Candidates services

We work hard to provide full support to all jobseekers.

As part of our commitment to deliver an exceptional experience to candidates, we are now offering a new candidate support service. This service appeals to individuals who are at a turning point in their careers and are seeking assistance in clarifying their thoughts to crystallise and implement the changes they find most relevant to them. Designed with the aim of providing a holistic service to job seekers, this service, which is free of charge to all candidates, is facilitated by a member of KONNEKT’s management team who is a counsellor-in-training. As customary to KONNEKT, this one-to-one session is delivered in a confidential and cordial setting.

Whether you are handling a career transition or dealing with stress or anxiety, KONNEKT can help you to identify the triggers and effectively manage them in order to bring the best out of every situation.

Interview process & care

Interview process & care

1. Meet

Let's get things started with a meeting

At our offices

You will be asked to come to our offices for an initial interview to help us better understand what you are after, be it seeking new horizons or an improvement on your current employment status. Whatever the reason may be, our role is to listen and understand your needs on a personal level.

Our meeting

The purpose of this initial meeting is twofold: it gives us valuable insight into your abilities and personality whilst also allowing you the chance to present yourself. Our best tip is for you to treat this meeting as an official interview. We always encourage candidates to adopt a policy of honesty. Committing yourself to being open and honest with us will put you in a better position for us to help you.

Feedback

At the end of your initial interview, we will give you instant feedback on your CV and our interview. It is important you view these comments constructively. Our job is to bring out the best of your abilities and help you excel. Our goal is for you to achieve your personal best.

During our interview, some questions might seem to be putting you on the spot. It is important that you not manage our impression of you, but rather be honest with your answer. Anything short of being honest limits our ability to help you.


2. Act

Following our interview, the matching starts

Building your profile

You will see us taking notes during the interview. This is to help us build a better understanding of you and highlight important details for future reference. When putting you forward for a position to our clients, we don't just send a CV. We also add details derived from the interview to further support your CV.

The matching

Your recruiter will not only start working on the position you applied for, but will also start matching you with other vacancies we would have on-going. In addition, your CV and career interests are discussed internally with colleagues who are working on vacancies which may suit your profile. We do this in order to maximise our efficiency and your return.

Confidentiality is key

We will always contact you for your consent before we forward your CV to our clients. We strongly believe that your job search is your own, and that it should be kept private. We understand the need for confidentiality and discretion to safeguard your current position and/or promotion prospects.


3. Expectations

Client interviews, feedback & the job

Job fit

Feedback on job fit from us is instant, sometimes even at interview stage. We will not set you up to fail. Should the specific role not be a good match, we will, instead, look into and discuss with you other roles which we think will suit your profile. We work tirelessly to ensure your satisfaction, as well as that of our clients, who are very demanding and work with us to present them with the best fit for the vacancy.

The job interview

Once you have been shortlisted, an interview is set with members of the company you are applying to work with. We will give you pointers and guidelines to help you prepare for this interview. What follows tends to take a little more time since applications may need to be reviewed by more than one person. We will keep you updated with feedback as soon as we have it, be it negative or positive.

"I ticked all the boxes, I had all the qualification & experience required and I still did not get the job."

We hear this frequently. This may very well be the case, however let us give you some perspective on the job application process.

1,000 applications
by 300 candidates


77 Interviewed


9 jobs secured

With these statistics in mind, it is still possible that you are not one of those 9 candidates! Not making the selection is not necessarily a reflection on your abilities. Bearing in mind that we only send our clients the candidates who best fit the specific requirements set by them, it is sometimes a matter of them looking into the finer details. So, a negative reply is not the end of the line. It is our job to look into other possibilities.


4. Care

We are here to support you throughout the entire journey

Your move


Help us help you. The profile we have on our system is accessible by you and viewed by us. We strongly suggest you keep your Konnekt profile active and up to date. Take time building your CV, it should be concise but detailed. Linkedin is also very much referred to throughout the recruitment process, so we do suggest that you keep this channel updated.


Setting tags to the preference section of your profile will enable you to regularly receive job alerts to your inbox.


Be proactive. Keep an eye out on our website for interesting jobs that you might not have considered but which may, however, tie in with your past experiences.

Recruiter support

We are committed to listening to you. Feel free to get in touch with your recruiter if you feel the need to discuss anything related to your job search. Do not be discouraged if you cannot reach us. We are often in and out of interviews however we are dedicated to helping you with your queries and we will get back to you as soon as possible. Alternatively, you can speak or leave a message with any other staff member. We are here to help you as a team.

Care support

Do you feel the need to discuss a concern you may have regarding our process? Send an email to our Care Manager on care@konnekt.com. We will be happy to discuss any issues you bring up. We are here to listen.
