If you haven’t already seen the pictures on social media of our consultants with cut ties, you might be wondering what this post is all about (see below).

Barrington James London Gatwick run a leading ‘best in class’ Recruitment Academy, which is 12 weeks of fun but intense training, hard work and long hours culminating in a final stage ‘interview’ to determine whether our trainees are ready to transition across to the sales floor as a full 360 consultant.

The reason we run an academy is to not only train employees to the best of their ability, but also to ensure our clients and candidates receive the best service possible. It gives new recruiters a greater chance of succeeding in what is a tough industry. Our Academy managers don’t run their own billing desks, instead they focus their time and efforts on supporting our new recruits.

We’re setting people up to succeed from the moment they join.

There is a reason why only 1 in 4 people succeed in recruitment. The industry is demanding and tough, and those that make it through the academy have demonstrated consistency and hard work, two of the most important things any good recruiter will possess.

Before our trainee consultants can pass the academy, they must go through a final stage interview where they will be assessed on their performance over the last 12 weeks plus their Commitment, Initiative, Professionalism and Attitude. Once they have passed the final stage, we cut their ties as a symbol of them transitioning over to the floor.

Other than attending a client meeting/business conference, the only time our consultants have ever have to wear a tie is when they’re picking their suit to wear to their first interview with Barrington James, and of course their last interview at the end of the academy. Us cutting their tie is firstly for a keepsake (we’ve got them mounted on the walls in the office) but also for the trainee consultant to show that their hard work has been recognised, and they have made the transition over to the ‘floor’.

If you’re considering Recruitment as a career choice, we’d be keen to hear from you. We’ve got a space in our academy with your name on it.
