    Pros

    Very supportive environment with new trainees being brought in and given the time, space and structure to develop without the constant pressure you can get when working with some of the companies competitors.

    Team ethos is ingrained in the culture of the business with everybody collaborating on each others projects / tasks.

    Good commission structure that rewards consistency.

    Strong management team that treats employees fairly and allows everyone the space to work in their own style without being micromanaged.

    Unlike other agencies there is NOT a culture of everybody working late and checking e-mails during evenings and weekends, though some do choose to do this work/life balance is very important and this would NEVER be enforced or expected of anyone.

    Cons

    As with any agency in recruitment the work can be frustrating and difficult. Though very rewarding when the effort is put in, you need to be prepared for a hard slog at the beginning and definitely someone who focuses on long-term goals and not a quick win in the short-term.

    I have been working at Douglas Jackson full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Douglas Jackson offers an autonomous and empowered working environment for it's managing partners, consultants and support colleagues. We work with a large number of global and UK brands, leading organisations, as well as developing and start up companies. We employ business and recruitment professionals, as well as offering a learning environment for trainee consultants and resourcers. We support our customers both clients and candidates to deliver highly effective, proactive recruitment solutions and search assignments across the customer contact industry.

    Cons

    As an independently owned boutique recruitment supplier, expectations are high, as well as the trust and empowerment the company gives you, you also take on a high level of responsibility for delivery and for some this exposure and level of accountability can be too much. That said the business give you a great deal of support and opportunity to help your succeed and be successful.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on developing the business and brand and looking at opportunities to grow, continue to develop flexible working opportunities to retain and develop talented individuals and offer working solutions for the future, which will support the growth of the business.
