Transitioning in to the recruitment sector

Our colleague, Julie Myers, explains why she chose to work in the recruitment sector and how she has found it after a varied career within local government, central government and regulatory sectors:

Our approach to agile working

As part of our commitment to build a more diverse workforce in a fully inclusive environment we introduced agile working late last year after a 6 month engagement process. This wasn’t just about working from home occasionally, but a strategic move to empower our people to work in a more agile way to better fulfil their role, improve our client and candidate service and increase the diversity of our workforce.

Earlier this year, we asked our people just to sum up their perspectives of GS as an agile employer and we were moved by the response of those who participated. Take a look to find out how agile working has changed our own GS community for the better.

Our approach to inclusion

An inclusive culture is critical to the way GS operates. We value the differences between us and celebrate them through our employee-led Be the Difference awards. We ensure that everyone can build a career at GS with clear and equitable pathways. And we live our values – we encourage collaboration within and across teams, curiosity to learn about something new, and actively advocate for people to have the courage to challenge the status quo, so that all views are heard, no matter where they are coming from.

Our approach to wellbeing

GS takes its commitment to employee wellbeing seriously. Our approach to agile working ensures that everyone is in control of their work life balance. With 10 Mental Health First Aiders in place across the business, there is always someone to talk to when things to get hard, and everyone has access to an Employee Assistance Programme. We are committed to social justice and have an active CSR programme. Everyone who works for GS gets two paid days per year to volunteer with a charity of their choice, and we have a formal Charity of the Year partnership with the Mental Health Foundation, helping ensure we keep the conversation alive and work towards eradicating the stigma associated with talking about mental health.

Career pathways

While your next move will be uppermost in your mind right now, we are very aware that you may also want to ensure that future career opportunities will be open to you. At GS our HR and leadership teams are focused on helping you be the best version of you. This means helping you to develop in role, as well as guiding you through a choice of different career pathways. You set the boundaries, you find your own limits, with GS the future is yours to create.
