Job Seekers FAQs

We take very seriously our ability to match the right candidates with employers. We believe employment should be for the long term and therefore it is essential that the candidates we put forward to our clients (employers) will fill the role in every aspect. To achieve this we ensure we carry out a full and proper screening process to properly market your attributes and skills to employers so you can be confident that you will be happy in the role should you be selected.

Seeking and securing employment is a process that requires certain important factors to be in place. As employers will be making an investment in you, you also have to make an investment in yourself. You may have the skills, abilities and personality for the role but certain factors such a poorly written CV or cover letter could be detrimental and work against you and perhaps prevent you from getting that all important interview where you can sell yourself. Therefore, in our extensive assessment we will advise you of the best course of action to take and provide you with all the necessary tools to do so. For example, improving or correcting a CV if required, or preparing well for an interview.

As a candidate you can be confident in receiving an exceptional quality service that will assist you in seeking employment.

We really do appreciate the time and effort taken by all candidates applying for the roles we advertise. If you have applied online you should have automatically received an email confirming receipt of your application.  The recruitment consultant dealing with the specific role will assess and review your application and if suitable you will definitely be contacted for further screening and shortlisting.  If applications received are few, you should receive a personal response, however in the case of us receiving large volumes of applications we regret that it is not always possible to provide feedback on any application which has been unsuccessful.

If you receive a ‘sorry but your application has been unsuccessful’ type response, and you think you are suitable and we’ve made an error of judgement, please give us a call and we will explain our views and decision. Perhaps your CV’s is unclear, misrepresenting you. We welcome the opportunity to put things right!
