If you’ve read the other pages on this site, you’ll have been given an insight into our business and how we operate but who better to tell you just how it is than our own employees. See below for what some of them had to say about their NonStop journey.
One of the things I love about NonStop is that it’s all about building relationships. Internally, colleagues have become friends and family and externally, with my clients and candidates, I’m a trusted advisor.

My 2011 self surely would not believe that in 2016 I would manage a team of eight people, have a nice car and own an apartment in London. I came to NonStop bankrupt with no money and very little opportunities in front of me! This may sound too good to be true, but for someone who really wants to make it happen then it really can, I am living proof. What makes NonStop different from many companies is that the company owners are truly bought-in to growing the company, and bought-in to every person that works here.
I’ve been with NonStop for almost three years now and if anyone told me three years ago that you can learn and change so much in this time, I wouldn’t have believed it! What I love most about NonStop is that you always have the space to learn something new, to take on a new challenge and you simply can’t get bored!
Quality Assurance Team Leader
To say a training programme has changed my life might seem like a gross exaggeration but with NonStop’s programme, I have grown both professionally and personally. It is designed to help you improve as a recruiter, to develop in a way that gives you a competitive edge over your market rivals. The competitive edge is a greater development of empathy and the ability to differentiate yourself in an industry that’s littered with individuals and companies who ignore the human aspect of our industry.
NonStop Education Team Leader
I joined NonStop as a recent graduate with limited work experience. I knew two things – I wanted a career that would allow me to progress quickly and provide me with an extensive training in an international environment. Over the last two years I progressed from trainee to the top billing team leader. The continual support, training and coaching and limitless growth potential proves this an excellent career path, especially for motivated people.
I started as the first consultant covering France and I am proud to say we now have more than 20 consultants covering the territory! This is probably my biggest achievement, being able to develop a market from scratch while gradually building a team of excellent consultants. I’m extremely proud to work with such a great team as we continue to strive for success.
Since I’ve been at NonStop I’ve completely changed my concept of meritocracy. After three years I’m leading the development of over 15 consultants and every little piece of my effort has been repaid tenfold. Only the sky stands above us!
My NonStop career began in March 2016, working in the Italian team. I am a very goal-oriented person so I was promoted pretty fast. After only one and a half years working as a recruiter, NonStop gave me the possibility to join my ex-trainers in the Training & Development team. At NonStop the quote ‘you get out of it what you put in’ is a fact and I am very proud of to be a part of it!”
Training & Development Team Leader
NonStop gave me the opportunity to work remotely from home as a part-timer while finishing my university studies. Once I started working full-time in the office, it took me five months to go from QA Specialist to Senior QA Specialist and eventually become a QA Team Leader. This shows you can really fast-track your career with NonStop and at the same time obtain a transferable and unique skill set.
Quality Assurance Manager
I joined back in 2007 as a budding graduate at a time when NonStop had only 25 employees. I have seen this business grow and develop beyond my wildest dreams. We have become a business about quality, ethics and making sure our team have long-term careers no matter what they do. Colleagues have become long-term friends and NonStop has become ingrained into my DNA, shaping me into the person I have become today.
The training programme the company has developed is incredible. In just two months, I was promoted, having been given the training and support I needed to build my own market. Not only did it teach me all aspects of recruitment, it also improved my confidence and general workplace skills. I came from a sales background and I think I learned a lot more about sales in those two months of training than I had in the previous five years.
Talent Acquisition Team Leader
I joined NonStop in 2013 when I was 25 and like most people at that age, I had no idea what my future goals were; I just wanted to try something new and exciting. The training and career progression potential offered by NonStop helped me to develop so quickly that I now manage an office of 150 people in Prague and have a realistic retirement target in place and which I should achieve in the next 5-10 years. It has completely changed my life.
I have been with NonStop since 2014 and am still learning and growing both professionally and personally. Throughout my time here, I have been helped to realise what really drives and motivate me, which has helped me discover aspirations for the future I never knew I had.
Training & Development Team Leader
I joined NonStop Recruitment in 2015 in need of a new challenge and I have not regretted the decision. It’s dynamic company with passionate and enthusiastic owners who continue to drive it forward and bringing the management team along for the journey. It is a company in which you can learn a lot, do a lot, gain great experience and genuinely feel part of the business’ direction.
Head of Operations
Having worked at NonStop for six years I’ve seen it grow from a company with a small office in Shad Thames to a business with a pan-European office network, well over 200 employees and still undergoing rapid growth. I’m in awe of what my colleagues are achieving every day and love seeing them develop personally and professionally – just as I have developed and continue to learn on an ongoing basis. Being a part of the NonStop story has quite literally been a life-changing experience.
It’s our people that make our business great. Our culture is based on core values, a supportive working environment, continual development and individual recognition. This is what drives us to achieve the best as a team. My story is one of the many examples of NonStop’s development opportunities. I joined the business in an entry-level position in March 2008 and eight years on, I am heading my own department! I love the fact one never stops learning at NonStop.
Head of Talent Acquisition
I’ve worked at NonStop since 2008 and what a journey it has been! I’ve developed both professionally and personally and have grown with the business. NonStop isn’t just a career, it’s a family.
I’ve been with NonStop since October 2013 and during that time, I have had the pleasure to meet so many wonderful people from all across Europe. They became my friends outside of work as well as reliable colleagues from whom I have learnt a lot. They are one of the many things I appreciate about working at NonStop.
Finance Team Leader
After 10 years working within the health and social care sector I wanted to be sure that I was making the right move in my career. Moving to NonStop was a massive culture shock, but in the best possible way. I joined a business where everyone was pulling in the same direction with a focus on continual improvement, coaching and progression.
NonStop Care Team Leader
I have found in NonStop all I was searching for: the possibility to challenge myself, to push my limits, to develop new skills that I will use probably for the rest of my life, new friends of different nationalities, and the chance to live in an amazing city. My plan is now to build a long term international career!
Talent Acquisition Specialist
My NonStop career began in the Quality Assurance department and am now working as a consultant. I doubt I could find a company culture better than here – an organisation run by young people with uncapped commission structure, leadership opportunities, continual training and development, and so much more. What’s not to like!?
NonStop Finance Team Leader
Watching the development of NonStop as a business over the last five years has been staggering in of itself, let alone the personal & professional growth I have felt as being part of that. The investment the company makes in its staff is phenomenal and the rewards available for those prepared to apply the learning and persevere, is one of the most competitive in the industry.
Training & Development Team Leader
I joined NonStop as a fresh graduate with no clear idea of what I wanted to do. Looking back I honestly can’t imagine better company to start my career in. I’ve progressed from entry level role to managing three different departments and I believe there is still long way to go. The best part is that the longer I’m here, the more I learn and the more exciting the journey gets!
Head of Business Services
NonStop has taught me a lot about myself, as well as providing me with valuable skills. Being in charge of your own business unit and the team within it is a great responsibility to have and not one I believe a lot of people get after being in a company for only five years. The learning curve has been steep but incredibly enjoyable and rewarding. You really do get out what you put in.
When I joined NonStop I was unsure of what to expect, I only knew what I was looking for: knowledge, personal growth and a career. The most amazing thing about working for NonStop is that even when you achieve goals, you develop newer goals, things you may not have thought about previously, that push you further and further. I found in NonStop a company that really is helping me develop, grow and succeed.
