Blast off

Within your three months you'll attend our five-day induction. We've made it as fun and interactive as possible - no death by PowerPoint. It's run by our very own team of Learning & Development whizz kids. They've lived and breathed the world of recruitment and they're ready to share their top tops and industry secrets.

There's no sitting quietly in the back row, expect a high-energy welcome to our world where you'll get to learn new techniques and practice live calling in a supportive learning environment. You'll get to meet lots of other new colleagues as well as some of the most senior people in our business, so it's a great opportunity to make a good first impression. Whilst it's much more fun that your old school days, there will be some reading and homework involved to give you that crucial head-start.

Reach for the stars today and join us.
