    I worked at Heat Recruitment full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Heat is honestly an incredible place to work. For atmosphere and working environment, it is hard to beat.
    Management truly care about your progression and development and will do everything they can to ensure you are successful in your career with them. They offer advice both inside and outside of work when it is needed and care about your wellbeing.

    Regardless of whether you are a Trainee Consultant or a Senior Consultant in the business, you are treated with respect and trusted as an ambassador for the business.

    I joined at entry level with no experience of the recruitment world. The training I received was both technical and concentrated. It allows you to develop quickly whilst not being left to your own devices. A real positive is that the training is continuous as well. Heat work with highly regarded Industry/Recruitment experts who are always in the office expanding on the bespoke training that is already provided. The training is specific to you and your industry, so it is always beneficial

    The incentives and prizes are impressive to say the least - I have been fortunate enough to qualify for two incentives which are achievable (trainee or not) and have given me memories that I will never forget.
    Whilst Heat have maintained a professional office environment, you will always find yourself laughing with your colleagues. Everyone is up for a laugh and no one is uptight or too serious.

    I would recommend anyone to Heat who is looking to make serious money whilst having fun. They will look after you and invest in you.

    Cons

    I only have one disadvantage which is specific to the recruitment industry and not Heat. The hours are long, just like in any recruitment job. However, if you put in the hours, Heat’s bonus scheme allows you to earn a serious and fair amount of money; both the consultant and Business take a fair percentage of the fees we make

    Advice to Management

    Keep providing the training, mentoring and support to your consultants. It works and they appreciate it.

    Trainee Recruitment COnsultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bristol, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Heat Recruitment (Bristol, England).

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly straightforward. There was an initial telephone screening which lasted for a few minutes until I was asked to come in for a face-to-face interview.

    Firstly I met with one of the Sales Managers for a run through of my CV and to discuss ambitions and goals for the future.

    Usually there would be a second stage on another day but as the other Sales Manager was free at the time I also had a brief chat with him there and then. Again I was asked about reasons for leaving previous jobs, goals for the future, why am I interested in recruitment, what motivates me, etc.

    After this, I was shown the office and taken to another meeting room to complete a task. I was asked to create a script for a sales pitch to try and bring on new business for the company.

    Interview Questions

    • What is your biggest failure?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I didn't negotiate as I didn't have any direct experience for the role. I took the salary that was on offer but after being with the company for just a few months my salary had already increased to above the top indicator on the job advert.
