“Having been unemployed for while I started to believe getting the job I wanted would not happen for me. Luckily I came across Aria Recruitment. Maria Prentice helped me so much. We re worked my CV and she helped me prepare for interviews, and as soon as that happened I started to receive phone calls and offers for interviews. I have no doubt that without her help I would not have got the job I am currently in- which is the exact job I was looking for. I highly recommend Aria Recruitment and Maria.”

Your Career
ADVICE ON FINDING THE RIGHT CAREER FOR YOU
  • What are your strengths and weaknesses

Your CV
TIPS ON THE LAYOUT OF YOUR CV
  • Keep your CV very simple and TRANSPARENT
  •  Make sure you have a personal profile right at the beginning, who you are ( your academic background,  what you have done, work experience to date in a nut shell, and most importantly, what you are looking for.)
  • Be sure to cover all dates from Education through to your current role. ( if there is a gap show that gap with a short simple explanations, your CV should not “beg any questions”.)
  • Give continuity to the pay out of your CV
  • Make sure you have the company name the nature of the business the department you work in and how many other people working in the department coupled with who you were reporting to. Remember there is a big difference between working in a small organisation to a large organisation showing you have worked in both is a great selling point!
Your Covering Letter
TIPS ON HOW TO PUT TOGETHER A COVERING LETTER
  • Covering letters should be there to apply for a specific role in a specific company.
  • Make sure you have done your research on the organisation
  • Be sure you have some understanding of the culture of the organisation, i.e. the company values/goals
  • Be sure you understand the responsibilities within the role.

1st paragraph: express your interest in the role and the organisation initially and why this fits in with what you are looking for.

2nd paragraph: talk about what you have learnt about the organisation as whole ( show you have done your research) then talk about your transferable skills and what you feel you can bring to the role/Department/organisation.

GUIDANCE WITH YOUR JOB INTERVIEW

How to prepare for your interview:

  • Do your research and come up with questions for the interview ( make sure you take these into the interview with you) this shows you have taken the time to try to understand both the organisation and its purpose.
  • Look at the department and what the departments purpose is and how this fits with the rest of the organisation
  • Look at the job spec and ask about things you are not so clear on.
Your Covering Letter
INTERVIEW QUESTIONS
  • Ask about the team and who you would be reporting too?
  • Ask questions around the processes and systems used?
  • Ask what type of person they are looking for in this role? ( this gives you time to sit back and decide if this is what you want)

NEVER FORGET AN INTERVIEW IS A TWO WAY PROCESS AND YOU NEED TO BE PREPARED ENOUGH TO FIND OUT IF THIS IS THE RIGHT ROLE FOR YOU!!

Process
CANDIDATE SELECTION

All our candidates are carefully selected using various methods such as high profile media advertising, social media platforms, and recommendations and referrals. For clients looking at specialist fields of expertise, we source specialist and academic job boards, and industry publications.

  • Pre-Selection  A timesaving process that allows us to review and short list applications with the most relevant and appropriate backgrounds.
  • In Depth Interviews  At this stage we perform in depth interviews and evaluations according to clients’ criteria. This allows us to narrow down a final shortlist of people who not only have the relevant skills and experience, but are also best suited to the core values of the department and the organisation.
  • Covering Letter   All candidates applying for permanent positions are required to present a personalised covering letter in support of their application, which should give a detailed description of transferable skills and evidence of further research and reasons for their application, adding value to the selection process.
  • Briefing  All candidates will have been fully briefed on every aspect of the role, department, and company culture, and will have a genuine interest in both the position and the organisation itself.
  • CVs   Candidates must provide a current CV, which we can advise on, providing up to date information on preferred content and layout. At Aria we do NOT provide a standard CV layout or actual CV formatting as we believe it should come from the individual themselves. However all the information provided will have been crosschecked at interview.
  • References Most employers prefer to take up their own references for permanent staff. However, we are very happy to do this at the clients’ request. We require 2 references from all temporary staff prior to assignment from their last 2 employers. These are confirmed in writing. In the event of immediate bookings we will obtain verbal references followed up with written references within 14 days.
  • Legal & Policy Requirements  All staff provided by Aria are required to supply 2 forms of official identification. We will verify the validity of all visas and work permits.
  • Induction  All temporary staff are provided with a handbook on confirmation of their booking in which the code of conduct for temporary Aria employees is clearly laid out.
  • Terms of Engagement   The temporary member of staff is then required to sign and keep a copy of the contract.

KIND WORDS FROM HAPPY CANDIDATES

I was kept updated throughout the process and received prompt and courteous responses to any queries I had, which made the process easy to manage whilst still working in my previous role at the same time. I felt that my career and happiness were of prime concern and not only was it considered whether I would be the right candidate for the role, but also whether it was the right role for me. Overall, the application process undoubtedly made the interview stage much smoother and effective for me and played a huge part in me eventually securing the position. I would recommend without hesitation

Lauren Jennings | Case Manager/Solicitor

Maria showed not only an excellent understanding of our requirements but also a phenomenal tenacity to deliver the most exceptional candidates. Her in depth knowledge of the function and her ability to understand the nuances of a very demanding role meant that she delivered exceptional candidates on time and with the most thorough of briefings”. 

I would not hesitate to recommend Maria and her company to anyone needing an exceptional, motivated recruiter who really understands her market and her client’s needs.

Symon Hughes | Resourcing Project Consultant

I would recommend Maria at Aria recruitment without hesitation …on a number of occasions, she has taken the time to understand not just the details on the post to be filled but also to ensure that the individual will “fit” with the rest of the team. Whist this is critical in a smallish team, I think it is invaluable in any workplace. Additionally Maria has always kept me updated as she goes through the often time consuming search for the right person whilst not burdening the organisation with interviewing more than a selection that she has often honed down to a manageable few.

Gerda Goldinger | Legal and Regulatory Director

Maria is a delight to work with. She is honest, thorough and totally reliable. Being fully aware of the needs of our business, Maria sends us only the best candidates that are a true fit for the position.

Sara Megaw | HR Manager

Maria is exceptionally good at her job. She knows how to ask the right questions so she doesn't waste your time sending you the wrong candidates. She is a natural communicator and understands completely what we need. She has first class interview skills and works tirelessly to identify the right candidates for the role. I would not wish to take our business anywhere else!

Susanne Malim | Creative & Managing Director

I couldn’t have found anyone better than Maria at Aria Recruitment to help me find a new job! She was always there for any questions I had and guided me through the whole process very professionally. Thanks to her I found the perfect matching job. I would always highly recommend her!

Verena Sinewe | Project/Account Manager
