Danny Tourh of FTS Recruitment wins Intec Rising Star Award

Danny Tourh, FTS Recruitment

Intec Rising Star 2018

Recruitment Resourcing Level 2

Confident Danny Tourh is a keen sports-man and has always been competitive so it’s no surprise he is excelling in a fast-paced, target- driven role as a Recruitment Resourcer. It’s not only his stand-out performance and ability to meet targets that makes him a worthy winner for a Rising Star Award but also his hard-working and diligent attitude to any task that’s put in front of him.

Recruited by Intec’s Kerrie-Ann Boss, Danny joined the FTS Recruitment Team, who specialise in placing Construction Professionals, just 5 months ago. ‘It was my motivation to earn money that pushed me towards an Apprenticeship as I have always been independent and an Apprenticeship allows me to earn while I learn.’ Danny has come a long way in the short time he’s been at FTS, ‘he is committed and dedicated individual who works to achieve to the best of his ability first time round, rather than submit something which will not meet the criteria’, says his Tutor/Assessor Alice Gray.  

FTS Recruitment’s Managing Director, Jared, is particularly pleased with his progress. ‘When I decided to try an Apprenticeship scheme to complement our usual method of recruiting new team members, I expected to hire someone who would perform only junior office duties initially (the metaphorical faxing and photocopying) but it soon became apparent that Danny had so much more to offer than this. Making calls to people you don’t know, about a subject that you know little about and in front of colleagues you have only recently met is a daunting prospect even for experienced people, yet Danny threw himself into it bravely. Whilst he is an extremely confident and self-assured young man, he is also very respectful and professional, holding his own on the phone to candidates that manage multi-million pound construction projects. If all Apprentices are like Danny, I will hire an Army of them...!’  

Danny is consistently reaching his KPI’s each week and has integrated into the FTS team well. He has learnt to deal with challenging customers, creates rapport with candidates and has increased his knowledge of   the industry really well. He has also developed his time management skills, planning out his time effectively both in his personal and professional life; ‘In recruitment a major challenge is time management, as you have to allow for late notice for things.’ Alongside his full time role as a Recruitment Resourcer, hard-working Danny is balancing his assignments, playing semi-pro football and selling designer merchandise online.  

Danny clearly has a very bright future ahead of him, proving if you work hard anything is possible. Well done Danny!
