    I worked at Fawkes & Reece full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Nice offices in Central London

    Cons

    Management barely have a clue of what is going on. Extremely high turnover off staff due to consultants not being given a chance, also you are given a spec list which probably wont have been touched for over a year. Management don't hit their own targets, which gives no motivation for consultants.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your staff better and improve your staff turnover by investing time to train your consultants.

    I worked at Fawkes & Reece

    Pros

    I worked at F&R for best part of 4 years' - My first job in sales and was an excellent place to learn the meaning of hard grafting and putting the hours in. Any sales job is about making money and more than likely if you don't make the numbers you are not going to succeed. I was taught well and was given the support I needed whilst I was there. They have experienced directors and team leaders and some excellent consultants

    Cons

    Same cons as most workplaces: crap coffee, 1 office idiot and too many Gooners

    I have been working at Fawkes & Reece full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    A very well-organised business who offer their employees not only a great career path, but the opportunity to earn a lot of money along the way. Our Directors have all been there and done it, and are very hands-on and supportive to all of their staff, from Trainee right up to Senior Management. Loyalty and hard work are always rewarded, new starters will benefit from a tailored training programme to their individual...

    Cons

    Directors demand commitment and hard work to maintain the values that the F&R brand stands for, but this is far from a con, those who go do not show the proper commitment will not make it here, no fault of the company, who are always willing to invest in driven people. Hard work always pays off, laziness is not tolerated.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    I worked at Fawkes & Reece full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I joined the business and it was my first sales job and job in recruitment. I found it too hard and didn’t pass probation. They was fair with me, but I would have liked to have stayed for longer. The Director even sent me an email once I left, which was nice as he didn’t have to. They do have high expectations and I do think it is a great place to work. I wanted to stay I am not bitter as they were right about what they...

    Cons

    Canvassing is tough when you aren’t confident, I also couldn’t grasp head hunting so I found getting new candidates v difficult. If you are confident on the phone then you will be fine

    I worked at Fawkes & Reece full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    There's loads. They give me a voucher on my birthday, you get a proper lunch break, which in sales is unheard of. Best offices ever. Trips abroad although I didn’t secure a place. Early finish on a Friday!! I worked at Fawkes & Reece for under a year, after joining without any recruitment experience. In the time I was there I received excellent training and support throughout the time I was there. The culture...

    Cons

    You have to work hard and they do expect excellence! If you are lost or struggling you have to ask for assistance, but if you do it is there!
