Branded & Creative Products Manager
“My journey began in 2008. I started as a Database Marketing Assistant in the London office. Eager to learn everything about my role and beyond, I quickly developed new skills as well as created great relationships and friendships with my colleagues. I was given the right tools, the right training and great coaching from my equally passionate manager.
Thanks to the freedom and confidence Totaljobs Group gave me to pursue and implement new ideas, I was able to grow as a professional and move my role to the next level to where I am now: Branded & Creative Products Manager, responsible for our talented digital designers.”
“I’ve always looked to find those companies that give you a platform to succeed. Once you find that environment, you stick with it.
5 years on, I’ve been fortunate enough to have worked in two of our most profitable job boards in the business; CatererGlobal and Caterer.com. This has given me the opportunity to experience both the international and the UK hospitality industry.
Progression has been made easier with the right management team in place. Combine that with hard work and dedication; two promotions later, I am an Account Director on the best board in the business.”
Product Experience Lead
“I joined Totaljobs Group three years ago as a Lead Researcher focusing on recruiter products. Being a big and growing organisation there are opportunities to develop and change roles.
In my current role, I work with all the product teams serving our candidates. At Totaljobs Group, you’re treated as an expert in your field, but everyone’s opinion counts. My strengths and skills are recognised and utilised, and I know I can always be open and honest.
Being able to visit other offices in the UK and Europe helps to keep work interesting and build relationships across the organisation. This year, my career highlight was getting out of my comfort zone and presenting at a conference in Amsterdam. Totaljobs Group and the teams I work with were so supportive. So much so, I’m going back to present again!”
Business Analysis Team Lead
“I joined Totaljobs Group just over three and half years ago and have found it a fantastic place to work. The company celebrates success, rewards innovation, and provides plenty of opportunity for career advancement. I initially joined as a Senior Business Analyst, after a year or so became a line manager within the team, and after another year was promoted to team lead. At each stage I was given all the support and training that I needed, and I was never short of mentors.
Being surrounded by so many talented individuals, working in a great office space, in a great location, means I never dread Monday mornings.”
“My Journey began eight years ago on our market leading hospitality job board Caterer.com. I spent five amazing years with them learning about the fabulous hospitality industry, whilst gaining some amazing friends along the way. I moved over to Totaljobs over three years ago and can honestly say this is where my career truly took off.
Working with talented and driven people across all business areas has been brilliant, having the support of a fantastic manager and team leader, combined with on-going training sessions has helped me develop and become more successful. I have been promoted twice within the last three years and now a very proud Account Director on the Public Sector team.”
“Having joined the business with no sales experience in 2008, it quickly became apparent that this was the company where I wanted to build a career. Throughout my time with the business I have been supported, coached and encouraged to develop myself and move into bigger roles.
This has resulted in three promotions; starting as an entry level sales executive and progressing to my current role as Sales Director of our Havant office. I am now responsible for leading a team of 40 and am proud to share my journey with new starters joining the business. I am committed to giving them the same opportunities that I have had over the years.”
“I’ve been with the company for over three years and in that time have worked on some really interesting, game-changing products that help jobseekers find the right job and feel fully supported in their career development.
There have been many learning opportunities, from leadership and self-development programmes to collaborating with some of the most passionate, empathetic and inspiring people I’ve ever worked with. However, presenting the success of my products to 2,000 people at the annual company event in Berlin is a massive career highlight, as well as travelling to our European offices for regular meet ups with our international colleagues to share ideas, best practice and work out how we can continue to make brilliant products.”
“My experience so far at Totaljobs Group has been fast paced, sociable and driven. I have been lucky enough to take part in one of the innovation sprints held by the company and present a solution back to the business. I found this a great way to meet new people and learn more about the organisation, the experience helped me to feel welcome by the company, feel valued and to voice my opinion. I also feel like the company is very supportive and cares about my progression, for example, I have been given the option to take professional accountancy exams enabling me to further my career.”
Key Account Manager
“I have worked for Totaljobs for two and a half years, and in this time I have witnessed that Totaljobs Group is an inclusive company which promotes the right behaviour and provides progression and career opportunities.
In my time here, I have been promoted twice and made many friends. The management team are there to help and allow you to grow to the best of your ability. I would highly recommend a career at any of the Totaljobs Group brands.”
Senior Business Development Manager
“I started three years ago on CWJobs and was fortunate to start under a fantastic manager who helped me through a challenging initial three months whilst adjusting to different type of sell.
Since then, I’ve never looked back, and after moving into various roles within the CWJobs team, I really began to flourish. The support of all the departments in the organisation is second to none, from the events team, marketing, Traffic, IT, you name it. They are exemplary and have given me the platform to grow my career. After continuously delivering I made the Winter Tigers incentive and that opened a door to join one of the highest performing teams in the business. Another massive perk of the organisation, allowing people to change teams if the opportunity arises. A real family feel in the building which helps you grow your career and make you want to deliver as a salesperson."
“After three successful years working for CWJobs, I’ve been promoted three times and I am now an Account Director. What I like most about working for Totaljobs Group is the people, the sociable culture, the focus on career development path and of course, the excellent company benefits.
I am grateful for all the opportunities and experiences that Totaljobs Group has provided, especially when I was part of the “Tigers Incentive” spending a great three days in Budapest. #morethanajobboard2me”
“I have been lucky enough to be involved in an exciting journey with Totaljobs Group since its inception in the year 2000, making me one of the more seasoned members of the team: others would describe me as a dotcom dinosaur.
What excited me then and what continues to motivate me now is this incredible journey we continue to travel. I have seen the company evolve from a humble start-up, and have witnessed the amazing career paths people have followed, all while our site has flourished to becoming one of the leading job boards in the UK.
It’s a challenging career, for sure, but the successes have far outweighed the failures and thankfully I have been supported every step of the way. A good example of this was back in the early noughties when my family made the decision to relocate to Wales. Rather than leave the company, I was given the opportunity to take up a sales position in what was soon to become our first official regional office in Cardiff. Fast forward, I now head up a regional operation that comprises of six offices with a team of 80+ salespeople. This is the kind of opportunity that this company has provided me.”
I joined in April as a Product Analyst. It was bit of a new to me because I’d been a Data Analyst for the last 5 years.
Joining TJG the thing that stuck out to me the most was the different technologies you can work with. And the progression – when I was going through the interview process I was asked what kind of direction I wanted my career to go in. It was exciting and important for me to me to be asked that at such an early stage. And since joining I’ve been able to get involved in projects that I’ve never worked on before – the opportunities to learn are amazing.
I’ve still only met 3 or 4 people in my team in person because we’re still working in a hybrid way – but the way it’s been handled here has been great. The onboarding process was seamless. On my first day I was given everything I needed to know what I would be doing in my first few weeks - which I think shows how great my manager has been!
Customer Success Manager
I joined TJG after a friend who worked here recommended it. She said it was a great place to work, and I also wanted to make a change to have more stability in my work.
I started in February 2020 – and had just one week working from the office before we all started working from home! Despite all the challenges that came with that, everyone was lovely, and super supportive. The teams responsible for helping everyone to work from home were brilliant, and everything from mental health to equipment was thought of. Mental health and wellbeing are very important to me, and I was really pleased to take up the opportunity to train as a mental health first aider – which means I’m available to talk to colleagues if needed.
One of the best things about working at TJG has been the career opportunities. Despite working from home and not being able to meet colleagues face to face, that really hasn’t held me back. In fact I’ve been promoted twice since joining – initially from the role of Training and Onboarding Consultant, and then to the role of Customer Success Manager. So, I’d say the best thing about TJG is there are lots of opportunities to grow and I’m really excited for what’s to come.
Business Development Manager
Joining TJG has been a great experience – and was definitely the right choice for me. The training I have received has been in depth – but it was spread out in a way that was helpful and digestible. It didn’t feel overwhelming taking it all in, which of course makes the development opportunity itself more impactful and exciting. I’ve been able to apply the new information I’ve been given and the skills I’ve learned, while also taking the time out from the day job to also attend training. I joined TJG with sales experience, but I I feel like my sales credibility and skill set have gone up a notch here and I’m looking forward to continuing to develop.
If my time here so far is anything to go by then I can see myself working here for a long time to come, not least because I’m really enjoying the challenge of New Business and also the generous rewards too!
I joined TJG on 24 January 2020 – just before the pandemic started. I was originally on a temporary contract, and I’d never been a in credit control role before. After a couple months with Totaljobs I went permanent in September 2020 – and I was ecstatic. My experience of starting here, despite all the challenges of getting to know the business while we were going into lockdown, has been so fantastic.
My time at Totaljobs Group has not only help me gain experience within the finance sector but it has given me the confidence to know that I can work under any situation. However, some credit does have to go my team leader who gave me all the help and support I needed, which really helped through some tough times. Moving over from South Africa and pretty much going straight into lockdown has been an adjustment that has been both exciting and nerve racking at the same time.
Joining the Totaljobs Group team has had a lot to do with making my time here in London so far, a memorable one, and I cannot wait for what is still to come.
Customer Success Manager
I joined the business after being a Recruitment Consultant and a Sales Account Manager in another business. I was attracted to work here because it felt like a really great amalgamation of all my skills.
I initially joined TJG as an account manager and I really loved working with clients as their recruitment partner and being integral to their recruitment strategies.
TJG really encourages internal progression – and not just through one standard route. Since joining as part of the Sales team I’ve moved into the Customer Success team, and I really owe TJG a lot because it’s been here that I have found a career that I really love.
DEI is a really big focus here and that’s something that’s also really important to me. I joined the Women@TJG network when it was first set up and I also lead the Charity Network which has been a brilliant experience. We hold fundraising events and support colleagues to use their charity days (we give two days per colleague each year to use to support a cause that is important to them). It’s been a great experience and one that I feel really proud of.
Customer Success Manager
I’d been wanting to work for Totaljobs Group for a couple of years, but the role didn’t exist yet. When the did role come up, I jumped for it!
Joining this year, like a lot of people, I’ve been onboarding from home, but the workplace culture is still really strong. And the people and the work on DE&I have really impressed me.
What I really admire and appreciate about our team – and we’re a new team for the business so we’ve been forging our identity and our purpose internally – is it’s our job to say: “Ok, how can we be better? What can we do to be the very best partner for our customers?” I love talking to our customers knowing that we’ve been able to help them make the best hire for them – and we’ve helped change a candidate’s life for the better!
Our business is made up of a lot of incredibly smart people who really care. And the fact that I’ve felt a part of this culture while joining the business and working remotely says a lot – it will be really exciting when we’ll all be able to be in the same office! I’ve felt more connected and more a part of this team than I have in any job in the last 10 years!
Customer Training Consultant
I joined TJG in December 2020 as a Customer Training Consultant. Learning a new role with a new team virtually was a strange experience but I quickly made to feel really welcome, and I feel very lucy to have made some great friends here! I’ve also really benefitted from being given some interesting opportunities – for example, I’ve been a key part in shaping the training experience for our customers. I really appreciate how TJG has encouraged me to find my fit and build on my strengths.
I joined TJG in Oct 2017 as a National Account Manager, after running a recruitment business with my family. Since then, I’ve moved into my Account Director role working with Enterprise clients.
I’ve been lucky to have had a lot of support from my colleagues and built some great friendships. And in 2020 – a tough year for everyone – I truly appreciated the escalated levels of support within my team and across the business.
2020 was also the year that The Black Network was created by colleagues following the murder of George Floyd. This has changed my experience at work – it’s been a safe space for Black colleagues to talk and connect. And of course we also have lots of fun – we hold talks and events for members and the wider business, and we offer career and mentoring support for Black colleagues across TJG.
Being part of a network of colleagues has helped to give us the confidence to have some important conversations about our business, and our CEO has really grabbed that conversation by the horns. I started co-chairing the network in March 2021. The network had achieved so much in its first year, so there were very big shoes to fill but I am so proud of what we’ve been doing to move closer to the goals we’ve set ourselves.
One of the things I love about The Black Network is that we are part of a wider network of colleagues under the umbrella of All_In – because of this we can collaborate with the Anti-Racism, With Pride, The Parents’ Network and Women@TJG communities and allies. I can’t wait to see what we achieve together this year – and to welcome new members!
