Hi, my name's Ellie and I'm a Consultant at Jonathan Rhys Recruitment.

In regards to training, what happened when you first joined? 

So, before my first day at Jonathan Rhys, Adam kindly sent me over some key points, that I could do some revision on so that I was familiar with the basics of the IT industry.

From my first day onwards, Adam provided extensive 1-2-1 training sessions but broken down into short sessions, so that I wasn't bombarded with too much information at once. He would then build on this each session, always relaying questions back to me, so that he could ensure that I understood what we were going through.

How did the training benefit you personally?

If it wasn't for the training that Jonathan Rhys provided, some aspects of the role could have seemed really daunting or complicated but with each session, breaking it down into simple steps, I was then able to digest all of this information and then put my own twist on things when I went back to my desk to work.

What advice would you give anyone looking to join?

Regardless of your recruitment experience, if any, with the simplistic training that Jonathan Rhys provides, you'll be on the right step to success from the very first day of joining, and then the training is always there whenever you need it, regardless of how long you've been at the company for.

Would you be able to summarise how 2021 was for the company?

2021 was a really successful year for the company. We had some amazing individual achievements but I think that maybe our biggest achievement was the fact that we were able to grow and bring through some young consultants, who had very limited experience before joining us, within recruitment.

We had three individuals who were able to achieve their first promotion within six months, so it does show that not only have we got some great individual talent but it also shows that as a company, we are able to help people develop and kick start their recruitment careers, which I think really important for the growth of Jonathan Rhys Recruitment.


What is the vision for 2022?

For 2022, Jon and I have set out a bit of a plan to grow the company. Although, we do want to do this organically and we want to do this in the right way. We're very conscious not to have a high staff turnover to ensure that everyone we bring into the business, comes in with the idea of genuinely being here for the long-term, and progressing their career within this company.

We want to get the sales floor that we have, filled up. We've got capacity for twenty people at the moment. There are currently twelve consultants on the floor, and the idea would be that hopefully by the end of this year, we have eighteen to twenty consultants on the floor, that are all more than capable of looking after customers and delivering to our accounts.


Can you tell us more about the roles currently available within the team?

We're hiring across the board for multiple positions. We are looking for people that want to kickstart their recruitment career, perhaps looking at graduates who are a little unsure about the direction to take their career or people who have worked within sales, who want to be rewarded better for their effort.

We're also looking for experienced consultants who we feel that there is a real gap in the market for. People that want an opportunity that can give them all the financial rewards that they would expect to see in London but give them an opportunity that's closer to home and more importantly cut down on the cost of that extensive travel, and gives them more of a work/life balance.
