• Refer students to Colleges and universities abroad
• Assist students with appropriate procedures for enrolment
• Counsel students for visa interviews
• Coordinate any refund to the students if appropriate from institutions

Job Recruitment and Selection
The Employment Equity Act and other current legislation has made it imperative that all recruitment organizations and their clients involved in recruitment and selection of staff follow a procedurally fair and non-discriminatory process of identifying the best possible candidates for any available position. THE JOB CENTRE intends to be the only leading recruitment agency dedicated to following a Competence Based Job Analysis and Interviewing.

An administratively intense and complex procedure, Competence Based Job Analysis or Profiling refers to that process of clearly identifying both the job description and the job specification pertaining to a particular vacancy within a client company. It identifies the exact required individual by clearly looking at the specific qualities, knowledge and skills or behaviour that will ensure an applicants success in a particular position. It is also the only procedurally fair process of ensuring that THE JOB CENTRE and its clients are able to fairly discriminate and appoint suitable applicants based on the exact, inherent and justified requirements of their particular organization.

THE JOB CENTRE’s Competency Based Recruitment Process focuses on applicant’s productivity and the client’s required outcomes for a position. Through a thorough brief which identifies and analyses our client’s unique requirements and after a focused screening and behavioural interviewing process, THE JOB CENTRE is able to source and identify that set of characteristics and experience of an application that will ensure long-term results.
Our recruitment campaign management service is comprehensive from inception to selection. It offers a flat fee rather than commission based on a salary. The services include:

• Review of background information
• Writing job descriptions and person specifications
• Writing and designing advertisements
• Production of application packs
• Selecting and booking media
• Administering the campaign response
• Carrying out preliminary interviews
• Recommending shortlists
• Managing interview schedules
• Attending and facilitating interviews and scoring
• Taking up references
• Arranging medical check ups for successful candidates
• Police fingerprint

You can choose to benefit from the complete service, or select the components you need. We believe that you should pay for what you actually need and for what we actually do.
