We empower our employees to perform, to become the very best they can be through personal and professional development. From trainee consultants to management, we provide training and support throughout to help sharpen and develop their skills and to always be one step ahead of the game.
Deverell Smith Academy
The Deverell Smith Training Academy is four weeks long and the end goal is to turn all new starters into a Deverell Smith recruiter! Your days are split in 2 – mornings of training followed by afternoons ‘on the job’. The first half of the day will usually involve a combination of classroom-based sessions, group work, e-learning and demonstrations of some of the processes needed to carry out your day to day job function, then the afternoon is then spent practicing what you have learnt or shadowing a member of the team that you will be working with. Whatever your background, our training will support you in becoming a recruitment expert & help you build a rewarding & successful career.
One to one training
Training and development never stops at Deverell Smith, we operate a culture where we encourage people to ask for help if they are struggling and provide bespoke sessions to help people overcome specific issues. We recognise that everyone is different and when it comes to learning and development one to one training can be the most effective method. Team leaders meet with their team individually every week where they identify areas for improvement and organise personal training sessions on social media, advertising jobs, sales techniques and database skills.
We are quick to identify our leaders of tomorrow and offer a structured career progression programme with different routes to satisfy people’s ambitions, be it in team management or running some of our biggest client accounts. Coaching is provided to all levels of management to ensure essential skills and personal qualities that will produce highly effective leaders. Our internal and external trainers equip our management team with skills to lead, motivate and organise their teams to ensure they can develop high performing, dynamic teams and accounts.
Working together rather than against each other makes us stronger and more successful. We organise team building days to share ideas, improve communication and motivation and above all else have fun.
