"The future success of the business is dependent upon the pipeline of future talent entering the building. We are fully committed to ensuring that the pipeline is strong. One of our biggest priorities with our new hires is that they make strong cultural fits for our business and have the determination and work ethic to succeed in the role. We value this considerably over qualifications or experience. For this reason, we make sure potential hires meet a range of people throughout the business so that they can gage what working here is really like, as much as we can get to know them." Ingrid Smejkal, Head of Talent
If you embark upon a career with RSG you will be part of a tailored training programme from day one which equips you for a successful and progressive career path. The training we provide is one of the key components in our high tenure rate for staff.
We always employ with the view to investing in staff who have the qualities necessary to enjoy a long career with us. for this reason we don't hold assessment days, we hire individually and only take on good cultural fits.
Our commitment to hiring in this way has resulted in us having an 84% retention rate of staff and this is something we strive to upkeep. Being forward thinking is a commitment to always making improvements and listening to what our staff have to say.
Dan Galstaun - Consultant
"Having been on a lot of training throughout my previous role, I have to say RSG's training academy is up there with the very best, if not the best. As soon as you walk through the door you're made to feel extremely welcome, giving a great first impression of the business, its goals and its culture. The training has the perfect balance of being informative and relaxed at the same time."
Hannah Waddington - Regional Manager
"It's never too late to change career paths. I initially joined RSG as a Relationship Manager, and spent a little time in the Academy to get a better understanding of how the company worked as a whole. Very quickly however, I realised I was doing something I really loved, and I've never looked back. It's always worth having a go; you never know where even the smallest opportunity will lead you."
James Knight - Principal Consultant, Finance
"If you have the desire and the drive, you can progress really quickly at RSG. Within 4 years, I progressed from an Academy Trainee to Principal Consultant, managing my own team. Don't be afraid of ambition; RSG will help you become whatever you want. All you have to do is choose."
Alexander Maropoulos Consultant
"The RSG Academy is an ideal platform for finding your feet in a fast paced, ever changing role. From Day 1, the Academy gave me the foundation to hit the ground running in whichever team best suits your skills, and allowed me to both identify and overcome challenges that came my way. The support and advice I received during my time there assisted me in understanding and appreciating the complexity of the Recruitment Process and the fundamentals that need to be in every single successful search. It absolutely helped mould me into the consultant I am today, and really gets you performing "the RSG way."
Zoe Haslett - Client Solutions Consultant
"I started as the front of house receptionist at RSG, and after a year I was considered for and offered the role of Client Solutions Consultant, which was encouraged by my manager at the time. I was trained for a few weeks before I officially moved over to the new team. I have now been in this role for 7 months and have been able to take on more responsibilities, and help manage 11 of 12 client accounts."
Orla Read Consultant
"I started working for RSG as Executive Support and Compliance Consultant. After nearly 2 years I realised I wanted to try something more challenging. I had many open conversations with different managers who helped to support me to take the leap as a recruiter. I joined the Academy in Bristol for a month and was given thorough training and support into a world that was completely new to me. Iíve now been a consultant for 8 months and the guidance is still behind me, along with continued training and advice."
Jonny Cast Consultant
"During my interview process, finding the right agency for me was critical. After experiencing other agencies trying to "sell me the dream" I decided that RSG would be the right company and cultural fit for me. The preparation and training I have been given throughout the Academy and ongoing has been crucial for my success. If you are looking to start a career in recruitment I would highly recommend RSG."
Janine Cumming Team Leader - APM
"RSG has been a great platform to progress with my career. It really is down to each individual how quickly they develop, there are plenty of opportunities within this growing company. The knowledge within the business is filtered through at every opportunity. I work within the Account Process Management team, where there is a strong emphasis on supporting each other, and working as a team. Everyone is happy to help their colleagues when needed."
