    I have been working at Switch Consulting full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Autonomy; a business that trusts their consultants to be proactive and intuitive and has allowed me to improve a lot of professional as well as personal skills.

    - Great Culture; despite a tough retail market, Switch Consulting are a positive business that back each other and support each other through the toughest of times.

    - Hold people accountable; Switch Consulting are a business that reward those with the right attitude towards recruitment. Laziness and bad attitude doesn't exist at Switch.

    - Honesty and integrity; Switch Consulting are a company that very much outline their expectations and give you all the tools to achieve this with a clear progression plan as well; something that is quite rare these days.

    - Great leadership; managers and directors in the business have a fantastic style of flexing their management style to suit consultants needs and wants

    Cons

    - No major cons about the business.

    - Holding people accountable around behaviours etc has led to people leaving the business and becoming quite bitter; which is never nice to see!

    Advice to Management

    - Keep doing what you are doing and the sky is the limit!

    - Keep holding people to account and keep striving to keep those with the right attitudes.

    - You can't be everyone's friend but, at the end of the day, you will have the best and right people on board!

    Recruitment Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Birmingham, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Switch Consulting (Birmingham, England) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The first stage was an informal coffee and a chat with one of the managers.
    After that I met with a director to talk through my CV and experience as well as an informal chat in to my interests etc.
    Third stage was more 'competency based'. I was asked to act out a role play around registering a candidate on our system. The interviewers said they were looking for how I picked up on commercial information, my tone on the phone and approach to a new candidate.
