Posting your CV onto a general job’s board is a bold decision and should not be taken without considering the implications. Your CV will be available to 000’s of recruiters across the globe and could easily land somewhere which you didn’t intend.
Posting your CV onto a general jobs board is super easy, a few swipes of the mouse, 2 or 3 clicks and that’s it, really easy. The trouble is, its also that easy for a clumsy “resourcer” to download your CV and send it to, well, whomever they want.
The Gibson automotive network is not a general jobs board, we are automotive specialists, and we take great care of the security and integrity of the network.
We actively seek out and create exciting new opportunities for our registered candidates; we do this discreetly and with care.
Of course, if you want us to find you a job, we will need to disclose some details to our clients, your potential employer, about you. However, we are automotive industry recruitment specialists, and we know which aspects of your CV should be disclosed and importantly, what should not.
First things first, confidentiality. We ask both the candidate and client to agree to our confidentiality terms. Our confidentiality terms set out the terms of privacy which both candidates and clients sign up to before we start any assignment.
Once we receive your CV, we will send you an automated questionnaire. The questionnaire will take you a few minutes to complete, it’s not hard, but it is an integral part of making positive things happen.
We will ask you 6 basic questions about what we call the “big 6”. The “big 6” are aspects of your CV, which we feel describe you and your experience and importantly, it’s relevance to a potential future employer.
The “Big 6” Questions are:
1- What fires your rockets at work?
2 – What can you bring to the party?
3 – What non-financial contributions you have made at work?
4 – What KPI’s have you positively influenced?
5 – What is your style, how do you go about your job?
6 – What automotive brands have you experienced?
We don’t wait for vacancies; we actively promote the talent on our books. On receiving your “big 6” responses we get to work, utilising our network to get you in the door. Most of our placements happen within businesses who are not actively recruiting.
