Here at MVF we are getting pretty used to welcoming new faces. With a bold aim to employ 100 new recruits in 100 days, each Monday seems to bring a new person to greet at the coffee machine and a new name to learn.
To make sure everyone knows who has joined, and to give everyone a good laugh, MVF hold monthly ‘New Starter Drinks’, where new recruits are introduced to the team, and have to provide a funny fact about themselves as an ice breaker.
Last Friday’s drinks were the largest to date, with a total of 16 new starters. Some interesting facts we learned this time around included one of our team appearing in three Harry Potter films, one who had a previous career as a professional ballerina, and one who speaks five languages – what a talented bunch!
All proceedings were overseen by MVF’s social committee, social team member Ed Beardsell said: “We brought in the new starter drinks as it is a great way to make sure everyone gets to know each other across all departments and all floors. Plus the ‘fun fact’ section always throws up some pretty interesting things about people, so it’s a great conversation starter! I think previously we have had an MVF member who cycled from Argentina to USA, and one person whose great-great-grandfather invented the top hat!”
With more new jobs listed on our careers section, it could be you next!
