    I worked at Robert Half full-time (More than 3 years)


    I worked in the Leeds office of Robert Half for 4 years, and thoroughly enjoyed my time there. The best element of the Leeds office is the people, who yes work hard, but also try and make each day a positive working environment. The management structure is based upon merit and experience, with senior managers always present in the office to support teams. The Leeds office also benefits from an excellent sales support team who do
    a huge amount to assist the recruitment consultant teams. The director of the Leeds office was actively involved with each employee, and invested a lot of time supporting me during my time there.
    I received excellent training during my time, and the company has also recently invested in upgrading its software and hardware to improve working efficiency.
    I thought this was a great place to work, and would happily recommend tomanyone interested in a career in recruitment.


    Occasional long hours, but standard for the recruitment industry

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing time in people as you did with me, and encouraging a happy working environment
