Personal shopping for jobs

As we all know, unemployment is low in Guernsey and we are rarely contacted by someone who has been out of work for a period of time.

Candidates normally fall into one of three categories – someone looking to better their salary and step up a rung on their career ladder, someone who is unhappy in their current job and someone who isn’t necessarily looking to move. That last one may sound odd, but it’s where we excel.

At Firstcall we are made aware on a weekly basis of available jobs. Employers also tell us about roles that are being created or vacated in the near future. It is this information that can be vital to those who are not actively looking for a new job. Mergers and buyouts can lead to positions at all levels coming onto the horizon. We have already been told of a number of jobs becoming available locally in the first few months of 2019 as a result of a management buyout.

One of the biggest hurdles we face as recruiters is misconception. Candidates tell us that the fear of their current boss finding out that they have even enquired about another job is enough to put them off taking the next step and attending an interview. But confidentiality is our number one priority. At Firstcall we pride ourselves on being recruitment consultants for people who aren’t actively looking for a job. If you give us your details we will keep a look out only for positions that would be perfect for you. And only you will know about it.

So, imagine this scenario. You’re in a well-paid position that you’ve worked hard to achieve. You’re not necessarily looking for something new but there’s that nagging feeling that your skills could be even better utilised and your career further enhanced. You don’t want the bother of looking or the difficulty of making sure it goes unnoticed.

This is where we come in. We can meet you over coffee at the weekend, or at our office which is tucked away in an accessible St Peter Port location that isn’t too visible or prominent. Confidentiality is key, and we follow strict procedures to ensure that when we come across a role that would suit you, no one else will know. You’re not contacted during office hours; we can text you and then you can call us at your convenience.
