Your Questions Answered
Below are some of the most frequently asked questions we have received over the years. Hopefully, you’ll find the information you need, but if you still have a question for The SLB , feel free to get in touch and we will happily answer your inquiry.
What does the SLB do ?
The SLB is a full recruitment support system. We collaborate with a range of exciting employers to offer candidates access to some exciting work opportunities from internship level through to experienced professionals with up to 10 years of post-graduation work experience.
Once you apply for a role on our website a member of our team will reach out to you to discuss the next steps and support you through the application process giving you best chance of securing the role.
Are there any fees associated with securing a job through the SLB?
As a candidate there are no fees for using our service.
Why are company names not listed on the job adverts?
The employers’ information is not shown in order to protect them from viruses and spam. It also allows us and the company hiring to manage all applications efficiently and effectively.
Something we have to be aware of is our clients pay us to secure candidates for them. On occasions candidates have been known to hear about a role through us and apply directly to the employer directly. This is not beneficial to the candidate as the employer has hired us to take care of certain elements of the recruitment process and also the candidate will miss out on the great insight and advice we have on the employer and opportunity.
The final reason is other recruitment agencies may see our clients’ names and opportunities and contact the employer in the hope of securing them as a client.
When do I find out who the employer is for a job opportunity?
Once you apply for a role a member will reach out to you via email or a phone call to discuss your application and the employer. Once you confirm you would like your application to be submitted to the hiring manager if will be processed.
No applications are submitted to the employer before you have the company information and have given us permission to submit your application.
What are the next steps once I apply for a role?
Once you apply for a role a member of our team will reach out to you via email or a phone call. At this stage you will receive information on who the employer is and the next steps of the recruitment process.
Once you authorise us to submit your application to the employer we will introduce your profile to them and report to you with feedback. If you are successful and secure an interview with the hiring manager an SLB representative will support you in preparing for the interview and will be on hand to answer any questions you have on the role or the employer.
