Below are some of the more frequently asked questions we receive. Should you not find what you're looking for simply click on the link below and send us an email or give us a call and speak with a Consultant directly.
How do I register with Tiger Recruitment Ltd?
There are a number of ways you can register with Tiger. Firstly, you can send us your CV via the Candidate registration form on the homepage. Secondly, you can apply for one of the jobs listed on our website or lastly you can email your CV to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you take the latter option, please make a note in the email of the type of positions you are interested in.
In all cases, on receipt of your CV, a Consultant will assess your skills and experience and if we believe we can assist you in your search, we will call you to arrange an appointment for you to come and register in our offices to discuss your career prospects.
How long does registering take at your offices and will I need to bring anything with me?
One of our Consultants will meet you for 30 minutes to discuss your experience to-date, skills and what you are looking for. You may well be introduced to another Consultant on your visit and any available opportunities will be run past you at this stage. Please bring a photo ID and utility bill to confirm address details with you as well as certificates of any qualifications. These include secretarial diplomas and all educational qualifications e.g. GCSE's/O-Levels, A-Levels, Degree etc. Our testing is carried out online to make the registration process as quick as possible.
Should I wear a suit and treat registering like a formal interview?
No, but it is helpful to be smartly presented. Whilst we like to consider your registering with us as more of a chat than an interview, it is important to remember that first impressions, including presentation, attitude and punctuality will be noted by our Consultants as part of our Candidate assessment.
Will I need to complete any tests when I register with you?
After our meeting, we will send you a typing and MS Office tests to complete remotely at home via your email account. The results will be emailed back to us.
How long does it take to get a job after I have registered with you?
We can never guarantee how long the job hunting and interview process will take. This can be dependent on many factors from the type of role you're looking for and what level of experience you have, to the time of year it is. We estimate that most Candidates on our books will find a role in the first 3 months of being registered with us.
How can I get the best out of Tiger Recruitment Ltd?
We are here to help you with your next career step and it's important that you feel you can ask us for advice at every stage. We will advise you on setting out your CV correctly and coherently as well as preparing you for interviews and recommending realistic salary expectations. You will also be given a copy of our “Black Book” to take away with you, which is full of useful hints and tips. For your part, make sure that you keep us updated with all your interviews and reply to our calls promptly.
Should I call in regularly to update you on my availability?
Please feel free to call and update us with your working situation. On the Permanent side, it is only really necessary to call in if your situation has changed or if you would like to send through an updated CV. On the Temporary side, please make sure you call in regularly to let us know your availability. Communication with the Temporary department is vital and can make the difference between getting a Temp assignment or not!
How important are computer skills to obtaining a new job?
In this day and age, very! If your skills are not up to scratch (typically we are looking for Candidates to type at 45wpm+ and have intermediate MS Office skills) we recommend that Candidates either refresh their skills or look into various Computer Training programmes (we can advise on this when you register). In today's workplace it seems that Clients no longer (or rarely) require shorthand skills, and by contrast, knowledge of MS PowerPoint is often a prerequisite. Please do not hesitate to ask our Consultants for further advice on improving your skills.
