Why Choose Us

We always strive to treat candidates fairly and:

  • Be thorough in our evaluation. We won’t waste your time. If we don’t think you’re suitable, we will be open about that early on. Nevertheless, we will try and point you in the right direction whether we can help or not.

  • Make confidentiality a priority. At Optitude-360, discretion is our number one priority. We will not release your details to any client or third party without your prior consent, and we remind our clients to do the same.

  • Offer open and honest feedback. Let’s face it; no one is perfect; most of us have some areas of development. We always seek first to understand our candidates’ frame of reference and offer constructive feedback where appropriate.

  • We understand the importance of keeping you updated at every stage of the pre-selection and interviewing process during an assignment.  There is nothing worse than being a candidate and waiting for the phone to ring.  Unlike some consultancies, we do not have a "Don’t call us, we’ll call you" policy. Instead, we encourage our candidates to stay in touch with us and strive to keep them informed (good news or bad) every step of the way.

  • Where possible, we always aim to provide feedback that is both meaningful and constructive both during and at the end of the process.

Simplifying the recruitment process.

  • Often candidate engagements will last anywhere between 30 to 45 days from start to finish. The process can be multifaceted and involve a variety of stages. We understand that our candidates are keen to see the recruitment process go through a swift and, hopefully, successful completion.  In response, we work closely with our clients to facilitate timelines (where possible) and keep all parties up to speed on the current stage of the process.

  • Regardless of whether your application is successful or not, we always aim to close the dialogue properly and professionally, ensuring we are helpful and informative.
