I worked at Renaix full-time (More than 10 years)
Renaix is a small, owner-ran recruitment company where there is huge potential to build your own desk and niche. They excel at hiring young recruiters and giving them the framework, ethics and skills to become 360 degree recruiters, and there is the potential to move quickly into team lead roles, and become involved in training, mentoring and hiring. Great personal development perspectives, I transitioned into a senior role quickly, was client-facing almost immediately and saw good development opportunities, up to Senior Manager level.
Renaix is rare in the recruitment industry in that there is no long-hours culture, and they take a truly consultative approach to both clients and candidates, rather than treating them as commodities as so many competitors do.
There is also the possibility to define your own working space, and carve out a specialisation for yourself.
The bonus structure is very transparent and generous.
There are KPIs, as there are in almost any sales-driven environment, but if you're working hard and placing people then, in my experience, they became irrelevant.
The recruitment world is getting more and more difficult, with PSLs and internal recruiters making it ever more difficult to access the business leaders. This is not specific to Renaix, but something they should consider as they move forward.
The company would benefit from some investment in software.
Advice to Management
I left the company 2 years ago, so am unable to comment on it's current challenges or how they meet them, but I enjoyed my time there and learned a huge amount.
