Those who know Rowlands will be aware that we pride ourselves on our proactive, friendly and engaging approach to recruitment.

We understand that there are times when you wonder whether the career you’re in is the right fit. You may enjoy your position, but you’re also open to new options and fresh challenges that provide greater rewards.

Job searching, however, can be very time consuming and especially difficult when we are juggling a multitude of tasks, both in our professional and personal lives. So, with that in mind, we introduced the Work Around You service that ensures you are in control of your future career path. We're here to talk before work, after work or even at weekends.

Why our ‘Work Around You’ initiative is different

Work Around You is unique because it offers candidates recruitment registrations outside of normal working hours. Candidates will be able to select a time to talk about their prospective career opportunities before or after work, at a time that suits them. Your busy week shouldn't be holding you back from your next challenge, and we’re here to ensure that your career aspirations come first.

No time during the working day? No problem!

Can’t make it during the busy weekday period? We understand! Work Around You is also offering you the chance to speak to our recruitment experts over the weekend. All you need to do is get in touch with one of our team members to arrange a time that’s convenient for you.

This can be done via telephone, Skype, Teams, Zoom or WhatsApp calls or meeting one of our recruitment experts for a relaxed, informal chat.

If you’d like to know more about our flexible approach to recruitment, please do not hesitate to get in touch with our friendly team today.

​That’s what I would call a wonderful service and really taking care of those who need extra help to continue their career. Thank you!
