For our Candidates
We love building careers for candidates, and teams for clients. The Telecoms Engineer who came to install the networks into our new office found that out when he walked in on a Monday morning looking very downbeat about feeling stuck in the career he was in, and walked out with some information about roles that might suit him, and businesses to research, oh, and a nice dusting of motivation. Feeling stuck in a non fulfilling role is one of the worst feelings you can have. If you feel you have more to offer the world, but haven’t identified the right company or role then pick up the phone. We are experienced Talent Experts and will help you whether you are seeking a permanent or interim position.
Roles that we regularly fill are within Sustainability, Engineering, Construction and Support areas such as Human Resources. Due to our consistent and quality approach, we enjoy long standing relationships with our clients who are amongst the best employers in the UK.
All candidates registered with Hill and Jago have one thing in common. Commitment. Commitment to their customers, their employer, and their career. Upon application we will ask you to tell us more about yourself than just your CV. We will want to understand what you are looking for in that next career step, and to match you with the opportunity that will enable you to shine.
CV – Curriculum Vitae can be literally translated to “Course of Life”. Your CV should show the course that your career has taken, although an autobiography is not required…
We speak to many candidates who just don’t know where to start. Why would you? You are great within your chosen career, it doesn’t always translate that you will be great at writing a CV. Don’t give up hope however. There is lots of help out there, and at Hill and Jago we will work with you to ensure that your CV represents you in the best possible light.
Here are some tips for you:
Template – There are an abundance of free templates on line. You don’t need anything too flashy, your experience and career history need to do the talking. The CV should contain your name and contact details (phone and email are key). A short personal profile of no more than 5 sentences, and a career history stating employer, dates and role for each position. You should also include educational achievements, and something concise about you in terms of your hobbies and interests.
Language – Don’t make assumptions. Think about how you would describe your role to your friends and use this terminology. Don’t fall into the trap of using in-house acronyms and jargon. Use language and key words that are used within your industry sector, not those that are only use by your current employer. You want your prospective employer to understand fully what you do, and what value you can add to them.
Perspective – Tell us about your achievements, not just what you did, but what was the outcome. Many clients want to understand if you have simplified a process, if you have identified a way to save cost. If there is value that you have added by going the extra mile, tell us on your CV.
Keep it current – If you are picking up a CV that your haven’t updated in 10 years, ensure that you read through it and correct any mistakes. Many candidates make the mistake of simply making the addition of new paragraph for a new role. Ensure that the style of language is consistent throughout the document.
Covering Letter – Make your employer feel wanted! Your covering letter is your opportunity to explain exactly why you are applying for this role and with this employer.
