Face-to-face interview with Signature

We feel a face-to-face meeting is important – it helps us to build an understanding of you so that we can match you with the right family and also enables you to get to know us.

During the interview:

  • We’ll go through your candidate registration form, making sure we have a thorough understanding of your career, qualifications and expectations in your next role
  • We will also discuss details of any current roles we have which may appeal to you

*N.B. we conduct all candidate interviews in person, unless COVID guidelines determine that a face-to-face meeting via Zoom, Facetime etc. is required

Client Interview Prep

The Signature team will undertake the following:

  • Check your references – we try and collate as many as we can, but as long as we have at least two long term references checked we can submit you for roles
  • Work with you to help prepare for interviews, including offering advice on creating the best CV and providing tips on interview techniques
  • Create a profile for you which will summarise your CV and experiences, to be shared with clients alongside your CV
05

Interviews

We’ll be in touch with you to arrange interviews and subsequent trials for the jobs you’re interested in. An overview of the process is provided below:

  • We’ll always email you a confirmation of this including the type of interview (phone, face to face, video etc), time of the interview and location if necessary
  • The email will also include contact numbers so you can reach out to the client directly if you’re having problems getting there on time or finding their house etc
  • After your interview or trial, please do call or email your consultant with feedback as soon as you can
  • Your consultant will also reach out to the client for comment and feed this back to you as soon as possible
