Throughout the process Lorena has been personable and friendly whilst being highly professional going the 'extra mile' as mediator between myself and my new employer. I have felt she has always given 100% in my recruitment process.” French candidate

The better prepared you are, the more relaxed and comfortable you will be.

Company Reputation comes out on top!

Company Reputation comes out on top!

Following a recent European survey targeting active candidates across all levels of seniority and function, when asked,

If you were offered 2 roles with exactly the same salary, what would the key factor be when making your decision?”

Company Reputation has marginally come out on top. This is closely followed by Flexible Working Hours, Company Products, Progression Opportunity and Location of Role. It would appear that benefits such as Pension and Healthcare are of less concern to job seekers.
