Candidate handbook

We understand that taking on a new venture may come with a lot of questions, we’ve all been there before. So, we do our best to answer any queries you may have within this free downloadable handbook.



  • What are the benefits of registering with Oakes Recruitment?

    You will be registering with a proactive, forward thinking business that has unrivalled, in-depth local market knowledge and is often aware of many vacancies that are not advertised in the press or with other agencies. In addition, we offer CV feedback, interview advice and carefully negotiate salaries for the offer stage.

  • Will you send out my CV without contacting me first?

    No, we will only present your details to a client once we have first spoken to you about the position, the company, and have received your permission to do so.

  • I have sent my CV to Oakes Recruitment for a position I have seen advertised, but I have not yet been contacted. Why is that?

    There could be numerous reasons why we may not have contacted you, and none of them mean we’re not still working towards achieving your goals. Sometimes clients’ decision-making processes are understandably just a bit longer. Sometimes clients need to be very specific about the industry sector experience required. Sometimes it could be based on the information you have given us (for example, a particular wage might not meet your expectations). If you feel you would be ideal, and have not heard anything yet, please give us a ring and we can go through the position with you in person. In fact, if in any doubt about anything, or just want to say hi, do call. We are always delighted to catch up with you.

Thank you for your enquiry, we will contact you ASAP
