    Kieran Gibney, Consultant

    "When you work with the academy you are shown all sides of the business so you know what suits you best and where you want to be. Getting the job right is only one side of things though, it wouldn’t be right to talk about RSG without mentioning the people. The social side of working here is something you really don’t get anywhere else. "

  • Jake Garnett

    Jake Garnett, Consultant

    "The training, support, guidance and environment that is provided is second to none and not to mention the people that are here. One part that I think is really good is that the training continues through-out your early career, you do not just get left on your own. I would personally recommend the RSG academy to any one of my family or friends without a second thought."

  • Rory Morrison

    Rory Morrison, Consultant

    "RSG’s emphasis on training and development is reflected in the help and guidance not just throughout your first few months but throughout your Academy progression, undoubtedly helping you go from strength to strength."

  • Leroy Owusu-Addae

    Leroy Owusu-Addae, Consultant

    "Having first found RSG at the University of Manchester’s career fair, I soon moved to our Bristol office to undertake my first few months of Academy life. One of the things that really drew me to RSG was the scope for travel, short-term secondments and permanent relocations to other regional offices. With a number of UK and European offices, RSG openly encourage employees to move between them. Soon after completion of the Academy I relocated to our London office where I currently now reside."

  • Heluis Egenberg

    Heluis Egenberg, Consultant

    "With our expansion into Europe there are many opportunities for individuals to branch out to try new roles, new offices and even new countries. There are no dead ends at RSG; you and your role can evolve as much or as little as you want. The development of our internal ‘SHED’ (Skills Hub & Educational Development) system allows employees to create a profile which gives RSG a more personal view of who you are than what your CV can show."

  • Mark Hinks

    James Knight, Principal Consultant - Finance

    "If you have the desire and the drive, you can progress really quickly at RSG. Within 4 years, I progressed from an Academy Trainee to Principal Consultant, managing my own team. Don't be afraid of ambition; RSG will help you become whatever you want. All you have to do is choose."

  • Mark Hinks

    Ingrid Smejkal, Internal Recruiter

    "A huge percentage of the current work force started off in the Academy at the very beginning of their careers, and as a result of the one-on-one, individually tailored training programme, their careers have flourished. With many of them still here more than a decade later, the Academy is continuously bringing on new recruits and giving them the opportunity to build a future with RSG."

  • Mark Hinks

    Felicia Heuchert, Researcher - International Intern

    "With our expansion into Europe, there are many opportunities for individuals to branch out, to try new roles, new offices and even new countries. There are no dead ends at RSG; you and your role can evolve as much or as little as you want."

  • Mark Hinks

    Connor Spears, Consultant

    "The social side of RSG is incredible; everyone's always up for a laugh and the office environment is really energetic. More importantly though, being surrounded by fun, inspiring people helps me work hard. They get the best out of me."

  • Mark Hinks

    Jason Rai, Consultant

    "Thanks to the wide range of bespoke training I was given, I was free to move between departments to develop my skills in as many industries as possible and find what really suited my style of working. That's the great thing about the Academy, they don't abandon you once you pass; the training continues throughout you career."

  • Mark Hinks

    Hannah Waddington, Consultant

    "It's never too late to change career paths. I initially joined RSG as a Relationship Manager, and spent a little time in the Academy to get a better understanding of how the company worked as a whole. Very quickly however, I realised I was doing something I really loved, and I've never looked back. It's always worth having a go; you never know where even the smallest opportunity will lead you."

  • Mark Hinks

    Jon Ball, Director

    "In the summer of 2004, a valuable employee of ours left the company. It took six months to find a suitable replacement and another nine to train them up to his standard. That's nearly two years of lost opportunity and revenue. This was when I proposed the idea of a Training Academy; we would nurture a group of trainees who would work on real vacancies and gather real life experience as they learnt. Therefore, whenever necessary, we had a pool of talented and trusted individuals who could step into empty shoes. Today, our trainees are always keen to progress, putting friendly pressure on the recruitment teams to maintain a high level of performance. Now the number of Academy alumni is huge, and the invaluable support and encouragement it offers means you can make an informed decision about the direction you want your career to take."
