London Staff Bureau will collect the personal details which you provide to us for the purposes of providing you with work-finding services only, unless we are required by law to disclose it. In providing this service to you we will need to transfer your personal details to our client companies.
We will not pass or sell your information to any third party for marketing purposes.
Personal data will be processed in accordance with the rights of data subjects under the 1998 Act and shall be kept for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which it was processed.
Personal data will be accurate and where necessary kept up to date.
Find out as much information as possible about the company and the job beforehand. Look at their website as well as talking to our Agency. You should also ensure you have a copy of the CV that the Agency has sent to the Client, and be prepared to answer some of the popular questions that are asked at interview.
If you are asked if you have any questions about the job, please DO NOT ask about sick pay, tea/coffee breaks, etc. This is not what the prospective employer wants to hear. Also, don’t be tempted to ask what the job entails. If you do not know what the job is, why have you applied for it? Anyway, I am sure that you will already have this information from your Agency. Good questions to ask include why the position become available, opportunities for progression, and when can you expect to hear whether you have been successful.
First impressions do count. Check the dress code with your Agency. If you are taking papers to the interview, carry them in a suitable case or folder. Carrier bags never create a good impression.
Arrive on time
Make sure you know exactly where you are going, how you are going to get there, and how long the journey will take. Never walk into the company more than 15 minutes before the interview. Employers appreciate people being slightly early or on time, but turning up over half an hour early puts pressure on the prospective employer.
Remember to greet your interviewer with a smile and a firm handshake. Make eye contact with your interviewer. There is nothing worse than talking to someone who is not even looking at you! Do not speak negatively about previous employers. Be positive and enthusiastic and try not to give ‘yes’ and ‘no’ answers.
After the interview
Call your Agency and give them an honest account of how you felt at the interview. If you loved the job, but were a bit unhappy about the package – your Agency will be more than happy to negotiate on your behalf – but they can only do this if you tell them.
FINALLY - Good luck.
