As a recruitment agency, we talk to hundreds of people every day, each with a unique perspective on what it means to be happy at work. As an employer, we take note – doing our utmost to create an environment that delivers something special for our own people. While the little things may differ, the general feeling remains the same: you want to be respected, remunerated and part of something bigger. Here’s how we ensure that’s on offer at Oliver James…

  • Progression

People value openness and honesty in a company, especially when it comes to their progression. Oliver James has a clear pathway for employees, laying out promotion timescales, benefits and salary expectations so you’re in the know from day one. But we’re also respectful of your opinion, with various career routes enabling us to play to both your strengths and ambitions.

  • Perks

People value more than just salary in a job, and benefits have a huge amount of sway in today’s job climate. We pride ourselves on amassing a wide range of work perks, from an hour and a half lunch break for gym goers to free drinks every Friday, group-wide events, Christmas closedown and private healthcare. It’s our way of building a remuneration package that considers every employee’s priorities.   

  • Training

People value the opportunity to upskill themselves; where some companies see that as employees taking their investment elsewhere, we believe it’s actually an incredibly powerful way to retain staff. Our in-house trainers will build an education programme around your goals, not only supporting your development but fostering a culture where your individual strengths add weight to our position in the market.

Oliver James is on the lookout for recruitment consultants with all levels of experience. Contact Hannah Villa-March today on +44 (0) 161 694 0827 for further details.
