"Recruitment"3 Jan 2020

Former Employee - Recruitment Partner

I worked at Hays full-time for more than a year

Pros

Good Management, great clients, good brand

Cons

No working from home, Progression not great

Current Employee - Business Process Manager

I have been working at Pulse (UK) part-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Having worked for Pulse myself for nearly 15 years, it is clear that there is encouragement to develop our own management internally, instead of employing managers from outside the business, which... gives us a key USP against competitors. Career development is so important and the pathway is visible from day one. There are a number of benefits including good basic annual leave, opportunity to buy/sell holiday, online discounts portal, health insurance to cover you/partner/family, as well as a pension scheme. Pulse is also invested in giving something back, so there are regular charity events and functions happening throughout the year, which the majority of people get involved in. I have and will continue to recommend anyone to work here, whether you want a career in recruitment, admin, HR, marketing, finance. The opportunities are endless!

Cons

Parking onsite at our office is a bit of a nightmare!

Advice to Management

Continue getting feedback from all employees and implementing/embracing change. This is something we do really well!
