We take the career ambitions of our people very seriously, and do everything possible to support our staff in reaching their personal goals.
Whether you are an experienced recruitment consultant, just starting out or work in a function such as finance or marketing, we encourage you to learn and develop by providing a challenging but very supportive environment.
Formal in-house training programme
Recruitment consultants have a structured, ongoing training programme. Written and delivered by a dedicated trainer with much input from the Directors, modules are selected from a menu of options. Topics include business development, hiring and interview skills, client relationship management and regular systems training.
Informal colleague and manager training
Each new starter will work together with their manager, team or assigned consultant on a daily basis. Work shadowing, regular one to ones and team meetings, systems and procedures training are all part of this process. We actively encourage our team to seek advice from experienced colleagues and managers within the business.
Birkbeck university qualification
For consultants working within our banking teams, we fund the Birkbeck University Diploma in financial markets and derivatives.
We have a formal programme specifically to develop leadership and management skills. New managers will also have direct and open access to all senior management for mentoring and advice.
If you have a particular interest or need for additional training, we’ll evaluate it and seek out a suitable course. People in our Operations, Finance and Marketing departments who don't attend the consultant-focused internal courses often choose specialist courses in their area.
We offer support for people striving to achieve recognised professional qualifications. If the qualification is relevant to your job, you may be eligible for financial help, and study leave is also available. We currently have people working towards accountancy and HR qualifications.
