Being a consultant

When you apply for a job through Academic Work the job is either a recruitment or a consultant job. The difference between these is that if the job is a recruitment job, you will be permanently employed at the recruiting company. For a consultant assignment, you are employed by Academic Work.

Being a consultant comes with many great advantages. It is a great way for you who want to start your career by getting to know several companies or industries, test and identify what you think is most interesting and want to focus your career on, and by that means continue learning along the way. As a consultant, you have a Consultant Manager at Academic Work helping you at every step.

The Consultant Manager is your closest manager and will guide you through your employment, help you develop, and ensure that you thrive. In addition, will the Consultant Manager ensure that the laws and agreements with your assigned employer are being upheld and will help you take your next career step when the time is ready.

What to expect in the recruitment process?

We screen applications as they come in, which means that we will contact candidates that match the profile we are looking for ongoing. The first contact is usually a phone interview, and if we see you are the right candidate with the right competency and motivation you will be invited to an interview with one of our recruiters. This interview lasts approximately one hour, and the goal is to see if your competency and background match what our client is looking for. We will do a reference check and we recommend you have two references. The next step is an interview with the client in the company you will be working at. Afterwards we, together with the client, will do an assessment of the candidates and offer the job to one of the candidates. All the candidates will get feedback after the process is ended.

And remember – you can apply for several jobs at the same time.
