    A first class organisation with a vision that is clear and holds employees' development at it's core.

    I have been working at Resource Solutions full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The people are without exception all high quality and this has an inspiring and motivational affect. Leadership of the business is strong both in terms of growing the organisation (which breeds opportunity) but also in embracing an employee focussed agenda. The working environment is fantastic and Head Office is a fun place to be around. Our approach to achieving and maintaining true partnerships with our clients is exactly what is needed, but also so often lacking, in this industry. Pay and benefits are both good as is work life balance and the flexibility offered by the organisation. A great organisation that genuinely makes you proud to be an employee and part of the 500+ strong team.

    Cons

    Prefer not to split hairs or quote areas of improvement that are typical across all businesses! Perhaps a greater attention of developing the business outside of London but this is an case of growing the company rather than a criticism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing!

    Inflexible, Long Hours, Unsupportive Management

    Current Employee - Recruiter

    I have been working at Resource Solutions full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I must say although generally dissatisfied at my base client site where my confidence was chipped away by unsupportive and "blame cultured" management, I had the opportunity to work for another client site which I really enjoyed due to a highly supportive and encouraging manager. I had the opportunity to manage my own workload and projects and I felt my confidence had been restored.

    Cons

    Although an RPO, some managers are too agency focused and foster an unprofessional environment. Working hours are really long 8.30 to 6 and yet we are expected to attend (with no option of not attending) after work events in London. No flexibility in remote working or flexible hours. Benefits are practically non-existent. High turnover of staff. In terms of progression it's one rule for one and another rule for others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move away from an agency culture, it will do you no favours when liaising with clients. Consider improvements in work life balance to retain staff. The pressure to attend work events outside of working hours is highly inconvenient for staff with children and family commitments.

    I have been working at Resource Solutions full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Such a positive environment and Senior Management who really lead! The quality and depth of experience across the business and how much part of the team that I feel. There is a real drive and passion for what we do across all departments both in the field and the back office. I feel treated like a professional and given the responsibiliity to get on with my job, but I know there's a fantastic support network in place if I need it, starting from my Manager and beyond. No unnecessary 'micro management' and the opportunity for me to grow and develop. Good recognition of effort and a range of perks that make working at RS a complete pleasure. The best move I made for my career.

    Cons

    No major cons, only small points that are no real issues. A few practicalities around remote working, but nothing that really impacts my role.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you do! Share your knowledge and experience and continue to provide opportunities for employees to grow and build on their careers.

    Pros

    Great client list with varying RPO models throughout which present interesting and challenging opportunities. S

    Cons

    Geographically restricted to central London mostly and heavily focused within Financial Services industry. Senior management need to engage more with their staff.

    I have been working at Resource Solutions

    Pros

    I get to work with a portfolio of really interesting client brands on cutting edge projects. It's a great place to be challenged. Never gets boring as there's always something new to work on.
    As an employer, they're also really understanding of my need to work flexibly.

    Cons

    No real downsides to working here - I'm really enjoying it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think we need to work on our internal communications a bit more.
