Meet our Realtimer Dave Rankin! 👋 Dave is our Belfast IT Recruitment consultant.
What do you do in Realtime?
I specialise in Backend Engineering roles.
Can you tell us a fun fact about yourself?
I have played drums in various bands and have toured Scotland. I wanted to be a full-time drummer and live on the road, but my parents would have killed me lol.
Can you describe your career journey so far?
I have been in some sort of sales role for over 15 years from gym memberships, niche retail, double glazing, cars, wind turbine parts and now amazing candidates and companies.
What is the best thing about working at Realtime?
The people! Extremely positive and supportive. Made me feel part of the team before I even had my first day in the office.
What is one piece of career advice you could give?
Don’t be afraid to take a step out of your comfort zone. I have made bold moves in the past and they all taught me great lessons and made me who I am.
How do you prepare for interviews?
Research is key to success. Learn what you can about the role and the company. Make sure match your skillset to what they are looking for in both your CV and during the interview process.
