    I have been working at Certus Recruitment Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Superb office environment and truly supportive structure. Everyone is encouraged and given the autonomy to build their own business within the company at a realistic pace with achievable targets.
    The management team is experienced with over 40+ years of combined recruitment experience who always have time for training and imparting their knowledge on to their teams.
    Success is celebrated and everyone truly works for each other and to move the business as whole forwards.

    Cons

    At the rate the business is growing a move to a new office will be required sooner rather than later!

    I worked at Certus Recruitment Group full-time

    Pros

    - Finishing early on Fridays
    - Had a Mini Fridge with Beers for Fridays

    Cons

    - An incredibly discriminating company
    - No direct achievable path for progression given
    - Targeted daily on booking candidates in when there were no job opportunities for them
    - No structure within the company
    - Very immature atmosphere where favouritism occurred
    - Very unfriendly individuals who made more than 5 people leave in a short space of time
    - Was led to believe this would be an amazing job but it was the worst decision I had made along with many other previous employees having agreed.

    Advice to Management

    The majority of previous employees have left within a short amount of time. I think this is a problem within your internal structure as well as management. Also to point out that there were some members of your team being the most awful people I have ever met. No one should have felt like this so early on into a new job. First impressions means everything.

    Pros

    Strong culture and team mentality bread from day one with various team building activities and team contribution KPI's. Heavily invest in development of employees and strive to get you earning you full potential.

    Cons

    Lack of microwave in the office! No cigarette breaks during the day. KPI driven although this does create results.

    Advice to Management

    Get a microwave to add to the fully stocked kitchen. Would be nice to have warm food without paying Baker street prices for the privilege
