We get 500 CVs a day and our website gets 250,000 hits a month' says Patrick Luby, Director of Clarendon Parker ME, 'but only those CVs that belong to the areas we are specialized in go in the database.

Most agencies will accept CVs only against advertised vacancies; so don't rely purely on recruitment agencies. Check our list of Career Agencies Search websites for more info.
