    I have been working at McCarthy Recruitment full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Training, focus on you as an individual. Caring and listens. Adapts to the market but also puts the teams needs first. Always asking for feedback and decisions are made together. Success is celebrated and you are rewarded. Business puts the team at the heart of its direction and purpose.

    Cons

    You either get it or you don’t. It’s like a family, you have to be committed and want to go on the journey. No time for people who genuinely don’t care about colleagues.

    Cons

    For me, none. The only reason I have recently left is due to finding a new career closer to home.

    I have been working at McCarthy Recruitment full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I started working at McCarthy around 4 years ago on a Graduate scheme just after finishing Uni. I had no previous experience in recruitment and absolutely no idea of what to expect! I was amazed at how welcome the entire team made me feel from the minute that I stepped through the door. I imagined it would take a while for me to get into the swing of things with me being a complete newbie, but the training I received was so thorough and clear that within my first week I had made a placement! The support I received at McCarthy was second to none, I've never been in a working environment before where you can have a close relationship with the MD and really feel like part of a team and not just a number. However before I began at McCarthy I had already planned to pursue a travelling dream to Brazil, so I ventured off after 3 months and ended up landing a job working in tourism each summer season. The best part is that each year after finishing in Brazil, Kate let's me come back and work for her whilst I'm in the UK! I cannot think of any other company that would offer that level of flexibility, but for me it's been absolutely priceless and allowed me to pursue my personal goals without having to sacrifice a job that I've really grown to love. Thanks Kate you're amazing.

    Cons

    Zero. It's hard work - but then nothing worth having in life comes easily!

    Pros

    Great culture and team work, the support within the business is fantastic, from day one onward. Opportunity to influence your own earnings and drive your own success. The volume of awards that the company has won over recent years, really does speak volumes of what it is like to work here.

    Cons

    I honestly can not think of any, it really is a great place to work.

    Pros

    McCarthy Recruitment has been the best place I've worked by far! The management and team are passionate, driven, supportive and most of all down to earth. There is a wealth of knowledge through out the team from a retail and hospitality background and I have learnt a lot since starting. The perks, rewards and incentives from Kate are amazing and achievable. I Would highly recommend the business whether it be as a client, candidate or the next member of our team! =)

    Cons

    Not much at all, the fact that I travel 120 miles a day to work here is a pain but its worth it!
