Jobseekers who are considering using recruitment agencies often ask questions such as 'What happens when I send my CV to an agency?', 'How does the process work?' or 'Do I have to pay?'
Therefore, we have provided you with a snapshot of how Reperio Human Capital work.
Stage 1 - The Job
The first stage normally begins with a job advert that you are interested in and have applied to online. Once you have sent your CV, the relationship between candidate and recruitment agency starts with a confidential phone call between one of our Specialist Recruitment Consultants and the candidate.
Stage 2 - The Discussion
The initial discussion determines what exactly the candidate is looking for in their next role. You may be asked why you want to change jobs, what you enjoy most about your current role and what aspects you would like to change. Based on the information provided, the consultant will recommend relevant opportunities catered to your specific needs. If you are not interested in any of the roles, they will keep you updated with any roles in the future that may be of interest to you. We use our connections and valued clients to open the door to opportunities that are not always publicised.
We ensure that your details will not be shared with any company without your knowledge and consent.
Stage 3 - The Interview
Once a client expresses an interest in speaking with you, it’s time to arrange interviews. We know it can be difficult to slip out of the office for interviews, especially if you have a couple of companies who want to talk to you, so we’ll work with the client and candidate to line up times that work for everyone (saving you the hassle).
Our recruitment consultants want to give you the best possible chances of success when it comes to interviews. Therefore, we will provide some hints and tips on how to deliver the best impression of you.
Debriefing you after each interview is also important. We will want to find out what you like about the job and what you’re not sure of to ensure that you and the company are on the same page. It also allows you to clarify anything else that you may be wondering, ensuring that you are fully informed at each stage.
Stage 4 - The Negotiation
We know that negotiating your own salary can be an uncomfortable conversation when sitting at the interview table, giving a figure that is too low can limit your earning potential and giving a figure that is too high risks losing the interviewer’s interest altogether. Having a skilled negotiator to advise the company and fight your corner avoids this awkward discussion and gives a better chance of receiving the figure you have in mind. All part of the service!
Stage 5 - The Offer
If you’re happy with the offer, then it’s just a case of accepting, celebrating and taking care of the admin before you start. Don’t worry, we will help you through the paperwork and make sure all the i’s are dotted and the t’s crossed before you start.
We understand that if you currently have a job, resignation can be a tough conversation, especially if you have a good relationship with your boss and colleagues. However, we can advise you how to approach this and leave things on good terms – it’s a conversation that people have every day.
Although every company is different, this will give you an idea of how recruitment agencies work.
