Academics

What Hunted Says

How do companies achieve good tenure? Great team, no pesky threshold and up to 25% commission. With Consultants staying with the team an average of 4 years, Academics have unlocked the secret to staff retention. Focusing on the education market means you’ll be working a fast paced desk. Plus team drinks and away days means you'll never have a dull day in the office again.

I've been at Academics for almost 3 years, and I really love it here. There's a great mix of people, and we really enjoy working and going out together.

Regular nights out, all paid for – gives us something to look forward to each half term. Nothing like cutting loose on someone else's tab!

What it's like to be new at Academics

"I have been at Academics for a short time and I am really enjoying it. The social side is brilliant when at work and outside. This isn’t a company that is very clicky, everyone here wants to help you with work or even outside of work. The teams are split apart into different department but everyone looks out for each other across the board. Academics is a fun environment. Fridays are a good day in the office, everyone is lively. Music DJ’s are selected every Thursday ready for the Friday madness then…the Friday booze commences. The times are very flexible which you very rarely get in other office environments. We are a fun bubbly bunch at Academics."

Academics London's offices are all easy to get to!

Our Stratford office is round the corner from Stratford Underground and Stratford International, and has great major bus routes! We won't lie, parking around here isn't that great, but who drives in London anyhow? Our Guildford Office has loads of parking, as well as a shuttle bus that goes from Guildford Station to the office, so catch a few extra Zs by taking the train into work.

We’re one big team! We all work together to get people clear, instead of it being Consultants and Compliance separate

Your Day Here...

Run your desk as your own business. The mornings are usually dedicated to supply and advertising, and afternoons are for clients and candidates. You'll quickly learn about your patch, and how to be successful!

It's a supportive atmosphere. I feel at home here and the people are very sociable. The training is really good; it makes it easy for people to feel comfortable in their new role.

Friendly people & environment. We're always up for a laugh & never take ourselves seriously (except for when it matters of course!)

We don't usually bowl, but when we do, we get drunk and don't take it too seriously

Since joining academics, it is a supportive atmosphere. The work colleagues have made me feel at home and are very sociable.
