Once in a Lifetime Opportunity!

Here at Seltek, we’re looking for someone who can make things happen! An ideas person, an influencer, a tireless, enthusiastic, energetic, determined winner! All we’re asking for is that you get three things done every day.
These could be:
Interviewing someone (to find and identify a relevant person to interview – one hour. To conduct a full and in-depth interview – one hour)
Sending a CV to a client (matching someone to a job, making a couple of calls to check you’ve got everything right – one hour. Sending an email – one minute)
Arranging an interview for a candidate (usually a result of sending the CV) (making three or four calls – one hour)
Finding a job (making twenty calls, talking to five decision-makers – two hours)

That makes six hours and one minute, leaving eighty nine minutes for loafing around, chatting to team-mates etc. Well, there might be a few other things to do, but – we’re sure you’ll agree – it’s all eminently ‘do-able’.

If you could achieve this simple schedule – actually doing three significant things every day of your working life, you would – assuming long-term company averages – earn £73,000 per annum!

If that sounds interesting, please telephone Guy Buncombe on 01279 657716 – make that the next significant act of your life!
