      GCS Recruitment Response

      Thanks for taking the time to give us your feedback. Whilst I am pleased you have acknowledge some of the positives about a career at GCS. It’s a shame that the work/life balance wasn’t for you. Recruitment does involve long days and we try to be as transparent about that right throughout the interview process. Whilst there is no pressure to stay in the office beyond 6.30pm, we find that many of our consultants do so because that is the best time of the day to reach candidates. We appreciate that recruitment, like any industry, isn’t for everyone, but we always try and ensure everyone has a good work/life balance and that we have wellbeing weeks and increase holiday allowance with length of service to ensure we continue to strike the right balance.
