GREYCOAT LUMLEYS EXPECTATIONS
When registering with us, we understand you might have high expectations. Our name is synonymous with superior service which is the very reason we have such longstanding and valued clients.
The nature of what we do means all Greycoat Lumleys candidates need to meet certain criteria.
Below is an insight into what we look for throughout the selection process:
Recent, related experience or extraordinarily strong transferable skills from relevant work situations
Often, our clients seek candidates with at least two years’ experience in a relevant, similar environment. For some jobs – in childcare for example – significantly more experience may be required
Notable, checkable references
Contacting your referees in advance and asking them to respond to reference check calls in a timely manner is a big help!
Well-presented CV with good grammar, spelling and concise information
A consistent and impressive work history without gaps (gaps in your work history need to be accounted for)
Honesty – make sure you back up your CV and application with evidence of experience
OUR TOP TIPS FOR A GREAT CV
A super CV is the best way to introduce yourself to our agency. Our top tips would be:
Remember that your CV is the first impression that an agency or prospective employer will get of you, so it is essential to get it right
A 2-page rule is a good guide, though if you need to use more space to include all your relevant experience, don't be afraid to run to more
Start with your most recent job first, make sure all the dates are correct and you can explain any gaps
Include details of all your work experience that is relevant to the position you are applying for. The reader won't know that you have housekeeping experience, for example, if you don't include it in your CV
If you are going to include a photo on your CV, ensure that it is a photo that will present you professionally. A holiday snap will not be appropriate.
Always use a professional sounding email address. Personal email addresses can sometimes give the wrong impression
Don't use lots of different fonts and colours or use all BLOCK CAPITALS as this is very difficult to read and does not look very professional
Most importantly, be honest! You do not want to find yourself on the other side of the world in a job, or on a trial, where your capabilities do not match up to what you claim on your CV
