Giving Something Back

Every member of staff is encouraged to learn and develop at every stage of their career, from Trainee Consultant through to Management. The company call this the Darwin Career Academy. They have enlisted the expertise of an external recruitment training and development expert, who delivers the induction training for new consultants, as well as specific modules that help the recruiters to progress and achieve their own career goals. For Darwin's mid-level staff, they have developed a programme called 'Rising Stars'. Each module is delivered in person by Darwin's CEO and co-founder Paul Kirby. Darwin support Central Services functions to obtain bespoke qualifications to their profession and therefore give access to flexible working arrangements to attend ongoing Continuing Professional Development events.

Personal Growth

The experience I gain from this job is valuable for my future

Darwin's CEO Paul sits on the sales floor amongst the consultants, this way he ensures that he is constantly accessible all day every day. Paul's sentiment and commitment is fully reflected in the new Darwin strapline; Collaborate and Evolve. The company collaborate with staff to help them evolve within the business. Every six months Darwin hold “15 minutes with Paul”, which takes place over a number of weeks. During this time, Paul travels around the Darwin offices and meets with every member of the business at every level. Staff are encouraged to speak to Paul about any concerns or questions they have and to offer suggestions for improvements to the working environment and business processes. The ideas and feedback is then shared with the board and Senior Management/operations teams who, in turn, take responsibility for driving through the relevant changes. This proves to staff that Darwin value their feedback.
