Career highlight so far

How has JCW Group helped your progression

From day one I have had incredible training support and been given the opportunity to run my own 360 recruitment desk. Being with Cybernetic Search since launch, I’ve had the freedom to pursue business without any restrictions and the business has supported me throughout many tough times. But after months of practice refining my pitch, building a quality candidate database, and ultimately coming to the conclusion of focusing on placing technical sales people, my desk has flourished.

Biggest lesson learnt

Always ask questions, and often it’s the hardest questions that are the best questions.

Why is JCW Group different

JCW is different because we do not compete with each other, we help each other to be better as a team. The most important thing for us is that our team is successful, because when we achieve that, every single person is also successful. You don't see that very often, especially in recruitment.

Why is JCW Group different

We have a ‘big enough to deliver but small enough to care’ mentality and that shines through in how we approach customer service to our clients and candidates. The relationships that we build are real relationships and we care about partnering with them. That creates a unique level of trust with our clients and candidates.
