Everyone’s version of a rewarding job will vary.  However, we’ll give you the support and development you need to have a job you feel you can be really good at and enjoy.  Money definitely plays a part but as well as financial rewards, incentives and a range of benefits, you’ll get a sense of pride working in a sector where you make a difference to society.


Our aim is to offer an environment and experience which encourages employees to be the best they can be – at work and beyond work.  A strong learning culture supports genuine opportunities for faster career progression.  Most of our managers started with us as trainees.  We thrive through fostering positive relationships, working together and sharing success.

For recruitment and managerial roles, a degree is desirable but not essential. For support department roles you may need a relevant professional qualification depending on the role and department you are applying for.

To join us as a Trainee Consultant no experience is necessary. Although it’s not essential, if you have had any kind of sales experience or worked in the education sector before you might find this useful. For managerial and support roles you will need to be able to demonstrate a clear understanding of the role you are applying for and success in a previous, related position that would help you thrive here in your new position.

This is where we start to build our relationship and work out if we’re the right fit for each other. The number of steps in our selection process may seem a little daunting at first but its designed to give you a real in depth experience of what it is like to work here. Its just as important for you to decide if we are a place where you can thrive as it us for us to assess your potential! Stage One – Introductory Telephone Interview Stage Two – Face to Face Interview Stage Three – References and Psychometric Tests (online) Stage Four – Branch Visit & Second Interview Stage Five – Final Telephone Interview with Operations Director

We will try to schedule your interviews and visits to fit in around you where we reasonably can but you may need to be flexible and join us on at least one occasion during the working day so that you can really experience what its like to work here. We would normally expect our full selection process to take no longer than 2-3 weeks.

With over 80 branches across the country we are bound to have an office location near you! We also offer great opportunities for those who wish to travel and work somewhere new in order to gain more experience and progress their career.
