Our Candidates

Kirkland Associates are committed to finding our candidates the best opportunities to suit them, as well as offering confidential and essential career advice and support.

Our expert Consultants work with a full spectrum of clients from SME to Blue Chip, across our core sectors, which gives us access to a wide range of diverse vacancies

At Kirkland Associates our Consultants are not targeted on the number of candidates we interview and only register those we genuinely feel we can help. This ensures that we are dedicated to spending as much time as required to finding you the right job.

Our Candidate Promise

At Kirkland Associates we value our Candidates. You are extremely important to us and we want to ensure that you have the best experience possible. We introduced our ‘Candidate Promise’ to demonstrate our commitment to this and to illustrate the standards you can expect from us.

We treat every candidate as an individual and will do everything we can to build trust and put you at ease. From your first contact with us, we will give you an open and honest picture of how we feel we can work together.  We will work proactively to find you a suitable role and champion you to prospective employers.

Once we have engaged with you, we will provide regular updates on the progress of your applications, including feedback wherever possible and constructive advice where appropriate.

We encourage our candidates to keep in touch and will endeavour to reply to phone calls, messages and emails in 1-2 working days.

We understand how important it is for you to receive closure of an application, so guarantee that you will be given feedback on any interview you attend, along with guidance for future applications should you need it.

We will welcome your feedback in order to continuously improve our service.

When you register with us, we will carry out a thorough interview, so that we can build an accurate picture of your skills, abilities and requirements and effectively match you with suitable opportunities.

We pride ourselves on ensuring that you are as prepared as possible, so once an interview has been arranged, we will provide you with as much help, information and advice as you feel you need.

We will offer a range of added value services including local market information; CV advice; interview preparation and salary benchmarking.

We will treat you with respect, integrity and professionalism at all times, always acting with your best interests at heart and representing you in the most productive way possible.

We will never submit your details to a client without your permission and will always work with full confidentiality and discretion. We will only approach you about vacancies that we feel match your skills, experience and requirements and will only request information relevant to your applications.

We will be open and honest – we will not waste your time and will tell you if we do not have any suitable vacancies or do not feel we are able to assist you.
