    I have been working at White Recruitment full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I have recently passed my 6 month probation period with White Recruitment. My team have mentored me and helped me develop into a confident recruiter and I am beginning to see really success as a result of this. The Directors have developed a fantastic company culture with strong core values and a great ethos towards recruitment. This is a fantastic place to work!

    Cons

    I don't have a negative word to say about this company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    I have been working at White Recruitment full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Despite only being a few months in, I have managed to already make my own placements thanks to the training and support I have had from my manager and other people on my team. I'm also booked in to training with the Recruitment Network soon - Company is flexible for people with families and other commitments - Love the free lunches and coffee machine - Some good work around wellbeing - there was a wellbeing... week last year where there were yoga classes and various other talks - New Northstar system is really good for showing me how I am doing against what is expected and motivates me to be top of the leaderboard

    I worked at White Recruitment full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Free lunch Average salary Office close for 10 days over chirstmas

    Cons

    I have work for white recruitment for just under a year! Not a great company to work for as the 2 directors of the company have separate visions and structures and cant seem decide on anythig. The company have had over 8 members of staff leave in last 3/4 months. Mangers are too busy praising the higher billers who have worked for company 5+ years, when they should be supporting the new staff allowing them... to develop to full potential! Commison structure is awful it is not incentive its actually more demotivating than anything ! flexi Friday it's not incentive to finish early you have come early, therefore your been rewarded with shorter day at all ! Training programme for new starters needs some serious work from company prospective. White recruitment need to ask and reflect why theif losing staff to quickly! Emplyee of the month is a popularity contest as apose to someone actually doing well in their in the job ! The office has had some serious hygine issues of rats living in the floor broads for good 6/8 weeks. I hope this helps white recruitment improve as company as I have now spoken to competitors and white recruitment has now got seriously bad reputation neaely as match tech !

    Pros

    Every day in recruitment there are highs and lows but WR if you are willing and listen, there are certainly more highs. Great training infrastructure Great incentives Having worked with other agencies who had no structure it’s great to see a focus, a plan and career path and long may I continue to blossom with WR... I hope! WR vision looks great moving forward too. Just one big WR family in some ways !

    Cons

    Flexi Friday? Is it a thing ?

    Advice to Management

    Maybe more mixed team relationship building. It would be great to learn off and see what some do differently in other teams. Or even a ‘desk switch afternoon’.

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

    Pros

    There’d have to be something special out there to make me want to leave. The office has a relaxed atmosphere, music, pool table, ping pong (cuddles with the office dog!!), great people that are a lot of fun as well as a real mixed bag of personalities. The management are incredibly supportive in so many ways: training, advice, desk support, progression and career development and just as importantly supportive... with things not necessarily work related. HR has had a revamp with a terrific new director and internal recruiter that is equally supportive in the transition into WR. It’s very easy for companies to advertise how great they are at providing genuine sales training and clear routes for progression but White are even better at putting this into practice as they very much value the effort and commitment their employees put into their careers. The directors aren’t shy and are super involved which is amazing as the knowledge between them in invaluable. They aren’t afraid to continue learning either and are always searching for new ways to improve the way we work and are always open to ideas, no matter how big or small.

    Pros

    free lunch, parking, supportive, buzzing office, music played, young and social teams, excellent Christmas parties and social events. Last but not least they have an office puppy that comes to visit. Progressed to Senior Recruiter within 2 years of working here, lots of opportunities, best WR has been in terms of strong recruiters and teams.

    Office can be chilly - bring in a jumper

    Thank you for your feedback. Yep, climate control is a challenge with an open plan office. For some it's too hot, others it's too cold. When staff are opening windows, others are turning the heating up. Bringing adequate clothing to work is sound advice.

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

    Pros

    5 years ago Jamie and Lewis took a chance on me with no experience and have taught me all I know in recruitment. They have always given me consistency and support to develop as a Recruiter. WR has changed a lot in the last 5 years. A few years ago there were a few bumps in the road, but they stuck to their vision and from that we now have a great working environment. Jamie and Lewis have put an incredible... amount of attention into making sure that the company vision is right for the staff and success of the business.
