      Pros

      I joined Hays around 5 years ago as an Associate Recruitment Consultant with 1 year prior recruitment experience. Since day one I have received market leading training to help me develop my career from strength to strength. Hays have a very clear career progression plan for individuals at all levels with achievable milestones which are constantly being reviewed to help you achieve the best possible career. Since joining Hays, I have achieved 3 promotions as well being on track to being promoted to Manager over a high performing team. Hays offer a wide range of career paths from operational management to sales / strategic focused opportunities, so you will always find a career path that would suit your ambitions. The culture at Hays is truly rewarding, I work with a number of likeminded professionals who all share the same goal to provide a first class service to both candidates & clients.

      Cons

      The cons for working at Hays are the working hours. However, this has recently changed with the introduction of a hybrid working from home policy.

      Great company to work for Amazing people in the organisation Supportive and offer solid career progression options

      The hours can sometime be a little long, however you are rewarded for hard work and can take the time back flexibly, so not really a con I guess
