What Hunted Says

MRL Consulting Group opened their doors in Brighton in 1997 and have since grown to have offices in Dresden and the South of France to fully immerse themselves in European technology markets. When the MRL team aren't working away, you'll find them playing volleyball on Brighton beach or out on incentive trips to Paris, the Guiness factory in Dublin or swanky restaurants. At the start of 2018 the whole company headed to Portugal... and if you've worked there for longer than 5 years, they'll give you a month's paid sabbatical.

One month paid sabbatical - yes, really

After five years of solid work your batteries need a recharge... we get it. So as a thank you for the continual commitment, MRL will send you on a one month paid sabbatical. This gives you the time to unwind and relax after putting in a long run of dedicated work. On top of this we will also throw in £1,000 so you can take a trip to a destination of your choice. This unique opportunity allows you to have a good break, ready for the next chapter. And with this being a recurring benefit, after another five years, you get another month.

I couldn’t have been made to feel more welcome. There’s no denying that being flown to Portugal for the sales kick off on my second day, helped me to settle in quickly! - Vanessa Milne

Hours & Culture

Consultant working week is 40 hours, the standard day is 9 – 6pm. Friday's are normally a little more flexible on a good week! Flexi-time upon passing of probation. Dress Code We have a smart casual dress code but obviously when pitching you’ll need to be suited & booted! On occasion it may be necessary to ‘dress up’ for the day if a client is visiting etc. We work as a unit, so you will have support and development from the entire team. Additionally we make sure to spend time outside of the office together with going out for dinner, drinks, sporting events & conferences.
