NonStop Recruitment – Why Work For Us?


NonStop Recruitment, one of the fastest growing recruitment firms, has an equal passion for connecting top talent with top employers as it has for training and developing top talent for itself.

As a leading name in European recruitment within the pharmaceuticals, medical devices, chemicals, care, education, technical, and digital sectors, we are continually striving to raise the bar of recruitment industry standards. As part of that, we are dedicated to continuous training and development for our employees.

Comprising a diverse range of nationalities, cultures and personal backgrounds, we have created a highly rewarding, genuinely meritocratic working environment where every employee knows they are part of something special and all are supported on their personal journeys to find success.

And we want our people to have the best possible working environments too, which is why we have a range of stunning offices across Europe including on the 32nd floor in London’s Canary Wharf, making us the highest recruitment consultancy in Europe, and Prague’s Danube House, which you will be able to spot in James Bond’s Casino Royale.

Our industry unrivalled in-house training team provides personalised support to each trainee while more senior recruiters provide coaching and mentoring.

The training academy, and the company as a whole, is supported by our dedicated in-house Quality Assurance team which takes an objective, data-driven view of our practices to ensure employees are developing the right skills, and help them stay on the path to success. This function, unique within the recruitment industry, also means we know our people provide nothing but the very best, ethical service.

NonStop is a business of real personality and of real opportunity; a company on a mission. Our business model is disrupting the recruitment industry and providing us an exceptional growth platform to become one of the world’s largest recruitment businesses. In 2019 we are going global and are looking to find motivated minds in order to be our next business leaders around the world.

NonStop is built on a philosophy of challenging ourselves and a desire to help our people achieve their potential all the while providing the very best service for our clients. We are more than a recruitment consultancy; we are a training and development company – 98% of our consultants joined us with no prior recruitment experience and we want that legacy to continue.

We have exceptional belief in our people, and wanted to give you the same level of belief that NonStop is the right place for you to Develop, Grow and ultimately Succeed beyond your expectations.

1. Life Experience

Our Training Academy is based in the stunning central European city of Prague. We realise there are many choices for those interested in getting into recruitment, but not many of them can offer you the genuine life experience of  working in an international company supporting international clients alongside exceptional rewards, training, career development and a genuine community of like-minded people. 

2. The NonStop Community

We realise that your career and rewards are important, however being a NonStopper means far more than that. You will be joining an environment that is as diverse and multicultural as they come – the NonStop Community is made up of 27 nationalities and speaks 20+ languages!

And while we are a diverse group, you will never be short of people to help you integrate, have fun and socialise. 

The NonStop community exists throughout the business, from our Prague office located in Danube House (spot it in James Bond's Casino Royale) to our sky high London office in Canary Wharf (making us the highest recruitment team in Europe!), every NonStopper plays their part in creating a combined culture that has phenomenal energy, passion and enthusiasm.

3. Training and Personal Development.

Exceptional personal and career development is underpinned by our award-winning training programme that is proven to develop elite recruiters – people who joined with no prior recruitment experience but who are now among the best in Europe. Training and development is at the core of our DNA and it the reason our business has the growth record it does. 

In order to unlock NonStopper potential, our training programme is backed up by a mentoring and coaching culture that means it far exceeds other industry programmes. Coaching and mentoring starts on day one and continues through every stage of your career. 

4. Rewards

Motivated minds earn motivating rewards and nowhere is that more true than here at NonStop. To give you a brief idea our top-level performers at consultant stage will earn upwards of €8,000 of monthly commission. Prove yourself, join our NonStop Accelerate programme and the rewards are truly life-changing – imagine early retirement and never having to worry about money again.

NonStop’s rewards structure is not just financial: Our strong performers are rewarded with annual trips abroad (recently visiting Dubai, New York and St Tropez) whilst our quarterly Gold Biller Lunch Club sees strong performers from all offices having fun together over a leisurely lunch. 

It’s not just tangible rewards either. NonStoppers genuinely enjoy the life changing moments that come with connecting our clients and candidates – help them both to also Develop, Grow and Succeed.


5. Career Development

As a NonStopper, career growth comes from personal development but also the business growing rapidly, meaning more entry-level people joining and more chance for people to step up into leadership roles and help those new people develop. This is the organic growth we are proud of and means NonStoppers are likely to be promoted into management roles far quicker than at any other recruitment organisation. A key factor in why we are able to support people to do that is due to the training, coaching and mentoring that continues throughout the NonStop career.

But the career path doesn’t have to lead into management – we have some people who chose to become career consultants, or to move into other departments. Our Training & Development and Talent Acquistion teams, for example, have been built from NonStoppers moving from other roles. Various roles within our operations team are also an option.

As a NonStopper you can move into more senior roles as fast as your ability, motivation and ambition will allow you. Yes, there is promotion criteria but it is clear, transparent and most importantly, consistent throughout the company.



NonStop culture is one of meritocracy and working hard to achieve a common goal. 

Best summed up here:



Becoming a recruiter with NonStop means you will receive industry-leading, award-winning training designed to help you acheive your personal and professional goals. 

NonStop training is a mixture of classroom-based, one-on-one, self learning and 'on-the-job' training, intially under the supervision of our five-person inhouse Training & Development team. You will also learn from more experienced colleagues around you and, as you progress, receive significant coaching from Team Leaders. 

The intial phase of training lasts for an average of three months but this is entirely down to you and there is no time limit - we will continue to work with you for as long as it takes, provided you match our efforts. Here at NonStop, you get out what you put in. 

As your NonStop career progresses you will also receive training from industry experts. 

What does it take to ensure success at NonStop? It's all about mindset: resilience, the ability to take feedback, entreprenurial spirit, great communication, motivation and drive. 

Hi everyone

My name is Kevin and I wanted to write a brief introduction in the hope it helps to give an indication about myself and the philosophy behind NonStop Recruitment, the company I formed in May 2000.

Whilst I appreciate these days it may seem a bit of a cliché, I am one of those individuals that started from humble beginnings. From living in a car in South London to working over 30 jobs, including in fast food restaurants and as a courier driver, ice rink engineer and door-to-door salesman selling books, kitchenware and most famously frozen fish and gourmet foods, my CV was hardly a sparkling pinnacle of achievement.

Whilst out selling fish I spotted an advert for a London City head hunting firm. Their minimum requirement was degree-level education, which I didnt have as I left university after a year. Undeterred I got on the phone and convinced them to give me an interview. I remember how raw I was in those days, but I could sell and I was hungry for success and somehow I managed to get a shot. In my second month I placed eight candidates and went on to hit my car target almost immediately, before the intake three months earlier managed it. In my first year I earned just under £100k in income, billing in the region of £400k. This was truly life changing for me.

After one year a number of people left that business and they convinced me to move to another firm in Old Street, which I did and quickly established myself as the top permanent recruiter in that business. After just two years there I decided to start out on my own.

Looking back now, I honestly don’t think I could have made more mistakes, but that is after all how we all learn. I wanted to create a recruitment business for recruiters, one with exceptional commission, a positive sales culture, with the energy of my first recruitment employers but with the humanity of the second.

The learning curve was steep and at times truly harsh - maybe one day, after a beer, I can tell the full story, but regardless, NonStop was born. It has evolved continually despite a lot of challenges and finally it is becoming the kind of firm that I imagined in the beginning.

Some time ago I reached my personal targets and now my ambition is driven towards taking the young people that we trained and helping mentor them as they take the same journey I went on, without so many of the mistakes, and to build a global business with truly exceptional values: meritocracy, rewards, learning and giving people a chance.

I am most proud of the meritocratic way that the business operates - that we employ people without any relevant experience and do our best to develop them into professional head hunters, managers and directors.

I get messages from ex employees who left 10 years ago that  say that their careers started with my training, and I look at some of the people that have worked so hard over the last few years and have developed professionally and personally into confident young business people, buying properties, travelling the world, driving super cars and pushing the business forward over the coming years, and the reward is to know that in some small way the platform that I have developed has helped enable them to reach their potential.

We are still learning, still making mistakes, but honestly the business has never been better or more enjoyable to work in.

For those of you thinking of joining or have joined, I look forward to getting to know you and of course am happy to answer questions openly about the business, its goals and ideals.

Happy recruiting to one and all and I wish you the best success.

    I have been working at NonStop Recruitment (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You will find a very diverse culture, there are teams designated specifically to different markets and industries.
    I have to say the ongoing training and the feeling of support is something refreshing.
    It can definitely lead to a long lasting career in the business but I like the fact that working as a recruiter for NonStop will teach you the core and most valuable skills a good communicator must have: business acumen, sales and negotiation skills, empathy and looking to provide value.
    Another great point is that NonStop has offices in multiple locations around Europe, which is beneficial if one would like to relocate.

    Cons

    The open office aspect might not be for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work
