What are some insights into the strategy or vision at Certus Recruitment Group?

Pros

- The people within this business are fantastic, definitely the best place I have worked in terms of the culture, we work hard but also know how to have fun - Progression opportunities, I think if you get your head down and show that you care, this company is one that will really look to develop you and your skill set - Senior management, the sales director in particular is very approachable and you learn a lot from the senior management team

Cons

- No microwave, every company has one so is a bit of a frustration - Can sometimes be a bit micro management and focus a bit too much on getting on the phone when results can be achieved in other forms

Why do Certus Recruitment Group employees quit?

Pros

Team mates and team leaders are some of the best people you could work with.

Cons

Certus teach you to view candidates as a commodity. Typical activity for activity sake culture. Their clients don’t like them because of their horrible pushy sales tactics. The company is run constantly on the brink of bankruptcy. My final pay (4 weeks notice) was £0 because they decided to deduct my comms from a previous month, leaving me in financial difficulty. This was despite me being one of their top billers for a year.

Advice to Management

Let your team leaders take over. The best consultancies have modernised with times, trusting and empowering their employees. Stop being such a ruthless “typical” recruitment firm. End things on good terms with people that are still friends with your employees
