Depending on the role being recruited for, applications can start coming through within minutes of a vacancy being advertised (it has happened!).  However, as we like to screen and interview candidates first, we will typically send you the first batch of CV’s within a couple of days of a vacancy being advertised. 

We manually screen all applications on receipt to decipher whether the candidate’s skills and competences match those required by the position.

If the candidate appears to have most of the required skill set, we will conduct a telephone interview to confirm their current work status, why they wish to move, what attracted them to apply, and so on.

We will collate as much information as possible before presenting you with a short-list for review.

We can provide a variety of support, including:

  • Writing interview questions
  • Sitting in on interviews if a 2nd interviewer is required
  • Leading the interview and asking questions
  • Taking notes whilst you ask the questions
  • Assisting with the selection
  • Providing an interview room
  • Meeting and greeting candidates on arrival

We do or best to make sure everyone (clients and candidates) have a positive experience during the recruitment process.  One thing we find that helps most, is keeping everyone informed and how things are progressing.

We endeavour to keep candidates informed of their application status, and provide constructive feedback when necessary.

We understand that sometimes, things just don’t work out, even when a candidate looked and sounded great during interview.

As a result, we offer a rebate period, which allows the client and candidate to make sure they are a good fit for each other.
