NonStop Recruitment – Why Work For Us?

NonStop Recruitment, one of the fastest growing recruitment firms, has an equal passion for connecting top talent with top employers as it has for training and developing top talent for itself.

As a leading name in European recruitment within the pharmaceuticals, medical devices, chemicals, care, education, technical, and digital sectors, we are continually striving to raise the bar of recruitment industry standards. As part of that, we are dedicated to continuous training and development for our employees.

Comprising a diverse range of nationalities, cultures and personal backgrounds, we have created a highly rewarding, genuinely meritocratic working environment where every employee knows they are part of something special and all are supported on their personal journeys to find success.

And we want our people to have the best possible working environments too, which is why we have a range of stunning offices across Europe including on the 32nd floor in London’s Canary Wharf, making us the highest recruitment consultancy in Europe, and Prague’s Danube House, which you will be able to spot in James Bond’s Casino Royale.

The Prague office is also home to our award-winning recruitment training academy where a new group of ‘high potential’ trainee recruiters join us each month to begin their own international careers. Once passing the basic training and proving they are on the path to success, they will be able to choose which of our offices across Europe they want to work from.

Our industry unrivalled in-house training team provides personalised support to each trainee while more senior recruiters provide coaching and mentoring.

The training academy, and the company as a whole, is supported by our dedicated in-house Quality

Assurance team which takes an objective, data-driven view of our practices to ensure employees are developing the right skills, and help them stay on the path to success. This function, unique within the recruitment industry, also means we know our people provide nothing but the very best, ethical service.

  • Mentoring culture; continual training and development
  • Genuine meritocracy; long term careers
  • High rewards and industry-unrivalled commission structure
  • International career
  • Opportunity to experience different cultures
  • Fast career progression, including a Business Accelerator programme

As a recruitment consultancy, we understand talent is at the forefront of every successful business and that is why we continually invest in our employees with training and development and why we have fostered a mentoring culture to help everyone take a step up in their careers.

This is supported by an objective performance improvement programme that helps employees identify their hurdles and what they need to do to overcome them to achieve their goals.

NonStop has grown organically – all our recruiters, including team leaders and managers joined with no prior experience, as did some people in our operations team. We believe in meritocracy, which means your career will progress, should you want it to, to management level and beyond based purely on your skills and mentality regardless of your personal background. We strive to help you and your career progress as quick as you would like and therefore provide training and development, coaching and mentoring throughout. Our Business Accelerator programme provides intense mentoring to support our highest achievers to develop faster.

As a NonStop employee, you will be part of a company that celebrates your achievements and rewards your individual contribution to our business with packages designed to equally reward our geographically diverse workforce.

Our recruiters receive an industry unrivalled, uncapped commission structure on top of a competitive base salary.

Exceptional performers are rewarded with five-star treatment including yearly trips abroad and quarterly lunches.

Those on our Business Accelerator model – which supports our highest performers achieve even more – are rewarded with significant bonuses including supercars.

What else is on offer?

  • Relocation assistance for when you move to Prague to begin your career, move offices, or simply just move house
  • Company-wide parties, with all employees gathering in one location
  • Gym memberships
  • Internal social clubs, running events from whisky tasting and poker nights to day trips away

Our Culture and Values

Committed to organic growth, creating a truly meritocratic culture and developing the most rewarding career in the recruitment industry, NonStop’s ethos is best summed up by our motto: Develop, Grow, Succeed.

Develop: In addition to formalised training and development, you’ll receive coaching and mentoring from more senior colleagues, ensuring individual and company knowledge and experience is passed on to new generations of NonStop colleagues.

Grow: Utilise the skills and knowledge you have developed to lead by example and motivate those around you. Inspiring others to achieve their personal best means they, you and the business grow.

Succeed: As each person learns to develop and grow themselves and others around them, new layers are added to the business, new people are promoted and everyone involved finds success.

    I have been working at NonStop Recruitment full-time (Less than a year)


    People join for different reasons, or find themselves being motivated by different aspects of the experience over time.
    At the start, the training & development can be seen as the most valuable, coming in with no work experience and developing some of the most useful, transferable skills, such as negotiation, sales and business development.
    The chance to live abroad and experience Prague/Europe is also pretty unique, not many companies would offer relocation assistance to graduates without experience.
    Later the financial rewards coming from being successful, which is much higher than most standard roles not requiring a specific background, or even other recruitment firms.
    Recognition from clients & candidates also became a big drive for performing in the job - it's a positive experience to match someone to a role they really like.
    Finally the community itself, which celebrates everyone's success and pushes every individual to give their best is probably one of most unique I've seen/heard from any other company and is probably one of the major reasons retention remains high for those who have worked at NonStop for more than a year or so.


    Roles requiring alot of communication and pro-activity do not suit everyone. Potential applicants need to really think about their strengths & weaknesses and if they are really up to the challenge. If so, the rewards are the limitless.
    Development & support are available throughout but motivation, perseverance & resilience are needed to do well in this job - people without this will most likely struggle. Ability to take feedback is also key, otherwise development is impossible.

    Advice to Management

    Management team is strong, advice would just to keep listening to employees and keep being creative in their approach to keeping people motivated. The communication of business strategy is also something working well and should continue.
