How It Works

We hold open days at our recruitment centres which provide us the opportunity to meet and engage with candidates who are interested in living and working in the UK.

Candidates who are selected at this stage will be asked to take part in several tests and interviews to assess their suitability. These are in line with our client’s requirements to ensure that we have the right calibre of candidates to fulfil your recruiting needs.

Before a candidate is placed onto our database, we will carry out several checks including;

  • Police Clearance

  • Certificates Verifications
  • Training and Employment Verification

Stage 2: Aptitude Tests

Candidates from Stage 1 will be invited to our recruitment centre to undertake some aptitude tests which are more focussed on your organisation’s requirements and the role for which you are recruiting for.

On Arrival

The candidates will be met by members of our reception team and taken to our welcome centre. Here they will expect to be housed for 2 weeks whilst the final preparations for them to commence employment are finalised.
During this period candidates will have a chance to explore local life, culture and communities to familiarise themselves to the places they will be leaving and working. We will also help the candidates help suitable accommodation that is near to where they will be working and transport links.

If the candidates drive and hold a valid licence, we will also take them through a driving course through our partner driving instructors to help them familiarise with driving and driving laws.
