“I joined PRG because I had heard some great things from my peers about the culture and ambition of the organisation. When I met the directors, it was clear that they had a vision for where they wanted to take the company and a clearly defined strategy to get there.
Having been with the organisation for two years, I am delighted to say that everything that I was promised has been delivered. The targets are challenging, but there is ample support for everyone within the business to achieve their personal and professional objectives, and it’s refreshing to see people being treated with respect and as individuals. For inexperienced hires, we are lucky enough to have the best training and development plan that I have ever seen in a recruitment business. And for those joining with experience, this is the best place to hone your craft and develop your skills while also having the opportunity to bring your ideas to the table, knowing that they’ll be listened to so that you can help the business grow.
I cannot speak highly enough of the culture. It’s a very professional, but also fun and positive working environment. That’s a delicate balance to achieve, but PRG does it superbly. If you want to build a career in a recruitment firm where you have a voice, and where you also want to enjoy working with some of the top talent and best management in the industry, then PRG should be on the top of your list.
You only have to look at what has been accomplished since inception to know that this is a company that’s seriously going places. They are incredibly ambitious, and they genuinely believe in bringing the best out of everyone that works in the organisation.”
“I joined iO six months ago having started my recruitment career two years previously with a different agency. Having known a few friends who were already in the business, I’d heard nothing but good things about the environment, work and people. After a couple of meetings with the directors, I knew I wanted to work for them and could see exactly what my career path would be, with the potential to become a key player in the business one day.
I’ve absolutely loved my first six months with the business and felt really at home at iO from day one. So far, I’ve managed to get myself on several lunch clubs, a day out to the races at Cheltenham and will hopefully be jetting off to Miami in the spring. The working environment is brilliant, and I love the people I work with. I genuinely can’t speak highly enough of it.
I’m looking forward to continuing my journey with iO very much.”
“Working for Panoramic Associates is definitely the best career choice I have ever made! After ten years of working in retail management, I really wanted a fresh challenge which allowed me the opportunity to learn, progress and actually be part of a company that really values my efforts.
Panoramic Associates have ticked all of these boxes and a lot more. They have been extremely accommodating in every situation, have always driven me to exceed targets and given me the support required to become successful.
This is a great company with an excellent positive culture, and I couldn’t recommend a better workplace!!”
“I joined PRG shortly after graduating from Bristol University, and I can honestly say that it was one of the best decisions I ever made. Amazing people, amazing culture and fantastic opportunities. Since joining the company nearly a year ago, I have been on two incentives abroad including Skiing in Morzine and cannot wait for what the future brings. PRG is an incredible place to work, and I feel so lucky to be a part of such a great team.”
“I joined PRG 6 months ago as the Client Engagement Manager and I can honestly say this is the best recruitment firm I have ever worked for. So why do I think it’s the best?
We have a great mix of people in the team, from those who have been billing to a very high standard for years, through to rookies who’ve just finished university and are entering this new exciting world for the first time. The training on offer is genuinely best in class and is offered to people at all levels. For the newer people in particular though, we have a very clear and measured plan to help them succeed.
The environment in any winning team is critical, and like the England team in last years’ World Cup, ours is built on energy and positivity. However, should we occasionally lose the ball, everyone is “all in” to win it back! This allows everyone in the team to really go for it, and we’re encouraged to be as creative as possible and to think outside the box when it comes to business development and candidate attraction.
PRG takes a truly client-centric approach, but we do a lot more than just service our clients and advise our candidates. We take the time to meet with them and to properly understand their needs. We fully immerse ourselves in our markets and have taken some really positive steps with a number of high profile ‘meet-ups’ locally. All the brands have lots more exciting plans on the events side in the coming months too.”
“I joined Panoramic Associates in 2012, and I can genuinely say that the past six years have been the most rewarding, exciting and challenging years of my life!
From day one, I’ve been provided with incredible training and continuous support, allowing me to develop as a consultant and in turn, experience amazing career progression and unbelievable financial rewards. I’ve progressed from a Graduate Trainee to Lead Principal Consultant with responsibility for helping to train and develop new team members.
The earnings I have achieved are beyond anything I could have imagined from a first job out of University, and I even managed to buy my own house in my second year! I feel very grateful to have been given the opportunity to join Panoramic Associates, and I genuinely can’t think of a better company to work for. I’m very much looking forward to continuing my career with Panoramic over the years ahead and can’t wait to enjoy even greater success in the future.”
“PRG’s approach towards promoting a healthy work/life balance for their workforce is truly refreshing.
Being a working mum with two children under the age of four, I have to balance all the familiar pressures of taking care of my family and nursery & school pick-ups etc. with ensuring that I deliver to a high standard professionally.
PRG have been very accommodating, and I really appreciate the stance they’ve taken. I’ve not only been able to structure my working week around my commitments at home, but they’ve also understood when I’ve found myself in situations where, for example, my children have been poorly, and I’ve needed a few days off to take care of them.
I’ve worked in the recruitment industry for over twelve years’ now, and I can honestly say that this has been the most supportive company I have come across by far. The flexibility PRG have shown has not only allowed me to return to work on terms which suit my personal situation, but which also enables me to continue to develop my career within the company.
I’m as ambitious now as I was when I started out in recruitment, and I’m really excited about all the things I can achieve career-wise within this business. And of course, my family mean everything to me, and I want to ensure that I can continue to be a great mum! Whereas working parents often used to have to make a choice between these two things, I feel genuinely fortunate to have joined a business which is fully supportive of my family and me, and one where I can enjoy the best of both worlds.”
