  1. "Fantastic team - also great for first-time recruiters!"

    I have been working at Parkhouse Bell full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great to build a first-time recruitment career - they are more than willing to train people with transferable skills and the willingness to put the work in, and the team is genuinely supportive.

    Not a stereotypical recruitment culture within the team - everyone is open and honest. You can count on support when you need it, and it's constructively competitive. Management also works hard to build these values in the team, especially when making new hires.

    Integrity is very important, with a commitment to 'doing what you say you will do' - both for clients and candidates.

    Cons

    Still a smaller, growing company, with career progression linked to company growth.

    I have been working at Parkhouse Bell full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have worked within the recruitment sector for nearly 10 years and Parkhouse Bell is the first agency I have worked for which I have felt appreciated, be myself and that I can see a long and developing career with them. The team are fantastic and we genuinely all support each other and drive each other to do well. Recruitment is not the easiest of careers so having a team and management who are with you through challenging times truly means a lot. We have an open-door policy and senior management who actually recruit and understand the market as well as being experts in our sector, this helps enormously when we need advice and guidance within our roles. Not only a happy work environment we have excellent benefits of holidays, a commission structure that is strong and fair as well as great incentives. We have all recently returned from a Spa and Golf weekend. Our training is constantly refreshed so we are able to be the best that we can be. Not only have we had team training but all of us have had an external one on one coach helping us develop and bring out our true potential. We are all treated with respect and know each other’s strengths which overall makes us a successful team and a nice environment to work in, we also work closely with our international offices and have the option of working abroad.

    Cons

    Still growing and seeking more people to join our team to maximise our true potential

    Advice to Management

    Never change the management style, we have a happy working environment

    Pros

    Since working for Parkhouse Bell I've been delighted to be part of a fun, energetic and very engaging employer who reward hard work and strong values. When you come to work you notice very quickly that they are a company who have an open ear to best practice and will always listen to reason when it comes to shaping both personal and company progress no matter how radical the idea. With industry expertise difficult to match, anyone part of the PhB family will feel an important member of a continuously growing business and will enjoy the journey as a solid group of friends as well as colleagues.

    Cons

    Very few to note and can often be seen as a positive, but the size of the company is small and compact in it's current form, however I find that this means instant recognition for good work and personal progression is seen as a priority in line with long term growth.

    Pros

    Owner led organisation with a very clear, strategic approach to senior level recruitment. Excellent training and progression routes but most importantly Parkhouse Bell are true industry experts and are widely regarded as the gold standard organisation to approach for Employability, Skills, Health, Justice and Youth appointments.

    Industry leading commission structure and a collegiate approach to rewarding great business behaviors

    Great team of people - fair, intelligent and truly passionate about excellence in everything we do.

    Team incentives for holidays - we've just come back from a spa and golf weekend

    International company - we have offices in Dubai, Scotland, London and Brisbane and welcome employees who wish to work across our different international businesses

    Cons

    We are still growing and need to build the team to fulfill our true potential
