Personal Development

As a candidate, getting clear and consistent advice as to what you should be doing with your CV, your interviews and your job seeking can be difficult.

But with over 25 years of job filling experience, we’ve got a fairly good idea about what you should be doing! With this in mind, we’ve put together a dedicated Personal Development section to ensure that all the advice you need can be easily found, digested and accessed from a centralised home. Here, you’ll be able to find special features, tips and tricks, how-to guides and lots more.

On top of what you can already find, we’re going to be developing and adding to this section indefinitely, so make sure you keep checking back here if there are things you’ve missed. Equally, if there’s something you want to know and think we’ve missed, let us know! The chances are if you’ve got a query, then someone else will have the same one too. We want to share our insights with as many candidates as is possible, so if you’ve got a worry, let’s address it.

All the contributions to this section have been viewed and analysed by a range of demographics within ProTech so as to ensure that the advice you’re getting is relevant, regardless of what stage you’re in of your job search or career.

If you want to get in touch with us to discuss anything on here, or alternatively, just have an informal chat about your career, don’t hesitate in calling us directly on 01442 299000.
