Working Interview

We understand that when you need a temporary solution that this is more often than not time pressured. That along with the fact we are currently in one of the most candidate driven markets ever means that our four-hour working interview should be the perfect solution. Our consultants are specialists in their markets and over 50% of our temporary roles are filled with candidates we have worked with before. They are ‘tried and tested’ with references in place to add to your peace of mind.

To demonstrate our confidence off the back of our track record*, we are pleased to offer 8 hour working interviews for all temporary assignments. The 8 hour working interview involves us putting trusted candidates forward to spend a eight-hour period 'working the job'. This allows you to assess their suitability to work for you. We are so confident that if you were not happy with their performance we would pay the candidate for the 8 hours with no charge if you decided not to proceed with them.  

*On 94% of occasions, our clients are happy to continue with the professionals after the 8 hours.
