I have sent a copy of my CV to The Recruitment Solution and I can see vacancies on your website that I think I am suitable for. Why have you not called me?
This could be for any number of reasons. Sometimes clients are specific about industry sector experience. For example, they might have told us that they only want to see candidates with a certain amount of automotive industry experience. It could also be based on the information we hold on you, whereby we don’t think that you would be interested in the role. For example, if you told us that you were looking for a minimum of £45,000 and the vacancy is paying £28,000. If in doubt then please call and we can double check. Rest assured if The Recruitment Solution can put you forward for a position, we will do so!

Will The Recruitment Solution send my CV to clients without contacting me?
No NEVER! We only present your details to a client after we have spoken to you about the vacancy, the company and received your permission to do so.

I have applied for a vacancy and I have not been contacted- why is this?
We acknowledge all applications via e-mail, if we think that you are suitable for the role then we will contact you to discuss the role within 2 working days. If we have not contacted you by then it could be that we felt you were unsuitable for the role or that we have not received your CV.

I have applied for a vacancy online, does this mean that my details have been sent to the client?
No! We screen all applications and call suitable applicants to discuss the role and make them aware who the end employer is. Your details are only sent to a client once both you and your Consultant agree to do so.

If my application for a vacancy through The Recruitment Solution is rejected, can you provide me with the hiring company’s name?
I’m afraid not! As we provide a confidential service to both client and candidate, we simply can’t divulge such information. 

If you really think that you are suitable and we have got it wrong then please give us a call and we will explain our decision as CV’s can be very ambiguous, so mistakes can be made.
