Stand Out from the Crowd

Headhunters are circling, Stand out from the Crowd

We offer a wide range of candidate services to help you increase your interview rate, be seen ahead of other applications and stand out from the crowd.  

The competition for roles is becoming increasingly fierce, and the workload of hiring managers to sort applications and filter out the right ones is becoming harder. 

Our consultants are at the forefront of the application process, seeing over 1,000 CV’s and Resumes each week.  We are well placed to advise on how to gain a competitive edge when it comes to your CV, social media presence and application methodology.  Unlike other CV writing/advisory services out there, our success as a business is down to our ability to place the right CV’s in front of the right people at the right time.  All of our consultants have been trained by experienced commodity recruiters and know the likes and dislikes of hiring managers across commodity trading, brokerage and operations roles.

What happens to my applications?

Recruiters and hiring managers spend an average of 6 seconds looking at each CV that comes into them for a specific role 

On the face of it, quite concerning.  That being said, knowing this fact means you can adjust your profile to grab a recruiters attention in a clear, concise and ‘quick to see’ way when you put your CV in front of them.  We are one of those ‘recruiters’ and can help with how to structure your CV to get the right stage time in front of the right people.

On average we receive 300 applications per vacancy that we advertise; that’s a lot

One of the difficulties in recruitment is a feeling of distance between the candidate and the recruiter.  Unfortunately with all vacancies, large proportions of applications are from those who are ‘spamming’ their CV out without looking at the job advert, meaning the relevant profiles can become a drop in the ocean.  We can advise on tips to stand out from the crowd and be seen amongst a boatload of others

70% of employers search for applicants on Facebook and other social media prior to speaking with them

In the modern world, most people have a social media presence of some sort.  Many hiring managers will check out a potential applicant online early on in the process and make an opinion on this basis.  It is critical to know what our online presence is, and what impression this gives off to potential employers.  We can guide on the dos and donts of social media and recruitment. 

Only 15-20% of cover letters are read by recruiters/hiring managers

I think most of us have been advised at some point to ‘always write a cover letter’ when applying for a role, but if only 15% of cover letters are read, what’s the point?  One of the big issues with cover letters is they often contradict the CV or Resume that is attached alongside.  We can advise on how to incorporate this into your CV to achieve the most effective results when it comes to personalising your profile to a role.

LinkedIn Keywording: Our consultants are experts at LinkedIn SEO and Key-wording.  Many of our relationships are formed by our presence on LinkedIn, with over 6 million impressions each year, our brand gets around for a small team.  The majority of hiring managers that we work with conduct a brief LinkedIn search before engaging us, to see if there are suitable candidates in their network they could reach out to?  If your LinkedIn isn’t detailed or key-worded correctly, you wont come up!

Native Language Revisions: We have numerous native English speaking consultants on our team who can assist you with amending your CV and its wording to suit international roles.  Many CV’s written in English as a second language can be misinterpreted and can indeed undersell your experience to potential hiring managers where there is a language barrier.  We put this right; ensuring that your experience is demonstrated in a grammatically correct, clear and concise way.  Read more…

Automation in Recruitment: Like it or loath it, automation is becoming a key part of many internal recruiters jobs.  Job boards use it and some internal CRM systems filter out candidates automatically based on the key-wording/prevalence of certain phrases contained in a CV.  We use these job boards and understand the tricks to coming up top.  Millions of candidates upload their CV to job boards each day; we help make sure yours is seen.  Read more about automation/CV SEO…
