    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.

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

    Pros

    - good grounding for future jobs - good work ethic and time management taught - can be a good confidence builder

    Cons

    - bullying common and encouraged by directors - macho and testosterone filled environment - even the best performers fear for there jobs - high staff turnover - Directors keep changing commission structures etc - If you are not "a lad" then you bullied and made to feel that you are not normal - pay is bellow market rate for this type of role

    Advice to Management

    Wake up, this is not the 1990's where you can bully staff and get away with it, hire some real managers and pay better salaries.

    Advice to Management

    People Like should stop being so arrogant and understand that running a business takes compassion not idiocracy and thoughtlessness. Welcome to the scrooge of the recruitment world...if its bad as an employer it must be just as bad for its clients.. don't bother contacting this company unless you have a death wish
