    Former Employee - Recruitment Consultant in Glasgow, Scotland
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Search Consultancy full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Experience and training given are excellent
    Opportunities available if you work hard can be fantastic
    If you have the right manager and their support you can go very far and earn a lot of money doing so!

    Cons

    Company has changed a lot over the years and not necessarily for the better
    A lot of personnel changes/revolving doors resulting in inconsistency of service for some clients and adding more pressure on the longer term members of staff

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your leavers via the Leavers Surveys- some are non regretted leavers granted, but not all, and there will be a consistency in the messages being given.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Search Consultancy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Other friendly team members.
    Payroll is efficient.

    Cons

    Sexist towards woman, particularly in Trades & Labour
    Stuck in the 60s

    Advice to Management

    There is no management, purely left to your own devices, however, told to sit at desk and make endless, untargetted calls (Very archaic attitude towards recruitment methods)

    The HR Department allow managers to sack you, even when out of probation, for no actual reason. Very bizarre place to work.

    Extremely high turn over staff (even for recruitment), the picture they posted in the Leicester Mercury showed 11 out of 12 ex-staff members -embarassing.

  7. "BEWARE GIRLS"

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Search Consultancy full-time

    Pros

    Im still searching for a job... but i definitely wont be using them!

    Cons

    I was made aware that a male member of your team in the manchester branch adds girls on whatsapp and uses it as a dating platform. He sends the same messages to them all. Surely this is against data protection? He never even put them up for any jobs. I know this happened to some other girls not so long ago.

    Advice to Management

    might want to keep a check on what your staff are up to.
