Candidate Terms of Business

Many thanks for your job application.

Your application is now in our client’s account and awaiting their action. If your application matches their requirements you may be invited for an interview. If the client elects to conduct the interview over the telephone, you will receive a SMS text message seeking your permission for us to pass your contact details to the client. And if the Client requests a face-to-face interview we will contact you directly in order to schedule the meeting.

If you accept an interview invitation, you will be deemed to have agreed to these terms, and will be bound by them – so don’t hesitate to check with us first if you have any questions.
