Credit Controller (Former Employee) – Birmingham, West Midlands – 7 January 2018
Did not find that manager wanted to help you progress and would try to cause friction through the team. Managers also do not know when to praise achievement but never miss out telling you any fails. Staff are great to work with. Great benefits.
Key Accounts Manager (Current Employee) – London, Greater London – 4 May 2018
Good company, with good values, very different to most other staffing companies RH are above the rest in class and professionalism, however the work life balance is terrible the company hasn't moved with the times and the bonus scheme for rookies isn't very good.
Reputable Company, Huge Global Presence, Good Brand
Recruitment Consultant (Former Employee) – London, Greater London – 31 January 2018
Heavily KPI driven role Would suit a sales driven individual Personally thought it was a consultative approach but it was highly focused on performance than quality. Although is a global company to work for, great exposure. Advised to register candidates, heavy volume of registrations and not enough roles to consider them for. If you are looking for long hours and being micromanaged it is the right place.
Consultant (Former Employee) – Leeds, West Yorkshire – 31 August 2017
Very long hours, presentee-ism culture, sales people promoted to management. Some managers were brilliant. High targets, v cut throat. Good training though. Some people flourish if particularly thick skinned and very tenacious.
Training good, respected brand within industry
long hours, big targets, job insecurity if not hitting targets consistently
Associate Consultant (Former Employee) – Reading – 28 September 2017
Robert Half is a fantastic place to work. The job was exciting and engaging and their training schemes are so well detailed and put together. The management in combination with this training allows for people who are right for recruitment to flourish in a tough environment.
Administrator (Former Employee) – Warrington – 4 January 2013
During my time at Balfour Beatty, I was tasked mainly with creating databases with employee details, and ensuring all certificates etc were up to date and available.
Having never previously worked in HR before, this role offered a chance to build on my skill-set and knowledge of how HR systems work. It was also an opportunity to use and hone my organisational skills in another area of employment.
My co-workers were also mainly temporary staff, with strong HR backgrounds who helped me expand my working knowledge as well as providing exceptional training.
The most difficult aspect of this role was the reason I was employed, which was that there were employees who would be made redundant in the near future if no role could be found for them under the new management.
As I enjoy a challenging environment, where I can build on my skills and knowledge, I found this period of employment particularly enjoyable as it was a constant learning curve for myself.
Volunteer Worker (Former Employee) – Bedford Central Youth Volunteering Project – 7 July 2015
I volunteered in Bedford as part of the Central Youth Volunteering Project for 2 days. I worked in an office on a computer and I inputted individual's application forms into Excel Database sheet, this really helped me gain more IT knowledge and whilst doing the job I felt very much confident and it helped me boost my confidence in the work industry. Other jobs included filing by sorting sheets into organised folders, I also learnt how to photocopy from the photocopying machine, once I picked up how to photocopy I found it quite straightforward. Overall, being a part of The Central Youth Volunteering Project helps you to gain confidence in working and it helps you to interact with people who you work with.
Consultant (Current Employee) – London – 24 March 2015
Robert Half turns over $3.8 billion a year. Being part of a new recruitment business has developed my communication and personable skills, which I am now able to use in a transferrable way. My predominant role has been within project services. Developing relationships between myself and the client was crucial to this career, and thus successfully placing candidates.
I only worked for one week with the company I was placed with as they just had a large order from Morrison's and needed someone urgently until their permanent employee started. I was told the position would last for 4 - 8 weeks and was disappointed that it was only the one week as the company was a really friendly place to work in.
