I have been working at La Fosse Associates full-time
La Fosse is a collegiate environment made up of very high performing individuals. You do find in recruitment people who dip in and dip out of the industry - La Fosse is a place for people who seriously want to build a substantial career in recruitment. The management team leads by example; you're not micro managed and you are given the tools and support to achieve. It helps that everyone has shares within the business - there is a real vibe that we're on a journey here. The people are great - we have lots of fun and hang out outside of work.
You need to be ambitious, hungry and high performing - if you're lacking in those areas you may struggle. You are paid very well here but you work for it; that doesn't necessarily mean long hours but it does mean you need to be efficient and smart in the way that you work and not all consultants find that easy to achieve.
Advice to Management
It would be good for La Fosse to get a bit more recognition as a brand; this could help the business all round.
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at La Fosse Associates (London, England (UK)) in November 2015.
Assessment day with around 14 others, very brief as explained previously in other reviews, self introduction - selected company pitch in a group - strengths and weaknesses. Constant consultant interruption in the background which was annoying, however the day was clear and well structured overall. Lasted around an hour and a half. Do not shy away or hold back, have to make yourself noticed as your given a very short time frame to prove yourself.
