PROS Nice people and an excellent culture. Probably helps if you're younger and into the heavy drinking environment though, what you'd expect in recruitment. Benefits package is good, once you start billing well Trusting Good leadership from board level CONS Starting salaries for a graduate are very low compared to others in the market Regular hours are 8.30am-6.30pm which is already 10 hour day, but if you don't put in additional hours on top of that EVERYDAY you will be looked down on Managers do not lead by example, always told "get on the phone" but managers there are seldom seen to do this themselves Do not treat everyone equally - big billers = get away with anything
Good culture if you drink
"Get on the phone" environment; long hours
Avoid at all costs. Terrible culture internally especially in Nottingham. Will push consultants into their negative culture join in or get out. Flippant... Unprofessional... Huge culture around drinking and drugs. No overtime yet hours in excess of 60 expected weekly.
If you want to be bullied, work 12 hours + per day and spoken to like an idiot on a daily basis by the Directors (if you are based in Nottingham) then this is the place for you. Huge drug and drinking culture and frowned upon if you don't join in.
Long hours, bullying, high pressure, sworn at and called names across the office.
Great office environment great people always willing to lend a hand where needed. Values employees and family work life balance. Of all the companies I have contracted with I give them a 5 star. 🥳
Free breakfast snacks and great team socials
Can’t think of any
I found SF Group totally incompetent. They kept contacting me regarding jobs way below my skillset. They also asked far too many personal questions which made me feel uncomfortable. Do not use them
Incompetent and dont listen to candidates needs
Absolutely terrible. After two weeks of great contact they basically disappear on you. Try applying to jobs you see through them and chase your account manager and they ignore you! The only time the want a "catchup" is to check they can still keep you on their books. Would NOT recommend at all, far better agencies out there with staff that know what they're doing.
Absolutely no pros
AVOID THEM!! If you want a job they aren't the agency to spend your quality time on
I worked with them for over 4 months. I worked really hard every chance I got. But whenever I needed help or to speak to my consultant they would never get back and I got blamed in the end. Company is not structured to help you throughout your work time so no point joining tthem
Having used the SF Group to help me find work I was left thoroughly disappointed. I was asked to meet a member of their team to fill in paperwork and discuss options on a number of occasions and the individual that was meant to meet with me never turned up. When I contacted said person they would always blame me even though I had sat waiting in the location for over an hour each time. When they did eventually secure work for myself I was unfortunate to have fallen unwell and needed time off. The employer I was with was fine with the time off required but the SF Group recommended the client let me go. Throughout the whole time I dealt with them they showed nothing but unprofessionalism.
Bad management, rude
