Frequently Asked Questions
If you’ve never used an agency to help you find a job, you will probably have some questions you’d like answered. Here are some we’ve been asked in the past:
Q:I registered with you a while back and would have expected a daily update on how you my application is progressing. How do I know you are genuinely working on my behalf?
All our candidates are important to us but we have literally tens of thousands of job seekers on our database. Obviously, they are not all looking for a new job at the same time but, even so, daily updates to all of them would be impossible. If you don’t hear from us for a while, it’s not because we’ve forgotten about you but because we don’t currently have any vacancies that match your needs. However, feel free to give us a call if you’d like an update.
Q:Can you guarantee that you’ll find me a job?
We cannot promise to find a job for every candidate who registers but we will do our best to match you up with suitable roles and employers.
Q:Can I register with more than one agency?
Yes, as many as you like, though you may want to choose one or two which specialise in your particular market. Many of our candidates register exclusively with us but the choice is theirs. Working with one good agency will ensure that you are well represented and that your CV is not scatter-gunned to every vacancy that becomes available – whether it suits you or not.
Q:If you place someone in a temporary role do you take a percentage of their weekly earnings?
No. The hourly rate you are offered is paid to you in whole – minus Tax and National Insurance of course. The same goes for a permanent job. There is no charge to the candidate and your salary is yours to keep.
Q:Do I have to pay to register?
No. All the candidate services we offer are free of charge. This includes an interview with one of our consultants, formatting your CV, advice on career planning and salary expectations, interview tips and reference checks for temporary roles.
When you visit our offices to register for the first time, you should bring:
An up-to-date version of your CV
National Insurance number
Passport or Work Visa
Names and contact details of two referees
Bank details (for temporary roles to enable us to process your wages)
