Morgan McKinley – Why Work For Us?


Healthy Working Environment
We respect the work-life balance of our people while recognising that team spirit and a healthy working environment makes people good friends as well as colleagues. Our annual well-being week sees the global teams partake in 5 well-being focussed days with giveaways to win, healthy treats to enjoy, and external speakers / health professionals in our offices to give tips on living a healthier lifestyle!

Our Internal Events 
All of our offices organise a variety of internal events throughout the year, and not a month goes by without one. For example, a regular end-of-quarter social event, Homegrown Talent Days, barbecue nights and the Tag Rugby Leagues (recruitment consultants are competitive by nature; you need to let off some steam now and again!)

Community / Charity
We all know the importance of putting back into the community that we live and work in. That’s why at every office we have around the world we all take the time to raise money and sponsor charities to help reshape our community.
At the start of 2016 we set ourselves a new goal: to enhance our CSR efforts across our global business. Our challenge as an organisation is to contribute the equivalent of a million euros to charities and worthy causes across the Morgan McKinley global footprint of offices by the end of 2018. We call it the Morgan McKinley Million.
 
In short it is about harnessing the collective goodwill and team spirit of our 800 people to do more by going beyond to improve the lives of others. In order for us to do this we have to push ourselves well beyond what we have done in the past.To put into context, this will be at least 10 times more than we have done in the last 3 years! So we organised teams in every country: Ireland, UK, France, China, India, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore and Australia to really start planning, and on the 5th July 2016 we launched the initiative across our Global business.
 
From the UK to Australia and Tokyo to Singapore, we all participate in a range of events and fundraisers, and you can be a part of it too! We’ve partnered with charities such as Unicef (Hong Kong), Bliss (UK), Careers Ready (UK), River of Hearts (Shanghai), and Lou's Place (Australia), to name just a few. Our staff have participated in Nuts Challenge obstacle courses, Sorting Days, marathons, and bake sales to raise money for those in need.

At Morgan McKinley we recruit first rate people who in turn recruit top talent for our clients. Our basic philosophy is to identify individuals with the right qualities to be great recruitment consultants, induct them in our Morgan McKinley values, and then empower them to serve, to specialise and to lead. If we decide to work together at Morgan McKinley it will be, first and foremost, because we believe you share the core beliefs and behaviours that are fundamental to our organisation:

undefined

Always Building Trust

“I always act with integrity and respect and do the right thing.” We build trust because our reputation depends on it, and our reputation means everything. The key word here is always. We always do the right thing.

Always Committed

“I believe in what we are doing and I give my best every day.”  We show commitment. That means we give our very best and we see things through. As a top racing driver once said, “To finish first, you must first finish.”

Always Communicating

“I engage in open, honest, two-way, timely communications internally and externally.”  We always communicate. With colleagues, with clients, with candidates. Above all that means listening. Sometimes the most important thing in communication is to hear what isn’t being said. Sensitivity and empathy are the keys to our success.

Always Embracing Change

“In an ambitious company, I recognise change is essential and I am open to it.”  We enjoy getting out of our comfort zone. There’s nothing “routine” about the way we do things at Morgan McKinley. Whereas our competitors will say “We’ve always done it that way”, at Morgan McKinley we say, “If you always do what you’ve done, you’ll always get what you’ve got.” Recruitment is a competitive business and this means we need to stretch beyond the traditional boundaries.

Have you ever thought about taking your career overseas? That's one of the great advantages of working in a business like ours, with it's scale and global reach. For anyone considering an international move, maybe not now, but perhaps in the future, you should speak with a member of our Talent Acquisition team. They can share their valuable knowledge and expertise about Morgan McKinley's various office locations globally, and talk you through the support provided by the company to help facilitate such moves.

    I have been working at Morgan McKinley part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Morgan McKinley is such a great place to work as they are all about the people! Being a working mum the flexibility they offer me is incredible and with the recent introduction of laptops, we are now able to work in a more agile environment. It's a very rewarding place to work, not only financially but also for me personally and professionally.

    Cons

    None I can think of.

    Associate Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Morgan McKinley (London, England) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and had a brief phone interview with the internal recruiter who was really nice. She invited me in for a group interview a week later. Group interview consisted of some question/answer activities, presentations and roleplays.

    I was then invited back for 3rd stage interviews with 3 senior consultants who go through your CV. Followed by a 4th stage interview with 2 more senior managers and then finally a meeting with the CEO.

    All the people I met were very pleasant and professional throughout the whole process even when they really challenged you, which is contrary to what you hear about interview processes at the other recruitment/sales organisations. It made me want to work for them even more.

    Interview tips: Don't be afraid to really sell yourself and show why a career in recruitment is for you.

    Interview Questions

    • You are paired with another candidate who you spend 10-15 minutes with to figure out their work history/qualifications. You then you have to present and sell that candidate to the interviewers in a few minutes.   1 Answer
