Frequently Asked Questions
Can I send you my CVOf course! We may not have a matching position available at that moment but will certainly contact you when something suitable comes along. Probably 50% of the placements that we make originate from people sending through their CVs. You'll find a link to submit your CV in the menu or simply email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do you offer career advice?We offer it only in terms of how we see things as recruiters. We continuously speak to employers and job seekers and know what each are looking for and how they interact with each other. It's all about making a connection between these two parties and we're always in the middle of the conversation. You'll also find on this site blogs and guides on things like CV writing, interview preparation, etc.
Will you charge me if you place me?Absolutely not! The companies that we recruit for pay our fees. We do not charge individual job seekers.
Do you place students and fresh graduates?This is a tricky one and we're inclined to say "No". Our clients pay us to find exceptional people that they normally can't find themselves. A graduate or student is still an unknown entity in the workplace and there's no guarantee that a brilliant student will become an exceptional employee. Furthermore it's really quite easy to find a graduate (just visit the university) and we normally suggest to clients that they do this. Having said that we're always available to offer career advice to young people and share with them what we've picked up in many years of workplace experience.
Can you find me a job overseas?The two considerations here are a work permit and the cost of international relocation. Governments normally only issue work permits to foreigners where skill shortages exist and a hiring company will only assist you in getting a work permit if they can't find someone suitable locally. They will also only pay to relocate you when they have no other choice. You'll increase your chances dramatically if you get your own work permit and do your own relocation. If you get that out of the way we have associates in 6 continents who can help you to find a job on the other side.
Working For You
We select our clients carefully and never take on more work than we can handle. This allows us space to be thorough and make sure that nothing falls through the cracks.
When the pressure heats up, like on recruitment campaigns with multiple vacancies, we have a very tight network of fellow recruiters and sourcing specialists around the world that we can call on. These associates are also there to help out when we have to search for people in foreign countries.
We have regular clients in South Africa, sub-Saharan Africa and the Middle East and work with associate partners in Europe and the USA.
