The decorations are down, the last of the Christmas chocolates are gone, and everyone is back to work as we roll into a new decade. If you’re looking to make a big change and shake up the start of your new year then look no further, our consultants can help you find your dream job!
The first step to securing your dream job is straightening out your CV! It’s the first impression you get to make with your future employer, so it’s important it leaves a lasting impression.
It’s vital you update your CV before applying for any jobs as an outdated CV can come across as lazy and will leave a poor impression on the employer. Before rushing head first in to your job search, take the time to add any new qualifications, skills and awards to your CV.
A CV should be easy to read and clearly laid out. Don’t expect the hiring manager to take time deciphering yours, they’ll have a stack of applications all vying for their time.
Lastly, every job has a different set of requirements, so tailor your CV to each role by removing irrelevant information for each position you apply for. You want to make it as easy as possible for the employer to find the info they’re looking for!

Once you’ve been asked in to interview for a position, the next hurdle is nailing that interview! They may be daunting but don’t worry, we’ve got all the tips you need to beat the nerves and land yourself that dream job!
Firstly, don’t forget to bring vital documents you need in the interview, like your CV, ID, and portfolio. If you’re not sure what to bring, don’t hesitate to ask. Just make sure you get in touch a few days in advance of your interview.
The last thing you want to do is arrive late, so plan your route ahead of time, and check to ensure you’ve got the key details for the interview, such as time, location and date.
Again, if you don’t have all of the details, just ask beforehand.
Confidence is key, start with a firm handshake, sit up straight, and maintain eye contact throughout the interview. Also try to keep your answers relevant and to the point. We recommend taking some time to practise answering common interview questions with friends or family, it can really help boost your confidence on the day.

ENS has been our sole agency provider for the past 8 years. During this time we have worked in partnership to establish an agency service that provides us with the assurance that ENS staff are flexible, highly trained and able to adapt to our working environment across all of our diverse services.
ENS has been able to support our services to a very high standard throughout our geographical locations. Key Performance Indicators often exceed agreed outcomes.
Our relationship with their senior team and operational supervisors is professional and open. We are assured that our long standing working relationship with ENS will continue.
To this end we would not hesitate to recommend ENS as an agency provider to support their organisation.
We needed to fill two last minute vacancies with high quality teachers. With this brief, Julie from ENS did not disappoint. One candidate was from Canada and Julie ensured that the move over went as smoothly as possible both for the teacher and the school.
What impressed me the most was how Julie listened to exactly what I required and so no time was wasted on my part, sifting through candidates who would not have been good enough for my school. I would highly recommend ENS to another school looking to fill their teacher vacancies.
My daughter Lynda has enjoyed 24 hour care provided by ENS since July 2013. The care staff are all well trained & briefed as to her complex healthcare regime & are also very sociable. This is very important to Lynda who loves to talk &interact with them. They also manage her household budget, encourage her to participate in domestic tasks within her capabilities, & promote a healthy lifestyle. The administration of ENS is excellent & has ensured that Lynda has a regular rota of carers & that when stand ins are necessary that they have had shadow shifts with her.MG
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the hard work and support you have offered our Foyer and Parent and Child Scheme in managing the placement of temporary staff.
We appreciate the level of consistency and continuity your staff have bought to the schemes and would not hesitate in recommending the services of ENS Recruitment.
