We know what you’re thinking, there’s loads of recruitment companies out there, so why Aspire? If global offices, impressive commission and a jam-packed social calendar aren’t enough to persuade you, we sat down with our internal recruitment consultant Darren to find out more.
So here we have it, the answers to the questions you’d usually have to wait till you’re in the interview room to ask.
What’s the company culture like?
We’re reflective of the creative markets we recruit for and don’t like wearing suits. With flexible working hours, the high five club for top performers, and various social events throughout the year, we’ve got a healthy work-life balance here at Aspire.
What kind of clients will I get to work with?
Aspire have been recruiting in the sector for 25 years. We work with some of the biggest digital, media, marketing, research and content agencies around. But the list doesn’t stop there, we help a diverse range of businesses to build their in-house expertise, from well-known publishers to exciting tech start-ups to big brand businesses.
What will my team be like?
We have a number of specialist teams so your colleagues will be experts in their field, whether that’s Tech or Marketing. You’ll work with them, learn from them and probably have a drink or two with them on a Friday night (if you want to, of course).
What’s it really like working at Aspire?
It's a positive, proactive and supportive culture. People development is given high priority, something which I personally really value too. Training is tailored to individuals and I've seen just how much time and effort goes into making the training as effective as it can be.
There are also lots of resources and tools to help us do our job. Aspire invest in attracting the best candidates and clients, from marketing campaigns to LinkedIn licences and job boards. The existing Aspire network is considerable, we often find the perfect candidate is already known to Aspire.
What are the benefits on offer if I become an employee?
There’s lots! The specific benefits vary depending on location, but wherever you’re based, you can expect guaranteed commission, a wellbeing budget and individual training plans. We don’t believe in a one size fits all approach to work, so set everyone individual targets based on what they’re good at, and what they need to improve on.
Is there room for progression in the business?
Yes, definitely. We’ve developed four different career paths
to ensure all our staff can transform their careers at Aspire. Whether you’re a recruitment consultant or a talent consultant, you have the potential to develop your career as a manager or consultant.
Do you offer in-house training?
Absolutely! Our training is something we’re extremely proud of. When you start at Aspire, you won’t be handed a phone and left to get on with things. We prepare you for success in the best way possible - through our tried and tested training scheme. Whether you’re a graduate or have spent years working in the industry, we’ll get you up to speed on the Aspire way.
Is there the opportunity to transfer to one of your other offices?
Yes there are. We’ve already established offices in Hong Kong and Singapore and have big plans for the future. You’ll need to establish yourself in the business first, but if you dream of living and recruiting abroad, we’re definitely a good place to be.
