Up, Close & Personal with William Edwards...
involves engaging with our agencies to ensure they receive the best possible service.
So, how did Will get to where he is now? Having completed his A Levels, Will continued along the academic treadmill, heading straight off to the University of Nottingham. After graduating with a 2:1, he was recruited by Orange Genie and hasn’t looked back since.
Spending his first two years at the company working in the Best Advice team provided the perfect introduction into the industry. Being in constant contact with contractors enabled him to gain a deeper understanding of exactly what contractors are looking for from their Umbrella or Limited Company provider.
Orange Genie Group provide a first class back-office operation, something Will is proud to be associated with. Will is fully aware that agencies see us as a trusted source of knowledge and advice, and for him, the most satisfying part of the role is being able to add value to our agencies by partnering with them, rather than simply acting as a supplier.
Since the age of eight, Will’s Saturday mornings have been spent playing football, something he’s still just as passionate about today. As well as being a keen player on the pitch, he has also tasted success off it, winning the national BBC fantasy football competition in 2004. The prize? – a 5star trip to Brazil. Unfortunately, Will’s team (Leeds) have not enjoyed the same success of late! In his spare time, he tries to travel as much as possible. This past year saw him jet off to Warsaw, Berlin, Croatia and Thailand.
Will looks forward to developing his existing relationships with our agencies, as well as making new and long lasting connections with many more.
