Tuesday, October 26, 2021

We understand that searching for a new role can be daunting, and that just looking for a new job on the internet can be overwhelming! Our dedicated Recruiters are available to help to make the process a little easier for you. Below are some commonly asked questions from our candidates, that we hope will give you a better idea on how we could assist you with your job search.

1. How often will I hear from you?

If you have been put forward for a role, we will be in touch with you regularly via your preferred form of communication, to keep you updated on the process and next stages. Every month we send out an email with our latest news articles, and these can give you further insight into the employment market and provide some helpful tips on finding your next career move. You can easily subscribe to our mailing list by completing the short form on our website.

2. What do you do with my data?

Your personal information is held on our secure database for our Recruiters to view, so that we can match you to suitable roles that you may be interested in. Under GDPR guidelines, you can request to have your information removed from our database as any point and for further details, please click here to view our Privacy Policy.

3. Will you speak with me first before you send my CV / details to employers?

We will always speak to you first before sending your CV to a prospective employer. Your circumstances may have changed since the last time we spoke with you, and it would be unfair to put you forward for a role that you know nothing about! Our Recruiters ensure that you receive all the relevant information needed about the position you’re applying for, and will only put you forward as a candidate if you wish to be considered and we feel that the fit will be right for both parties.

4. Are all of your jobs listed on your website?

Most of our vacancies that we are recruiting for are listed on our website and our social media pages. However, in some instances we have roles that will be coming up in the near future, but are not advertised yet. If you are looking for a new position and can’t find anything suitable on our platforms, it is always worth registering via our website. Our recruitment team can then reach out to you when potentially suitable job opportunities become available.

5. Do I need to come into your office to register in person?

You do not have to come into the office to register in person as you can easily create an account via our website, as well as upload your latest CV along with any supporting documentation.

6. What forms of ID do you require?

We accept either a Birth Certificate or Passport as forms of identification. If you do not hold a British passport then we would also require proof of settled status / valid visa status that allows you to work.

7. Will you help me with my CV or to prepare for an interview?

All of our recruiters work within their own specialist job sectors, meaning that they are experts in the sector of work that they cover. This enables them to fully understand our client’s requirements, and also ensure that they are best placed to help you with your applications. They will also be able to assist with preparing your CV before sending it to potential employers, and to help you fully prepare for an interview.

8. Does it cost me anything to register with you?

There is absolutely no charge to you for our services. Our fees are paid by our clients for our work to introduce suitable candidates to their company.
