A bit like listening to a Prince album on a sunny day, joining the Softweb community for free is a genuine win-win. If you already know why, you can register now.
If you're not yet in the know, here are ten great reasons:
1. Tailored email alerts
We'll email you tailored job alerts which match your personal criteria as soon as we post them to our website - and we're not the sort of firm that only does this as a last resort. Every role we work goes live immediately online.
2. Multiple one-touch apply
Because you've created a profile, you can then login and one-touch apply with your CV - saving you the endless loop of filling out the same forms and uploading the same documents.
3. CV review service
You take the time to register your CV with us, therefore we take the time to read and review it - it's only fair. Rather than discard or ignore the ones that don't quite hit the mark, we'll get back to you with questions, suggested improvements or areas that could be expanded to best demonstrate your expertise.
4. Access to non-advertised roles
In special circumstances, some clients can't advertise their vacancies, for a variety of reasons. These vary from legal and compliance to the role not being 100% signed off or the incumbent employee is still in post. Regardless of the reason, one thing's for sure: registering with us ensures you'll be considered for these opportunities.
5. Technical testing and profiling
Our clients come to us because we're experts in Software and Web technology, and we love getting to know the people we put forward. This means that when we're working on a role, we often technically test and profile every person we put forward. It ensures you don't take a role you'd want to leave within days, and the client gets the skills they need. It's something very few recruitment firms provide and we're immensely proud of our unique qualification procedures.
6. Interview coaching
Unless you're new to this rodeo, you'll know that with most agencies it's hit and hope. With us, it's different. We've put you forward for a role because we think you're one of the three best people available in the UK for it. It stands to reason that we then want to do everything we can to help maximise your chances of success - and we realise that coming across naturally in interviews can sometimes be hard. That's why we offer full interview coaching - from scenario planning and objection handling to full dummy run throughs.
7. Career planning
You know where you want to go but you're not sure how to get there. Or maybe you don't know where you want to go at all. Whatever it is, we've helped shaped the careers of hundreds, if not thousands of people just like you and we've seen careers progressed from grads and newly qualifiers to CTOs and Technology Directors in FTSE100 firms. Drawing on this experience, we can help give you insight and options to the routes available to you - and can even offer you mentoring from fellow professionals who've started out on similar paths.
8. Salary benchmarking
Like everyone, you want to ensure you're being reimbursed fairly but it's always difficult to know if you are. As a registered member of the Softweb community, you can ask us at any time if the role you're in or being offered is paying a reasonable return.
9. Industry insights and career tips
Just like you, we're in this for the long haul. This means we're not transactional and we don't think of you as a CV or profile - we want to get to know you and support you throughout your career. We might not always be able to place you, but hopefully we can help you achieve your goals and career ambitions. We'll share the industry insights and career tips we have now and collect along the way - it's one small thing we do that can hopefully makes a big difference to you.
10. £200 referral scheme
That's right, £200. For each person. Every time you refer a candidate to us who we place in a role, it's £200 to you. So each time you get sent a role that's not quite right for you but perfect for someone you know, let us know who they are and we'll take it from there - keeping you informed of their progress to successful placement along the way.
