"I'm really proud of my success – the people I've found work for and the companies I've found the right staff for."

We’re the world’s leading specialist recruitment company. What does that actually mean? Put simply, it's all about matching people to organisations.

Specialist recruitment means working within specific market sectors – for example, Accountancy, Information Technology, Construction or Retail. At Hays we call these sectors specialisms, and our consultants develop expert knowledge of these specialisms. After our industry leading training, our consultants use their expertise and market knowledge to help place the thousands of jobseekers we see every day in the right role with the right company, and to help those companies find the right staff for their vacancies.

Our entrepreneurial work environment means very soon after commencing a career with Hays, our consultants are managing their own business with their own client and candidate portfolio. They spend a lot of time in direct contact with senior business leaders and decision-makers. Understanding our clients and candidates needs and developing valuable lasting professional relationships is key to the success of our consultants and ultimately, our business.

Let’s be clear, you will be working in an incredibly demanding, commercial environment. Our consultants are expected to work well under pressure, to win and manage the most challenging assignments and to achieve results against demanding targets.

In return, our consultants receive financial rewards limited only by their success. Our ongoing training and mentoring coupled with our leading edge technology equips them with all the skills they need to succeed. There is also the opportunity is there to work internationally as part of our global expansion.

Our ongoing success is founded on one thing: our people. Are you interested in finding out more? Take the Hays Challenge.
