  • You will usually only need to meet with one of our Consultants prior to introductions being made. However sometimes it is a request of our client that you meet with a particular Recruiter. So if you haven’t met them you may be asked to interview with them as well. They will have access to previous interview notes, however be prepared to answer questions that you may have already been asked, as the Consultant is wanting to hear it for themselves.

    The number of interviews you have with our clients varies however expect to have no less than two interviews.  If the client is struggling to make a decision and there are two candidates vying for the top spot, then there may be as many as five or more interviews however this is not common.

  • No, but it is very important that if you’re having doubts about the role, or you know for certain that you wouldn’t accept a job offer, that you tell your Consultant immediately so this can be managed.

    Should our client offer you the job on the spot, via a phone call or an email, you can choose to accept it or ask that the offer be made to us in the first instance to manage. We can then do the negotiating for you.

  • Your Consultant will organise for a letter of offer and an employment contract. They will then forward this on to you, requesting your signature.  Once you have emailed back a signed copy, your Consultant will finalise your employment with our Client.

  • It is our recommendation that you don’t resign from your role until you have signed an employment contract.
