Here at Protocol, we know all about the importance of good people, we pride ourselves in ‘placing people first’ and have been doing so for 25 years now!
Our business is full of great people, and you may only interact with one or two in your work with us, but there is a whole army of support in the background from IT to Marketing and Compliance to Recruitment Consultants. We thought it was important for you to find out a bit more about the people that make up #TeamProtocol. In this series, you will find out a bit about the person behind the screen, or at the end of the phone.
To continue the Protocol Spotlight series, we would like to introduce you to Charlotte Maltby, Recruitment Consultant. Charlotte has been part of the Protocol Family for almost 3 years, and is based at Head Office in Nottingham. Here’s what we found out about Charlotte:
- What car do you drive?
A Citroen C1 that is about to fall to pieces.
- What is your favourite food?
It’s got to be a Kebab. I absolutely love them!
- What is your favourite drink?
Has to be wine, although I do like a beer if the sun’s out.
- What is your favourite film, book or TV show?
I don’t really have any favourite TV shows or films. There are so many to choose from and I can be extremely indecisive. As for books, I cant really say I’m a big reader.
- What is your dream holiday destination?
I have always wanted to go to Venice. But realistically, I would love to just have a few days away in the countryside with some nice walks and village pubs.
- Do you have any hobbies?
Riding and looking after my horses is pretty much a full time occupation!
- Tell us a fun fact about yourself.
Someone can tell me their name and within 0.2 seconds I will have already forgotten what it was – me and names just aren’t a great match.
- What sports teams do you follow?
Have never been big into following any sports teams. I will occasionally watch the Eventing if its on, but only the Cross Country.
- Do you have any hidden talents?
Before working at Protocol I used to ride other peoples ‘problem horses’. I think my stickability in the saddle is second to none.
- What’s your dream car?
I’ve always wanted a Land Rover Defender. One of the really old ones with the army benches in the back.
- What was your dream job as a child?
I wanted to be a Vet. But as I got older and worked alongside one, I decided it wasn’t for me.
- What’s your favourite song, band or artist?
I like pretty much all music, anything from Oasis to Eminem.
- What one skill or talent would you love to be able to master?
Being able to remember peoples names would be really useful.
- What’s your favourite time of year?
I love the Autumn. Fresh mornings and cosy jumpers.
- If you could time travel, what year would you go back, or forward to and why?
I’d want to go forward. To the point the Lockdown restrictions are lifted so I can get on with life!
- Do you have any pets?
Oh yes – I have a dog, two horses, eight sheep and two farm cats that we very rarely see. My next animal venture will be chickens!
- And finally, why do you love working at Protocol?
It’s got to be the people, the fast paced work and the variety the role gives.
