Ezra Anderson: My Journey so Far
I recently started as a Sales Sourcing Specialist at Capita. It’s all very exciting, starting a new job, and with Capita being such a well-known name globally I was excited to see what I had in store from the moment I applied.

I remember my first telephone interview with Gemma Parry (talent engagement lead at Capita Internal Resourcing). Gemma was so bubbly and full of energy; she definitely motivated me and enhanced my desire to move to the next stage! When you get a good vibe off somebody, it really makes you buy into what they are selling - being in sales myself for over 10 years I’ve learnt to pick up on the sincere people trying to bring something more to the table and I knew that what Gemma was offering was genuine.
On to the interview: I met with Alex Shaw (sales recruiter) and Kate Winton (sourcing delivery manager) at the office in Maidenhead a week later. I left the interview feeling positive; I genuinely felt that they had listened to what I had to say and took on board the potential I could bring to the business. The excitement of working with people that believe in you is unbelievably self-rewarding so I was really looking forward to this prospect. The prospect then became reality as I was offered the role shortly after!
Fast forward to now… it’s the third week in my new role and I feel part of the furniture- in the best way possible! I’ve been welcomed into the Capita family and met some really experienced and long-time serving members in the team. One of the first things I was asked was “How do you have your coffee?” - it’s the simple things that bring teams together and make you feel at home. It is this feeling throughout the recruitment process and into my first few weeks that has made me glad I chose Capita.
Since getting to know the team, witnessing them tapping on their keyboards and speaking passionately to clients, candidates and suppliers brings a smile to my face. Many people reading this might be sceptical…but I guess if you are lucky enough to be working at Capita you would understand - as I type this, I’m smiling.
I am excited about my future here.
