At Athona, we’re extremely fortunate to have 50% of employees who have worked at Athona for more than 5 years. Of these employees, 8 are celebrating their 10-year anniversary in 2024 and so to recognise this achievement, we spoke to each one of them to see what they had to say about the last 10 years and their career at Athona!

Amy Hart – Business Manager for Psychiatry

“I can’t quite believe how quick the last 10 years have gone! Athona has supported me in both my professional and personal journeys and has allowed me to work my way up from Recruitment Consultant to Business Manager, all whilst becoming a first time Mum. It has been a pleasure to work within such a long-standing team and be surrounded by likeminded individuals always looking to strive for more. I look forward to seeing what the next 10 years will hold”.

Beth Carroll – Compliance Manager for Healthcare

“My personal milestone I’ve had within my 10 years working at Athona would be being promoted to the Compliance Manager in February 2023. I believe I am only as successful as my team and it’s my job to get the best out of everyone. A personal favourite quote of mine that supports this is: “If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself” – Henry Ford.

Charlie De’Ath – Senior Executive Recruitment Consultant for Acute

“Since starting Athona I began as a Sales Resourcer and worked my way up to Senior Exec RC and also took place in a Team Leader course that was run in that time”.

Geri Chapman – Compliance Manager for Education

“10 years has flown by so fast, I have truly enjoyed being part of a great team who all work hard and support each other. Personally I take pride in our fantastic audit results as well as our ethical work practices which is reflected in our long lasting relationships with clients and candidates”.

Janeth Soluta – Team Leader for Nursing

“I’m so proud of reaching my 10 year anniversary here at Athona. It was the opportunity I was given to grow and progress within my career that gives me the motivation to love my job. Being a recruitment consultant is not an easy job if you haven’t got much experience, but the company invested in guiding us with training to equip our knowledge and scenarios in day to day situations. The ethics and values of the company makes you feel safe and secure working here. The company also give incentives to motivate individuals. Now, I am working as a Team Leader for Nursing and I’m looking forward to the future to being able to build our nursing division with great pride”.

Kerry Sheehan – Marketing Manager

“What started out as a three-month temporary job, I never would have believed that 10 years later I would be where I am today. Over the last decade Athona has given me incredible career opportunities, and also allowed me to thrive in my personal life. Professionally, I’ve been lucky enough to receive multiple promotions and also the privilege to manage and support a team and help them to achieve success in their own careers. But one of the main reasons I have enjoyed the last decade so much is the people. It may sound cliché, but I truly have formed some incredible friendships during my time at Athona and that is something I will always be thankful to Athona for”.

Luke Shotter – Senior Business Development Manager

“Working in an environment where people want you to succeed, and for a company that allows that to happen is a big part of the reason I have stayed here for a decade and having been promoted a numbers of times during my time at Athona is testament to that. The role itself is also one that allows me to see all aspects of the business and ensures that every day is different. I love working directly with our clients, getting out to visit them face to face and building long lasting relationships, as well as working closely with all of the teams internally to help us grow as a business. I can also say that I have made friends for life in this role, both internally and externally”.

Nicola Scrivener – Senior Support Manager for Education

“It’s always been important for me to work for a company that is ethical and professional. Over the years I have mentored apprentices and resourcer’s that have gone on to become successful consultants. The team are brilliant and really supportive. I feel part of the company, your opinion matters here and hard work is always rewarded”.
