A day in the life of a Talent Manager

Blue Latitude Health | 22nd January 2015

Have you ever wondered what it is like to work at Blue Latitude Health?

We sat down with our talent manager, Priti Breakey, to find out more about what a typical day is like for her.  

What time do you wake up usually?

Too early! Whenever my son decides to wake up, which can be anything from 6am onwards.

What’s your morning routine? 

I get ready for work and head to the nursery, en route to the station. Very boring, no early morning gym sessions for me any more, or breakfast for that matter

How do you get to work?

I take a train into the city and then hop on the tube.

What time do you usually arrive in the office?

Around 9:15am.

What’s the first thing you usually do when you sit at your desk?

Whack on the laptop, reply to any urgent emails, review my to-do list and then make my breakfast.

What’s a typical morning for you?

It varies from day to day, but usually involves a mix of searching for new candidates, addressing any development/induction related issues, organising interviews, conducting telephone screenings and speaking with recruitment agencies.

What music do you listen to whilst working?

The chatter and background noise of the office, otherwise known as 'BLH radio'

Do you work through lunch or go out?

I try to at least head out for a walk in the area, or meet friends if there’s time.

Do you buy lunch daily or bring something in?

Depends on how organised I’ve been the night before. Normally I buy lunch out as there’s such a good choice of food in the area.

What’s the first thing you do after lunch?

Get back to work of course, checking my diary for anything important left to do that day.

What’s a typical afternoon for you?

It’s very similar to the morning, maybe with the addition of re-prioritising tasks to ensure I get through my to-do list.

What are the common challenges you face each day?

Finding top quality candidates to fill our positions.

What time do you typically finish work?

This is easy as I have to rush off at the same time each day, 4:30pm

How do you unwind from a day at work?

Cooking, playing with my son, catching up on some TV.

What are your must-read websites that you visit daily?

LinkedIn of course!
