To us, everyone is unique.

Our ethos is simple. You deserve our time and effort to place you with the right employer which is why we like to get to know you at the start of your journey with edenfx.

In the HSEQR field, there are a number of people suitable for any given position, measured by any or all of time, experience, skills and qualifications. There may be several who prove to be good candidates for the role, however there is only one person who is the ‘right fit; the best fit’.

We know how important it is to get the right job fit and career path to develop both as an individual and as an employee in your chosen field. We also appreciate that by getting it right the first time and placing you in a long-term career position, we are reducing our earnings potential from you as a repeat candidate. However, we hope that our success in placing you will be passed on, so please do ‘pass it on’ and become one of our wonderful advocates.

“Alison and the edenfx crew have been utterly amazing. They take the time to understand you, your experience, your fit in an organisation, your goals. They use it to sculpt positions that are just right. Alison introduced me to my current role on a contract basis, and within 3 months was a permanent position at a higher level. The edenfx team are masters at their trade, their professionalism and rapport is unrivalled and I appreciate what they did for my career.”

Our commitment to you:

On applying to join our specialist contracting division, one of the team will contact you to discuss your skills, knowledge, qualifications and parameters for work so that sourcing and placement can be effective. We do not oversell contractors to clients; it is about being realistic in people’s capabilities and being able to deliver to specification rather than promising something which clearly cannot be met.

To support this process we provide full references and/or testimonials to our clients to showcase your work. For all appointments, we discuss the requirements of the role in detail with the client to provide an agreed scope of work and then provide you with a full briefing and arrange a suitable induction to start the contracting process.

We will of course be in touch at regular pre-agreed intervals and will maintain contact with the client to assess progress against the assignment.

Contracting is not for everyone but for those looking to supplement their existing hours or who enjoy short term project work, then this is for you. We respect diversity and operate within the regulatory and legislative frameworks –  all of your information is treated in confidence.

Resume Services

Is your resume letting you down? You may have spent time and effort on your career development plans, attended courses for professional development only to submit a sub-standard resume to an employer. Hiring managers take an average of 20 seconds to high level review a resume and so you need to make those 20 seconds count. Talk to us about making sure your resume is on the YES pile after those initial 20 seconds.

Interview Skills

The interview process is an art in conversation and our HR Consultancy services work with you to provide the interview techniques to give you the best possible platform to work from to enjoy the interview process and demonstrate your value. edenfx HSE can tailor our one-on-one coaching sessions to your specific requirements; this may be coaching for a specific interview or a general session as an overview to refine your technique.
