We can promise you a fantastic working environment, amazing benefits and supportive colleagues with Orchard but don’t just take our word for it! Find out what some of our consultants have to say about us below...
Ryan Sammons, Trades & Labour Consultant:
“I like being part of an organisation where I feel valued as part of the team, that my views and suggestions count and can contribute to the company’s overall development. This isn’t something I’ve experienced before working for a big organisation. At Orchard we’re a characterful team working in a great environment with lots of opportunities open to us.”
Matthew Okey, Senior Consultant, Permanent White Collar:
“I joined Orchard with recruitment experience but within a different sector. It has been a steep learning curve but by immersing myself in the construction industry, researching it, listening to people and with the support of my colleagues I now know more about construction than I did about my previous sector.
“I was on the verge of leaving recruitment altogether to try and challenge myself in a new industry but decided instead to try a new sector and am glad I did. I’ve had the best 12 months in terms of figures that I’ve ever had and the atmosphere is excellent. Everyone gets on – it’s the perfect blend of hard work and a good laugh!
“Orchard is very team oriented. There is a lot of camaraderie from the top down, a competitive salary and benefits package and a straight forward and transparent commission scheme.”
Oliver Forder, Recruitment Consultant – Trades & Labour:
“My role involves placing temporary workers into contracted positions and negotiating terms between contractors and workers. I had worked in recruitment for two years before I joined Orchard and was attracted by the way they work with temporary workers and contractors. They are the most honest agency I have ever come across. I also like the management style at Orchard; it is understanding and easy-going which differs from what I’ve experienced before.”
Isabel Dutton, Office Administrator and Data Protection Officer:
“I joined Orchard after more than six years as a recruitment consultant as I have been searching for a better work / life balance. Here at Orchard I am able to work part-time to help me juggle my home life and also study for a master’s degree in HR. Orchard is such a great place to work, everyone gets along well so there’s a good atmosphere. We’re like a little family - we each have our own part to play and we all get on and do it.”
Steph Gilding, Office Administrator and Data Protection Officer:
“I came to Orchard after seven years as a recruitment consultant as I wanted to work closer to home to cut down on travelling and stay within recruitment but with a change in role.
“I’ve worked for big corporates before which have been regimented and KPI driven in their approach. Orchard is the complete opposite. Being smaller, everything is more personal so we get to know each other, our candidates and clients really well which helps with customer service and leads to a relaxed, supportive atmosphere. We’re like a second family.”
