    Pros

    Very friendly and good communication. Make an effort to remember who you are and refine what kind of shifts they give to you based on where you work best in. Get to work in some major London stores.

    Cons

    Not always guaranteed shifts but this is rare, depends on season.

    Pros

    Lovely office staff, really caring and considerate. Shifts available when you ask for them, and if you work hard and build up a good rapport with the company you will get rewarded with more work, and more trainings on smaller brands with fewer staff members. This means you get so many more shifts as you’re one of 4 or 5 people who’s trained on a brand, as opposed to 50 or 60. If you put in the work and time, it’s definitely worth it.

    Cons

    Trainings aren’t paid, but that’s not so much a fault of Chimera as it is of the brands and companies that are requesting trained counter cover.

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

    Pros

    I worked for Chimera Recruitment for 18 months and can’t recommend them enough for those looking for flexible but fun temporary work with good rates of pay. I’ve worked for several temping agencies here in London and Chimera is by far the best. You feel valued, you feel respected, you feel supported and you really feel that you are a part of something. I would wholeheartedly recommend Chimera Recruitment to everyone and I would go back to working for them without hesitation should I ever need to!

    Cons

    Sometimes work can be a little less available (usually only in January) However the team work tirelessly to get you as much work as possible so it isn’t really an issue!

    I have been working at Chimera Recruitment for less than a year

    Pros

    Flexible work, with decent wage! the perfect job to support careers in the arts and freelance work with opportunities to develop skills and knowledge in fragrance, beauty, retail and other fields! Super understanding when I need time off even when it’s last minute and always seem to have work when I need shifts, giving me more freedom to focus on my other interests and passions!

    Cons

    Retail can be really boring when it’s quiet- obviously in no way the agency’s fault, I have no complaints about them
