    I worked at DCL Search and Selection full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The culture is one of kind. The leadership team have worked hard to develop an office environment that is not often found within recruitment. "To work in partnership" is one of 5 core values the business follows and it shows. People are more then happy to help each other and are always offering advice and feedback. Having joined with no experience, Arthur + Blaine were very supportive and great mentors to have, trusting me to take on more responsibility as I developed and introducing me to globally recognized clients. Speaking with friends in the industry, the chance to be involved directly with clients so quickly is rare and meant you could earn good commission. You get out what you put in, if you're driven and hungry to succeed you can progress within the business quickly and it will be supported by all the management team.

    Cons

    As with anywhere in recruitment, its not a 9-5. Long hours to be expected. The business is also based in Beckenham so commuting from other parts of London can be difficult.
