Finding a new job may seem daunting to some and exciting to others; however, let’s face it, it’s one of the most important life decisions you will make. We recognise this, and our wealth of recruitment and industry experience will help guide you through every step of the recruitment process, from applying for a job, the interview, and the job offer.
What can you expect?
Applying for a Job
We have a thorough conversation to understand and establish precisely what you seek in a new role and the direction you want your career to take.
We match your requirements to our current vacancies and, with your permission, proactively present future roles to you for consideration, often before they are advertised on the open market.
If you have applied for a vacancy, we thoroughly discuss the opportunity, giving you a detailed overview of the company and specific information on the role and the skills and experience required by the employer.
The job market is competitive, so we help you secure the best chance of obtaining an interview by providing CV tailoring guidance for specific roles. Highlighting the skills and experience most important to an employer helps get you noticed in the crowd.
So, you are one step closer to that dream job and have secured an interview; we constantly communicate and guide you smoothly through the process.
We know our clients very well and take the same detailed approach to establish what is important to them from their next employee. We provide advice on the best way to prepare for the interview and help focus your preparation on the subjects they are looking to explore. Take a look at some of our other resources.
Before your interview, we issue full details, including a website link, job specification, supporting information such as press releases and product data, and background information on the interviewer.
We advise on the expected duration, format, and how many stages are in the interview process.
After the interview, we take detailed feedback from you and the employer. We provide answers to any questions that you or the employer may have and communicate honest feedback to all parties and keep you constantly appraised of the expected interview completion timescale.
Once you receive a job offer, we advise on the best way to negotiate your salary and contract of employment if necessary.
We help with guidance on the process of resigning from your current role.
It is not uncommon to receive a counteroffer from your current employer. We help advise you on managing this diplomatically so that you maintain an amicable relationship and have a positive transfer into your new job.
