    I have been working at Eurostaff Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - The training provided is very helpful and well-conceived
    - The targets are achievable (you can make money here! )
    - Your results are really appreciated: both verbally and from a financial point of view. Besides the commissions, you can get a lunch at a fancy restaurant, holidays in exotic destinations, iPhones etc.
    - You can grow within the company in a short period of time if you have great results
    - The managers / team leads are very good (I am working with a Team Lead who encourages me and he wants me to be happy with my work all the time)
    - The number of holidays will be extended to 25 in the near future
    - There are flexibility and understanding from the team leads
    - You can travel in other countries for meeting your candidates or your clients
    - You have a lot of great people surrounding you, from whom you can learn

    Cons

    Nothing significant to mention so far

    Advice to Management

    Nothing to add so far.

    I have been working at Eurostaff Group full-time

    Pros

    - Structured learning, great L&D program where you are guided through a series of workshops to ensure you are fully confident with the processes within recruitment. Claire Reynolds leads these classes, she has many years experience, explains things in a simplistic format and is always on hand to answer any questions you may have.
    - There are different career paths to success - I guess the 'one fits all' approach does not apply to Eurostaff and each individual is really considered here which is great!
    - Incentives range from lunches in top restaurants, great trips abroad, pamper treatments, and individual incentives that you get to choose!
    - Fresh fruit daily
    - Monthly business meetings that round up activity with breakfast provided
    - Long gym lunches given after our new well-being taskforce were asked if we possibly could have longer lunches twice a week to work-out. Great to know you are actually listened to here!
    - Bright, open plan office space with coffee machines provided.
    - Learning and development section of office with laptops and a library of books, great to take away and have a read up on something to benefit yourself.

    Cons

    Long hours, but that is the same for any job where you want to do well and really rake in the cash. If you put the time in, the motivation and energy and ask as many questions as it takes to form great partnerships and business relationships the hours are worth it!

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to employees suggestions, makes such a difference and stands this company a part from other recruiters!

    Thank you for the positive review. As always, we hope to make the most out of the pros and improve on the cons where we can to make Eurostaff a better place to work.

    Appreciate the feedback.

    I have been working at Eurostaff Group full-time

    Pros

    Growing, strong training, excellent career paths, based in a central location (London Bridge) and works in a number of markets including IT, Finance, Engineering and Oil & Gas

    Cons

    The company is growing very quickly and maybe this would put some people off if you are looking to have a non-driven culture.

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

    Pros

    Young company and very ambitious
    Lots of different nationalities, not just British staff
    Lots of incentives for the 'Star' staff i.e. those that make the grade!
    Trips abroad
    Staff company brochure, so you can keep up to date with what's going on in the company
    You get to hear about everything here, so never left in the dark
    Lots of lovely fresh fruit daily, plus doughnut's and cakes for birthdays
    Early finish at 3pm on a Friday

    Cons

    Like many young companies with young people, you are rated on your looks - No joke!
    Honestly, I saw lots of men working, the women, too busy gossiping or looking online on tabloid websites
    Open planned warehouse style office - So no privacy what so ever!

    Advice to Management

    Concentrate on the work more ladies and stop judging people on their appearance. You are there to work not judge people.

    I have been working at Eurostaff Group (More than a year)

    Pros

    After a corporate takeover and the following management changes Eurostaff underwent quite a few very positive changes:
    - the old school management team has left and therefore, newer, more modern people are in charge
    - the focus is now a lot more on employee satisfaction, incentives and benefits are good (pension, private health, dental, optical, life insurance)

    Positive has always been:
    - you get an iphone normally in the first few months
    - every Friday we finish at 3PM. And we actually do. You work hard Mo-Thurs and Friday is more laid back
    - clothing is business but we have casual Friday
    - massage, manicure days
    - the markets we work in are very good and very interesting, most of them are on the continent
    - drinks on the company happen every couple of weeks (e.g. to welcome new starters)
    - positive working environment and friendly people
    - very good commission scheme (no threshold, very quick pay-out)

    Cons

    - in the sales section the hours are long, but that is the same in every recruitment company
    - more incentives for Rookies

    Advice to Management

    - make sure your team is always happy :)
    - not every top biller has management potential

    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Good commission scheme, a few high earners, friendly atmosphere

    Cons

    Poor management, mid-management not suitable for leadership roles. To driven by money rather than quality

    Advice to Management

    Stop focusing on developing high achieving consultants to managers, it's 2 different skill sets and they do not align, hence your massive turnover

    I have been working at Eurostaff Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Colleagues, on going training, support from management, good commission structure, achievable incentives, promotion structure outlined from first day, bi-lingual consultants, run your own business...the more you put in, the more you get out.

    Cons

    Work/life balance needs to be managed.

    Advice to Management

    Promotions could be achieved based on performance & managers decision, not just on set targets. Otherwise keep everything as it is!!
