How long is the process?
We assess each application individually and objectively. Because we can receive up to 100 applications for each job, it is impossible for us to contact every candidate. Through our own internal assessment processes, and continued discussion with our client during the recruitment project, we select and shortlist those candidates who best meet the required criteria for the position. Therefore, it may take as long as two weeks before you hear back from us again whether you have been shortlisted.
If you are invited in for an interview, your consultant will ask you a range of behavioural-based questions that have been tailored to the needs of the position. This is a good time to ask any questions you have about the role and the company. Based on this interview, your consultant will decide whether or not you will be put forward to meet the client. If you are not successful at this stage, your consultant will discuss why not, and perhaps suggest alternatives.
Meeting the client
If the client would like to meet with you, your consultant will let you know. Sometimes you may be required to go back for a second interview with the client before final selection is made. Before an offer, though, we always do verbal reference checking. Sometimes we may be asked to conduct a psychometric assessment as well. Only after all these integral steps have been completed, will your consultant facilitate the offer on behalf of the client.
You have been selected as the preferred candidate. We will send you a formal letter confirming the details of the position and the only thing to do then is resign your old position and get ready for your exciting new job!
