    Advice to Management

    Due to relocating to America, today marks my last day at Search Consultancy and it really has been amazing! I feel so fortunate to have worked for such a great company, it’s clear to see why Search is recognised as one of UK100 Best Companies to Work for. From my induction and training to moving on to our Office Services Division and later our Call and Contact Sales and Service Division, the support and guidance I...

    I have been working at Search Consultancy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Having started a couple of months ago in the Leeds office. Having previously working for 2 small agencies, it's refreshing to come to a recruiter that does things properly! Everything has a proper structure and process, staff are looked after and properly trained from the get-go, put up in hotels with food payed for etc. Since I've started I've had 3 separate training courses, (4 day, 3 day and 2 day) plus multiple webinars...

    Cons

    It's still early days so I've not really experienced any. Staff turnover is a little high but that just recruitment. It's hard work, stressful and not for everyone!

    Advice to Management

    I have heard one or two people mentioned (in Leeds) their annual targets are a little unfair/achievable, despite having huge growth year on year. I've heard that some people are looking to leave based on the fact they have not been fairly rewarded for their yearly growth as they narrowly missed their target. There needs to be a fair financial reward for peoples hard work or they'll simply go to a competitor. Everyone...

    I have been working at Search Consultancy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    My role allows me to travel to all the different branches of Search across the UK and I can honestly say that in every office the people are happy, friendly and so incredibly welcoming and helpful. Recruitment can be a tough industry but I you can see that the staff genuinely care about their candidates and clients. They also really know how to celebrate their staff's successes, not just with large awards nights and high...

    I have been working at Search Consultancy full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    The Training really is top notch; it gave me the best possible start for someone with absolutely no experience in sales or recruitment and was definitely not based on 'tickbox' training In my 12 months here I have seen significant changes come from what employees asked for and wanted - slightly shorter working hours, dress down every Friday etc - shows the higher powers really do listen to what we want Great working...

    Pros

    Fantastic Training course. I have been in the industry for nearly 20 years and I was very impressed and challenged by the content of the course. Very worthwhile and far exceeded my expectations. The team are great and if anyone is considering a recruitment role. Here at Search they will ensure you are fully prepared for the rigours of the job.

    Cons

    None so far - none expected!!

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Search Consultancy full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I found the content interesting and engaging and the format was very much designed to ensure inclusion of all the attendees and was successful in this. All the trainers had amazing industry experience in a variety of roles and this was obvious, their delivery was flowing and natural and albeit structured allowed for natural breaks and for any questions to be answered throughout without disrupting the schedule.

    Cons

    I honestly cannot fault the training, I was pleasantly surprised at how receptive I was to it.

    Advice to Management

    Managers need to fully support and develop their staff when they come back from training , it is often the case that people are left to their own devices and not given all the tools they need to succeed.
