People are what sets leading specialist agency Premier Group Recruitment apart from the crowd. Consultants build long-lasting relationships with clients and candidates, linking talent to top brands across the technology, engineering and creative markets.

Employees enjoy a fun and exciting working atmosphere at the global firm, which has offices in London, Reading, Manchester, Birmingham, New York and Austin. Agile and dynamic, the Premier business model keeps it at the cutting edge of the recruitment industry and the company ensures everyone has a voice in the way it runs, by testing the temperature through regular internal surveys and meetings.

Rewarding staff with meaningful benefits is also central to the Premier DNA and its perks are designed to enhance employees' working and home lives – from extended lunch breaks and new home hampers to subsidised gym memberships and eye tests.

The company thinks big when it comes to incentives, which include days out at the races and regatta, shopping sprees and champagne. Staff wellbeing has been a focus throughout the pandemic and in 2020 everyone got a day off as a thank-you for their efforts during such an uncertain time, while the HR team held in-depth confidential chats with all employees – including those on furlough.

Featured Workplace Factors

My Manager

100% of staff agreed

My manager regularly expresses their appreciation when I do a good job

All managers make changes and additions to Premier's in-house training programmes: Impact, Personal Development and Aspiring Leaders. Not only do they enjoy having this input, but by shaping the content the coaching they deliver is even more effective, because they truly believe in it.

My Company

99% of staff agreed

I love working for this organisation

Laptops and extra screens helped ease the transition to working from home and the company also hosted a variety of themed evenings, such as cook-a-longs, yoga sessions, cocktail clubs and quiz nights. A running club and a fitness group chat helped keep up energy levels.

Personal Growth

96% of staff agreed

This job is good for my own personal growth

The structured training that supports employees' career development is a proven winning formula – as 90% of Premier Group managers started out in junior positions and were promoted through the ranks. There was no pandemic pause to learning and development with courses going ahead effectively via Zoom and Teams throughout.
