    The Recruitment Process

    Step 1 – Get in touch

    If you’d like us to help you find your ideal role, then there are several ways you can let us know in the first instance.

    • Register your CV – This will ensure you are notified of any relevant job opportunities via our regular email alerts or directly from our consultants according to current and previous job titles on your CV. When a suitable role becomes available, one of our consultants will be in touch.
    • Search all available jobs and apply – If a particular role catches your eye, apply online and then one of our consultants will be in touch to find out more about you. If they think you are unsuitable for the role, they will still contact you to discuss other potential opportunities.
    • View our Local Branch Network and call or email your nearest Howard James Recruitment office or call our National Recruitment Helpline on 0333 577  2110 to discuss your next career move.

    Step 2 – Register with a Consultant

    Once we have your CV a consultant will call you to discuss your job search and if you would like Howard James Recruitment to represent you, we will formally register you with one of our specialist consultants.

    This registration can be via telephone, Video Conference or in person and should be treated as an interview and you should dress appropriately

    The purpose of the meeting is to discuss your experience and skills, realistic job aspirations and salary expectations. We’ll work through your CV, suggesting any improvements we feel will help and let you know of any suitable vacancies.

    We’ll also give you a greater insight into companies that could use your skills and other types of roles that you may not have considered.

    Honesty is vital on both sides during the meeting and your consultant will let you know if we think we can help. If we can, we will start championing you to our clients immediately and be in regular contact with you about potential opportunities.

    Equally, you must let us know if a role or employer is not for you or if you have been approached for the same role from another recruitment agency.

    Step 3 - Interview Stage

    Our ultimate aim is to secure an interview for you and once this is achieved, we will ensure you are fully briefed and have all the relevant information to give you the best chance of success including some hints and tips from your consultant.

    You will need to do your own research before the interview. Visit the company website and learn about the business, review the job description provided and highlight where your skills match.

    Following the interview, we ask that you call us with any feedback and thoughts on the role, company and people.

    We also ask clients for interview feedback as well and we will pass on feedback and any additional information to help both parties.

    If a second interview is required, we will arrange this with you and again brief you on any preparation required. If you are not successful, we will obtain detailed feedback from the employer and let you know.

    Step 4 - The Offer, Resignation and Starting your new job

    If you are successful at interview, we will handle the formal offer, negotiating on your behalf to ensure you get the best offer possible.

    We will help you manage the resignation process and ensure you have everything you need before your start date
