Advice for clients/candidates?

CANDIDATES: Make sure you are submitting your CV for jobs that are relevant to you and your qualifications. Be patient with us, we can only move as fast as our clients allow. Trust us to handle the process for you. Always send us your full CV as we want to see your whole career. Please don’t leave anything out. Remember to follow-up with a phone call, so that your CV and personality stands out over and above all the other applicants we receive on a day to day basis.

CLIENTS: Please give us as much information as possible when briefing us on job vacancies – the more information we have, the better we can provide you with accurate candidates to match your criteria. Communication is key, job specs do not tell us the full story. We need to know more to find someone with the right ‘job fit’ as opposed to simply matching all the requirements.
