    Hi all,

    I have been contacted by these people Cerco, they explain to me on the phone that they are a recruitment agency and agreed to go and meet. when I done a net search I found out they are another TP with <<train now pay later regime>>.
    Has anyone been to their offices in London? please share your experience (if exists) as there is no point going to meet them if they are gonna offer me training and bull**** promises, im done with that.

    thanks

    They are both a private training company as well as a recruitment agency. I can't say how good they are at training or at placing people, all I can say is my dealings with them:

    I contacted them regarding training for my tech, the thing that put me off was when they said that at level 2 the MCDST will be part of the training. For level 3 the candidate will have the opportunity to gain a MCP.

    Nuff said...

    hi, i did the course beginning of June, the course was 3 weeks long and i did learn a lot, but unfortunately they still haven't found me a job i live in Derbyshire, they told me after the course that they will find it hard to get me a job, unless i live in London, if you need any more help just email.

    Search the forum for other threads on this Elhaj. They've been mentioned on here before - they don't provide industry-standard training, so you will end up with qualifications that are absolutely worthless. In addition, as another poster pointed out earlier in the thread, if you don't live in london (presumably where most of their (ahem) 'partner' companies are based) they probably won't be able to find you a job.

    Steer clear.

    stay away buddy i done there course was all payed for by them as i was medical retired out of Ministry of Defence and it was a load of crap honestly they stand in front of you and read from a book and tell you all the answers it was a complete shambles and i feel sorry for the guys on the course who forked out £5000 for the course as it was complete S*** they promise you the earth but dont deliver!

    me and 2 others got the courses for free but there were 15 of us on the course and they had to pay I keep in contact with 1 of the lads there i was on the course with and only 1 person got employment and not to be rasist or anything it was a Polish boy who lived in london who got an EPOS fix role

    my advice

    STAY AWAY
