Referrals

The security arena is a consistently developing and evolving market in which to network and we at Proprius Recruitment value the relationships we have with both clients and candidates alike.  Our focus and energy is spent developing new and existing relationships and as a result we obtain many referrals from within this niche industry.  We do offer a referral bonus scheme for subsequently successful placements and provide £££ of vouchers from a variety of well known high street retailers. 

CV & Interview Tips

Many candidates find it difficult to write CVs in this climate with varying advice and expectations.  All we can do is tell you how our clients prefer to see them - and that is to define and detail your experience within the most relevant areas for the job.  This may be that you will have more than one CV if you are looking at differing roles and areas however we would expect a candidate in security or risk to have a CV of approx 3-4 pages, highlighting projects and bullet pointing key skills.  Remember, information security is so varied and clients requirements can range from basic to complex levels with just one role title that you need to ensure your actual skills and experience detailed on the CV is relevant to the role you are applying for - if it's not on the CV, the client can assume you don't have it!  It is easier to remove detail than to create it so always try to keep an updated version as your role changes from year to year.

Once we have identified the right role, your own work really starts during the interview process.  We have compiled a very shortlist of do's and don'ts!

DO:

Dress smartly and turn up - on time!

Your research on the company

Be confident, positive & professional

Be aware of your own strengths and weaknesses

DON'T:

Be late!

Be negative about current or previous employers

Exaggerate your experience - most experienced interviewers will dig deep especially in technical areas

Swear!
