His passion and ambition extends well beyond just his role. Aleix is a dedicated contributor to the broader Hudson RPO culture by initiating the Hudson RPO Film Club, being a dependable support on key client accounts, and actively mentoring and training new recruits in the Hudson RPO academy as they navigate the ever-evolving landscape of top recruitment solutions.

Partnering with clients and colleagues

“I was so proud to see our last Academy graduate. It was incredible to see them grow and develop into the highly specialised recruitment experts they are today. At the same time, we learn from their transferable skills from a wide range of industries and levels of experience. I hope I have been able to be a small part of this tremendous journey for them. I hope to continue to be involved in the Hudson RPO Academy!”

Joining Hudson RPO

The Edinburgh Centre of Excellence serves as a hub for sourcing top-tier talent from across the EMEA region and beyond. To achieve this, we foster a culture of constant learning and continuous improvement. Regardless of client, industry, seniority, or level of experience, our team members learn from and support one another in their development, striving to provide the best possible service to our clients. Our obsession with quality enables us to provide a high level of specialised, best-in-class talent to our clients. Aleix shares what it was like coming on board:

“The past 7 months have been a whirlwind and time has flown by. From the moment I stepped into the office, I felt welcomed and at home. In such a short period of time, I have built strong connections and friendships with my colleagues that I now see outside of work. Social outings like going to an escape room or seeing movies together has become a regular occurence.”

The Hudson RPO Film Club

The social interactions outside of the office was the impetus that inspired Aleix to start the Hudson RPO Film Club. When he first joined the team, he discovered the existing book club and saw an opportunity to create a similar community around films. Starting with a small group of members in the EMEA office, the club has since grown into an international community of film enthusiasts, with its own dedicated channel for recommending and discussing the latest must-see movies. Aleix has inspired his colleagues to start their own clubs too, and the office now has a book club, film club and cooking club. It’s people-led initiatives like these, that are foundational to the unique culture experienced by our teams at Hudson RPO.

“The Hudson RPO Film Club is open to all and an opportunity for team members to come together, connect and engage in discussions and ratings of films. The club serves as a relaxed and pressure-free environment, where team members can get to know one another better. I am happy that I was encouraged to take an initiative like this, even though I had only just joined the company!”

Aleix’s advice for new starters

At Hudson RPO, we are fortunate to have someone as talented and dedicated as Aleix on our team. His involvement in the day-to-day operations and in mentoring new hires is invaluable. As a seasoned member of the Academy team, Aleix has valuable insights to share with anyone considering joining Hudson RPO. He advises:

“Be open to learning, get involved, and don't be afraid to ask questions. Take advantage of all the training and mentoring opportunities offered and set goals for yourself – the sky is the limit! Most importantly, stay positive and be open to new opportunities and experiences. Hudson RPO is a great place to work and grow, and I am confident that you will find it as rewarding as I have," shares Aleix.
