  • Once you have submitted your application, your CV will be assessed by one of our specialist recruitment consultants. Should you be required to attend an interview, you will be contacted telephonically or via e-mail – make sure you check your email and keep an eye on your phone!
  • Before your telephone interview, make sure you’re in a quiet space and if you’re being called on your mobile, make sure you have strong signal.

    If you require any reasonable adjustment to your telephone interview or any stage of the recruitment process, please contact info@blackpenrecruitment.com.

  • Our interviews take place at our Cape Town Head Office. First, you will be asked to complete a computer literacy test, typing test and English language test. If you pass these tests, you will then move on to a personal one-on-one interview.

    We use these interviews to give you the opportunity to demonstrate your skills, behaviours and suitability for the role and to help us determine your potential for success. It’s a great opportunity for you to gain a good understanding of the role, as well as your career opportunities.

  • We are committed to equal opportunities and aim to ensure that our recruitment process is fully inclusive. Our interview facilities are barrier-free, and we will also liaise with the prospective employer about work place and work process accessibility. 

    If you require adjustments to any of the stage of the process, please let us know and we will make all reasonable adjustments.

  • Please bring your current CV as well as your ID. If you are not South African, please bring your passport and current visa.
  • References will be checked after your first interview, before your application is submitted to the employer. Any introduction to the employer is subject to receiving two satisfactory references and a satisfactory criminal record check.
  • Please let us know as soon as you are aware that you won’t be able to attend. Don’t worry, we know that sometimes things don’t go to plan so we will do our best to rearrange your interview if at all possible.
  • You are welcome to apply immediately for other positions that you think are suitable.
