Thank you for your excellent work on out project, I really didn’t believe we would get to where we are in the time we had. Please find below a testimonial for you to use as required:

“We had a very tight timescale with very specific requirements to be met, not thinking it would be achievable we started working on a contingency plan. From the first meeting with Martin I was put at ease, his knowledge of the finance sector was clearly going to be an advantage. We received a shortlist within a week, that list were all capable of doing the job and that left us with the task of just picking from the cream of the crop. We offered and have the perfect candidate starting with us within our timeframe. We are delighted with the professionalism and efficiency from Jenson Fisher”

I will have no problem in using Jenson Fisher again and recommending you to anyone that may need a finance role filled.

Angus Soft Fruits Ltd recently used Jenson Fisher to recruit a Management Accountant for a newly created role.

This was the second time we had engaged with Martin Crines and Jenson Fisher to fulfil our recruitment needs. On both occasions Martin has identified suitable candidates for us to interview.

From the outset, he took the time to understand the role and what key skills and experience were required. Throughout the process Martin was in regular contact and the post was filled very quickly.

I would not hesitate to recommend Jenson Fisher to any business that is recruiting. The process was seamless and professionally delivered to a high standard from beginning to end.

We have worked with Martin Crines at Jenson Fisher for many years and have just used his services on a retained basis to recruit an Audit Supervisor.

We were delighted by the quality of the candidates provided by Martin and the how smooth the interview and acceptance process went.

The successful candidate was offered the salary we felt was right for all, without having to be concerned about the final recruitment fee.

I would recommend Martin and Jenson Fisher without hesitation. Yours faithfully

Technology is one of the leading forces behind innovation, this is no different for the recruitment world. The next time you submit an application for a job there is a high possibility that complex algorithms will be reviewing it first. By using this method a recruiter can narrow down the most suitable candidates for the role and prevent wasting time.

Thanks to artificial intelligence (AI) and automated machine learning algorithms, the process which can be very time consuming is cut short. This allows recruiters to focus more on the top suiters to find the professional who best fits the organisation.

Now you have some insight into the recruitment process, how can you ensure that you reach employers shortlists?

Identify the primary skills

The first step will be to add special words to your CV and online profiles that are relevant to the role you are applying for. The best way to find this information is looking at the job description. For example, a finance role that includes ‘financial reporting’ as a necessary requirement for the position would be perfect to add to your CV.

Knowing the secondary skills

Along with the main primary words that you should include on your CV, there are secondary words that are just as important to add. These words are general skills that are used in most roles. They include, time management, organise, adapt, professionalism and communication. A short summary is common at the beginning of most CV’s, therefore a perfect place to include these words. 

Adding information of your duties

The more information you provide about the tasks you carry out at work will help increase the chance of AI finding keywords and selecting your profile for the next stage. Make sure you write in a lot of detail exactly what your main duties include and different software’s you use.

Making Adjustments to your titles

Companies can sometimes assign you unconventional titles that may not be easily picked up by the AI systems that recruiters use. Therefore even if it is your official title, it’s best to change it to a industry-standard title.

Formatting

It is important to use a standard CV format otherwise some algorithms will not be able to recognise parts of your application, and you could fail to make the shortlist. For example, make sure to always add your most recent position first in the experience section.

Looking out for errors

Although modern programs can notify you if any keywords are spelt incorrectly and help you correct them, they are still unable to correct all grammatical mistakes. Thus, if you make it through to the top selected CV’s, you could be halted from progressing any further due to recruiters seeing errors and marking it as unprofessional. Always proofread your credentials multiple times or get a friend to help you. A fresh pair of eyes will help provide a new perspective to catch something you may have missed.

Having a strong online present

Although not directly linked to a CV, another way recruiters use AI to find suitable candidates is through online profiles. A major mistake individuals make is not including any information in the summary section for an online profile.By using this space to highlight your skills, values and putting the keywords mentioned earlier, you can increase your chances of being shortlisted for a role.

To sum up

The heart of recruitment will always be people. Technology provides the means to help shorten the recruitment process, and it’s important for you to know the tips and tricks to make sure you’re in the top picks. However, making sure you’re prepared for interviews is just as important!
