    I have been working at Search Consultancy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Search is my first recruitment job and couldn't ask for better training and guidance. From the moment I started at Search I was provided with all information required to carry out my job effectively and constant development with my manager. The opportunities to develop and be promoted are clearly laid out and targets are clearly set.
    Everyone at Search are so helpful even across Divisions if need any advise and senior management are heavily involved and contactable regarding anything. I couldn't imagine working for another recruitment company.

    Cons

    Had no bad experiences regarding Search and would recommend to anyone looking to join Recruitment.

    Advice to Management

    To carry on being involved in all levels of Consultants development and makes such a difference to someone new coming into Recruitment to learn of experienced Managers and Directors.
