In a very short period of time we visited Abbatt Property in High Holborn three times. Twice for corporate headshots and then for an interview video. Many years ago (over 11 to be precise) I had a career in recruitment. However, it was nothing like Abbatt! They are the friendliest bunch of recruitment consultants that I have met. There is a real supportive team atmosphere and everyone seems to get on so well. From the receptionist to the MD they are all incredibly proud of working for a company with a great reputation in a niche market placing concierge’s into come of London’s best buildings.
Headshots for Recruitment Consultants
To match their branding we chose a white (high key) background for their corporate headshots. As you can see from the behind the scenes image we set up the background and lights in the reception area. This meant that the consultants were away from their desks for minimal time. With lots of meetings going on we also juggled the list to ensure that everyone not only had their business portrait taken but also made all their meetings.
As an ex-recruitment consultant I know from personal experience that the perception of consultants isn’t the most professional. I would be the first to admit that in the past it was quite often very justified. Images of super slick people with double cuff shirts, bell ringing to reward success and boiler room environments spring to mind. However the industry is changing and companies like Abbatts Property Services are leading the way. They are now more professional and recognise that their key strength comes from the knowledge of their consultants. Professional corporate headshots can really help to convey that professionalism and are a long way from the selfie or drunken night out LinkedIn Profile photos.
