How to Convert an Interview Into a Job Offer
Phone your Future Select recruitment consultant straight after the meeting with your initial thoughts. Include both the positive and any negative feedback. We will listen closely to your views, and offer realistic suggestions, where appropriate, regarding how best to move things forward with the company you have met. There may also be an impact in relation to applications to other companies.
There is no need to rush into anything at this stage, and it is important to carry out any research or follow up work prompted by the meeting to ensure you are happy with what was discussed.
Having built up trust with your Future Select recruitment consultant, you can now work together to secure the best available financial conditions for you as a part of the overall job package.
Our recruitment consultants will put your interests first in these negotiations. It is important to be frank about your opinions, and take the time to discuss what is vital as a part of the salary and package and what is negotiable.
There is a misconception that agencies want the biggest salary and related fee possible. At Future Select Limited we ensure both candidate and employer are happy with the terms agreed. This is how we have built and are continuing to build upon reputation in the Legionella, Water, Fire, LEV, Validation, Health and Safety, Asbestos and Environmental compliance industries.
If you are offered a position verbally, either directly by a client or via a Future Select consultant, it is always a good idea to think about it before responding. At Future Select we regard a verbal acceptance as a professional commitment to be honoured; hence appropriate consideration needs to be given before formally accepting. This consideration may take a few hours, a weekend or even slightly longer. We will not pressure you into hasty decisions. We will advise on how long the offer is open to you for, and ensure you are empowered to make the best decision possible. Sometimes it is advisable to indicate a strong interest and await a formal written offer.
As with verbal offers, written offers are a matter requiring serious consideration before responding.
We value the honesty of our candidates in relation to the offers they receive as a result of our efforts. If you are waiting for an offer via another agency, just say so. We can help you secure the extra time you need to make an informed final decision.
