“The team at ROC truly took the time to understand the dimensions and requirements of a senior PA role I was seeking to fill and, rather than filling my inbox with CVs, sent through a select list of candidates that could truly perform at the necessary level. Having chosen an excellent candidate, they then worked quickly and efficiently to close an agreement on package with the candidate and ensure a smooth landing into the organisation”.
"Once again let me say how pleased we are with how you and your Company have delivered. From the outset Debbie and her team have been most professional about what and how ROC could successfully deliver for us. ROC Recruitment has helped us successfully complete Phase 1 with our team of 420 Financial Service Specialists selected, trained with 344 already deployed. Your part in delivering this goal has been outstanding. The work and passion you have shown has been admirable and the way you have engaged with Bank of Ireland Post Office Management and HR Shared Services Team has been a credit to ROC. Thank you once again for your outstanding contribution and I look forward to working closely with you all as we build our Business for the future."
Tips for Success: from application to resignation
Application and CV
Make sure there are no gaps in your CV in terms of time – even if you went travelling for a year or similar. That kind of experience is quite valued by employers!
Submitting a cover letter is always a good idea, if you have the opportunity. The covering letter is your chance to show a bit of your ‘personality’. Keep it to one page and focus on key points that show you know a bit about the company and have the experience they are looking for.
Example of good Covering Letter
Here are more helpful pointers to help you through the stages of an interview:
Before the interview
Take your CV and a map. Leave for the interview in good time. Running late is never acceptable for an interview.
When you meet your interviewer, shake hands firmly, look them in the eye, call them Mr, Miss or Mrs unless they invite you to do otherwise, and smile.
After the interview
Any interview is a valuable experience. Use it to your advantage by going over the interview with your consultant to see if there was anything you would have liked to have handled better, or anything you forgot to say that you would like to be conveyed to the interviewer.
Discuss the offer and be certain it is what you want.
Having made your decision, cancel all other interviews you had arranged and then notify your current employer. Sign and return the vacancy acceptance form to ROC Recruitment.
Starting a new job is always exciting. However, the prospect of handing in your notice to your current employer can be daunting. Don’t worry, you are not alone - most people are understandably apprehensive. A good deal of time and effort, along with a fair amount of soul-searching has gone into you making your decision to accept a new job.
Always date your letter. Ask to see your manager/supervisor privately; and give them your letter. If you are asked why you are leaving, keep it positive (you may need them for a reference). “I felt it was time for a new opportunity” is quite sufficient if you do not wish to disclose any other reasons. You may want to add more, but above all avoid a confrontation. If all goes well, your boss will accept your resignation and wish you good luck.
Do not be bullied into submission.
