How are senior leaders perceived at JAM Recruitment?

Pros

I'm sure there is any

Cons

A company surviving on previous success, but the wheels are quickly falling off. It’s quite sad to see as I had many great years at JAM and met lots of good people. The problem is the CEO – he has a hugely elevated opinion of himself and the worth he brings to the business, he spends most of his time playing golf, fishing or attending fictitious business meetings in the States, marching around in printed t-shirts and garish trainers more akin to an 18 year old in Ibiza than a middle aged professional. Over the years, JAM have had huge success working way above their station with some of the world’s biggest organisations. Slowly but surely, they have managed to lose all of these customers and now rely on a 1-2 accounts that feed 90% of their revenue streams. Business development is non-existent and no new customers have been won in years. The management team ran out of ideas years ago and resorted to intimidation as their preferred method of motivation. Some great people there but would avoid this company regardless of your experience in recruitment.

Advice to Management

Roll up your sleeves and help out. You're also responsible for the sales performance, the book shouldn't always stop at the consultants. Stop hiding behind you're job title and pick up the phone.

Does JAM Recruitment have any sort of mentoring programme?

Pros

Everyone in the business is hands on and functioning as a strong team which has meant big client wins and achieving the best results we have seen in years. Always had training opportunities and if the business hasn’t been able to provide internally then it has outsourced to provide extra support. Latest tech is available to support remote working and you’re trusted to deliver when working from home. Been through some much-needed change over the last few years which is paying off and giving great results for everyone individually and the company as a whole. 3PM Friday finish, on track for a company holiday this year & flexible working is also a massive benefit.

Cons

Has been hard work over the last few years however now we’re out the other side its all been worth it

Advice to Management

Trust the process and keep going on this path as its working

Does there seem to be diversity at JAM Recruitment?

Pros

Friday early finish (3pm)

Cons

Senior Leadership and management teams are very reluctant to act upon reports of bullying & harassment of staff by other colleagues due to favoritism and a lack of effective internal HR processes.

Advice to Management

You're more likely to retain staff and attract strong candidates if you stop backing the toxic staff and instead act in the best interest of the staff that deserve to be supported.
