I have sent my CV to Harpers, why haven't I had a response?

At Harpers we appreciate contact from potential candidates. There could be a number of reasons why a recruiter may have not been in contact. 

1. Our clients may have asked for specific skills and experience that you don't have. 

2. You might not have the right skills or experience that match the other candidates on our database. 

If you have not heard from a consultant within three working days please assume that you have not been successful on this occasion. 

It's not the end if you have not heard back from us within three working days, we will keep your CV on our database so that if we match you with a suitable vacancy, we can get in touch.
