Promoted to Talent Acquisition Partner

Within Hazel's role with Entain, alongside handling the technical hiring for the UK WAVE creatives team, she is also handling the support team, including finance, Salesforce, Workforce and compliance.

"I started working as a Talent Acquisition Associate. But after four months, I was promoted for a Talent Acquisition Partner. So imagine that fast, after four months, I was promoted into a Partner," says Hazel.

Supported by her Entain colleagues

Hazel explains that her sister's mum filed a petition 20 years ago, with the papers coming through in 2018 or 2019. After processing the papers, they went to the US Embassy and the US Consulate, where it was discovered that Hazel's parents could go to the US, whereas Hazel herself was classified as over-aged and so was unable to go.

"I don't have any choice but to stay here, so it's quite hard. I thought living alone is quite fun and exciting, since I can do and go whatever I want. But technically, it's not. Whenever I'm sick, I don't have anyone who's with me. I have to pay my own bills living alone, knowing my responsibilities," says Hazel.

"The good thing is I have my colleagues with me. They're very considerate, and they're very kind," adds Hazel.

Wide range of employee benefits

"Entain has been my second home for quite a long time. We offer good benefits. For example, the HMO, the life insurance, the salary increases that we have, and of course, the annual bonus. So that's the good thing," comments Hazel.

Helping others embark on an Entain career

For Hazel, her favorite part of her job with Entain is onboarding others who are unemployed. Hazel describes an example, she says: "he'd been looking for a job for five to six months, and I was able to onboard him".

Being able to play a purposeful role in her career is highly rewarding for Hazel. "I think that's my favorite part of my job," suggests Hazel .

Hazel shares that in five years time she would love to still be working with Entain.

Outside of work, Hazel has a passion for K-pop that began in 2020 when she was unemployed, as well as being in lockdown during the Covid-19 pandemic. She adds that most of the companies were on freeze hiring, so she had time to explore YouTube during her free time, and found enjoyment for the Korean bands.
