You can talk to our partners
You can speak to our firm’s partners at any time – something you won’t get with every search & selection firm. Our partners have superb knowledge of their sectors, roles and remuneration, and will share that information with you. They’re here to help guide you towards your ideal next challenge.
Information about future opportunities
Develop a competitive edge by making the most of our in-depth knowledge. Besides keeping you informed of current opportunities, our consultants can offer insights on where new roles are being created in response to changing market conditions, shifts in national policy, and emerging requirements within the sectors we serve.
CV and interview preparation
Making a good first impression matters, so we’ll guide you with your CV/application and help to prepare you for interview. We’ll also ensure you receive a high-quality, detailed briefing about the vacancy. We’ll explain the recruitment process, along with any particular requirements and preferences.
Feedback & aftercare
Whatever the outcome of your application, we’ll ask for feedback from the client and pass it on to you. We’ll take the time to offer you honest, clear and constructive advice to support you in your career development. Once you’ve taken up your new post, we’ll stay in touch for a while to help ensure a smooth transition.
Stay in touch
Even if you aren’t ready to move on right now, or the position we approach you about doesn’t appeal, we recommend that you use the contact opportunity to compare thoughts and extend your network for future reference. Long-term relationships with the right head-hunters have often proved very advantageous for executives and academics alike.
Eligibility to work in the UK
For each vacancy filled, our clients are legally obliged to confirm that the appointee is eligible to work in the UK. When you apply for jobs it is important that you are aware of your eligibility status as government restrictions apply to the employment of migrant workers. As of 1 January 2021 this includes individuals from Europe. If you are selected to be appointed and require permission to work in the UK, our client may issue a conditional offer of employment subject to undertaking the necessary sponsorship process.
