TOP TIPS: registering & first day at work

Here’s the deal. You have seen our Contract Personnel advert on a recent visit to Carrow Road. You have heard an advert on the radio, seen some roadside boards and are now wanting to find out some more information.

After following us on social media and having a browse through our brand new website, you are sure you want to register for work with us!

With so many temporary and permanent jobs being added to the website every single day, there’s no surprise that something has caught your eye.

The next step (if you haven’t already worked for us before), is to come and register with us. This can be done at each of our offices in Norwich, Thetford and Great Yarmouth or on the Job Bus – when it travels to different locations across the region. We like to meet people in person, to help find you the most suitable employment opportunity and find out about your previous work experience.

When you attend your registration appointment, you will nee to bring with you an up to date CV and three key items of paperwork.

Your proof of eligibility to work – this can be a passport, your European Economic Community Identity card (EEC ID) your Full birth certificate AND proof of your National Insurance Number (NIN) – this can be your National Insurance card, a payslip or an official letter from HMRC or Jobseekers that shows your NIN.

You will also need proof of your home address (such as a utility bill) and a written/Character reference.

If you are applying for a driving role, a little extra information is needed. Please see the link HERE for what you should bring along with you.

Once our friendly consultants have found you work and you have accepted our assignment – it is now time to make a fantastic first impression.

Here are our top tips for impressing on your first day in your new job.

  1. It goes without saying that it is imperative to arrive on time for your first day. Set an alarm and give yourself enough time to travel to your destination. And make sure you have a hearty breakfast too!
  2. Show willing and be up for trying different tasks and roles that may be on offer. The best way of learning is to ‘do’ the tasks in hand – so be prepared to try new things.
  3. Ask plenty of questions during your first day. This may be more relevant for particular roles than others, but show genuine interest in the company you are working for by asking about anything you think is relevant.
