We take giving back seriously, but we have fun doing it. With the MMK Million we’ve set a goal to raise €1,000,000 for charity, and we’re three quarters of the way there! We’ve supported over 200 charities in the communities we work in and committed more than 8,000 hours volunteering for local causes.

At Morgan McKinley, our mission is to go beyond. That’s why we offer competitive salaries, work flexibility, benefits and so much more!


Purpose
Here Purpose isn’t a buzzword or a bandwagon we happened to hop on. It’s baked into our culture as our guiding principle. We’re here to improve lives: one colleague, one client, one candidate, one community at a time.


Reward

Our reward and recognition system is unique within the industry. Not only do we offer a competitive commission structure, but top performers enjoy five-star experiences such as overseas trips and luxury hotel stays. We also use any excuse for a party!

When you work with us we also work for you. This means ongoing training and development opportunities tailored to your career path, and a progression plan structured around your objectives. Plus, with universal access to our Knowledge Hub, you can up-skill any time, any place, on any device in any subject area you choose.


Culture

Our culture is what sets us apart. We pride ourselves on a social, collaborative environment that celebrates performance and supports employee well-being. We also believe in giving back. In the past two years, we’ve raised over €750,000, volunteered more than 8,000 hours and supported over 200 charities through our Morgan McKinley Million challenge.

    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
