Dedicated consultant

In order to provide the best service to both client and candidate, we believe in the importance of having a dedicated consultant on hand with experience of the sector you’re looking to work in.

Understand your needs

Each person’s job requirements are different and we get that. Maybe you want to be part of an established team in which you can excel or maybe you want to breakaway and be the first person on the ground with your skillset to take ownership and truely shape things. Or maybe you don’t want to be in the office at all; you want a job that gets you out and about to meet customers and clients, or need a flexible role with remote working. Whatever you’re looking for, when you first contact us we will discuss your specific needs and assign the consultant best suited to you and your search.

Take every call

Simple. We take every single call and always call you back. We are of course human (for the time being at least, until we get a grip on this AI thing), so if we miss a call we guarantee to get in touch before the end of the day.

Keeping you informed each step of the way

After your first chat with us, we let you know which clients we work with that may be of interest to you and inform you of any opportunities that we think would be a great fit for you. If we submit your CV for a role, we also love getting you feedback too so we can both understand what opportunities are right for you.

If, on the rare occasion we feel we are unable to assist you, we will let you know straight away. In today’s market, things move fast and time is precious so we don’t want to waste either your time or our clients. If this is the case, we’ll do our best to point you in the right direction.

Represent you in
the best light

We see A LOT of CVs everyday, ranging from the succinct, spot-on profile to the twelve-page “war and peace” to that one with the photo of the guy with the girlfriend cropped out whose interests include “exercise, socialising and cooking” (that’s just living life, right?). If you’ve forgotten to check whether your font type and size is consistent, and your spelling ranges from British to American English, do not fear, we have your back. Our proofreading and editing are to the standard of the Big Four (well, two of them at least) and we guarantee that your CV will be presented in the best, professional manner without altering any of the content.

Confidentiality

You can be confident that your CV will never be disclosed to clients without prior discussion with you. Similarly, if we are speaking with other people within your organization, you can rest assured your conversations with us are always confidential.

Go the extra mile

Finding your dream job or next contract role should be an enjoyable experience and as painless as possible. We will do everything we can to make this process run smoothly, from arranging initial telephone interviews if distance or time are a factor, to providing full interview prep to put you in the best position to secure a role and advice on how to handle Counter Offers. Hey, we’ll even assist with finding temporary accommodation for relocation or short-notice contract roles.

From employment
and beyond

Once we’ve helped secure you a role, either permanent or contract, we don’t vanish off the face of the earth leaving you to it. We keep in touch with you as often as you need. For those in full-time employment, this means building a long and lasting relationship, offering support and advice when needed and keeping you posted on trends in the marketplace. For contractors, we love our weekly aftercare service, giving you a call to ensure your contract runs smoothly, helping with any issues that may arise and providing valuable feedback from line managers that sometimes gets missed when everyone’s working to tight deadlines.
