Get the basics right
There is no right or wrong way to write a CV but there are common sections that you should cover. These include:
- Personal and contact information - Education and qualifications - Work history with full dates From and To - Experience highlighting main expertise - Key skills and main achievements - Hobbies and interests - References
Presentation is key
A successful CV is always carefully and clearly presented. The layout should be clean and well structured.
Remember the CV hotspot
The upper middle area on the first page is where the recruiter’s eye will naturally fall first, so make sure to include your most important information there.
Keep it concise
Stick to no more than two pages of A4. Keep it clear, concise, short and sweet.
Tailor the CV
Understand the job application, and tailor your CV accordingly. Create a CV specifically for the role that you are applying for.
Make the most of your skills & interests
Under interests, highlight the things that show off skills you’ve gained, and employers look for. Include anything that shows how diverse, interested and skilled you are.
Use firm and positive language to describe your work history and experience sections. Use words such as “developed”, “organised” and “achieved”.
Keep your CV updated
It’s crucial to review your CV on a regular basis and add any new skills and/or experience that’s missing. Every job that you apply to is different, and it’s important that the CV’s you send for these jobs reflect the differing jobs, skillsets and companies.
When you register with us, we will take the time to get to know you, your skillset and experience. You will be allocated an experienced Senior Consultant the specialises within your Market Sector who will keep you up to date with new opportunities.
We will offer guidance and support to make sure that your CV is highlighting your strengths that are relevant to the particular role we are representing you for.
Before your interview, your Consultant will call you to prepare for what to expect. We know our clients well through the strong relationships we have built so will provide helpful tips, so you perform at your best.
Your Consultant will share the outcome of your interview as soon as we have heard this from the Client, usually within 48 hours. We recognise feedback is crucial for a Candidate, regardless of the outcome of the interview.
On successful placement, your Consultant will talk you through the offer from the Client in detail and explain the Onboarding process including the rate breakdown, as well as providing advice on the payrolling mechanisms on offer.
It is important to us to stay in contact with you and we regularly hold Eaglecliff events that you’ll be invited to. Of course, we are also always on the other end of the phone to assist throughout your ongoing Assignment.
Managing contracts is a core component of the recruitment lifecycle; but one that is often overlooked.
The majority of the Assignments that we cover are within the Professional Services domain. Traditionally Contractors have provided their Services through their own Limited Company or through an Umbrella Company but with the changes to the IR35 Legislation in 2021, the model is now changing to one of a PAYE mechanism only.
This means that we are now only working with FCSA accredited umbrella companies as this provides the best solution for the Contractors that we work with and provides the Hiring Companies that we work for with a compliant and reliable solution. There is no point in taking risks and then being investigated by the HMRC if a non-compliant solution has been put in place. This could result in retrospective Tax demands when things are not properly looked after.
An Umbrella Company takes care of all the hard work for you: Deducting Income Tax and National Insurance via Pay As You Earn (PAYE) mechanisms which means there is less admin for you as the Contractor. We have strong partnerships with two: Giant and Brookson One and you can talk to either of these to ask for an Illustration of your Take Home Pay and the Benefits that both companies are able to provide for you. As a Financial Services Company, an umbrella company can offer more flexibility than we can as an Agency in getting you paid.
If you prefer not to work with an Umbrella Company, you can also work through our own Internal PAYE mechanism where we pay you Nett of all Statutory Deductions. This may well not offer the same flexibility with various aspects such as how we manage Pension Contributions but for some Contractors or Temporary Workers it is preferable to keep everything in one place with Eaglecliff Recruitment. The decision is yours to make.
Full support from our own Contractor Support team is provided through every stage of each Contractor’s assignment from the day your offer is confirmed through to the day you finish your Assignment. We always meet face-to-face with as many Contractors as possible and when we can’t, we hold regular on-line meetings to check everyone is happy. This includes confirmation prior to the Start Date that everything is in place, week one checks with our Accounts team and checking payment and payment dates are all clear and agreeable. Ongoing support is always available by simply sending an email or by calling 01732 464 644 at any time.
For a small number of Consultants, we are able to work to SOWs and provide consultancy agreements.
Help is always available for any aspect of your Assignment and we are always pleased to help in any way that we can.
