I have been working at Venn Group full-time
The training is great from day one and even if you have no previous sales experience you are able to get on well because of the guidance and support you receive.
The team environment is also really beneficial as you are all working together and are able to help one another when required.
In this job you do need to be very motivated, driven and ambitious for money or career progression, if you aren't then this may not be the right environment for you.
Advice to Management
Continue to invest in the training and development of your staff
I applied online. I interviewed at Venn Group.
1 - Applied online and got a call from the lovely Jonny the same day, had a quick chat and scheduled a telephone interview.
2 - Telephone interview was relatively simple, standard questions (why recruitment, why Venn Group)
3 - Interview with a Manager (mine was at the Birmingham office with Sarah and she was lovely. Once again, wasn't difficult, talked generally about my CV, reasons for wanting to go into recruitment and what I knew about the job)
4 - Have been invited back for another interview with one of the senior managers - hasn't taken place yet but from what I've been told so far, it will involve discussions regarding my motivations to go into recruitment and potentially being put on a desk for some sort of work trial
Main advice would be to be confident and friendly, they want to know that you'll not only be a good consultant but also be a good addition to the team!
