Candidates

Candidates are humans and not numbers. Individuals and not statistics. It sounds obvious but all too often the candidate experience can be anything but.

Here at Brightred our candidate philosophy is simple. We see you as people with potential, personality and ambition. We take the time to really understand your strengths and skills, your personalities and motivations, your most challenging and rewarding career path.

In return we will honestly and objectively talk through the options – be they interim, contract or permanent, small start-up or major multi-national, multi-site or international. We recognise that two candidates who look alike on paper may be best suited developing their careers in completely different directions, and within different contexts.

When giving you feedback on your options, our suggestions may surprise you. But our commitment to objective and honest feedback and recommendations is the cornerstone of successful candidate management.

  • … I have found them to be one of the most professional organisations I have worked through in my contracting career. When they contacted me initially, they briefed me fully on the specifics of the role and the environment of the client so I felt really confident and prepared for my interview. Payment has never been an issue and I get regular site visits from my point of contact at Brightred. I recommend Brightred to all my colleagues and hope to find subsequent assignments through them.

  • A first class service. The consultants at Brightred were really interested in what I wanted to do in my next role and where I wanted to take my career. They even came to meet me which was a really nice touch. When there was a vacancy they felt suited me I really felt I could trust their judgement and advice especially when it came to preparing me for interview. I would certainly use them again if I find myself in a position where I am looking for a new role.

Mark recruited me for a role at Belron. He is a very professional, reliable, friendly and knowledgeable recruiter. He has a can do attitude and has often gone out of his way to be of assistance. I’d be happy to do business with him again and will highly recommend him to any existing or future client organizations.

Alistair contacted me about a role that was a perfect match for my skill set. He kept me up to date throughout the whole recruitment process and pushed for the best deal possible for me. He worked tirelessly to negotiate interview slots that fitted around my previous job and gave me valuable hints and tips for the interview. I would not hesitate to recommend Alistair and use Brightred in the future
