The recruitment process
Our recruitment process is pretty straight forward. Depending on the urgency of the recruitment, the process could take as little as 1-2 weeks. Obviously if we are not recruiting for a specific role, the process may take longer while we wait for the next round of interviews for rosters.
1. Submitting an application to us
3. Interview & check references
5. Deploy or roster

Some tips and tricks to help you prepare for the application and interviewing process
Every organisation has its recruiting nuances. The problem is most organisations play a shell game and expect you to guess what they want to see. So, to make it a little easier on you, we thought we might share some The tips and tricks for our process:
1. Tips and tricks for submitting your application to Antylles
At this point in the process, we just want to categorise your profile by asking you some simple profiling questions in 2 areas: (1) professional skills and experience, (2) regional experience and language skills.
All you will need to do is complete this step is a copy of your CV (in plain text format). That’s it. No need to email or upload your CV or do up your CV in another template. We’ll ask for that later when we start to get more serious.
2. Tips and tricks for getting your CV short listed
Once we receive your application, we will promptly review it and let you know if we are keen to explore working together and add you to next batch of interviews. Normally we can get back to you in about 2 weeks depending on our workload. But just in case we don’t, please do drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org to give us a nudge.
We’ve notice in our careers as consultants there is a metric tonne of advice out there on how to write a CV – some good, some bad. So here is what we encourage you to consider:
|3. Interview & check references
When the time is right, we will hold a round of interviews to determine your suitability for a particular position and/or for one of our rosters of experts. At this point we will ask you for a one page CV in our format to give you a chance to showcase your expertise in a particular area.
When it comes time to submitting a CV or resume document to us, your formatting will be a consideration (check out how poorly formatted CVs impact recruiters in this study tracking the eye movement of recruiters scanning CVs). We will also ask for a professional reference for the key projects or roles you put forward to showcase your experience.
4. Deploy or roster
Successful candidates will either deploy or be rostered on our pool of experts. More on this later in the process.
