I have been working at NRG full-time

Pros

* Some really good contracts/relationships with other organisations * As an employee you are supported and encouraged to develop * Colleagues are great * With NRG being a smaller business, any... feedback and suggestions are listened to *Continuously investing in new technology for consultants

Cons

* Can be high-pressure but as are most recruitment jobs * Dining/ Break facilities could be improved
