my studies. But if I had to pick 3 books that would keep me interested and entertained I would say the Lord of The Rings Trilogy, because I love an adventure story and something that catches my imagination.

The 3 minute elevator challenge: You’re in an elevator with the Prime Minister and you have 3 minutes, how do you convince him that Merit Group will solve their talent challenge?
The Merit team is full of determined and dedicate industry professionals. They never shy away from a challenge they meet it head on and give 110% in all aspects of their work. As individuals and as a team every single person at Merit has all the qualities needed to be successful and to make the company a success.
Another quality that makes Merit so successful and different to its competitors is its relationship with its clients and candidates. Both the clients and candidates get a dedicated and personal service that takes into account both their needs, this in turn builds a strong connection with everyone Merit associates itself with.
