Candidate Journey

The recruitment journey from beginning to new start...

Signing up with a recruitment agency to help you find your dream job, should make things easy for you. It should feel like you’ve got someone doing the legwork for you, like you’ve got a job search PA or your own job coach.

​And that’s exactly how we like to work, we aim to make finding your new perfect position a painless experience.

Let us help you find your dream job...

When you get in touch with us, we will work in an open and honest way with you, and that’s all we expect in return.  Together we will establish exactly what you can give to a role and what you need from that role. It’s this simple yet successful partnership that delivers such great results.

We will always aim to meet with you in person at the start of our journey together. This can be at Vanilla HQ in Market Harborough or by meeting up somewhere in the middle. If it makes more sense we may even set up a Skype call instead. The aim in all of this is for us to really get to know you; not just learn about your work history and skills set, but about your motivations, ambitions and personality too.

Why Vanilla?...

The impact that your job has on your life is huge, with the majority of us spending longer at work than anywhere else it's no surprise. Therefore, the decision about where and how you work and perhaps more importantly what you do, shapes so much more than just your hours between 9am-5pm.

In every conversation we have with anyone looking to make a job change, our role can be very different depending on what you need from us. Some conversations are about us giving guidance, some are about offering support, some are for reassurance, and some are just about confirmation - we understand that every person who contacts us is an individual and has their own unique story, history, skills, ambitions and goals.
