    I have been working at Certus Recruitment Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I have worked for Certus Recruitment for nearly 5 years now and have really enjoyed my time here! The culture is fantastic and the people I work with are great. The management team are also fabulous. They're extremely supportive and ensure you are always confident in what you're doing, whilst pushing you (in a good way) to be the absolute best you can be. They offer a clear progression and development plan and have process in place to ensure you are on track to succeed. I can not fault the company and I'm grateful to have started my recruitment career with such a fantastic business!

    Cons

    Having to work from home during Covid-19 and not being able to be in the office :-(

    Pros

    I am 3 months into the business and I can honestly say it is a fantastic place to work, across all our offices there is collaboration and support creating an enjoyable working culture. Great Senior leadership giving you autonomy to make decisions commercially for your business and rewarded well for delivering results.

    Cons

    No cons other than the mighty COVID - 19! I am looking forward to socials/office environment and normality with clients & candidates again!

    I have been working at Certus Recruitment Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I currently work at Certus Recruitment and felt an overwhelming urge to leave a review that is not led through bitterness and vindictiveness, but fact. Current facts. Certus is the most supportive and nurturing company I have worked at (I have worked at 4). They empower their employees to achieve success both professionally and personally. Working at Certus, enabled me to buy my first property and progress professionally. Their continued training allows individuals with no experience and with experience to further themselves, pushing themselves to their limits and becoming the best we can be. The CEO is incredibly supportive whether you're having a tough day or you need help to close that final deal - he is there every step of the way. However, the biggest Pro about working at Certus is the team spirit. The way the company has come together in economical crises to persevere and ensure that each and every employee will be financially and emotionally supported is breathtaking. There is no other recruitment company I would rather work for, and currently, cannot find a single fault.

    Cons

    The only con is that former employees who unfortunately are very bitter in general life, and not actually the fault of Certus feel the need to sit in their pants and post derogatory reviews that are false...

    Certus have been supportive during Covid-19 and are a great business to work with! We were also provided a great training platform when working from home, so we can constantly keep developing our skills!

There's such a positive energy in the office, and everyone wants everyone to succeed. It's an excellent environment to truly flourish and achieve your full potential. Thank you Certus, for everything so far, and everything to come.

    Cons

    I have none for you...

    I worked at Certus Recruitment Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Team mates and team leaders are some of the best people you could work with.

    Cons

    Certus teach you to view candidates as a commodity. Typical activity for activity sake culture. Their clients don’t like them because of their horrible pushy sales tactics. The company is run constantly on the brink of bankruptcy. My final pay (4 weeks notice) was £0 because they decided to deduct my comms from a previous month, leaving me in financial difficulty. This was despite me being one of their top billers for a year.

    I worked at Certus Recruitment Group part-time

    Pros

    Certus found me a well-suited job within two weeks, and my recruiter Gabbie was really friendly and helpful.

    Cons

    They do ring you quite a lot with interview opportunities but if you're desperate for a job it's not a bad thing!!

    -Encouragement to achieve your professional/personal goals via route to success meetings. I found these really helpful! - Collaborative working between the teams - Competitive, but in a good way. Have fun, work hard attitude - Are flexible if you need time off - Incentives - recently had a company sports day!

    Cons

    Recruitment is hard - but with hard work comes reward. If you don't have the professional maturity to know when to work and when to play I guess this could be a distraction
