    Pros

    Strong culture and team mentality bread from day one with various team building activities and team contribution KPI's. Heavily invest in development of employees and strive to get you earning you full potential.

    Cons

    Lack of microwave in the office! No cigarette breaks during the day. KPI driven although this does create results.

    Advice to Management

    Get a microwave to add to the fully stocked kitchen. Would be nice to have warm food without paying Baker street prices for the privilege

    I worked at Certus Recruitment Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Work life balance is good, and commission structure as good as most companies and amongst the recruiters there is a decent atmosphere.

    Cons

    Senior management is awful. Bullying culture steams from the CEO who will seem a nice guy for the first few weeks.

    Advice to Management

    Learn some people skills.

    Certus have worked really hard this year to create a culture based on learning, development and self improvement.

    Keep focusing on the development of our team and the rest will look after itself.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere, everyone is well do-to, motivated and have a strong work ethic..
    Huge exposure to candidates and clients alike.
    If you have a strong work ethic with the right attitude, you can thrive and in turn is encouraged and rewarded.

    Cons

    No microwave.. is situated in the centre of fast-food capital. You will likely put on weight.

    Beer fridge could do with a bit more variety.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing.

    I worked at Certus Recruitment Group full-time

    Pros

    Young, fun, work environment. It's great to go for a drink at the pub after work. Some good personalities work here. Quick progression because there is lot of turnover so you can climb to management/gain accounts quickly.

    Cons

    Lunch times are so short (30mins) and that's the only break for the entire day. It can be really exhausting. Very little training and support. You need to impress immediately or you'll be sacked and you will feel insecure in the job for the first month or so. Better management is needed - it feels like they 'tell' you to do something rather than 'ask' you. You need to ask for pay rises because sometimes they fail to recognise hard work.

    Advice to Management

    More one to one meetings with staff members will ensure better communication and stronger relationships.
