Featured Review

Current Employee - Learning Delivery Manager

I have been working at Harrods full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

You feel part of a family and are proud to work for such a great work place. Our five employee values fit perfectly with our brand and living them in all we do feels natural and something you do... without even thinking about. I just hope they will let me continue working after retirement age!

Cons

There is not a single thing I’d want to change, if someone asked me to create my own job role in the perfect place, I would create what I have now. I’m always grateful for that, and still have to... pinch myself to think I work in Harrods. I don’t think I’ll ever except it!

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you’re doing, continue living our values so we can work together as a team and deliver The Art of the Possible 👍🏻

Current Employee - Senior Business Manager

I have been working at Hays full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

First class technology to support you doing your job and excellent progression for staff - either those of us who join as experienced recruiters or trainees.

Cons

As we are based in Scotland we haven't been able to work in the office since March 2020 - while I appreciate this isn't unique to Hays! And actually likely a pro to many people as some organisations... may be making employees go to an office when they aren't comfortable with protection measures in place; but personally I would like to have the option to return as soon as possible.
