    Pros

    Managers that really care
    Excellent commission structure
    Great Location
    Excellent tools to do your job
    Fun Culture

    I've been working for J2 for just under four months and after 15 years in recruitment, I can honestly say it's best decision I've ever made. The directors here Jimmy and James, really care about the staff and do everything they can to make working here fun. They've put in a commission structure that's extremely generous and genuinely rewards hard work. We have the best tools and job boards available to help us do our jobs to the best of our ability. The offices are in a great location with excellent bars and restaurants. I would recommend J2 to any recruitment consultant looking for a new role. They do things very differently here.

    Cons

    There are no cons here.

    I have been working at J2 Recruitment (Less than a year)

    Pros

    J2 made me feel like part of the team straight away, I was new to recruitment when I started but they have never made me feel out of my depth, was nice to be included in incentive rewards and team socials from the start.

    Cons

    The hours are long, but that is part and parcel of recruitment.

    Pros

    Excellent environment and earning potential which is essential for anyone in Recruitment. Fantastic support, both directors are very hands on and there to help you. There's never a dull day this is a very fun place to work with regular team events and a sociable team.

    Best of all these guys know recruitment!!! And they understand better than most that happy staff work harder. Too many recruitment companies are over targeting consultants with multiple KPIs and old fashioned procedure. Not these guys. This is recruitment as it should be.... moving with the pace of the market and adapting to keep consultants motivated.

    If you are looking for a company who values you and recognises your potential and hard work I would recommend this company.

    Cons

    Genuinely I don't have any.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing.
