"Why do I have to meet with you..?"

  • March 17, 2016

One of the questions we are asked most frequently by our candidates is “why do I have to meet with you?”, so let me try and explain why this is so crucial for us and so important for you in the search for your new role…

CVs are only a tiny reflection of a candidate’s potential, a face to face interview will give us a much bigger insight into you as a person and ultimately enable us to match you to one (or more!) of our job roles. Plus, you will get to meet the rest of our lovely team. 

We are not just inviting you in for a grilling, to scrutinise your CV or as a form filling exercise. This is a great opportunity for us to assess your face to face interviewing skills and to offer some advice. Our candidates find this extremely useful and we constantly receive feedback that this has helped them to secure a role. 

Yes, it is a pain to take time out of your day to come in and meet with us and yes, some agencies are targeted on the number of candidates they register – but not us. We will only ask to see candidates who we genuinely feel we can help and are happy to meet out of working hours where necessary. 

We know that you have probably registered with other agencies without a face to face meeting – but this is what makes us different. We pride ourselves on offering a personal service and building positive relationships with our candidates.

In addition, our clients pay our fees because they trust us to handle their recruitment and ultimately to find them the right person. We want to do a great job, so of course we are going to take the time and effort to meet with the candidates we are recommending for interview. 

So if you are really serious about finding a new job…come in and see us!
