At Morgan McKinley, our mission is to go beyond. That’s why we offer competitive salaries, work flexibility, benefits and so much more!


Purpose
Here Purpose isn’t a buzzword or a bandwagon we happened to hop on. It’s baked into our culture as our guiding principle. We’re here to improve lives: one colleague, one client, one candidate, one community at a time.


Reward

Our reward and recognition system is unique within the industry. Not only do we offer a competitive commission structure, but top performers enjoy five-star experiences such as overseas trips and luxury hotel stays. We also use any excuse for a party!

When you work with us we also work for you. This means ongoing training and development opportunities tailored to your career path, and a progression plan structured around your objectives.

Our culture is what sets us apart. We pride ourselves on a social, collaborative environment that celebrates performance and supports employee well-being. We also believe in giving back. In the past two years, we’ve raised over €750,000, volunteered more than 8,000 hours and supported over 200 charities through our Morgan McKinley Million challenge.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Morgan McKinley.

    Interview

    1-Telephone interview with internal recruiter after applying on line.
    2-Face to face with team leader and manager, basic interview. CV breakdown, why recruitment, why MMK etc...
    3-Behaviour analysis questionnaire via email, to see if you are suited to pressures that come with recruitment and to gauge how you will behave in different scenarios.
    4-Presentation and interview with manager and director. During this you have to demonstrate how you will source candidates.

    The interview process isn't so bad if you are well prepared. Have a good understanding of recruitment before hand. Also understand that you are applying for a sales role, they are looking for people with solid sales skills.

    Found that the internal recruiter and the guys conducting the interviews were not singing off the same hymn sheet at times in terms of what was involved in the role. Also found that the director had no interest in the presentation during 3rd round, checked her phone a few times which was a bit off putting. But all in all it was a pretty average interview interview experience, they all seemed like decent people.
