Lovely people, good variety of work, nice offices
It was hard to progress due to size of company
Hey, Thanks for the great review. Pleased to hear you enjoyed your time here. Disappointed to hear that we could not offer you the career progression you needed. We are a small but fast growing company. The average tenure is over 5 years so most people get to grow and move up into new roles, but I also accept that is not always possible. Good luck with your new role. Thanks, Adrian co-founder

Great culture, excellent team to work with, visibility across all sides of the business so you feel that your voice is heard, great product to sell and we get to work with some great clients. Lots of support from management, especially in relation to career development.
Location requires you to be able to drive as not accessible by public transport. Also although there is a fairly equal gender split, there isn't a huge amount of diversity within the company. I think this could mostly come down to location but it would be good to see what the company is doing to close the diversity gap.Continue reading
Hi, Thanks for the great review. Everyone works hard to add to the culture here at hireful, so it's great to see that having a positive impact. Also great to hear your positive words about career development. We have a great office but yes unfortunately it is a little "rural". Your comments on diversity are fair. We have done some work on this area already but this has mostly focused around training staff to ensure we recruit in a fair and inclusive way. However, we recognise that we need to be doing more to attract a more diverse range of applicants and we are putting in some new initiatives starting from Jan 2023. We need to do better and we will do better in this area. Thanks Adrian co-founder

They listen to their employees and take everyone's opinion in to account. There is no hierarchy, everyone is important.
I honestly cannot think of one.Continue reading
Thanks for the review. Pleased to hear that you feel valued. We are only 60 staff big but growing, but we plan to keep listening to our staff to make sure we are moving in the right direction.

Good company values, helpful and kind employees. Great community to work in
There is a Small kitchen
Thanks for your review. Glad to see you are settling in well to life at hireful. We have a good track record of hiring people at the start of their career and helping them to grow. As for the small kitchen, I cannot disagree, but we have got some plans for some office updates so watch this space...

Amazing people, everyone is so friendly and accessible (including senior management) I have met some of my best friends here. Nice offices in a quiet location. Great managers who are willing to hear and try your ideas and really do want the best for you.
Salaries are quiet below industry average, so much so that even though I took a step down in responsibilities, it still came with a significant pay increase compared with hireful's salary. Whilst the rural location is lovely to work in, it would be very tricky to commute to if you relied on public transport.
Hey! Thanks for the positive review. Great to hear you enjoyed your time here and met some great friends. We've worked hard to build a great culture so it's great to hear feedback like this. We will also take on board your points about salary. This is not always easy to get right but we have a great team here and do our best to ensure that they are rewarded for the great work they do. Good luck in your new role.

Nice and friendly atmosphere Supportive managers
Career progression is limited Salary and benefits could be improved
Thanks for the review. Pleased to see you are enjoying working here. We have worked hard to ensure we have a great team and a great culture. It's been a challenging 18 months what with COVID/lockdown but we think our staff and managers have done a great job under difficult circumstances. I take on board your points about career progression and salary. We are a growing company who work hard to ensure this is a place where people can grow both in terms of their development and earnings. Our average length of tenure is almost 6 years. That said, we want to make sure everyone has a clear plan for how they can develop here so make sure you raise this with your manager. Thanks once again! Adrian McDonagh co-founder

I think hireful is a great place to work. In the most recent employee survery 97% of staff said they are proud to work at hireful. The values can be seen throughout the business - Helpful, fun, honest, knowledgeable and friendly.
Some roles do not have a clearly defined career path but as the business grows this provides more options.
Hi, Thanks for the review. This year's survey results were a pleasant surprise it has been a challenging year with remote working/COVID. We'll take on board your point about career development. This is always a challenge for smaller companies like ourselves, but most roles have really strong career development prospects (3/4 of our management team were internally promoted into their role).
