Our Process


Whatever has prompted your job search, Bond Williams Professional Recruitment are here to help.

We understand that the most important thing for any candidate is to find the right job, regardless of where it is posted or if an agency is handling the recruitment. However, at Bond Williams, we take a proactive approach to finding suitable job seekers the right role, and urge anyone looking for a new opportunity to get in touch to see if we can help.

How we work

We specialise in finding candidates both full and part-time permanent and temporary roles across Dorset, Hampshire and Oxford within the following sectors:

To ensure we can genuinely help you in your search for a new job, our experienced consultants will always aim to speak with you in over the phone or in person if possible.

By getting to know you better, we can come to understand your strengths, weaknesses and past experience in more detail and discuss what you’re looking for in your next role. We can then ensure we are searching for and securing that perfect position from both a skills and cultural fit. 

Step 1 – Get in touch

If you’d like us to help you find your ideal role, then there are several ways you can let us know in the first instance.

  • Register your CV – This will ensure you are notified of any relevant job opportunities via our regular email alerts or directly from our consultants according to current and previous job titles on your CV. When a suitable role becomes available, one of our consultants will be in touch.
  • Search all available jobs and apply – If a particular role catches your eye, apply online and then one of our consultants will be in touch to find out more about you. If they think you are unsuitable for the role, they will still contact you to discuss other potential opportunities.
  • Call or email your local Bond Williams office – If you have not seen any suitable roles on our website and want to discuss your next career move with us, give one of our team a call and they can discuss your options with you.

One of our consultants will be in touch via phone or email to potentially arrange a meeting at one of our offices.

Step 2 – Meet with us

If we think we can help you and you’d like Bond Williams to represent you in your job search, we’ll arrange an in-house meeting with one of our specialist consultants.

This meeting should be treated as an informal interview, and you should dress appropriately and bring a copy of your CV and any work that you feel is relevant.

The purpose of the meeting is to discuss your experience and skills, realistic job aspirations and salary expectations. We’ll work through your CV, suggesting any improvements we feel will help and let you know of any suitable vacancies.

We’ll also give you a greater insight into companies that could use your skills and other types of roles that you may not have considered.

Step 3 – Honest feedback

Honesty is vital on both sides and following the meeting, we will let you know if we think we can help. If we can, we will start championing you to our clients immediately and be in regular contact with you about potential opportunities.

Equally, you must let us know if a role or employer is not for you or if you have been approached for the same role from another recruitment agency.

Step 4 – Interview stage

Our ultimate aim is to secure an interview for you and once this is achieved, we will ensure you are fully briefed and have all the relevant information to give you the best chance of success.

You will need to do your own research and of course the interview, but we will guide and help you wherever we can during this process.

Following the interview, we ask that you call us with any feedback and thoughts on the role, company and people.

We also ask clients for interview feedback as well and we will pass on feedback and any additional information to help both parties.

If a second interview is required, we will arrange this with you and again brief you on any preparation required. If you are not successful, we will obtain detailed feedback from the employer and let you know.

Step 5 – Starting your new job

If you are successful, we will work with you and your new employer to negotiate terms, salary, benefits and start date, all the while keeping both parties informed.

Charmaine @ Bond Williams was very pleasant, helpful and totally professional throughout my dealings with her in my search for a new role. She gave me the confidence to go for a role which I was unsure if my skills would be enough. Thanks to her I ended up getting both phone and face-to-face interviews and being offered the role. Thanks again
