We're conscious of our culture
At AccountAbility, we believe that having a diversity initiative goes against the true belief of the word. Rather than forcing diversity through policy, we simply invite anyone with the same like-minded thinking, spirit, and heart, from across the globe to join our team. What we believe in, is talent and ambition.
Our passion for people and supporting people through their journey to a better future means that our differences such as gender, age, nationality, and religion are all the components of what makes us unique and part of a much bigger picture.
To attract and retain such a unique team, we place a premium on creating and living an inclusive, respectful company culture.
We believe that by creating this conscious culture, we are able to create a path for more meaningful change for our candidates, our clients, and our industry.

We know that when it comes to your career, you have big ambitions. So, it's important to find a company that is going to give you tailored training and learning opportunities in order to achieve them. Rather than provide generic, process-based training, we prefer to look for bespoke development opportunities instead.
What training will I get?
Recruitment training is most effective when the theory has the chance to be put into practice.
For Associate Consultants:
This is an outsourced training program tailored to learning the industry and processes, depending on your level of experience, over your first 6 weeks in the business. We then hand over to divisional leaders to continue the practical learning, a continuous spirit of sharing professional and personal development across our business which will help you learn the job as you build confidence in each aspect of the role.
For more Senior Recruiters:
This may be more individual training focused on growth areas, for example, 1-1 time with a personal branding coach, or public speaking and presentation courses, through to advanced training from our platform partners like Bullhorn, LinkedIn, or Seek to ensure you get the maximum value from the tools you use each day.
Regardless of role or experience, all of our team join or present our "learn from the best sessions" which feature specific skills training delivered by our own high performers and shared from their experience. These are then shared with the wider global group (and vice versa) to leverage our collective experience, to ensure your ongoing learning and development.Finally, we engage outsourced providers across a number of non-work-related fields to ensure you grow professionally and personally including sports and high-performance coaches.
Can I get a mentor?
When you have the will to do a job but are developing your skills, you are going to need a mentor. Sitting next to someone and copying what they do is the traditional model but, if that person has been on their desk for many years, copying them is not going to be the right approach for growing you as a consultant.
You need a hands-on leader who can steer your efforts and provide the right structure for your skill level. All of our divisional leaders are proven recruiters who also have the rare gift of wanting to share their time and knowledge. Looking for on-the-job mentoring? Let's have a discussion.
Your future, your choice.
Do you want to be a top biller or a people manager? We give our people a choice in how they want to progress.
1. The 'Sales' (Fee earning) path
By choosing this path you will work towards becoming a Principal Consultant, allowing you to concentrate on billing, whilst gaining recognition for being an exceptional, high achieving, and specialist recruiter in your chosen market.
2. The 'People' (Management) path
This allows you to work towards becoming a Divisional Lead and caters to those who want to develop their people management skills and focus on building and leading high performing teams.
Regardless of which path is right for you, you'll find plenty of opportunities to rapidly accelerate your career at AccountAbility.
Sounds like a dream career?
