The first thing to understand, is how recruitment agencies work: We partner with a number of different businesses and those businesses pay us to find them great employees. To do that we screen a large number of candidates (through direct job applications, referrals and networking). Once we receive your resume, we will review it to check whether you may be a match for any of the active jobs we are currently recruiting, or any potential positions we have in the pipeline.
If your experience is in line with our areas of specialisation, we will call and / or interview you to clarify your expectations and gain a better understanding of what jobs may be suitable. Once we find an opportunity that matches your criteria, we will introduce you to that employer and manage the communication, interview feedback and offer negotiation from start to finish. We provide support and guidance throughout the entire interview process and we will give you honest and constructive feedback at all stages to improve your chances of securing a role.

Interview style/structure can vary drastically depending on the role you are applying for and the company you are interviewing with. Panel interviews, assessment centres, competency-based interviews and coffee catch ups are all used for different reasons.
