Candidate Process

Here is an outline of the main steps in our process, as well as the mutual commitments involved.

The aim of the interview is to exchange information about a candidate’s achievements and career objectives and about the opportunity with our client. This way both parties, the candidate and the Alexander Hughes consultant, can decide whether a meeting with our client makes sense.

We guarantee the highest level of confidentiality. Any details and information which we gather about candidates will be communicated to our client only with their consent. We expect the same confidentiality from candidates with regards to any information which we, and possibly our client, may provide.

We are committed to submitting candidate applications only if we feel their professional experience and personal profile are judged to be a good fit and there is a genuine interest in this opportunity.

If both parties agree that a candidate is a good match, we will forward a confidential report to our client. This will include information from a candidate’s curriculum vitae, which will have been given to us. This information will be the candidate’s responsibility and may require validation (such as copies of qualifications, certificates of employment and pay-slips). Candidates may be asked to undergo tests, results of which are available upon request.

If and when our client confirms his interest in a candidate’s application, a first meeting with him or her will be organized either at the Alexander Hughes’ or client’s offices.

We are committed to keeping candidates informed of any developments during the recruitment process. After each contact with our client we expect the candidate to reaffirm the genuine interest they have for the post and to bring up any points which they feel may need to be clarified.

At the appropriate time we will need to take up references. We will inform candidates beforehand and will go over the question of confidentiality with them.

We will maintain contact with the successful candidate we have introduced as well as with the new employer during the first few months to ensure an effective onboarding.
