    Supportive leadership team who recognise passion amongst it's employees with exciting opportunities for those that do.

    UK Management Role (Current Employee) London, England

    ProsI started working for Kelly in 2003 in a role that was created for me based on my talent and experience. I've experienced development, significant promotion, reward & recognition since then. The best asset that Kelly have are it's people. The support people are willing to give no matter how busy they are is amazing. Sadly, I was TUPE'd from Kelly in 2009 but when I was presented with an opportunity to come back I jumped at the chance.

    ConsThough it is a global company we are quite a small unit in the UK in comparison which has limited the speed in which others can be promoted within. It does also mean that you have to wear lots of different hats to get the job done. Good experience gained as a result though.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDue to low headcount resource many individuals are working long hours to get the job done which makes the company less desirable to stay with.

    Kelly has come a long way, we're different now, we're strong, we're not afraid to listen and to change.

    Management (Current Employee) Manchester, England

    ProsKelly is passionate about delivering excellence and everyone who works for the organisation is clear on this mission. Leadership at Kelly is transparent, accessible, open and encouraging. Talent and contribution is appropriately recognized and individual development taken seriously. A warm and honest employer, working for Kelly is recommended to anyone who wants to learn from the best, work with the best, and be their best.

    ConsEvery business needs improvements but I firmly endorse that Kelly is an organisation that listens - to its employees, its clients and the market, in order to change and grow in the right way. Everyone at Kelly can own this continual improvement, it's what makes us different.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMonitoring of same/similar positions within the industry is key to ensuring the best possible talent is attracted and maintained. Compensation and Benefits should be reviewed regularly to achieve competitive advantage for all employees.
