Application Success - FD Recruit


Your application has been received. We will be in touch soon to confirm if your application has been approved or declined.

Thank you for registering your details with FD Recruit. Assuming your application is successful, we will be delighted to have the opportunity to represent you when a suitable opportunity arises. Once your application has been accepted you will be emailed your unique login password.

At FD Recruit we want to make your life easy. We have designed our candidate registration portal to allow you to manage your account, updating it as your requirements change. In order to protect your confidentiality, we ensure our clients do not have access to our database.

When a corporation engages with us to appoint an FD/CFO, we approach and discuss the vacancy with registered candidates matching the role’s criteria. There’s no need for an initial registration interview but we will conduct a video interview about specific roles to assess suitability.

Our aim is to increase your chances of finding suitable employment. With this in mind, FD Recruit consultants spend most of their time generating new vacancies for members and responding to client inquiries. Therefore, they may not be able to discuss individual vacancies with every candidate who meets the broad criteria of a position.

However, please be assured, that now you are a registered member of FD Recruit. You will be considered for all relevant opportunities alongside all new applicants. Therefore, you will not be required to apply for any advertised positions within your search criteria.

Unfortunately, due to the high volume of candidates we have registering with us, you may not always be shortlisted for a vacancy you believe you are suitable for.

This might be due to specific criteria provided by the client, which the consultant is only allowed to discuss with candidates who are shortlisted for the position.

In the event you are shortlisted for a role, we will not send your details to a client until you have given us your express permission to do so. Your details will only be presented to the client after you have received a detailed brief from one of our recruiters and you are happy to be presented for the role.

Thank you once again for registering with FD Recruit. We look forward to working with you.


How will I be contact about vacancies?

When a suitable opportunity arises, we will notify you via email or text about a potential vacancy that matches your requirements. The message will include instructions on the next steps. We will usually provide a calendar link to schedule a video call to discuss the opportunity in more detail.

If I am registered and see a role that interests me, how do I apply?

If we find a role that fits your search criteria and you meet the client’s requirements, we will contact you. There is no need for you to apply for the position.

If a role matches my requirements, will I definitely be contacted?

Not necessarily. There may be many candidates who match the broad criteria for a vacancy. In these cases, it will not be possible to discuss the vacancy with every candidate who meets these broad criteria. When this happens, we will scrutinise the ‘nice to have’ criteria set by the client until we have a manageable number of candidates we can reach out to. Rest assured that we will want to present the client corporation with the most appropriate options matching their requirements. Therefore, if you genuinely do not have a chance of securing the role, we will not contact you just to make up the numbers.

Will you send my details without contacting me first?

No, we would never send your details without first speaking to you about the opportunity. Not only is this unethical, but we want to ensure we only present the client with candidates who are both suitable and genuinely interested in their opportunity. It is not in anyone’s interest for us to do otherwise.

Will I be required to attend a registration interview?

As specialist headhunters, our approach differs from that of traditional staffing agencies. While standard agencies often conduct general registration interviews in anticipation of future openings, our primary focus is on actively generating vacancies. This means we dedicate the majority of our time to identifying and creating opportunities tailored to your expertise.

Consequently, we do not conduct routine check-in calls or require you to attend a registration interview until there is a specific vacancy to discuss. If you are invited for a registration interview, it will be with a particular role in mind, ensuring a more targeted and efficient process.

What do I do if my search criteria changes?
