We've got some new recruits...

5f9ce8b1 b054 49d0 8710 6a8aaa9767c5


Since we last met, Venatrix has gained two new Talent Executives (which is extremely exciting and brings the team to a headcount of 11!)  

Emily Hamblyn joined us 4 weeks ago and Felix Harper joined us 3 days ago! They have both joined Saskia Williams’ team - we can’t wait to watch them grow from strength to strength!  

In true newbie, no pressure style, we sat them down and asked them a couple of ice breaker questions… 


What made you want to join Venatrix? 

EH: The incredible team, progression structure and industry presence 

FH:  Seeing the amazing presence you have on social media and the sense of togetherness within the team. 


Coffee or tea? Milk first or last? 

EH: Coffee- black one sugar 

FH: Tea unless I'm too tired to function. Milk in last! ...I can't believe anyone does it the other way round.  


What book or movie have you recently read/seen and why would you recommend it? 

EH: 101 Essays that will change the way you think. I loved this book because it really makes me think in a different way, it has short essays for every type of topic life throws at you! 

FH: I recently read The Stranger by Albert Camus. I'd recommend all his stuff due to his writing style and use of stories as allegories/metaphors. 


What’s something you’re planning on doing in the next year that you’ve never done? 

EH: Next year I plan on running a half marathon- yikes! 

FH: I am planning on doing a tough mudder for the Mind mental health charity.  


What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given?

EH: Fake it until you make it 

FH: Try and learn something new every day. 


What three items would you bring on a desert island? 

EH: A pillow (all about comfort), suncream and Marmite obviously!! 

FH: A boat, a paddle and a map.  


Both Emily and Felix are now hiring for SDR roles - so do not hesitate to get in touch and chat with them about life at Venatrix and finding the perfect role for you!
