Great agency, excellent culture

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I've been with Skills Alliance for about 2 years, having worked at 2 other agencies previously.Excellent, autonomous environment that is entirely supportive. You're required to work hard and produce results, but they provide all the tools you need to succeed. Great team culture as well.

Fun, meritocratic environment

One of the best places I've worked at. Strong culture, especially for new grads, with work drinks every friday and the holiday incentives are great. People are definitely work hard play hard, the commission structures great so everyone puts a graft but celebrate together after wins. Everyone actually cares about what they do here which is pretty rare in recruitment. Keep doing what you're doing!

Pros

Rewarding sector, uncapped commission, good holiday, good incentives like ibiza trips lunch clubs etc, duvet days are good, nice company culture

Cons

You're expected to work hard but thats the nature of the job

All my colleagues are here for the same reasons, to work in a fun environment, have quick career progression and earn well while working is a fast paced and exciting environment. The ceo is brilliant as is my manager.

Market leader

Skills Alliance is a great place to work, the UK team is made up of a mixture of experienced consultants and recent graduates who are experts in their vertical. They are market leaders with a great reputation and exciting clients, they also work globally - with Europe and the US.There is a culture of working hard, competition, pushing each other and being rewarded for it. The hours are long as with any recruitment job but the rewards and incentives are worth it. The company has excellent training program for graduate and senior hires. The management and dedicated trainer offer the opportunity to develop, progress and improve people's skills and it's a supportive environment to work in. The team is also very stable with a lot of people being there for 5-10 years.

Pros

Commission, incentives, career porgression
