    I have been working at Certus Sales full-time for less than a year

    I haven't been at Certus very long, but the team could not be more welcoming or professional. Everyone works so hard to make sure they are providing the best service they can.

    If you do not want to work hard every day and get results, you will not be comfortable working at Certus!

    I worked at Certus Sales full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Brilliant reward led culture.
    Management are supportive at all levels and have an open door policy.
    Management share company aims and strategy.
    There are weekly, monthly and quarterly one to ones with management.
    Great office environment.
    A true shared vision throughout the staff of quality delivery and enjoyment of the job.
    Good training structure now in place.
    Clearly defined career path.
    Ambitious and growing organisation.
    When you move to your next role you will realise just how much you learned at Certus.
    You will 100% miss the banter, and the staff.

    Cons

    If you are not willing to work hard you will struggle.
    If you are under ambitious, you will find that people will progress quicker than you.
    Recruitment in general is a role that you have to stick with in order to reap the benefits, as with any sales role, the first year is tough, but earnings increase dramatically and the job becomes much easier the longer you stick with it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep going the way you are, with the right people hired Certus will become number 1 in the UK.
    Believe in your ability over the competition, as whenever there has been a genuine comparison Certus more often than not come out on top.

    Pros

    This company has very few postives about it apart from the coffee

    Arrogance
    Lies
    Indencent
    Nice offices

    Cons

    How is this company still in business its almost like its massmarketing and bad business ethics
    Bullies
    A non corporate environment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People Like should stop being so arrogant and understand that running a business takes compassion not idiocracy and thoughtlessness.

    Welcome to the scrooge of the recruitment world...if its bad as an employer it must be just as bad for its clients.. don't bother contacting this company unless you have a death wish
