 INTERVIEW TECHNIQUES 

We have all been in an interview where our nerves have got the better of us and you don’t give the best answer you could have or presented yourself accurately. This is why at Mercia Social Care we want to offer you a helping hand by providing you with the advice and support that will set you apart from your competition. 
 
We recognise that interview advice is dependent on an individual’s situation, experience, strengths and weaknesses, which is why we offer a tailored advice package either over the phone or in person. For your free consultation with us, please call us on 01159 993 4282 or email info@merciasocialcare.co.uk to book an appointment. 

 CV DEVELOPMENT 

Whether you have a complex CV with a long work history or this is your first time creating one, we offer a free CV development service for all registered candidates! Here at Mercia Social Care our staff have had comprehensive professional training on CV writing and how to make a CV stand out from the hundreds of others. We not only format and proof read your CV but help you create the content that will get you noticed and shows you at your best! There are lots of ‘CV advice’ articles out there, but here at Mercia Social Care we like to offer a personalised service as we understand that what works for one person, will not necessarily work for another. This is why if you would like to access our CV service then please book your free appointment, which can be conducted either over the phone or in person. Please contact us on 01159 993 4282 or info@merciasocialcare.co.uk to arrange an appointment. 

 ROLES & SALARY 

Our consultants are expertly trained to recognise the importance of both service and sales. Therefore as well as getting a personalised service, we also take a proactive approach to building relationships with client contacts to obtain exclusive roles that would ordinarily not be found through the standard channels. 
 
We always negotiate on your behalf to get you the best rate of pay from the client. We are an ethical company with staff who pride themselves on their honesty and integrity, meaning we ensure you receive all the benefits available to you at all times. This is constantly monitored by our Compliance Manager, leaving you safe in the knowledge you will be getting the best possible package.
