For all candidates we offer relevant support and reliable information. You will be assigned to the recruiting professional most relevant to your chosen field. Their expertise and guidance will remove a large proportion of the stress that job hunting brings.

It is now widely known, that job hunting is a time consuming, laborious task. It can feel like you’ve fallen down a black hole, and the longer you are down there the deeper it feels you have fallen.

Guess what….? We’ve got a torch and ladder, and we found the white rabbit!

If you were job hunting on your own initiative, then you would need to set aside a sizeable chunk of time to make any progress. You have to treat it like it is “your job”. We do understand that the higher the level of job you are seeking can make it a longer process, the sector fluctuations etc. But variables aside, the average suggested time to devote to progressing your career currently stands at 25 hours a week. So the outlay of using our service is still a bargain. You cannot afford months to pass without a salary coming in. Time is money after all, and your time is precious.

A breakdown of the AVERAGE 19 hours of job search time might look something like this:

5 hours per week should be devoted to composing and refining job search communications including resumes, cover letters and follow up letters or emails.

4 hours per week searching for and applying to specific posted jobs through online sources including job sites and employer websites. Some on-line application processes can take upto an hour, just to apply!

3 hours per week identifying organisations in industries and locations of interest to target as prospects for enquiries regarding employment opportunities. This time would include completing online profiles and uploading CV into employer databases.

3 hours per week traveling to and participating in interviews. Attendance at job fairs would be included in this allotment. This time would vary greatly from week to week depending on the number of interviews secured.

4 hours per week should be devoted to various networking activities. Go to the pub?

Do’s and Don’ts for interviews

Your dedicated consultant will be glad to talk you through all the best tips for your industry and sector. As well as tell you all the standard interview etiquettes to refer to on the day.

Your consultant will prepare you for dealing with Skype interviews / Telephone interviews as well as face to face or group processes.

Accepting a job offer – Best Practice
An offer of a job will be presented to you by your consultant, usually over the telephone. Discuss the offer and be certain it is what you want.

Your new employer will confirm the offer in writing, and in most cases will include your contract of employment for you to sign and return.
It is courteous to reply to the letter as soon as possible after receiving it. Return any necessary contracts and paperwork.
Having made your decision, cancel all other interviews you had arranged and then notify your current employer.

After your first day in the new job…..
Encourage all placed candidates to submit a Week1 review. How they are adjusting and finding their new role. (Because we want to hear about successes and share it, pass on the buzz via social media #newjobday1)
