A day in the life of – Dana Humphreys

Dana is a Recruitment Consultant based at our Chesterfield office and has been with the company almost 2  years. Dana, AKA ‘Big D’ (she’s tiny) loves to be the centre of attention and is often found either making everyone laugh, or stuffing her face with whatever food everyone else has. She averages 7 dates a week, with a 100% record of never seeing them again…

Dana sets her alarm for 6.45am but actually snoozes it until 7am. When she finally finds the willpower to get out of bed, she rushes to get her hair and makeup done. Dana is all about the natural look life!

She rushes downstairs and grabs her dinner out of the fridge. Dana lives an easy life, still at 21 years old her Mum makes her dinner for her everyday…

After various drinks, snacks and scrolls on Instagram, Dana checks the time and it’s  now 7.35am. Dana puts on her size 3 shoes and sets off to work with the usual Beyoncé or Ariana Grande playlist on… singing her heart out to ‘Thank U, Next’ on repeat! It’s all too relevant after the date she went on the night before…

Dana arrives into the office out of breath from the 12 yards she walked from the car to the office door. Dana is allergic to physical activity. She has the usual ‘what did you get up to last night’ chat with the team. Dana tells the team of her date, and after describing him the team soon realise he fits the ‘Humphrey Mould’ – Good Job, drives a Merc / Jaguar, and is above the age of 25… once the date chat has ended, they all have a brew so they are set for the day ahead!

Dana will give her clients a call to check all her “Huns” have arrived on time. Once she gets the all clear from her clients, she begins to plan her busy day ahead. This normally begins with trying to fill tonight’s night shift, so they ring through the available’s list and the temps they have ready and inducted. When someone has finally answered, Dana does a little victory jig and eats a celebratory yoghurt / chocolate bar / sausage roll – Dana’s snack draw runs deep…

Megan and Dana decide to go on a little trip visiting clients with a few of Essential’s goodies… After door knocking a few local companies they have received a few bookings which they are buzzing about! They both head back to the office but not before picking up a tactical Maccies… Dana is partial to a Chicken Legend or two. When back at the office both of them inform the team of the new business and begin the long search for suitable candidates to send over to the client. Dana will put the kettle on and have another brew. After the team has rang through some of the applications they’ve received for their positions, they find the golden candidate and put him forward! Weekly work emails get sent and Dana sends her clients updated spreadsheets so they are aware what staff they have in for the following week.

It gets to 5pm and Dana has had a great productive day but she is glad it’s home time. Dana’s night is as busy as her day, she has 3 dates planned, she’s going for dinner with her Dad and is going to have her hair extensions put in. She rushes home even though she seemingly cannot drive above 13mph…

She then gets ready for her dates, meals and appointments which is a big thing as she NEVER wants to go (but accepts them anyway?!) She arrives at the date, spends 15 minutes there only to realise he drives a Ford Fiesta not the Merc promised, so heads home to the one person who’ll never let her down…  Her dog (Kia). She sets her alarm for 6.45am and off to bed she goes.
