How to register

The registration process at ESS could not be easier. You can apply for one of our positions online via this site or you can contact us to make an appointment over the phone. You will have a face to face meeting with a consultant who will talk to you about your job search and aim to match you with one of our jobs and clients. You will be required to bring the appropriate ID as proof of right to work in the UK. Please bring with you either your passport with proof of address or you can use your Birth Certificate with evidence of your National Insurance Number. You can also use your European ID Card with evidence of your National Insurance Number. We look forward to hearing from you.

Interview advice with our clients

The most important advice we can offer you is to always prepare thoroughly before any interview - this will help to make you feel more confident at the interview. Before your interview find out everything you can about the company, especially what they do! We will provide you with as much information as we can but it’s worth checking if they have a website and look at it (if you do not have access to the internet ESS Employment Ltd offer free access for interviewees to check websites of any companies ESS Employment Ltd are sending you to). TALK TO YOUR CONSULTANT – they can help you with the information that you require.

Make sure you re-read your application, thinking through your own career and the questions the interviewer might ask you.

Try to anticipate the general questions which the interviewer will ask and also prepare some questions to ask them.

Think of words you can use to show that you are sufficiently motivated to get the job done well and that you will fit in with the company's organisational structure and the team in which you will work.

You should always dress smartly for the interview no matter what job you are applying for and make sure you leave home earlier than you need to on the day of the interview - you may be delayed by traffic or for other reasons.

Be courteous to all employees of the company as you never know who you may be talking to. The person walking past you while you are waiting may well be the person who will do your interview so make sure you are at your best while waiting for your interview. At the interview itself you must be positive about yourself and your abilities.

And most importantly SMILE.
