Over 80% of the candidates we meet are seeking a new role not because they cannot do their job but because they are no longer challenged, they are no longer inspired by their line manager or the company culture has changed beyond recognition. We match you to the next role using three key criteria:
We have a full job specification from each client that we will discuss with you and will ensure you have the correct skills , experiences and competencies to excel in the role. We will be clear what training will be available to you.
We match your expectations, working and management skills, personality and skills – you spend a lot of your life at work with colleagues and it is important you are happy and supported. We will have visited the team we are asking you to join and will know about the environment in which you will be working.
In order to be happy and successful in your next role you need to share the prevailing values of the organisation you are going to join – we will take the time to understand what is important to you.
The Interview process: prior to meeting any of our employers we will ensure you have time to prepare for your interview. You will know the style of interview you will be having and what will be expected from you including any assessments. Free coaching is available during this entire process.
