Ensuring the best version of you at an interview


An interview is a test. The best way to pass a test is of course to prepare. Our team are on hand to ensure you receive the best interview preparation possible. This will include insight into the employer’s selection process, context behind why the firm is hiring and background on the firm and their business strategy.

Managing the feedback process


In recent years some employers are moving towards a direct resourcing model. This means they have their own internal recruitment consultants or utilise an outsourced “Recruitment Process Outsourced” model to access talent. A common complaint we hear from job seekers is they have applied directly and had no feedback at either CV screen or interview stage. By working with Meraki Talent, we intermediate the process and gather feedback on your behalf to bring clarity and efficiency to your job seeking process.

CANDIDATE PLACEMENT

Meraki were an absolute delight to work with and were invaluable in securing my new role within the asset management industry.

From helping shape my CV through to the interview stage, Nathan was by my side every step of the way and always had my interests and career at the forefront. His industry knowledge is incredible and even goes as far as specific roles in varying companies, from daily tasks to personnel and expectations.

You won't find a finer agent who truly looks out for the next opportunity which is right for you. A professional who clearly has the knowledge and relationships to help move your career forward."

CANDIDATE PLACEMENT

Meraki Talent represented myself on my recent change of employment and relocation. Andrew has built a strong network enabling him to find suitable roles and matching them with the right candidates, this also means he can gain additional information on the positions which proves invaluable, both at interview stage and helping to decide if the role is as set out.

Throughout the process from initial contact through interview, offer, negotiation and on boarding Andrew was highly professional, personal and communicative helping make what can be a difficult and stressful time much easier and as pain free as possible.

Andrew was a pleasure to deal with and I would not hesitate to recommend him."
