  • How do I contact you?

Call us on 078340973, fax us on 078340974, or email the person you would like to contact.

  • I don't have any transport?
    We are able to offer limited transport, however, it is your responsibility.
  • Should I wear a suit to a job interview?
    You should attend an interview looking clean, smart and dressed to impress the potential employor that you are the right person to emply.
  • Update Your Resume
    When a position is advertised it is not uncommon for up to 200 replies to be received. The purpose of your C.V is to get you past the application stage and onto the interview list.

    Most C.V's get a 15-20 second scan and a decision to move them to the next stage is made from there.

    Although the type of job you are applying for will have a bearing on the style of your C.V, there are a few basic points that most employers look for in any application.

    • Your Name
    • Your Address
    • All your contact numbers
    • Relevant work experience
    • Work History
    • References
    • Transport Status ( Licenses etc )
    • Any relevant qualifications
  • Can you help me with my job applications?
    We offer all sorts of services. Our aim is to help you find the right employment for you.
  • Some C.V tips:
    • Start with the best stuff first. Your name and a 'one liner' about your unique skills you bring to the job.
    • Learn something about the company you are applying to and write your covering letter accordingly.
    • Make sure it is clear and well set out. A C.V. that is hard to read won't be read.
    • Use a different colour or type of paper to help your C.V get noticed.
    • Try not to go over 5 pages.
  • Interview Tips
    It's important to make a good impression. So here are our top ten interview tips...
    • Don't be late. Even if it means going to the interview venue the day before to find out how long it takes to get there, leave yourself plenty of time. Thank your interviewer for the opportunity to meet with them.
    • Body jewelry, studs etc may not be suitable for all jobs. Remember that a job interview is not the best place to try and make a personal stand on individual fashion.
    • Dress appropriately for the position. It's not always necessary to wear a suit and tie for a laboring interview, but you wouldn't wear overalls to an interview for a sales job.
    • Understand the position you are applying for. Get a full job description if possible that outlines all tasks required by the employer.
    • Get to know something about the company you are applying to. Read their advertising and visit their web site.
    • An interview is not the time for false modesty. If you know you have the skills for the job and know you can do it well say so.
    • Be honest. If you exaggerate you will most likely be found out.
    • Don't dominate the interview. You have two ears and one mouth. Use them in proportion. Listen to what the interviewer is asking and answer accurately. Not what you think or assume was asked.
    • Prepare some of your own questions about the job. Show that you are interested in that particular job and not just something that will give you a pay cheque.
    • Don't overstay your welcome. If the interview has finished don't try to drag things out with general conversation. Always find out before you leave what the next step is: Are they getting back to you? When? Is there anything else you should do next?
