Featured Review

Former Employee - Recruitment Consultant

I worked at Hays full-time for more than a year

Pros

- Great Training, improved market/industry knowledge, collaborative work environment

Cons

A lot expected in regard to targets, sometimes slightly unrealistic

Current Employee - Business Manager

I have been working at PageGroup full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Michael Page offers great training and development, it can take your career in a number of different directions and to a number of different locations. The Dublin office is small and unique in that... you can focus on billing and making bonus! You also have the creative license to take on temp and perm and choose your industries within your discipline across the Island of Ireland. We have great craic as a team and celebrate success with breakfast clubs, dinners/drinks and loads of internal incentives to ensure the sales environment is motivating and rewarding.

Cons

Recruitment is not for everyone - we are a sales company so you do have to have a sales mentality. Page Group will support where necessary, around training and development but if you are not... motivated or energised by making money and business development then the job is not for you.
