Growing Businesses Building Careers

Case Study 3

Ours Leeds office often sees candidates calling in to register “on spec” due to its city centre location.

A short time ago we were visited in this was by Alex Stork. He arrived at our office with his CV and we sat down with him to go through his career aspirations.

We were quickly able to recognise that Alex had stronger skills and experience than was apparent in his CV. In fact, he had a perfect background for a particularly tricky job we had available that required a difficult combination of skills.

The role required someone with the ability to sell products but also to have competent administration and project management skills. A difficult brief, but this was just the sort of job Alex was looking for! We also knew that Alex was the perfect candidate for our client, so we got to work with Alex to prepare and strengthen his CV. As soon as the client saw his CV they were keen to meet with him and subsequently he was offered the job!

This successful outcome was a result of the candidate’s initiative in finding an agency that listens and our thorough understanding of our client’s criteria.

“My experience with Headway Recruitment was first class from start to finish. My consultant, Annabel and her colleagues were very professional in their approach and provided me with very focussed options based on what I told them about my career intentions. Importantly they delivered everything they said they would, when they said they would. This integrity I find is seldom come by. Thank you for all your help in putting my in touch with my new employers.”
