Applying for Jobs
Many organisations, large and small, across all business sectors outsource the recruitment
of new employees to professionals. CPL’s experienced recruitment consultants work
with both the hiring organisation and candidates to match the most suitable candidate
with the role and organisational culture.
CPL’s consultants realise that a new position, change of company or sector can impact
on the future direction of a candidate’s career. With this in mind, recruitment
consultants at CPL ensure that they understand candidates’ career plans so that
they can help them make career choices that lead them on the career path they wish
First meeting with a consultant
The registration process involves a meeting between a consultant and the candidate
to walk through their CV, discussing the candidates’ previous roles and responsibilities,
skills and future career objectives.
Consultants will also give details of any job vacancies matching the candidate’s
skills, experience and career aspirations. The future opportunities within the hiring
organisations, as well as their organisational culture, will also be discussed.
Once the candidate has identified which vacancies they are interested in, their
recruitment consultant will forward on their CV to the company.
Sending CVs on spec
Candidates can also become masters of their own destiny by getting their recruitment
consultant to submit a CV to a companies the candidate would like to work for that
do not have any advertised current vacancies. Candidates have a choice of their
CV and full details being submitted on spec, or a CV can be sent on a no-name basis
– which often suits candidates who are working for another organisation do not want
their details to be disclosed.
