Here at FGS we are always on the lookout for great members of staff to join our team. If you are considering a career change or are looking for a new challenge, here’s 5 reasons why FGS is a great place to work…
1.We have a clear career pathway
You’ll be able to go as far as your passion and determination will take you. For our senior level roles, we prefer to recruit from within so the sky is your limit. From a Trainee Recruitment Consultant all the way through to an Associate Director, there really is no limit.
2.We have a fantastic commission structure
We understand that money is important therefore we pride ourselves with having one of the best commission structures in the business. Utilising their experience within the industry along with benchmarking alongside fellow recruiters, our directors have come up with what we believe to be a generous and rewarding scheme.
In addition to this, we hold ‘Dream Wall’ competitions where you have the chance to win your dream item up to the value of £500.00 just for hitting your target that quarter.
3.We have a great benefits package
How does a half day on top of your birthday, office closures at Christmas (on top of your annual leave), casual dress, free breakfasts, drinks and snacks, discounted cinema tickets, discounted gym membership, a free TasteCard, discounted days out and retail discounts at major retailer’s sound? Great? Well we offer all of this plus a lot more as part of our benefits package here at FGS.
4.We fully support flexible working
Flexible working is a key benefit here at FGS and when we say flexible working, we really do mean it. Whether you need to work one day at home, work a reduced number of hours to fit around childcare or family commitments or have flexible start and finishing hours, we would be happy to discuss it. However, those joining our Trainee Academy Program do need to join us full time for the first six months whilst in training but after that we are more than happy to come to an arrangement to suit all parties.
5.We have funky, open plan offices
We know how important it is to enjoy where you work and the environment you work in has a big impact on that. You won’t find rows and rows of stuffy cubicles here. We pride ourselves on our funky office space with wall decals, floor to ceiling windows, music playing in the background and a bright red fridge filled with yummy food and drink.
Don’t just take our word for it. Here’s what our employees say…
"Everyone’s left to run their own desks however support is always there if needed. Billy and Michelle are always looking at ways to help me improve and develop, with ongoing training and courses to go on.
It’s a great family environment and everyone gets on with everyone. Each person has a role to play in their success and we are rewarded very well with the best commission structure I know of in the market, top that with free breakfast / snacks and the red bull fridge". - Dan, Head of Online Media
"I started at FGS in July 2015 and in a short space of time, I already felt like I’ve been working here for years. I love that I felt like part of the team after just a few weeks.
There is not a hint of micro-management. Everyone’s left to run their own desks however support is always there if needed. The snack bar is pretty good too although be prepared to put on weight within the first six weeks! Don’t say we didn’t warn you!" - Louise, Marketing Manager
So how does this all sound? Great huh! Even if we are not actively advertising roles to join our team, if you think you would be a great fit, send us over your CV and if we feel the same, we’ll have a chat.
