When we say at Flow Communications that we value diversity, it’s because we do. We are Kit Kats, Bar Ones, Ferrero Rochers, Lindt, Smarties and Mars bars, all mixed together – because being different together works for us. That is how we got to the top of our game.
Also, when we say our people are our most important asset, we mean it. It’s about valuing ourselves and one another, all the time. And it doesn’t stop there. We partner with our clients to make a difference to their businesses, and ultimately make this world of ours a better place to live and create in.
Does this sound like somewhere you’d like to work? If you want to be part of this winning team, here are some tips to consider when submitting your CV:
1. Read the job specs
Read the job specs carefully and respond to each one in your motivational letter. If you are applying for more than one job with us, change your motivational letter accordingly. We know you can copy and paste. Don’t!
2. We read your email first, not the attachments
Make it quirky and gripping – we have to read through many applications. Think of how you catch a fish – the email is where you hook us and then pull us in gently. And we like gently.
3. Make your CV easy to read
What is Flow interested in? Your experience, your qualifications, your achievements, what you can offer Flow (see tip 1).
List it chronologically from current day backwards (and remember tip 5).
And check the grammar, spelling and punctuation.
4. Some words and phrases to avoid
“I hope this email finds you well”
“I am a highly motivated individual
“I am a hard worker”
“I pay attention to detail” – especially when there is a glaring typo in the same paragraph
“Strong work ethic”
And forget the emojis
Keep it short and sophisticated! If you ignore (or forget) all the other tips, but you remember this one, you may get a phone call from us.
We are always looking for new Flowstars to add to our mixed bag of favourite sweets – but not just anyone will do.
