We are planning to shake up the way people access employment opportunities on the Isle of Wight.

We hope to help transform the perception of recruitment being a purely employer focused industry.

We are redressing the balance, making the jobseeker (that's you) central to all our strategic goals.

Therefore, along side our dedication to adhere to the IRP’s code of conduct (see below) we have added our own promise to jobseekers, along with a few things we expect back from you.

We promise to:  

  • Complete a thorough registration process to find what you are looking for
  • Investigate your desires and goals thoroughly
  • Work with you, if required, to improve your CV
  • Give advice and feedback on interview performance where necessary
  • Work with you to seek out suitable employment opportunities
  • Only send you to interviews with companies you have pre-approved
  • Aim to retrieve swift feedback from employers over you applications
  • To always try to advise you of the best way forward for your career

You promise to:

  • Be open and honest with us about your capabilities and motivation to work
  • Provide us swiftly with the correct documentation to allow us to recruit for you
  • Provide honest and true accounts of your education and work history
  • Attend pre-approved interviews without fail
  • Provide us with feedback about interviews and or offers of employment
  • To work in partnership with us
