    I worked at Search Consultancy full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - great training programme given by people who really want you to succeed, however half of them have been made redundant now - people are very welcoming - will be rewarded and recognised if you're succeeding (but if you're not they don't want to know) - not much pressure to work late/through lunch if you can show you're getting work done - did take everyone who was made redundant back on furlough but there was very little communication during this time

    Cons

    - made mass redundancies due to covid19 which suggests the business is in trouble - little on the job support from manager, feel like you were annoying/disturbing them by asking for help, but trainees on other teams seemed to be getting a lot better in-office training so depends on the manager - CEO comes to your desk and tries intimidate you on purpose - new CEO has a very hard sell approach towards recruitment, quantity not quality

    I have been working at Search Consultancy full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I've worked for Search for 4 years and have found it a great company to work for. Search offered great training which I found useful having joined the company with no previous experience. They offer opportunities for progression which has seen me get 3 promotions within my time here. I highly recommend them as a company to work for, particularly the Liverpool office which has a great atmosphere.

    Cons

    When I first joined the company they were not offering some of the flexible working conditions offered by other companies, however over time Search has become more up to date with what people want and have made a good effort to help improve and make the company a better place to work and are always introducing new ideas to keep employees happy.

    Pros

    I have been Employed by Search Consultancy for 8 years and have worked in recruitment for 20 years. I can honestly say I wish I had joined Search years ago. My experience with the business has been nothing but positive. If you work hard you will gain many rewards for it. Not only in terms of an up- capped bonus but also through our various rewards schemes. Search provides great Training and supports new starters with every step of their journey in the recruitment world. I would thoroughly recommend joining this successful, growing business.

    Cons

    No down sides that I can see, you get back what you put in.

    Thank you so much for your positive review, especially given your vast experience in the industry. It's fantastic to hear that after eight years you still couldn't find any cons to talk about! Our training and support team always receive rave reviews from new starters and experienced heads alike but it's always great to hear positive things about our industry leading bonus structure. We all hope you continue to enjoy working at Search and hopefully see you at the long serving members lunch in the near future too!

    Pros

    Supportive management, relevant targets and KPI's, excellent first year commission scheme. Great training.

    Cons

    Thresholds and bonus structure demand consistent performance, great for those that can maintain, can be a hindrance if fees don't land at the right time.
