    I have been working at Eligo Recruitment (Less than a year)

    Pros

    After Leaving University in June, I started my career in recruitment. The Eligo Academy really help me through this transitional period, what might have been a hard and daunting time for a lot of graduates or even those starting recruitment for the first time - was made very simple and relaxing with the help and guidance I was provided with by the management.
    Going into an industry I had no knowledge wasn’t an issue, I was provided with excellent one to one training daily – Vicky who is my dedicated mentor did a fantastic job in helping me get a solid understanding of not only the market I was going into but recruitment also. So much so, I was able to make my first placement in my second week of starting in the academy, which really shows the quality and pace of the training the academy provides.
    As well as the quality of training, Eligo really stands by its core values which is something that is rare in a lot of companies. Everyone in the company is friendly and full of advice which made me feel welcome from day one. Having Recently moved into new offices, there is a real buzz around the place which just adds to why Eligo is such a good company to work for.

    Cons

    I don't have a bad word to say about Eligo!

    Pros

    Eligo offer you the opportunity to build your desk the way you feel it should be done, they offer you the support and encouragement needed to succeed in what can be a brutal industry. Whilst many agencies can be cut throat Eligo offer an environment that thrives on progression and success. Management are continuously looking to acknowledge the win’s no matter how big or small, whether you are a junior consultant looking to break into the business or a senior looking to take your billings to the next level Eligo will offer the right road map to help you achieve your goals.

    Cons

    Maybe a better office from which to sell the brand like other agencies, which is actually in progress so apart from that, I can't think of any.

    Advice to Management

    They are very transparent, so can’t really fault them.

    Pros

    There are no pros for this poor recruitment company.

    Cons

    Poor commission structure (paid quarterly with a threshold)horrible office above a shop, people are just out for themselves and no team environment, management don't know what they are doing.

    Advice to Management

    Pay commission monthly and gave no threshold

    Well, this isn't ideal, is it? We admit, newly-painted pink walls in an office might not be for some, but we're fairly happy to be located within seconds of an incredible biltong shop, Sainsbury's... More

    Pros

    Eligo offer loads of support and advice when you need it the most, which coincides nicely with their relaxed atmosphere and non-stringent management. You are encouraged, motivated, and rewarded excellently. Not to mention the office location is great too, and the people definitely know how to have fun!

    Cons

    Way too many pubs and bars to choose from when you want to go out for a drink after work...

    Pros

    Being part of the Eligo Crew is extremely rewarding. The great support from Management and the friendly environment makes it a lovely place to work in. As long as you have the passion and the drive, there are always going to be people to help you throughout your journey of getting successful. Loads of training and support provided, along with the Director's willingness to listen to their employees and understand their needs.

    Cons

    If you are not careful, you might get distracted by the fun and relaxed environment and the lack of micromanagement. You always have to remember to "work hard, play hard". As long as you are motivated and working hard, you can definitely enjoy!! :)

    Advice to Management

    Please take us again somewhere nice, as the last 2 brilliant trips to Dubai and Barbados.

    I have been working at Eligo Recruitment full-time

    Pros

    Fresh out of university, I decided to embark on a career in recruitment- and I am so happy that I found Eligo and their Academy!

    The interview process for the Academy, which included a short video task and a face-to-face with multiple tasks to complete, is set up to help people succeed- my CV lacked prior experience, so the process really allowed me to show the management what I could do- or at least, give a good idea of my potential!

    Because the process involves dealing with multiple members of the senior management team, it also really allows you to get a feel for the company. From the moment I stepped into the office, the buzz of activity that you would expect was joined by a genuinely contented aura from everyone in the room- this is a company you enjoy working for, for sure.

    One of the key points about Eligo is that they are completely honest with you in their expectations of you- and entirely committed to helping you succeed. Whether that is in the weekly meetings with the managers so as to get a solid idea of your progress, to the training sessions provided to every member of the Academy to ensure your journey into the recruitment world is as smooth as possible, there is not a single moment that has not helped me gain more knowledge.

    Eligo is so easy to recommend for so many reasons- the helpfulness of everyone, the general positive atmosphere in the office, the realistic but challenging targets- everything is set up to help you succeed!

    Cons

    I actually can't think of a downside- even my travel is manageable, being only one half-hour bus journey each way!

    I have been working at Eligo Recruitment full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Mature environment where you truly are running a business within a business. Opportunities to progress very quickly. Fantastic commission structure and regular incentives (not the generic incentive trips either - Eligo are VERY creative). Recruiters from different backgrounds and different ways of working. Access to all the latest sourcing techniques and platforms.

    Cons

    Genuinely haven't had one complaint to make since I've been here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing! It's very rare to find a company where Senior Recruiters are open to further training because of the forward thinking ideas and the format of sessions.

    Pros

    I have been here just 5 weeks now and have felt supported and encouraged from the beginning. It is always scary starting a new job but the people at Eligo have been great in making me feel welcome and one of the team.

    Great Location- there are so many great restaurants and pubs nearby.
    Great office atmosphere- office music, end of week drinks and being treated to ice creams in the summer!

    Cons

    The working hours - but going to the pub after work as a team certainly makes up for it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, because its working.

    I have been working at Eligo Recruitment full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I’ve recently joined Eligo through their Eligo Academy scheme and have to say that though I have not been here long, I already feel well and truly like an Eligoid and I found the perfect place to start my career.

    The Eligoid’s have taken me and the other new bees in like their own. They have provided us with structure and precious knowledge towards success while allowing experimentation, creativeness and innovation. I really feel like part of a team working together towards the same goal.

    The guys are not only your employers but also kind, caring generally good people, and for me that is priceless!
    I know their goal is for me to be happy and stimulated in my work and let me tell you they know what they are doing! They have the perfect balance between work and fun, enriching, events.

    Cons

    You end up going home later than you had expected when the Eligoid’s invite you out to the pub ;) Something you just have to live with I guess…

    Advice to Management

    Keep up your grate events, the games, the end of week drinks, the cheeky ice-creams etc. You really make us enjoy our time with you and feel at home.
