Frequently Asked Questions

We specialise in permanent and temporary roles in Commercial, Industrial, IT and Finance. 

However, being a 360 Recruitment Agency – we work on niche roles in various industries. 

YES, you can apply and be put forward for as many roles as we think you are suitable for. If you receive an offer from more than one client then the decision will obviously be yours as to which one you accept.

We are a reputable recruitment agency with many years’ experience in the sectors that we cover. We have in-depth market knowledge and will therefore be able to make you aware of vacancies that are not advertised in the press or through other agencies. We also manage the entire application process and will liaise with the client on your behalf. Chiltern Recruitment can also give feedback on your CV, advice on interviews and negotiate salaries at offer stage.

NEVER, we only present your details to a client after we have discussed the vacancy with you and obtained your permission to do so.

No, we screen all applications and contact suitable applicants to discuss the role in detail.

We acknowledge all applications via e-mail or telephone if we think that you are suitable for the role. If we have not contacted you then we felt you were unsuitable for the role or we have not received your CV. Please check your email to see if you have received our automated response, which confirms that we have received the CV. If you really think that you are suitable then please give us a call and we will happily discuss our decision, CV’s are sometimes ambiguous and we can make mistakes as well!

Face to face registrations are always preferable, however if it is difficult for you to make an appointment to come in, we can arrange a Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Skype or telephone registration at a time to suit you.

Ideally YES please. Whilst we welcome visitors popping in, it is advisable to make an appointment to ensure there is a Consultant free to speak to you

NO! The best advice we can give is to ensure your CV is only ever sent once to a client.

"After returning from a year living and working in Australia I was looking for a job. I was contacted by Ali and quickly went in to meet her. The whole experience working with Ali and Chiltern Recruitment was so fantastic from start to finish. When I went in to meet Ali she was able to offer me interesting and relevant roles to my experience but most importantly gave me advice for interviews which was so helpful and lead to me getting a job within 4 days! Thank you so much for everything!"
