If you’re currently working in recruitment, you’ll know that it can be an exhilarating and rewarding career. It can also be extremely high pressured, overly competitive, wildly unstable, and really not all that good for your work-life balance.
At SR2 we don’t run things that way. Mostly because we’ve been there and we didn’t like it. We’re all for success, we just define it slightly differently to the rest of the industry. So here’s a snapshot of what it’s like to work with us.
What we Offer
A people-first culture:
This is our founding value, part of our DNA, and something everyone we work with signs up to.
Forget thresholds; you’ll earn on everything you bill.
True work-life balance:
You don’t have to slog through a 60 hour week to be successful here. In fact, we’re big fans of the Friday 4pm finish and the occasional two hour lunch break.
Autonomy and accountability:
You’re an adult, so that’s how we’re going to treat you. We trust our team.
That said, we’ll also give you the coaching and support you need to thrive – all we ask for in return is hard work and passion.
Lunch clubs, early finishes, trips away, a bottle of bubbles – whatever floats your boat, we’ll look into sorting it out for you.
What we don’t offer
An onsite gym:
It’s 100 yards away, but if you pass your probation we will pay for your membership.
A beer fridge:
It’s on tap 30 yards away though, and if you deserve a beer at 4pm then off you go and enjoy it.
A ping pong table:
We’re not Google, and let’s face it – who actually plays ping pong on a regular basis?
The ‘World’s Best Commission Scheme’:
How would we prove that anyway? But ours is very competitive.
You bill, you earn. Which seems by far the fairest way to us.
Irrelevant KPI’s, spreadsheets, and anything else that makes an already tough job any tougher:
Well really, why would we?
Committed to Gender Equality
IT – it’s for guys, right? Well no, actually. We’re committed as a team to help support and improve gender equality within the IT industry. How? Glad you asked.
We have created a platform called “Women Rock” which you will find on our blog page on this site. Women Rock is our commitment to champion the amazing women we come across and we work with day-day. We want to share career stories from inspirational women in IT of all levels to help inspire the next generation.
We want to share successes and challenges of women in the industry and we want to speak with companies to share the amazing things they are doing to help attract, retain and promote their female talent.
We will also be running Women Rock meetups so keep an eye out for the next event and please come and join us. There are some amazing things going on in Bristol to aid and support diversity and Women Rock aims to bring them all together and to shout about it loud enough with the ultimate dream of making Bristol the most diverse city in technology by 2025.
Please take a read of the blog as we have shared some inspirational stories of some incredible women and some amazing companies that really stand out from the crowd when it comes to attracting, retaining and promoting their female talent.
Want to join us?
If you see the ‘me’ in ‘team’, this isn’t the right place for you. But if you get excited about fulfilling your potential alongside giving back, seeing others succeed and sharing your knowledge, then we’re going to be a good match.
Anything else you want to know? Just ask.
