    I worked at Robert Half full-time (More than a year)


    I loved my time working at Robert Half and couldn’t recommend it more as a business. I joined as a graduate and was given the best sales training I could have asked for, which was consistently updated throughout my time working there. The Leeds office has a great atmosphere - it is a really fun place to work, but is also a competitive, driven environment in which you are pushed to succeed. The management team are amazing and incredibly supportive, constantly working with you to help you progress. The commission structure also means you are highly rewarded for your hard work! I only left the role due to relocation and was really sad to leave - I looked forward to coming to work everyday because I got to work in a great place with great people! Genuinely couldn't recommend enough.


    The job can be tough at times and it does take hard work (as with any recruitment role), but there is constant support and it is definitely worth it in the end!

    Advice to Management

    More of the same, I wouldn't change anything about my experience.
