How do we ensure this happens? By meeting them all face to face. Simple.

“Our goal is to connect on a personal level with our candidates, to build and sustain relationships and ensure that we consistently have a high level of candidate satisfaction. We want to guide our candidates through the recruitment process from start to finish and we can only do this effectively by meeting our candidates face to face within an informal and relaxed setting.”

We asked some of our Recruitment Specialists why this is so important?

Reason #1

“The prospect of starting a new job can often be daunting. By meeting candidates face to face we can find out more about them, learn about what motivates them and makes them tick, and understand their career expectations.”

Eliza Butt, Commercial Consultant, Peterborough

Reason #2

“We need to understand our candidates’ key motivations for wanting to change their job so meeting them face to face ensures they completely open up to us.”

                                           Jade Halil, Commercial Consultant, Ipswich

Reason #3

“Meeting our candidates face to face creates the perfect opportunity to gauge what kind of team environment they would fit in to.”

Laurie Smith, Temps Resourcer, Ipswich

Reason #4

“First impressions are so important. How a candidate presents themselves to us gives us an insight in to how they will present themselves to our clients at interview, and this can only be truly assessed by meeting with them face to face.”

         Chantelle Pretorius, Specialist Marketing Consultant, Cambridge

Reason #5

“CV’s only tell us half a story. By meeting our candidates face to face we can draw out so much more from them regarding other skills and attributes they possess and may not have thought to mention. These additional details could make all the difference to us getting them in front of our clients.”

Carol Gavriks, Embedded IT Recruitment Consultant, Norwich


“As a candidate previously, meeting with a polkadotfrog consultant face to face gave me significantly more confidence that my CV was being taken seriously in the market. Having experienced the process first hand I can further appreciate the personal touch that we give to our candidates by meeting them face to face”.

Anne Thomas, IT Recruitment Consultant, Cambridge


“Every Consultant at polkadotfrog makes sure that all of our candidates have the confidence to apply for their desired role. We offer continued support throughout the recruitment process by also providing advice on CV writing and interview techniques. We are so confident in finding the right person for the right business first time every time that we offer a financial guarantee which underpins this. Our ‘polkadotfrog promise’ essentially means that we will pay 110% of the fee back to our clients should the placement not work out. By meeting each of our clients and candidates face to face without exception, I am pleased to say that luckily this rarely happens”-

- Chris Chapman, Business Operations Manager
