Do I need to have a CV?
It’s important to be able to summarise all of your experience, qualifications and personal details in one single document, as this is what we use when we first approach our clients with potential candidates. If you need help writing your CV, go to the candidate area where you will find our CV Builder which will enable you to create your own perfect CV in just a few simple steps.
How do I register with Kate+Co?
Visit our candidate area, click on upload CV or complete the Candidate Contact form in Contact us. One of our consultants will then contact you to arrange an initial interview. Alternatively, just give the office a call on 0121 7050077 to set up an interview.
What should I bring to my initial interview?
We will need proof of identification (for example a passport or Birth Certificate together with proof of your National Insurance number). If you have any references, please bring those along too. If you are applying for a temporary role you will also need to bring your bank details with you.
What qualifications do I need to have?
We place candidates in a wide range of roles which require varying degrees of experience. While substantial office experience and administrative qualifications are essential for some roles, not all positions require this level of expertise. What’s more important for many employers is that their support staff are reliable, polite and conscientious. When you register we’ll ask you to take a series of tests which will evaluate your spelling, numeracy and computer literacy. If you would like to sharpen up your skills, why not try our free on line assessments which you will find in the Candidate area under Training and Testing.
What kind of jobs will you put me forward for?
Kate+Co specialises in placing candidates in Business Support, Human Resource and Finance roles. Before we begin the jobfinding process, we will consult with you about what kind of positions you’re interested in and what type of companies you’d like to work for.
Do you only supply temporary staff?
No. Kate+Co handles both temporary and permanent assignments and which kind of position we put you forward for will be up to you. Many candidates prefer the flexibility of temporary working, while others like the stability of a permanent position. If you’re not sure which type of role is right for you, just arrange an appointment with one of our consultants, who will talk you through the options.
How long will it take me to get placed?
This varies from candidate to candidate and depends on your individual circumstances and the kind of job you’re looking for. The important thing to remember is that we will only put you forward for jobs we think will suit you at companies where we think you’ll enjoy working. We don’t go for quick-fix solutions as they rarely work. Instead, we believe it’s better to take our time and make sure we get it right.
