Even if you think you’ve got everything covered, spending a few minutes refreshing your memory will be time well spent – and it just might make the difference when it really counts.
First impressions count – and your CV will determine the first impressions that prospective employers form of you. It’s vital you get it right because a good CV will ensure you get noticed and ultimately secure you an interview.Learn More
Having reached this stage of the selection process, you need to ensure that you do yourself justice – and preparation for your interview is the key to achieving success. Your interview is your chance to demonstrate to the interviewer that you have the right personality, qualifications, experience and relevant proven track record, and that your recruitment consultant was right to recommend you for interview with the company.Learn More
Hopefully, if you have made it to an assessment centre you’ve already completed a basic level of research regarding the business, but before you attend its definitely a good idea to take a look over this again. With some industries evolving daily you never know what today’s breaking news could be – you don’t want to be the only one in an assessment unaware of your prospective employer’s latest news!Learn More
Psychometric tests are used by employers to find candidates with the relevant skills, intelligence, personality, and cultural fit for their business. The profile they’re going to build will allow you to show that you can solve problems, you are a team player, and that you will fit into the culture of the business.Learn More
So, you’ve been for an interview and you’re waiting for the feedback; this is possibly one of the most testing parts of finding a new role. One of the hardest things to do is wait, be careful not to bombard your interviewer with questions or chase an outcome prior to the agreed time frame that was set.Learn More
Congratulations! You’ve landed the job of your dreams and now comes the dreaded conversation with your current employer where you have to let them know you’re leaving. The best advice we could give is to make sure that you leave in a positive way and on good terms, don’t burn any bridges!Learn More
Just when you have gone out and found the perfect new job, gone through the tough stages of interviewing and have been offered your dream role, upon resigning from your current position, your employer could make you a counter offer leaving you in a state of confusion.Learn More
Starting a new job can be scary. Sometimes, entering into a new work environment can make you feel as if you step foot on another planet. In order to succeed, both socially and professionally, you’re expected to learn the culture, follow the dress code and pick up on the acceptable behaviours as well as mastering your daily role.Learn More

“Having only been with one employer since leaving education, I haven't experienced a Recruitment Company before and it was great to deal with my Consultants at McCarthy Recruitment as they were professional, delivering a quality service throughout. Having worked in retail for 14 years I have built a wide network of contacts all of whom I would absolutely recommend to your company.
Thank you to McCarthy for your support and commitment!”
I had a fabulous experience with McCarthy Recruitment! Very much appreciated how they kept me in the loop and updated me with the details. I won't hesitate to recommend them to my friends, family, and colleagues.
Once again thank you again! Yes, I'm still dancing!
I would like to say it was a pleasure to work together with Claudia and Keith. They were both very helpful and professional throughout the whole recruitment process. Keith helped gain more confidence during interviews and gave me lots of useful tips which allowed me to secure a job at Aldi as an Assistant Store Manager. I would definitely recommend working with McCarthy Recruitment! Thank you again for all your help and support :)!!
First time & 1st class experience with McCarthy Recruitment from start to finish and more with regular catch up's after starting a new role. The level of communication has been outstanding, in particular Adam has been brilliant at keeping me up to date with every step of the process. I would not hesitant to recommend McCarthy to anyone looking for there next step in their career.
I have recently secured a new permanent role through McCarthy Recruitment and the whole experience from start to finish has been great. It was my first experience of this company and they are refreshingly different to many other recruiters out there, great communication throughout the process and lots positive energy. I wouldn’t hesitate to use them again if was ever in need and the consultant who’s looking after me, Emily, has been a super star!
Just brilliant. Abbie and Adam were amazing and so supportive. I applied for a job on a Sunday night, had my first contact the next day and then every day through the week someone checked in with me, had the interview the Friday morning and was offered the job that afternoon. Thank you both so much, I'm made up to be changing career after 9 years!
