Hello!

Thank you for taking the time to consider a job with one of our lovely clients – we’re so glad to have you here.

 

As you may have guessed by now – Mployable isn’t your traditional recruitment agency – we work a bit differently.

What does that mean for you?

Well, a traditional recruitment agency will represent you in your job searches and pro-actively seek employment on your behalf.  Due to the nature of our subscription contracts with our retained clients, we only truly have the vacancies available on the site that you can see right now.

What you see is what you get!

If you like the look of one our vacancies, apply directly through the website.  Every single applicant gets a response before the vacancy closes.

If you’d like to talk about one of the vacancies we’re advertising, pop us an email – hello@mployable.co.uk and one of the team will answer your query, or be in touch to set up a call.

How we can help you

We know that trying to find a new job is hard work, so we’ve pulled together our top tips and advice, to support you during this challenging time.

Our Top 10 Tips for Job-hunting Success:

To help you in your searches, we’ve put together our top tips for success:

1. DO revise and revamp your current CV

If you’re looking for a career change, it’s important to update your employment history and skills set. If it’s been a long time since you last updated your resumé, try our easy-to-complete template download and watch this video to get some great hints and tips on how to create your best CV

 

2. DO apply for jobs that match your experience
Look carefully at your skillset and apply those skills to the job description you are interested in. There’s not much point applying for a role as a PR Consultant if you have no experience in PR. Most job adverts now have a job description attached to them so you can have a look at the person specification to see where your skills match up.
3. DO research the company you are interested in
Check out their website and see if their work ethos matches yours. Get to know their history and their values, as this is all important if you want to make a convincing first impression. Spend some time looking at videos or reading blogs/articles that have been written about what they do – you still need to make sure that this a company you want to be a part of and if it is, this kind of information will help you to align yourself with how you can help them to achieve some of their goals.
4. DO make sure you apply in the correct way
Does the advert ask for you to send a CV to someone via email or do they ask that you complete an online application form? It can be a more laborious process to do the latter, but if you can’t follow simple instructions on how to apply, this will have a negative effect on your whole application.
5. DO write a covering letter!
This is an important step that so many candidates fail to complete! A cover letter is a chance for you to express your passion for the role and why you think you would be a good fit for the company. If a recruiter receives an unexpectedly high response to their advert, this can be a way to help eliminate applicants without even looking at their CV. It’s a myth that recruiters don’t read them (good recruiters always do).
6. DO tap into your online and offline networks
In a client-led market, who you know is just as important as what you know. Be proactive about your searches, and don’t wait for opportunities to hit the job boards. Figure out who could connect you to key decision-makers in the businesses you want to work for and introduce yourself. If you don’t have any of the right connections use social networks like LinkedIn to make it happen for you.
7. DON’T use a generic cover letter!
We’ve seen letters that have had a different company name at the beginning or worse still a “x” where the company name should have been added. It’s like – ‘come on!’ Do yourself a favour and show you care.
8. DON’T underestimate the power of spelling and good grammar
If you are applying for a job that has stated you must have a good “eye for detail”, then to have a spelling mistake on your CV or cover letter is a huge no-no. Even if it doesn’t state that, most employers hate seeing spelling and grammar mistakes or typos. Have someone you trust check your CV and application before you hit ‘send’.
