Apply to Connected Consulting
If you are interested in submitting your CV, please send Connected Consulting a copy by email here.
Our first contact with you as a candidate will be over the telephone. We will present live opportunities and gauge your initial level of interest. If positive we will provide further detailed information and agree next steps.
Face to face screening
Wherever possible we will meet you, to ascertain your objectives, motivations and to evaluate your fit against the role, its demands and the Client organisation. We also use this time as an opportunity to coach you on interview presentation.
We will help you pull together a professional CV which is tailored to draw out all of the relevant information required for the role to be applied for. Our aim is to present you in the very best way.
Along with your CV Connected will prepare a short report on your fit as a candidate and will present in a professional manner to the Recruitment Business Partner or Line Manager and will endeavour to provide feedback on your candidature.
Once a client interview has been booked we will brief you ahead of that interview. The briefing will focus on; the role, the interviewers, likely structure and questions and a Competency Based Interview coaching session
Following all interviews we will carry out a full interview debrief to understand the structure of the interview, your thoughts on the organisation and role. We will be looking to understand what you felt went well as well as what didn’t. This information is then presented back to the Client.
We will provide you with guidance and counsel on the offer presented. We will help you shape questions you have on the contractual paperwork issued and negotiate on your behalf where necessary to achieve the best outcome for both you and the Client.
Post placement care
We continue to contact you regularly through your notice period, helping to provide resignation and notice period negotiation coaching. We also remain in contact, with a planned call in your first week, at 1 month and at the end of 3 months. We will then endeavour to remain in contact throughout your career.

Connected Consulting made a real difference by closely matching my skills and experience with suitable positions whilst offering advice in various areas throughout the whole recruitment process.
