Featured Review

Current Employee - Recruiting Manager

I have been working at Hays full-time

Pros

Meritocratic culture, outstanding training and development at all levels, respected brand, multi-specialism recruitment business, supported by excellent IT systems. Clear career path for capable,... goal orientated people.

Cons

Previously there was a lack of flexibility around working location. This has recently changed with the introduction of a hybrid working policy to allow for home working.

Advice to Management

Continue to invest in staff development, growing headcount and IT systems!
