It’s that time again when we say farewell to one of our finest.
Joe has been with RSVP since March 2009 (On and Off) and has been an absolute asset to the company. He’s an all-round champ. After a long enough stint in The City, Joe and his ladyfriend are moving to the country and to new and exciting careers. He will be missed.
Joe left a lovely little note for us upon departure and we want to share it:
For those of you who know me this will be my last week at RSVP. This might sound surprising but I am genuinely going to miss this place. I've been here since 2009 on and off. I’ve made some great friends along the way many who have long since gone and some who are still here.
I’ve had A LOT of rubbish jobs over the years and I'm not saying this is the dream job but it is without a doubt the best Ive had. The managers and staff have treated me like a colleague rather than just another cog. Like many of you I had a dream and a passion that I have chased and thanks to RSVP I have been able to feed and house myself while I did it.
My dreams and goals have changed, nothing to do with the fact I'm 30 and not a Hollywood A lister. I have just recently got a new job out in the country that is going to pay me more money than Ive ever had. I wanted to say a massive thank you to RSVP and everyone who works here, it is because of them and the skills they have given me that I have had job offers left right and centre. I am now able start a new chapter in my life and I am so grateful for this place that when I make that last call I'm going to have to try real hard to not get a bit teary.
I hope you will join me in a farewell drink Friday afternoon at the pub. I love you all (even you Unwin) and wish the company and everyone in it the very best for the future.
How nice is that! Joe had loads of interviews and loads of job offers, he said himself that the experience he got here made him super valuable to all of them! He was beating away offers with a stick!
Eventually, Joe decided on a new job as a Sales Accelerator for a Tech Company. The role entails setting up meetings for sales reps who pitch their products to other industry giants. In his interview, Joe was actually asked to make a real call and actually secured the meeting on his first attempt! They offered him the job there and then! Not surprised.
Joe said that the script he was asked to learn for his interview call was so similar to the ones we use to train new staff that he had no trouble excelling beyond his new employer’s expectations.
Joe will be missed but we are happy that he has moved on up and is setting off on his next adventure.
