    I have been working at DCL Search and Selection full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Been with the company 4 years. Started as a graduate recruiter and in no time was a qualified recruiter making money! DCL offer a great training programme, from reading specific books provided, to watching relevant videos, to doing presentations, and to doing role play telephone conversations. My manager and line manager were both very supportive whilst I was training and other colleagues were keen to help and ask about my progress.

    Cons

    Bit tricky to parking past 8.30am in the mornings, so either have to walk 10mins or use the local pay and display.
