For designers/creatives it is essential we discuss your portfolio with you, and equally for other areas such as marketing and PR, it helps if we can view examples of projects you have worked on.
Whether you are working above or below-the-line, you will most likely consider the environment, the working processes, the clients, etc. We aim to match your ideals and expectations as much as possible, also taking into account any work-place issues in your current role. This should include not just what scope for future development there is but also the cultural fit between employer and employee.
Briefing you prior to interview
Like most things in life, preparation is the key. We don’t simply telephone you and tell you to turn up for a job interview at a prescribed date and time. From your initial contact with ourselves, we will establish when and how to contact you.
Telling you about the client
What do you want to know about the role, them, etc?
You get a written copy of the vacancy brief, URL for the clients own website, and interview preparation notes.
Both candidates and clients receive the same ‘hymn sheet’ ie: ‘who is going to meet who, where, why, and when’, with full contact details included.
The job offer and resignation from your current role
Upon receiving instruction from our client, we will go through the offer of employment made to you, answering any questions that you may have, obtaining clarification from them r if necessary. Sometimes at this point even the most hardened of job seekers can get the equivalent of ‘buyer’s remorse’ and the thought of tendering their resignation with their current employer is not something that they look forward to! We have over 14 years (and counting) experience of taking candidates through the resignation process, assisting with aspects from how to construct your resignation letter, to how to understand your contractual obligations with your current employer etc.
