Brook Street just are not...
I have found myself in one of them situations where finding permanent work is becoming very difficult, have tempted before however I find it's always an option so I thought i would try my local branch of Brook Street in London N22, I had passed the window on numerous occasions and am well aware that the jobs displayed in the window are not always kosher.I went in a was greeted by a front of office lady, I explained i would be going away in Sep for two weeks as I think it's better to let them know beforehand when you are available and she basically told me not to bother trying to regsiter until i returned in October as a CRB (paid for by the candidate) and refs etc would take ex amount of weeks.
This was all done without anyone seeing my current CV and with the assumption that I would require a CRB at all.Basically there atitude was you must be available to work for us at the drop of a hat, this is without guaranteeing that they would have work ready for me (us) at the drop of a hat.
Don't bother, go to an agency that are ready to help you now and are willing to looks at your skills and experience.
