    Pros

    I worked at Premier for less than a year and my time there was great! The company make sure they look after their staff with amazing incentives!
    The support from the management team at times of need is outstanding and they do all in their power to help and support you in anyway which says a lot about them as genuine people.

    Cons

    Premier expect you to do the best you can do so be prepared to put in hard work and long hours because the job can get very stressful at times and you must be able to take on the pressure.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would be to keep doing what you are doing because you are not only wonderful leaders but also wonderful friends!

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

    Pros

    The Managers and team are very friendly and make new employees feel welcome into the business. For all employees, we have the opportunity to earn high potential with incentives on top. Everyone who works for Premier has the potential to build a career, progress and work towards targets to win holidays away.
    Managers have a hands on approach, which helps employees feel valued in the team and results in transparent relationships with Manager and Team Leaders.

    Cons

    Premier work long hours and targets can make the job stressful, however these are spoken about in interview processes so are already preconceived before starting.

    Advice to Management

    Training and support is exceptional to all Consultants! Keep doing what you do, and keep listening to ideas from Consultants.

    I worked at Premier Group Recruitment full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you want to make money and see real progression then this is the perfect place to work. You get support and real recognition for grafting and showing a desire to succeed, the training was the best I’ve had and the team is full of personality, you would find it very difficult not to get on with everyone. Very social and a positive place to be. You are expected to work hard but anyone wanting to make a serious living should be more than willing to put the effort in.

    Cons

    Don’t work here if your motivations aren’t solid, you won’t enjoy the effort required.

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for the platform you gave me

    I have been working at Premier Group Recruitment full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The career progression
    The opportunities to work with some really well known clients and brands
    The management team, they all started as trainee cons in the business at some point which is unheard of these days
    The support from the back office team
    The training program, I’ve not seen anything similar anywhere else
    The earning potential
    They bring out the best in anyone wanting to really achieve something

    Cons

    It’s a demanding role but if you want an easy ride with little reward then it’s not for you anyway.

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    Promising training programme
    Fun incentives
    Great location

    Cons

    Poor senior management with lack of training capabilities which is a shame because from the outset the training programme looks promising.
    Staff favouritism which explains a lot for the companies low turnover. In short if you are not a loud and cocky individual you will not fit it.
    Unrealistic targets and ridiculous working hours.

    Advice to Management

    Seriously review your senior management team rather than constantly looking for new staff as they are your downfall
