    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Certus Recruitment Group

    Pros

    Good money to be earned if you obey the leadership and don't mind being bullied from day one.

    Cons

    Extremely arrogant CEO that is only interested in making money and not in the well being of his staff. Very much a boiler room environment that breeds greed and envy of your more successful colleagues.

    Advice to Management

    Go on an extensive 'Anger Management' course!!

    Pros

    Brilliant reward led culture. Management are supportive at all levels and have an open door policy. Management share company aims and strategy. There are weekly, monthly and quarterly one to ones with management. Great office environment. A true shared vision throughout the staff of quality delivery and enjoyment of the job. Good training structure now in place. Clearly defined career path. Ambitious... and growing organisation. When you move to your next role you will realise just how much you learned at Certus. You will 100% miss the banter, and the staff.

    Cons

    If you are not willing to work hard you will struggle. If you are under ambitious, you will find that people will progress quicker than you. Recruitment in general is a role that you have to stick with in order to reap the benefits, as with any sales role, the first year is tough, but earnings increase dramatically and the job becomes much easier the longer you stick with it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep going the way you are, with the right people hired Certus will become number 1 in the UK. Believe in your ability over the competition, as whenever there has been a genuine comparison Certus more often than not come out on top.

    There has been fantastic change in the business over the last 3 years. Keep focusing on developing the people and the business can only grow.
