Finance Careers is a highly reputable, customer-centric recruitment agency with an array of expertise at our disposal. We have in-depth market knowledge and fantastic network relations, meaning we will be aware of many vacancies that are not advertised, providing more opportunities for you. We also manage your application and will liaise with the client on your behalf. Finance Careers can also give CV feedback, interview advice and negotiate salaries at the offer stage.

This could be for any number of reasons. Sometimes clients are specific about industry sector experience. For example, they might have told us that they only want to see candidates with a certain amount of FMCG industry experience. It could also be based on the information we hold on you, whereby we don’t think that you would be interested in the role. For example, if you told us that you were looking for a minimum of R750,000 and the vacancy is paying R650,000. If in doubt, then please email, and we can double-check. Rest assured, if Finance Careers can put you forward for a position, we will do so!

We acknowledge all applications through our website via e-mail. If we think that you are suitable for the position then we will contact you to discuss the role within 5 working days. If we have not reached out to you by then, we felt you were unsuitable for the position, or the client has changed their job specification.

No. We screen all applications and call suitable applicants to discuss the role and make them aware of who the end employer is. Your details are only sent to a client once both you and your recruitment consultant agree to do so.

No, NEVER. We only present your details to a client after we have spoken to you about the vacancy, the company and received your permission to do so.

Of course! You can apply and be put forward for as many roles as we consider you suitable for. If you get an offer from more than one client, then the decision will be yours as to which one you accept.

Unfortunately not. As we provide a confidential service to both client and candidate, we can’t divulge such information.
