Consult Recruitment COVID-19 Update

With the government imposing a nationwide lockdown, the entire Consult team is working from home until further notice.  We are fully remote enabled and while this is not business as usual – we are able to operate as per normal – just from the comfort of our homes.

I am a potential candidate – what does this mean for me?

Well – now is a great time for us to be in touch!  We are spending a lot of time updating with candidates as many clients are keen to hire post lockdown.  We are able to video meet online to start to get to know you and we are still currently searching for our clients on a number of roles across our specialties.

The best way to get in touch with us is:

  • Drop one of our consultants an email (all their details are on our team page here).  Give a brief background and what ideally you will be looking for and attach your resume or LinkedIn profile for reference.
  • Give one of us a call!  Mobile is better right now!

What else do I need to do?

  • Now is a great time to get yourself job ready.  Luckily for you, we’ve spent hundreds of hours blogging about this, so jump on over to our blog page here and start your research!
  • Get your LinkedIn profile updated too – you just never know what might be around the corner.
  • Instead of wasting your time on netflix – use this time to upskill – Udemy and other online courses can help you become a better you!
  • Keep your chin up – this time will pass.  Remember – it is not about counting the days, it is about making the days count – so make the most of this opportunity!

I am a potential employer – what does this mean for me?

We are still here and able to help you find people for your hard to fill roles.  We are 100% operational, just remotely. Obviously, we can’t come and visit, but we can hang out, zoom or skype.

While many businesses are waiting to see what happens post lockdown – we have a number who are using this time to interview candidates to get to the head of the queue for hiring. Now is actually a great time to do those initial interviews to get you ahead of your competition.

We are still here and can still help you find your dream job or your dream hire for that hard to fill role.  We’ve just acquired Halo Consulting into the Consult family so are now also able to help our clients with their hard to fill IT roles too.

Be well, be safe and make the most of the time you have to move your career and your business forward!
